When you think of a great party, there are a few elements that are likely to come to mind – great music, plenty to drink, and of course, mouth-watering food.
Bowl food has become an increasingly popular guest at parties over the last few years – particularly in relation to private party catering in London – but what is it, and why should you try it? Read on to learn all you need to know.
What is bowl food?
Bowl food is a type of finger food that is served in bowls or plates. It can be anything from appetisers to desserts, and everything in between, and typically involves smaller versions of perennial favourite dishes, with a fork alongside to allow guests to help themselves to whatever they fancy.
Why should you try bowl food at your upcoming event?
There are many reasons why you might want to consider serving bowl food at your next event, and we have some of the main advantages:
- It offers a more relaxed dining experience
When you’re hosting an event, one of the most important things you can do for your guests is help them feel relaxed and comfortable. This means making sure they have enough time to eat their meal, without having to worry about being rushed through it.
With bowl food, this is much easier to achieve than with traditional plated meals, as guests don’t have to wait until everyone else has finished eating before they start enjoying their own portion.
- Guests can choose a range of dishes
With bowl food, you can offer guests a range of different options, rather than just one large dish, and this allows your guests the chance to try something new and experience tasty new flavours and textures. They won’t have to settle for just one thing, and they will get to enjoy a variety of foods without feeling like they’ve missed out.
- It’s easy to serve and clean up after
Serving bowl food doesn’t require as much work as traditional plated meals. All you really need to do is put the food into bowls, and allow guests to enjoy!
Bowl food is the perfect option for a relaxed party which focuses on guests enjoying their evening.
