catering trends for 2024
a touch of whimsy. we love to make food fun!
elevated comfort. foods that your guests love to eat, bur presented with a unique modern twist.
global flavors. as more and more guests consider themselves "foodies", guests are looking for something unique. asian ingredients are popular and ethnic food stations or exotic twists on a familiar dish add intrigue.
late night snacks. dessert is over, but the dancing and merrymaking continues -- passed comfort foods like mini burgers or fancy fries, or a pretzel bar help close on a delicious note.
interactive. guests love create-your-own stations or engaging with chef-attended action stations.
plant based options. alternative proteins, dairy alternatives are all the rage in large metro areas, but increasingly are common requests everywhere.
more than just cake. dessert stations and sweet miniatures continue to be popular options, with less emphasis on a traditional cake.
things to think about as you envision your reception
casual, formal or somewhere in between? this will help determine menu, china vs. disposables, and service style.
buffet? plated? food stations? do you want your guests to sit with their table without the interruption of getting up? or do you want them to get to choose what they eat? or give them more options with food stations?
what do we like to eat? maybe the most important question of all! what do you love to eat and drink?, where do you like to go out? what foods would showcase your personality or story to your guests?
what dietary restrictions or preferences do our guests have? increasingly, guests have these and may forget to communicate them in advance. it's always a good idea to ask on invitations, but sometimes you can plan for the common issues (gluten free? vegetarian? dairy free?)
