Food makes a party, and the entertainment of course. The menu in this article is sure to get your guests talking or shut them up while they enjoy the mouthwatering treats you are going to lay on for them!
It’s always a good idea to have at least two courses when catering for a private party. This stretches out the evening and ensures your guests enjoy your company just that little bit longer. Three courses is just classy and four or more you’re just spoiling your guests. So what catering menu will make you the talk of town? Lets look at some ideas below.
The starter is a very important component of a meal as it sets the tone for your banquet. Soups make good starters as they are light, and easy to make seasonal too. Ideal starter menu dishes include Cream of Mild Stilton and Broccoli Soup, Chicken Liver Terrine with Cream and Brandy or seafood dish like Trio of Fish Terrine, Cucumber Salsa, Herbed Foccacia.
By now, the pace of your dining experience is set and your guests are ready for their main meal. There are a variety of choices when it comes to main courses and the three below will win hearts and stomachs over:
- Beef dishes always go down well and items such as Roast Top Rump of Beef, Horseradish Sauce and Yorkshire Pudding with all the trimmings are tried and tested
- Another dish surely to earn you more stars is the Breast of Chicken Chasseur served with white wine sauce, Tomatoes, Tarragon, Mushrooms and Shallots
- With many people adopting vegan or vegetarian lifestyles, it’s prudent to include classic vegan dishes such as Portobello Mushroom Tart, Double Cream, Scrambled Egg, Chives on your menu
