One of the important things about hosting an event is the food. If your event is themed around a specific culture, you would choose foods from that region. However, if there is no cultural theme going on, you are free to choose foods that will appeal to everyone. Italian catering services are a good choice when you need to feed people who may have many different food tastes or dietary issues. Here are just a few reasons to go this route for your next event.
Salads and Appetizers
Italian cuisine often starts with a salad or different appetizers. You may want a big tray or antipasto with different meats and cheeses on a bed of lettuce with some cut-up veggies or go with something for the vegetarian crowd like a nice Caprese salad with mozzarella and tomatoes with a bit of olive oil and pepper. Of course, a nice Caesar salad is a great way to start the meal as it can be a bit filling and help stretch the main course. If you need to include vegan options, roasted vegetables drizzled with olive oil or a nice focaccia bread will be nice.
Very few people don't like pasta or pizza. The best thing about these foods is their adaptability. You can have different kinds of pasta available and the guests can then choose which sauces they prefer. Have some sauces with meats, but be sure to offer meatless sauces as well. It would also be a good idea to have pasta made from veggies or with non-gluten flour for anyone on the Keto diet or someone who needs to limit their carbohydrate intake. Pizza options should include meatless options, a pie with lots of meat, one with both veggies and meats, and one made with a cauliflower crust. Another good option would be eggplant parmesan using vegan cheese if any of your guests are vegan.
Tiramisu, Italian cookies, and cannolis are great options for dessert. Everyone will find something they like to finish off their meal.
Italian catering services offer such a large variety of foods all your guests will find something they will enjoy and can eat without breaking any dietary restrictions. If the event will be for adults, adding a few different wines will round out the eating portion. Of course, coffee, sparkling waters, and virgin cocktails should also be available for those who choose not to drink alcoholic options.Share
