One of the most important parts of the wedding party is the catering service. However, you have to be aware that there are many different types catering services. You need to choose beforehand what type of service you want to make it a lot easier for you when searching for caterers in Sydney.

Two of the most common choice for wedding catering services are sit-down catering and buffet catering. Before jumping into the final decision, find out first the pros and the cons of each service.

Sit-Down Catering

Sit-down catering is the most formal catering service you can get for your wedding party. However, the trouble here is that you have to be careful in arranging the seats. Often, it is a dilemma for the bride and the groom when creating the seating charts as guests may not go along well with their tablemates.

Also, the seating assignments alone can make some family members feel bad. It often happens when relatives come without notice or unexpected. Nevertheless, sit down catering means less food waste. Depending on your menu option, sit-down catering can be less expensive than buffet catering.

Buffet Catering

Buffet catering is quite traditional seen as casual and not so formal. However, it offers more flexibility for both the hosts and the guests. With buffet catering, picky eaters are no longer a problem since there will be a lot of food options on the table.

Among the drawback of buffet catering is the long line. Guests will have to spend time lining up to finally get their food. Buffet catering is also more expensive and more food waste, especially if you had the wrong estimates.

The Bottom Line

Either catering service for wedding parties in Sydney is great. Nothing can be handled with good planning. Whether you go for sit-down or buffet catering, you can still come up with a kick-ass wedding party. All it requires is your creativity and of course, finding the right people to work with.

Spit Roast beef from Sydney Caterer

How to Carve Beef
www.allsuburbs.com.au
A freshly prepared roast beef is indeed tempting. However, it is very important that it carved neatly. The method that you follow to carve beef plays a vital role in enhancing the flavor. This article lists some simple steps on how to carve beef to perfection.

Tools Needed for Carving Beef
A cutting board
A carving knife
A meat fork

Steps to be Followed for Craving Beef
After you take out the roasted beef from the oven, allow it to stand for about 15 minutes so that the juices inside it can settle and spread evenly making the tender than before.

Sharpen the carving knife to carve the beef smoothly. Some quick swipes of the knife on the knife sharpener tend to point the blade to make it at optimal quality.

Hold the whole beef firmly using a meat fork before you begin carving.

Carve the beef across the grain by keeping the knife at a regular angle for every slice of meat. If you carve across the grain, the juices of the beef roast will remain within the roast. Thus, you will end up eating extremely tender slices of beef.

Tips for Carving Beef
Use a sharp knife with a pointed tip to carve beef. This will help you to carve neatly and accurately.
Care for your hands and obtain a better grip for keeping the meat stable while carving by using gardening gloves.

Choosing a wedding wine

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

Choosing a wine list for your wedding doesn’t have to be as daunting at all! Sydney Wedding Caterers have created a guide for you so here are things to bare in mind:

Quality

Wine is a very special part of the reception which can help to spoil your guests and be a great addition to your wedding dining experience.

Many reception venues will allow you to bring your own wine but this may have a corkage fee – remember to check.

Variety

When planning your wedding reception the bride and groom must consider the amount of guests that will be attending and they remember they will have different tastes and preferences. The solution to this is to provide plenty of variety.

Offer two varieties of sparkling, white and red wine. Therefore the guests will arrive, offer them a sparkling white and sparkling rose so that when first course is being served you can move on to still wine varieties. Guests who like crisp, refreshing and young white wine will enjoy Pinot Grigio and others who prefer something with a bit more weight to it will like the fruity flavour to a creamy vanilla Chardonnay.

It’s best to offer two contrasting red wines such as Merlot which boasts of a smooth and soft texture with subtle red fruit flavours and then we have Shiraz which is a more robust and fruit forward style red wine with a cherry flavour.

Offer white and red wine throughout the wedding reception so that your wedding guests can make their own rules so that perhaps they would prefer a red with their chicken or fish and a white with their steak.

Sydney Wedding Caterers offer a great selection of food TO GO WITH YOUR CHOSEN WINE – from moreish spit roast buffets to deluxe surf & turf buffet. Get your wedding catering sorted today and checkout www.sydneyweddingcaterers.com.au for more information.
