Catering requires the production of food on a much larger scale than usual. It may include catering for parties, weddings, functions and other events where lots of people are present. When upping the amount of food you are going to be cooking, there are certain ways you will need to approach the transition. Make sure you are as organised as possible. You should prepare as much of the food ahead of time as you can. The preparation is going to be the part that takes the longest, as it will involve chopping vegetables, collecting together ingredients and making sure everything is ready to be cooked. If you can begin ahead of time, make sure you do. You also need to make sure you have the right equipment. You will need a bigger oven to cook in bulk and will need large saucepans to be able to cook big enough portions.
