Weddings can be big business for a catering professional. They also provide an interesting opportunity to cook many different types of dishes and get the balance just right for an ambitious and driven caterer. These are some of the things you should do in order to successfully cater a wedding:
- Check how many people you are going to be required to cater for from the very beginning. If it is more than you can cook for on your own, this will give you plenty of time to find some help in the kitchen.
- Check what style of food the bride and groom want. They will usually want a sit-down meal for the wedding breakfast and a buffet for the evening reception but never make any assumptions. People now choose all kinds of wedding food styles, like hog roasts and BBQs.
- Have a test run with the bride and groom. Offer them lots of options and let them taste them properly so they can make informed decisions about the food for their big day.
