Planning for an event can be both enjoyable and tedious at the same time. While it can be fun to think about what guests might like to do, it can be incredibly tedious planning out events for guests. Depending on the nature of the event and how many guests will arrive, you might be looking at several months of planning. One of the most important things that you will need to plan for an event, aside from the main focus of the event, is how you will keep the guests and attendees fed. Some people might not realise how much a difference the right food can make at an event. For example, most people wouldn’t serve fast food at a traditional wedding. With that being said, it can be extremely difficult or even overwhelming to think about which type of catering food will suit your event. However, there is one type of food that can be suitable for nearly every occasion, finger food.
What Is Finger Food?
As the name might suggest, finger food is food that can be eaten with your fingers. There are nearly countless types of finger foods that you can choose from, meaning that you can find suitable catering for nearly every event. Ranging from foods such as chorizo and tomato tarts to miniature cheeseburgers, you will be able to find finger food for everyone. You might still be wondering what makes finger food most suitable for a catering event. Since finger food was designed to be eaten with your hands, it is often much smaller than your typical meal. This means that they might be perfect for an event where another meal is a main focus, or where food is not even a focus at all. The finger food can simply be there for people who become hungry during the event and want something small and simple to eat.
Another perk of investing in gourmet finger food catering is that finger food is relatively clean to eat. At events where attire is important, having clean finger food to eat is important. Even if you provide napkins at the event, guests won’t be too satisfied if they find themselves constantly wiping their hands. With a serving of finger food, you won’t have to worry about investing in a significant amount of cleaning supplies or cutlery for your guests, which means that you will have more money to spend on ensuring that the attendees enjoy the event.
What Finger Foods Are Available?
Finger foods are becoming increasingly common at events such as weddings, birthday parties, and BBQs. This means that there is a wide selection of finger foods available for you to choose from. There are some packages that can serve over 100 people and other packages that allow you to choose from seven different items from the menu. The menu itself has a selection for both hot and cold finger foods and even a selection of petit fours as well. There are also selections that are vegetarian friendly, as well as gluten-free options, meaning that everyone will find something that they can eat during the event. After all, happy guests are never a bad thing.
