When you’re looking for a Caribbean caterers service in London, you want a company that will create a unique menu and will create memorable experiences.
If you’re looking to hire a caterer for your next event, party, or wedding, there are plenty of options available. However, many people choose a standard catering company. We say, why go with the norm? Why go so boring? We say, try something a little more flamboyant to wow your guests and have them salivating at the very thought. If you’re in need of a catering service to handle your next event or wedding, or you just want your guests to have a think-outside-the-box experience, then this post is for you.
Here are four great reasons why hiring a Caribbean catering company will have your guests talking about your event for years to come.
Caribbean Event Caterers Are Fun
What makes a caterer from the Caribbean unique? How about the fact that these caterers are a perfect mix of exuberance with a tiny pinch of seriousness, enough to make your event run without a hitch. You’re not going to find a business owner with a stiff upper lip and serious demeanor running a Caribbean catering company. You’ll simply find someone from the Caribbean catering Caribbean food with a passion, and what you’ll find if you peel a layer back, is a colorful mix of personalities that are all equally dedicated to what they do.
Caribbean Food Is Delicious
When you say Caribbean food, most of us think ‘Jerk Chicken’, and while this is incredibly juicy and flavoursome, it’s merely the tip of the iceberg. If you’re in the know, you’ll understand that, in fact, the Caribbean region is a plethora of many of the world’s most popular cuisines, including Jamaican, Haitian, Trinidadian, Barbadian, Cuban, and Puerto Rican, among others. These regional styles, each with their own distinctive flavors, can be found all over the Caribbean, and thus fall into the category of Caribbean cuisine.
You can expect stew-like dishes such as Red Pea Soup from Jamaica, Haitian tchaka, or Callaloo from the Dominican Republic. You might also be tempted to try Chuletas de Puerco from Cuba, a pork dish marinated with orange juice, cumin, and oregano.
It’s something you could write a book about, and many exist, so if you’d like to see how a Caribbean catering company could fit into your event, why not start with reading up on some of the dishes available. Or you could contact us.
It’s Not Just ‘Caribbean Food Shack’. It Can Be Sophisticated
Many people think that food from the Caribbean is only a matter of eating fried fish and deep-fried plantains. It can be, but the cuisine there has a lot of depth, with flavors derived from the region’s history and influences. The Caribbean’s roots are in French and Spanish colonization, but in the decades after World War II, African, Indian, and Chinese influences began to make themselves felt, resulting in a distinctive regional identity. This diversity means that Caribbean food is often quite different from what you’ll find in France or Spain, but it’s worth checking out for a more varied and interesting eating experience. That said, the region has created many talented chefs, most of whom partially trained in Paris or London. They have pioneered a movement, and taken what would have traditionally been street food, and fused the flavours into something more sophisticated. Something that wouldn’t be out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant in France.
Caribbean Catering Will Create Memorable Weddings Or Corporate Events
The days of large banquets with menus the size of your arm are over. The new generation appreciates a less formal approach. This goes for weddings and corporate events alike. Imagine this. Your guests arrive and they are immediately hit with the aroma of fragrant spices sizzling on the bbq. Their mouths start to water. Authentic Caribbean food does that to you. Doesn’t this sound to you like the start of an unforgettable event? It certainly does to us.
