Whether you are planning a wedding or a corporate event, catering has become a key resource to take into account when organizing a meeting with guests. What are the five most outstanding trends in the catering sector today? Let’s go over them:
1- Open-air catering: The Mediterranean climate allows for hosting open-air events during many months of the year. What better way to surprise your guests, therefore, than with an outdoor buffet? This is why it is crucial to have a catering service that can provide, for instance, such distinctively Mediterranean fare as rice dishes and risottos. Some surefire choices include rice with prawns, creamy lobster rice or an ever-tasty mushroom risotto.
2- Bread in the spotlight: Bread has gone from being a mere side to playing a key role on any table worth its salt. Bread for appetizers, sandwiches, canapes or sweet breads is bound to be a star ingredient at any event catering.
3- Ham and cheese, an absolute must: Is there anything that goes better with bread than ham and cheese? That is why ham slicers and careful selections of cheeses, which can be paired with different breads and even with grapes, nuts or jam, are an absolute must for catering services.
4- Themed tables: These are ideal for corporate events and celebrations due to the fact that they add a fun touch to catering. Themed tables related to, for instance, countries of origin, zero kilometer products, rice dishes or even sweets will allow you to spread your guests around based on their tastes.
5- Home delivery catering: Were you aware that El Principal de l’Eixample also has a home delivery catering service in Barcelona? This is an excellent option for rural weddings, events in museums or an autumn party in your home; wherever you would like to be served, we can go there.
