At Signature Banqueting we often use live chefs at our events as it enhances the whole dining experience. Guests love to see their food being prepared in front of them, especially as it guarantees that the food is fresh. We don’t just do this for the main meals; guests can also watch how we create our stunning canapés.
It’s a fact that what you put in your dishes will have an impact on the end result – wilting vegetables for example are never going to look appealing. We go one step further, as well as the main ingredients, we ensure the base ingredients are of an equal standard, like only using virgin oils, the highest quality, so our dishes look appealing and are delicious.
Once dishes are completed that’s not the end. We also think about how we can add that extra something special that will make those who are eating our food, reach for their phone to Instagram what they’re about to tuck into! We employ ‘presentation chefs’ whose responsibility it is to ensure every dish has its finishing touches such as carving fruits into pretty flowers to add decorative features.
One of the golden rules of good display is ensuring dishes the colours of the dish are curated. No one wants to see a spread of curries in brown sauces, it would all look the same. We ensure your menu is varied in terms of its ingredients and this may involve balancing it out with green vegetables and salads so the overall presentation is one guests want to tuck into.
