If you are organising a dinner party, then working with a catering company is your best option to guarantee outstanding food. You can design a menu which is impressive, tasty and memorable. If you are going to be serving a three course meal, then you need to think carefully about each course and how you want the flavours and dishes to complement each other. The first thing to think about is the starter, whether you want a hot or cold dish to start with, and what you will serve.
Amazing cold starter options
When you work with a top catering company you can choose from a wide selection of cold starter options. If you want something that vegetarians and meat eaters alike will enjoy then vegetable mille feuille with mousseline sauce is a good option. French dishes are always a popular option since French cuisine is tasty but not too much for fussy eaters.
If you want to start with a fish dish, then poached salmon a la parisienne with saffron sauce is a brilliant idea. Salmon always brings class to a menu and with this dish, the presentation is as impressive as the taste. Another fish option is homemade salmon gravlax served with a citrusy mango salad. Salmon is one of the most popular cold starters for a dinner party.
Duck terrine is always delicious and not something you get every day. Served with green pepper and oignon jam it is the perfect way to start a meal as it is unique in its taste but also not too heavy. For a real showstopper, you could consider an ocean terrine with vegetable provencal which looks as impressive as it tastes.
If you are not sure how adventurous your guests will be, you can play it slightly safer with a charcuterie board, which lets your guests choose from a selection of delicious cured meats. However, if you want to go all out, then what about lobster en belle vue? The presentation of this dish is a truly a work of art.
When you work with a catering company to design your menu you can rely on service which is as outstanding as the food. You can take all the stress out of your event by having the food delivered to your door in advance so that you can get on with setting the table and all your other tasks.
You can also hire in service staff if you want to go the whole distance with your dinner party. You can relax and enjoy the company of your guests while everyone enjoys the delicious food.
