Every diner in a fine dining restaurant expects their food to look just as good as it tastes – but can the same be said for catering? It is in many ways a sad fact that people don’t think of catering as fine dining, but instead, images of sandwiches and buffets and finger food come to mind. Catering can be so much more than this. It’s the fine dining experience without the restaurant.
Presenting food beautifully is half the battle. People eat with their eyes as much as their mouths. As a caterer coming in to provide food for events, you need to have your wits about you and know you have all the right equipment for both cooking and presenting your food beautifully. You should consider crockery, cutlery and glassware as well as the food itself. Have as much influence as possible over the whole process, so you can please diners more.
