Whether you are throwing a lavish party at home or simply planning a get together for friends, family and relatives, either way you know that it is the food that is going to be the star of the day. Everything else can be more or less excused, but if you go wrong with the food, there is just no redemption! Cooking yourself is a viable option if the turnout is in limited numbers, but if the guest list is extensive, it is better to leave the job to the professionals. Thankfully Delhi-NCR has no dearth of options of good Home catering services offering a wide array of delectable dishes right at your doorstep. And, we have picked some of the best in town for you. But before you go call the caterers for your next get together here are some points to keep in mind:
- Most caterers have a wide range of cuisines and dishes they offer. But they would all have their best-sellers. So it is important to know their area of expertise and get them on board accordingly. A team specialising in Biryani would not be able to do justice to fresh Tacos, a caterer who does only Indian food may not be your best bet for an evening when you want to serve only Oriental dishes. Do your finding out and make the right choice.
- Notify your preferences in advance. If someone is allergic to seafood, or dairy or has any specific dietary restrictions, let your caterer know in advance so that a separate dish could be made for them. If there are many children in the party and don't enjoy Indian fare as much, caterers often come up with ideas that would interest them like live pasta corners.
- There are several kinds of catering options to chose from in the market. If space is a constraint then check with your caterer if they take bulk orders. They make the dishes in advance and assembled right before the party starts. Some will cook at the venue and install live stalls to serve the dishes. Check if they come with serving dishes, crockery and cutlery and tables for laying out the food. These are mostly an additional expense.
