13 Feb The Catering Checklist for Events Part – 1
Good food brings people together, and caterers offer ready-made food for guests to enjoy. It’s not enough to just cater to an event though, it needs to be catered exceptionally well. That means planning prep for the big event in detail. Consider the steps that must be completed and write them down. Assign jobs to specific team members. Plan everything out with time to spare, so completing the event with success is easy. One of the best ways to start your planning is by looking at a checklist for catering an event. Think of it as your basic inventory plan, and check off each item before leaving your kitchen on the big day. Healthy Catering is vitally important for most events!
The Table Settings
Being Caterers, it’s vital that you have all the necessary table settings. The checklist must include both decorative and functional elements. With the right tools and equipment, the event will look stunning and guests will have all they need to eat. Here’s a breakdown of the most important table settings to have on your checklist for an event.
- Salad plates
- Dinner plates
- Bread plates
- Fabric or paper napkins
- Wine glasses
- Water glasses
- Sugar holders
- Salt and pepper shakers
Equipment for Serving
Unless the event is going to be buffet-style, a good set of serving equipment is indispensable! The right gear makes it easy to distribute food and drinks to the guests of the event. Try achieving a balance of classy-looking, and sturdy items for the perfect results!
- Bus bins – those plastic tubs for holding dirty dishes and food, after people have finished eating. Must not proceed without getting several of these!
- Serving trays – Trays are necessary for serving everything unless the event is to be buffet style.
- Water pitchers- Try for durable pitchers that look nice as well. Have enough to keep at least half the servers stocked during the event because refilling water is a major component of any event.
