More than the ceremony and the program, the food is a big part of setting the mood and keeping everyone full at your wedding reception. Thus, you have to do one important thing before deciding on your wedding caterer—attend a food tasting.
What is “food tasting” all about? Food tasting introduces the food packages and event set-up a caterer can provide. More than that, it is an opportunity to personally get to know a caterer and discuss your concerns and inquiries about your catering needs.
Caterers organize food tasting through a grand food tasting event or a special food tasting. A grand food tasting event is attended by several groups of guests where caterers prepare selected menu including their best-sellers. Actual wedding set-up is also experienced during this event. In a special food tasting, you can arrange your own schedule and request for your own choice of dishes. Usually, food tasting events are for free, but it would be safe to inquire about it before going.
There are caterers who organize a food tasting event only after a client has booked, but there are several reasons why we advise you to attend one beforehand.
