Event catering is something which has evolved over recent years. Throwing together an assortment of sandwiches and crisps across a buffet table isn’t going to cut it in most cases. Enter grazing tables. These produce an enticing display of dishes or smaller bites, usually grouped together in similar themes across a beautifully presented table. Think of a ‘hog roast corner’ or an ‘American burger bar’ with a look to match. They can even provide multiple platters piled high with treats which look as good as they are to eat. Not only do these tables create a great talking point but they also allow guests to ‘graze’ when they want to, building a plate of food they want to eat rather than one placed in front of them.
