When it comes to providing food for any type or size of event, we understand how presentation impacts your catering experience. It’s crucial to pay attention to every detail, no matter how minute they may appear. From the colour and texture of the food, to how it is displayed on the plate, every element plays a key role in creating an enjoyable experience for your guests.
Why Presentation Matters
People always say “You eat first with your eyes”. The visual appeal of your dish has a direct impact on the perception of taste and quality. If it’s clear that the person making the dish didn’t put effort into presenting it, even the most delicious dish can be spoiled. You can apply the same rule to make even the simplest ingredients look exquisite and appetising.
A well-plated dish has an effect on the overall mood of the event. When done correctly, a dish can create a welcoming and enjoyable atmosphere, elevating the event as a whole for your guests. Add a touch of extravagance and class to your event by investing in a catering team.
Key Elements of Catering Presentation
A skilled chef will sometimes spend just as much energy on displaying the food as they do preparing it! When thinking about presentation, there are several key elements to take into consideration, such as the colour, texture, shape and form, as well as space and arrangement. Also looking into some props and accessories for your dish can help take things to the next level. These elements must work in cohesion with one another in order to create the right effect.
How We Enhance Catering Presentation
Over the years we have developed several techniques that we utilise regularly to enhance our catering presentation. From choosing the right plate size and shape to garnishing with edible flowers or fresh herbs. This will instantly highlight your food’s best features and give the impression that it has been freshly prepared.
We also ensure that we tailor the presentation to the theme or style of the day. This will create a cohesive blend between the event and the food.
More than anything, consistency is key. We ensure that every plate leaving the kitchen is identical to the one before it. A high level of attention to detail is essential for excellently presented food. No one likes to get a smaller plate of food than someone else!!
