2 More Tips on Planning Enough Food for Your Catered Event

When making an estimate of how much food you might need for your next catered event, there are a lot to consider. For instance, consider the fact that not all your guests will have the same appetite. Some will eat more, while others will eat less. You need to plan accordingly. Also, identify the popular items in your menu and order them in large quantity from your halal food catering company. We already shared some tips on how to plan enough food for a catered event. Here are some more tips.

1. Breakfast

If your event starts early morning, consider serving your guests a healthy breakfast. Typically, the breakfast should include at least two beverages, such as tea and coffee or tea and fruit juice. Also serve some cakes or muffins with the beverage. At Continental Delight, we offer a wide variety of cakes to choose from. For instance, you can serve mini blueberry muffins or slice chocolate cakes. In addition, you should serve a main course. For instance, it could be spicy seafood or a fried noodle item.

2. Dinner

If you are planning to serve a plated dinner, consider including at least four appetizers per person. Complement those with some deserts. For instance, you can serve a red bean soup or a green bean soup. When it comes to beverages, keep at least four or five options. The main course should be a single serving of around 200 grams per person. In addition, make sure you have at least three side dishes. For instance, we offer Japanese fried Gyoza, honey golden prawn dumpling, fried shrimp bomb, to name but a few. It is always a good idea to include some seasonal and local dishes in your menu. That way, you can save money and allow your guests an opportunity to try some local foods.
