Parties for the masses are back on, and if you’re playing host at your next gathering, how much thought have you given to what you’ll be putting on the plate?
It doesn’t take much before you’re bogged down with all the prep and getting your pad ready in time. If you were planning to tackle all the catering yourself, why not take a load off and organise finger food catering with a professional Perth caterer instead?
No sooner will you be able to sit down with a nice glass of wine and actually enjoy the company of your friends, rather than rushing around like a headless chook getting the grub ready.
Need more convincing? Here’s some compelling reasons why.
Finger food catering = less food waste
Sometimes our eyes are bigger than our stomachs – we’ve all been there before. Having bite sized portions means you’re less likely to have leftovers, compared to a plate full of food. Your guests will choose to eat what they feel like, when they feel like. In And perhaps even eliminating the need to have plates in the first place!
Food waste is a hot topic these days and it’s one of the reasons why finger food catering is such a popular choice for parties and events.
Another reason why you should stay out of the kitchen! Not only is cooking for your guests time consuming, but who wants to spend a long time cleaning up after? If you have an open plan kitchen, the last thing you want is guests seeing all your dirty kitchenware, prep work and ingredients sprawled all over the bench as they walk by.
Satisfying the pickiest taste buds
It’s an obvious one, but having choice and variety is easier when you opt for finger food catering. You don’t have to settle for one or two dishes. Offering up a mix of cold and hot options with different flavours ensures there will be something for everyone to enjoy. With finger food catering, you can also easily cater for different dietary requirements and picky kids!
Stretch your budget further
No matter what size event you’re hosting, you always have to consider how much you’re going to spend on feeding your crowd. When you start talking food and drinks, it’s very easy for your budget to blowout. When costing up finger food catering, you know exactly what you’re getting and what to expect. In some cases it can also be a more affordable catering option.
No dining setup required
Who needs to bother with a fancy sit down when you’ve got finger food catering! Of course there may be occasions where a 3 course sit down menu is more appropriate, but if you can alleviate the stress of setting up too much, then why not? Especially if you want to maximise the space you have to entertain.
Finger food encourages mingling
Because you’re eliminating the need to have your guests parked on a seat to eat, you’re giving them the freedom to move around and mingle. This is great where you might have a mix of people who don’t know each other, as it opens up the opportunity to start a convo.
