When it comes to wedding catering, dessert menus have become a much-anticipated and memorable part of the big day. And, even though the wedding cake is most often the star of the dessert buffet, there are a number of dessert options that are sure to satisfy and delight your guests.

It’s become common practice for organisations to put together lunch for their employees at least once a week, and often on a Friday.

The celebration has been decided, the date set, and the venue and food carefully planned. What more do you need for the perfect office party? A well-stocked, well-run bar, of course! And, what better party drink than a cocktail to take your corporate function to the next level?
Catering a corporate event (where the food is plentiful, delicious, and memorable) takes experience and skill. You need to organise a large amount of great quality food and make sure all the guests are served without distracting them from the purpose of the event. When done right, food bars are a great way to achieve this.
Too often, food platters for office events can be repetitive or loaded with unhealthy options. Or just plain boring. But they don’t have to be! If you’re organising platters for your next office meeting or corporate party, think beyond samoosas and finger sandwiches, and serve up fresh, colourful platters sure to delight your guests and have them coming back for more.
