Canape and Bowl Food Party Ideas

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

Everyone loves to party, right? But only a very few of us would admit that we enjoy to play the role of the host. Of course, it would be nice to become a guest instead of a host. It is true that preparing for a party is never an easy thing. The preparations that a large corporate gathering demands can truly be exhausting. But the thing is that even a small gathering at home like a garden party can also be tiring. Do you know that is our main problem? Yes, it is the food.

It is a fact that party hosts usually get into a lot of trouble in the food selection as well as in the food preparation. This is the reason why we hire Sydney caterers so as to make things a little bit easier. Some canapé and bowl party ideas for parties in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Adelaide and anywhere in Australia are presented below as your guide.

Be Creative. Remember, you are the host. Thus, you have all the right to be creative in almost everything about the party especially with the food. Miniature food selections lately are becoming a hit. With this, we can easily find in canapé parties little platters filled with healthy selections like tiny doughnuts with organic strawberry jams prepared in the most creative way.

Be Tasty. Yes, creativity is very important but you must also consider the quality of the food. Be sure that the food creatively prepared is also tasty. Nicely cupped fries in a cone shaped paper inside a glass can be perfect example that you can be tasty and artsy at the same time. With the right caterer at hand, you can always make this possible.

Be Healthy. Finally, canapé and bowl foods must be healthy servings too. Hot and cold bowls can be available with healthy servings like fresh tomatoes and yummy onion rings.

Worst Things Caterers can Do

Monday, September 9th, 2013

If you are a frequent host of parties in Sydney and you never miss to hire Sydney caterers for those events then you must have had good working experience with them. However, some folks are not as lucky as you. The sad truth is that, there are some food caterers around the globe that are not as efficient as we expect them to be.

Here are the worst things that food caterers can do:

Bad Food. Yes, you have paid a large sum of money to the caterers! Either you have paid for a package or for individual and per person rate, the fact remains that you paid. Because you have paid, you expect that you will get the value for you money. But instead of serving good food, what was served was food that is either uncooked or overcooked and unsavory. You have not only wasted a lot of cash on this end! But you have also created a bad impression on your guests. Double jeopardy, as they say.

Bad Service. Okay, the food is good. But how about the service? Are there enough utensils for everybody? Is everyone treated well? Is the bartender attentive to the requests of the guests? Are the service crews courteous enough to guide the guests to their table?

Unprepared. You wanted a beautiful garden wedding. Everyone was wearing pastel suites and dresses. Flowers were properly arranged and the table drapes lovely positioned. The food is good. The only problem is that, your caterer does not have an alternative plan in case the weather will change. It rained. So, what happened? Everyone was soaked. No canopies were set up for shelter. And your caterer claims that they were not informed that it will rain!

Did not come at all. Perhaps the worst thing that a caterer can do is being missing in action on the date of the event. Reason? Because their schedule was mixed up! They thought your event would be the day after tomorrow and not today!

Surprising and Unique Things that Food Caterers can Do

Friday, September 6th, 2013

However, there are some caterers who would provide for addition services on top of the ordinary tasks of a caterer such as food preparation and arrangement of the venue. Here are a few interesting things that we must know.

Kick start. Every party must be energetic and full of life, right? But normally, even before the party starts, some boring moments can transpire. This usually happens when most of the guests would come in late or would refuse to settle on their respective tables. With this, it can hard to pursue the original plan for the program. But exemplary caterers would help you get over this normal party dilemma. On the alternative, caterers would provide for an entertainment number (e. g song or dance number) to catch the attention of those who came on time. Caterers have their own master of the ceremony to see to it that the program will properly flow as planned.

Photo booths. Yes, partying is not all about the food and the music! It is also about taking pictures. If you can observe, photo booths are now offered by caterers. The photo booth can be situated at the entrance of the venue or anywhere within the area. The booths are fully equipped with accessories and other funny materials like wigs, hats and colorful costumes.

Provide free space. By free space we mean a coach on the adjacent room where the party is held where guests who are not so fond of loud music and the crowd can stay. Cups of coffee or wine can be offered to the guests.

Play pen. It is inevitable to have little ones in your party. Caterers can set up a play pen for them so that their parents can have a good time partying.

Secrets to Mouth-Watering Bite-Sized Fried Chicken

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

It seems that friend chicken is among the oldest chicken recipe that we know. Yes, we love chicken when it is deep fried. Children and adults favour fried chicken. Why? Perhaps not just because we love chicken or that we love anything that is fried. It can be because that we have developed several ways on how to enhance our classic fried chicken.

In various finger food partiesin Sydney, bite-sized fried chicken servings are never missed. Our Sydney caterers provide us with some tips on how to come up with mouth-watering fried chicken for our parties in Sydney.

Fry or Oven It. As the name implies, fried chicken needs to be fried. That means you will need a large pan, plenty of oil and a good amount of fire. But we also know that dip fry cooking can be a little bit unhealthy because the oil will soak into the chicken meat and will be absorbed. Lately, chefs suggest that it can be possible to oven the chicken subject to a considerable amount of heat and the same mouthwatering bite-sized friend chicken will be the result. The second option can be a healthier way to do it.

The Chicken Itself. The taste of the fried chicken will be dependent on how you marinade it. Some buttermilk marinade with the finest spices can make the tastiest fried chicken.

Sauce. It depends whether you want to have sweet and rich gravy or you prefer the hot and tangy red chili sauce. You can even invent your own sauce like mixing some soy sauce and apple cider. You can have mayonnaise if you love to.

Delish It. There is no absolute rule in food preparation and that holds true even with fried chicken. You can have onions, tomatoes, parmesan cheese or vegetables servings like broccoli, carrots, mushrooms and lettuce.
