There are many choices for outdoor day & evening catering, i.e street food inspired vans, pizza caravans, crepes vans, sharing platters, food bars, champagne & oyster bars, Spanish paella, vintage cream tea, a doughnut deli, Mexican burritos, barbecue wedding breakfast, ice cream vans, popcorn stands, retro chocolate fountains or vintage ice cream tricycles and much much more………………
A huge tip if your having outdoor wedding catering for your wedding breakfast is to ensure that there is a catering tent or nearby building sufficient for tipi or outdoor catering of your wedding breakfast and the specific food required on the day.
The wedding caterer or your wedding planner or wedding organiser will be able to talk through all of this with you.
Please find some top tips below about wedding catering that we have sourced from Niche Magazine from Dimblebee Catering
Most professional venues handpick and audit caterers before approving them and are probably one of the best indicators of a caterer’s standing and quality. The grander the venue, the more stringent the approval process.
Food Safety Rating
Often overlooked, any commercial caterer must be registered, inspected and rated. Make sure their kitchen address is published and search online for their food safety rating.
Meet up with your potential caterers at their kitchen rather than set up tasting events wherever possible. This will provide a valuable insight into how and where your food is prepared, what size they are, what resources they have in place and how the business is managed.
Quality has a price, if prices or package deals are cheap there will be a reason.
Once you pick your caterer, ask to meet up at their kitchens and sample a few dishes to get a real taste for the catering and to help define your menu choices- the proof is in the pudding so to speak! Simon Cox - Dimblee Catering
