A standard buffet can be brought to life with delicious canapes and finger food catering. If you are organising a working lunch or, simply want to add flair to your party food, a finger food buffet can be an appealing option to consider.
A professional catering company will be able to deliver your business lunch to your premises at a time to suit. If you order hot food, they should even be able to deliver it just when you need it to ensure it is warm when you eat it. They should also be able to prepare fresh sandwich platters with a variety of favourite fillings and can include options for vegetarian, gluten free or other specific dietary requirements. If you are unsure about the dietary requirements on your guests, speak to your caterer to ensure you can offer something to suit all needs and tastes
Finger food doesn’t have to be limited to cold vol au vents and pizza slices. Your caterer will be able to provide you with a list that sounds so delicious you will want to eat it all immediately. Options for finger food can include:-
Chicken Goujons with Lemon Mayonnaise
Piri Piri Chicken Skewers
Sausage Rolls and Pork Pies
Butterfly Prawns with Chilli Dip
Smoked Salmon Pate Toasts
Thai Fish Cakes
Vegetable Spring Rolls with Plum Sauce
Onion Bhajis with Mint Dip
Selection of Italian Bruschetta
Red Onion and Brie Tarts.
However, almost anything can be made in a small single-bite portion size so if you have any favourites, make sure you speak to your caterer and see if they can create something specially for you.
There are many benefits to a finger food buffet over other types of catering including a sit down formal meal. Firstly, the cost per head for a finger food buffet will be considerably cheaper than a sit down meal. They are also much more social than other forms of catering. The finger food or canapes can be circulated by professional waiting staff whilst your guests interact with each other, or served from a traditional buffet set-up allowing your guests t choose the exact amount of food they would like.
It’s worth speaking to your catering company about your choice of venue so that they can advise you on whether a buffet table or, staff circulating would work best. They will also be able to provide you with professionally trained staff to ensure that you can concentrate on entertaining your guests, relaxed in the knowledge that they will all be fed and satisfied.
