If you’re planning a Christmas party, an absolutely essential feature to get right is the food. It can make or break an event. Why? Food provides a fast-track method of getting guests approval, as it can keep them occupied entertained, well-fed and warm all in one go.
The Christmas season provides a whole different atmosphere when it comes to catering. It is a chance, as well as a pressure, to pull out all the stops and give your guests something unique. After all, mediocre Christmas parties are typically associated with boring buffets and stodgy sit-down meals.
This need not be the case.
Three hot trends
- Care about quality – it’s not only the content of the food which matters, but where it comes from. Guests are likely to be impressed and eat with a smile on their face if you can speak more on how you sourced the food and how sustainable it is. This is especially important and can be a mark of quality when it comes to meat!
- Buy British if you can – Christmas is an ideal time to make the most of our local markets and help support British farmers. This can enhance the taste of your planned food too, especially if you co-ordinate dishes around items which are locally in season.
- Interactive and exciting eating – buffets are becoming worn-out and the catering market is crying out for something different. That is why options such as a hog roast are particularly popular: offering fine food as well as a visual spectacle.
