Last week I hosted a fundraising event and food was a part of it. So I spent many days before the event in searching for the appropriate catering services in Delhi. I wanted to make a wise selection as I knew how important it was to make sure that people remember my fundraising event in a pleasant manner. So I started my preparations much ahead of time.
I carefully selected the venue as the choices in terms of catering might get restricted with a wrong selection of venue. This is because last time when I had planned a charity event, the venue that I had booked forced me to make use of their in-house catering services. So this time I finalized a venue that did not have restrictions of any sort. Thus with the early finalization of venue I was left with lots of time to explore my options in case of catering service providers. As I had planned to explore maximum number of choices I kept a notebook with me to pen down the details then and there.
Before starting I created a list of all the vital pieces of information that I need to share with the professionals that handle catering services Delhi. You can include the following important items to your list.
- Event’s date and time
- The venue where the event has to be hosted
- Weather there is the provision of indoor or outdoor catering at the venue
- Whether there exists a kitchen on the site or not
- What is the roundabout number of guests that you are expecting to attend your event
- Dietary concerns such as (Kosher, Gluten-free, Vegan, Vegetarian, etc)
- Clearly mention your alcohol requirements
- The kind of style in which you want the food to be served such as family style, buffet style, food stations, traditional sit down meal, etc.
When you are responsible for the arrangements of a large event or function, one of the areas you need to consider is catering services. The decision you make will also reflect directly on you and hence this is also one important reason for your careful consideration in making the right selection. If you have a large percentage of guests from out of town there is no better choice than to arrange a Hyderabadi biryani main course.
I would advise you to take some time to make out a list of the reputed and famous Biryani caterers Hyderabad. Spending a little time visiting their kitchen and tasting their food will pay off when the event is over and people appreciate the catering arrangement. Careful consideration of the accompaniments that will be served with the Hyderabadi biryani will also make a great difference to the final outcome. My recommendation is that you should also give some attention to details such as the dress code of the waiters and discuss how the food will be presented, the quality of cutlery and crockery and the other things that go along with it. This little extra effort will reap you great rewards later on.
A few other features that you also need to look into when selecting the biryani caterers is the cost aspect. You will of course have a budget and need to organise the best you can within that budget without having to compromise on desert or accompaniments. I would personally advise you to consult with the Biryani caterers as to what are the best option that you can fit into the budget, this may also help the add a bit of freebees from their side. You will be surprised that a lot of reputed caterers will give you better rates than the newer ones.
Hosting a party at your home can be quite stressful. There are many different areas of concern and one among them is the food. My best advice would be to outsource the catering to those who specialise in the preparation of culinary delights. Rather than burdening yourself with the food. There are many other arrangements that can keep your hands tied down and your mind occupied. It is the little things that are the most troublesome, so by handing over the larger responsibilities you can focus better on the areas that cannot do without your personal attention.
There are many Veg caterers Hyderabad and my advice would be to hire someone who you have dealt with earlier. Even caterers who have been responsible for the food at some function or party that you have attended would be a good choice. At least you have tasted their food and experienced their service first hand. The quality of service reflects not just on the taste of the food but in the way they serve, the availability of staff for help, empty serving dishes being refilled immediately without making the guests wait and many other small details. All these things add up to reflect on the service of the caterer. These are the features that are important to reflect on when you select a caterer.
I would suggest that when you choose catering services you need to keep in mind a few criteria.
Veg caterers that use good quality raw ingredients for making the food are an ideal choice. They need to maintain a high level of hygiene while cooking, this is very important because you don’t want your guest to suffer any food related ailments. Cost of food per plate is an important consideration and you will find that the famous reputed caterers actually offer very competitive rates.
When it comes to food there is no compromise. I like to ensure that it is of the best quality. When you need to arrange catering services for a large function, it is very important to ensure that the caterers you hire will give you the kind of service that you previously decided upon. I recently took on the responsibility to host a party for a very dear friend’s wedding anniversary. The search for good Non-veg caterers Hyderabad was not a difficult one as there were dime a dozen. But I wanted this event to be something special and the food exquisite.
A bit of research and few recommendations led me to the kitchens of many caterers. Some of them were really impressive and I learned a good deal about catering and food combinations. I also learnt that when you have a budget, as we always tend to, you do not need to compromise on quality. If you are on a small per plate budget you should first select the Non veg caterers and then work out with them what they can give you in that budget to make the meal good. It also helps to let them know if there are a few important people who will be eating their food. To get a better deal you could remind them that their reputation precedes them. These factors will really help you to get a good deal within your budget.
With some advice from others I took the effort to discuss with the caterers about the display and how they will serve the food. I inspected the cutlery and crockery that they would use. I insisted on better quality serviettes and this made a lot of difference to the final presentation. A little extra effort does pay off and I would advise you to not compromise on this aspect.
