We all know that planning events and hiring catering companies can be an immense task that takes countless hours of planning and reorganising. The best way to a person's heart is through food, so if you want to host an unforgettable event for your customers or friends, you’ll want to hire a catering company to go that extra mile and really impress.
When it comes to choosing a catering company, there is a lot to consider and a lot that is often missed or forgotten. As a well-established and successful paella catering company in the Sydney area, Paella Amor has seen it all.
So here are our top three things to keep in mind when selecting a reliable catering company.
What Kind of Food Suits Your Event?
The first thing you will want to keep in mind is the choice of food for your event. There are so many factors that can affect the type of food that you will provide. The time of day is an important factor as this will determine whether you want to provide something like a breakfast selection, a quick midday snack or a more hearty dinner buffet. Consider how hungry your guests would be as an empty stomach doesn’t make anyone happy, similarly; overspending on food means wastage both in terms of money and food.
Consider what type of attendee is coming to your event. If your event is meant to be fun and exciting, some bland food can really pull down the mood. You should also consider that some guests will also have special dietary requirements such as vegetarian options and allergy requirements such as gluten intolerance. You should find out about any special requirements as soon as possible and discuss these with your catering company.
If you are looking for a unique, tasty and filling dish at your event you should consider Paella amor. With paella catering, you’ve got so many options to fit everybody's needs including vegan, gluten free and vegetarian options.
Our paella catering is gluten free, dairy free, egg free and nut free and our vegetarian paella is also vegan. This means that it's really easy to cater for dietary requirements without having to change the dishes or leaving anyone out.
The flavours we create keep everybody happy and promote a fun and engaging atmosphere for your event. The uniqueness of paella catering at your event is sure to satisfy and get everyone talking long after the event itself.
How Much Should I Spend?
Another important thing to keep in mind is of course, the budget. If you or your business are preparing an event, you will probably have a budget that you need to stick to. The trouble is knowing how much of that budget should go towards everything.
If you want to really roll out the red carpet and impress, then you may be considering a more expensive and extravagant spread. Delicious food will certainly keep your guests happy and make your event memorable but make sure it does not overshadow the purpose of your event.
You don’t want to overspend on too much food if your guests are not going to eat it all. Sometimes a smaller amount of high quality food is best. Then again, you don’t want to let anyone down by running out of food before they are satisfied.
Keep in mind that you do not always need to pay a premium for tasty and high quality food. The paella catering we provide at Paella amor is delicious and filling for your guests whilst remaining affordable for you or your business.
We use Australian seafood, free range chicken and import Spanish rice and saffron to ensure we are only using the best in our paella catering options. Our portion sizes are 220g – 250g per person and we often have guests coming back to 2nds and sometimes even 3rds.
How Much Planning Do You Want To Take On?
If you have been put in charge of planning an event, the last thing you want is to manage every aspect of the event on your own. Corporate catering can require as much organisational and planning as the rest of the event planning put together. It is important to choose a company that will lift the weight off your shoulders rather than adding unnecessary stress to your event.
Experienced corporate caterers will be able to perfectly plan out the food for your event with a small amount of guidance. Do not be scared to pass on this responsibility as they will know how to make everything run smoothly and you can trust them to meet your needs expertly.
At Paella amor, we pride ourselves on being there for our customers and providing paella catering with an authentic twist. We will use our years of experience and perfected culinary skill to save you the effort of planning every detail whilst still delivering quality service and food for your guests. We will advise and perform to the best of our ability because we are passionate about the food we provide.
