As the UK is returning back to normality, many happy couples are waiting in line to be joined in marriage. Talking about normality, the traditional wedding reception usually consists of a three-course meal or a buffet. Many people want to take their reception in a different direction. Sizzling kebabs, chicken, beef, steak, vegetables all being cooked right in front of wedding guests – a beautiful & delicious wedding BBQ.
So, if you’re a catering company that is new to the BBQ world or you just want a few more tips after weddings were stopped due to COVID, we can help you make the right steps towards planning the perfect BBQ.
Step 1: The Food
First things first – what kind of food will your guests like? This is when we need to take into consideration dietary requirements such as allergies or if any of your guests are vegan or vegetarian so always make sure you’ve got a section for the veggie lovers!
What’s your centrepiece going to be? A hog roast is always a great choice – it looks extremely impressive and tastes delicious. Lamb on a spit would also look and taste amazing! Or are you even going to have a centrepiece? You can just stick to a wide range of delicious food such as kebabs, burgers, steak, sausages and whatever you fancy!
For the non-meat eaters, make sure to include some sort of fish dish like tuna steaks, king prawns, salmon or fish skewers. Halloumi makes a great option for vegetarians! Corn on the cob, vegetable skewers and grilled aubergine would suit any vegans attending, you could also make a delicious vegan pasta salad.
Make sure to have a diverse menu your client can pick from.
Step 2: Choosing the right equipment
