Moorebank, Australia (PressExposure) November 11, 2009 -- If you are plain any event for your office, the best thing to do is plan early and chooses a caterer with a few ideas in hand. Although many caterers have ready-to-go menus, most of them will work with you to ensure the food at the conference is a success. The type of food and the amount of help you will depend on the amount of people at the conference and whether the food is needed for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Corporate Catering Menu Ideas
A catering menu depends largely on the type of event you are holding. Different catering menus are appropriate for different times of the day and should be adapted to the formality of the event. Here are some ideas for catering menus.
Catering Breakfast Ideas
Breakfast can be a number of stuff in more verities. A variety of cereals in attractive dispensers with fresh, cold milk should be a staple. Trays of fresh, seasonal fruit are always well received. Scones, rolls, biscuits and toast should be served with an array of jellies and jams to top them. You can serve yogurt with a variety of toppings such as granola and dried fruits.
Your Breakfast will appear beautifully arranged in wicker baskets and platters. We can deliver on-site for your expediency and arrange to have all materials picked up at the end of your event. Make certain plenty of servers are present to refill coffee mugs on the floor. A banquet spread of fruits, juices, bagels, toast, muffins, butters and jams is a popular idea for these types of conferences. It is unlikely that businesspeople will want full main courses early in the morning.
