So, how do you define the new normal, when it comes to catering and specifically, outside catering in Leicester?
One phrase springs to mind – “It’s life, Jim, but not as we know it…”
Kinda sums up the current situation we’re facing with COVID-19, doesn’t it? And as all of us try to find a way to make things work, both in our professional and private lives, we’ve found that, when it comes to catering for special events, using grazing boxes for outside catering in Leicester is going down a storm.
Well, who wouldn’t like a box of deliciously fresh food to nibble on while they make the most of being able to spend time with friends and family, once more?
Outside catering for limited numbers
With regard to special events, a wedding ceremony, for example, is currently (at the time of writing) recommended to include no more than 30 people, in order to comply with COVID-19 guidelines. A welcome move away from weddings with no guests, you might say, but still not the standard big bash.
Bearing all this in mind, at Thomas The Caterer we have found the best way to conduct outdoor catering at the moment is by offering the delivery of food in grazing boxes or as street food.
That means a sumptuous array of food comes already prepared and beautifully presented for guests to enjoy. There’s no staff there restricting the numbers of guests allowed, no crockery or cutlery delivered, just awesome food without adding the risk of coronavirus.
As there are still social distancing guidelines in place, much of these weddings and other events need to happen in large outdoor areas. So that means we can bring the grazing boxes to the venue, set up your outside catering in Leicester and leave happy in the knowledge that the guests at your wedding will have a treat in store.
What’s in a grazing box?
Anything your heart desires. One rule applies – the contents of a grazing box must look and taste absolutely whizz poppingly splendiferous. So, when you decide to have grazing boxes for your outside catering in Leicester, what sort of delicious treats can you expect to find within?
Examples include a marvellous mixture of the following:
- Selection of cheeses
- Fresh fruit
- Fresh dips and crudites – e.g. chopped carrots, peppers and cucumber
- Home made sausage rolls and scotch eggs
- Cold cuts of meat
- Breads and crackers
- Salad leaves
- Olives and antipasti
- Chutneys and pickles
- Popcorn and sweet treats
