Planning your special day can bring a variety of emotions… from excitement and fun to lots of pressure and stress. However we have you covered in regards to the catering.
We have recently been named ‘The Best Wedding Caterers in the UK’ in the Hitched Wedding Awards 2018! So we know what we are talking about. We’d like to give you some top tips when planning your wedding catering…
1) Food stations are a huge trend right now!
Since we started wedding catering in 2015, we noticed a big spike in people’s love for food stations. Basically they are small stations of different types of food that your guests can approach and select what they want. The idea behind our food stations is that it creates a social aspect to your wedding. It also allows your guests to try a variety of different foods, instead of having a simple plated dish. Our food stations include Iberico Ham stations, Oyster stations, Doughnut walls and Yakitori stations.
2) Seasonal food is a must!
Here at Ross & Ross Food we pride ourselves on quality and a bespoke service. We provide this excellent quality by always using seasonal food in our clients bespoke menus. Using seasonal food ensures the produce is fresh and of excellent quality. This, therefore reflects in the standard of our food and evidently our clients are always blown away. We pride ourselves on the idea of supporting local, so always try to use local producers around the Cotswolds.
3) Sharing boards are great for socialising
Sharing boards are a great idea for your guests to connect and socialise, whilst tasting amazing food! Some of our sharing boards include: Our famous Scotch Eggs & Coleman’s Dressing; Hot Smoked Salmon; King Prawns & Lemon Mayonnaise and Cotswold Cured Meats. Hopefully these will give you some ideas, if you are looking at the idea of sharing boards. They are also a great opportunity to try a variety of foods, instead of one traditional option.
4) Trust in your suppliers
Once you’ve decided who is going to cater for your wedding, you must put your trust in them! You have chosen them for a reason so you know they are going to a fantastic job. We ensure there is regular communication with our clients to ensure they are happy at every stage of the process. All of our clients have had extremely positive things to say about our food and service which is why we are a trusted caterer. Once you have been through your ideas and requirements, just relax and leave the work to them.
