12 Dec How to Get the Most from your Tasting Part – 1
On cues and references from friends & family, you found the venue, booked the much known or popular music band, and of course, set the date of your event. So, How or on what basis have you thought of selecting the food services? Maybe you’ve already hired a caterer or are you still stuck between choosing from the top 2 or 3 champions of your city, based on references? Which usually is what people do without having an idea of the kind of dishes they may be able to make, and the nature of taste of those dishes.
You’re wondering when or whether, ‘If you should ask for a tasting?’. Why NOT! Obviously, a resounding YES! Food is the most expensive and eagerly anticipated item on any event, not considering the budget, which for many, could also be quite important. So, if you would be scheduling a tasting with your choice of caterer(s) or are making a pre-arranged visit to the actual event venues of a handful of caterers, which should help you select the perfect fit for your taste and budget. Here are some do’s and don’ts to help you reach a precise decision whilst choosing a Caterer and the kind of dishes you wish to serve at your event!
DO try to be flexible with your day and time. While most caterers would prefer to only accommodate you for tastings on weekdays since their kitchen’s busy on weekends for previously booked events. At Shagun Caterers, we always try to make allowances for all our clients, but usually, we request that you book your tasting for weekdays during business hours.
DON’T expect to taste every item on your menu! Pick a selective sample from your proposed menu, of which — if you like the taste and style of the items presented at your Tasting — should be indicative enough for all the majority of the items selected on your final menu for the day of your event.
Yeah, That’s more like a big show ain’t it! Shagun Catering is here just for You!
Now, special occasions are hosted to make memories worth a lifetime! Ain’t that truer when you think of Shagun!
