Caiger & Co., one of the most renowned catering companies in London, held a cooking demonstration last 04 April 2014 wherein sumptuous seasonal recipes were showcased. The event was conducted in partnership with Natoora, a leading supplier of restaurant-quality produce and meats. Alix Caiger, head chef and proprietor of Caiger & Co, created signature dishes using the fresh ingredients provided by Natoora. The two-hour demonstration, which occurred at the latter’s Chiswick store, aimed to teach participants unexpected ways of using seasonal produce in their cooking. Amongst the dishes prepared were asparagus bruschetta with morels and mushrooms, tortellini with borage, a wild pesto, and scones with Gariguette strawberries. Fresh peas, broad beans, baby artichokes, fresh garlic and Como peppers were also used in the recipes.

The article described the previous year’s event, where more than 30,000 meals were served to nearly 4,500 guests─ a feat almost certainly meant to be reached or exceeded this year. Such generosity came at a time when more Londoners were relying on food banks just to feed themselves and their families; it had been reported that the average number of people fed by individual food banks had increased from 68 in 2009 to 850 four years later. Everyone deserves a happy and memorable Christmas, especially in the way of warm, sumptuous, and nutritious meals. If you’re aiming to give exactly that for your less fortunate neighbours this holiday season, you can approach established catering companies in London like Caiger and Co. Catering to lend you a hand.

From the psychological point of view (Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs), food, as a basic security need must be satisfied first before a human can comfortably transition into more achievement-related endeavours. Simply put, your employees can focus more on fulfilling their tasks if they’re entirely free of basic concerns, such as food. Moreover, free meals make employees feel you care about their well-being, and as the reciprocity principle suggests, they’ll feel more compelled, if not obliged, to return the favour. Another reason to have your caterers in London drop food in your office more often is that free meals would allow them to eat more leisurely, instead of spending a great deal of time queuing for fast food. Take it from Google UK: if you encourage your employees to spend more time together during these free meals, they may come upon ingenious business ideas you can use for projects.

Menus need to be carefully chosen, and be appropriate for the season and the function. Finger food may be appropriate for some events and an absolute no-no for others. The time of day will largely decide if it will be lunch or dinner, but refining the choices into how formal, or how casual, requires expert advice and a vast amount of experience. The list goes on: will there be cocktails? Mocktails? Pop-up bars? The choice is yours. Whether it is for a major conference, family wedding, or intimate lunch, all these factors need to be taken into account, and of course it must be done with panache and style. Quality, taste, and style must be foremost. You need an experienced caterer in London, someone like Caiger and Co, who have all the qualities needed to fulfil the most demanding of host requests.

The above-mentioned tips are only two of the many considerations you have to make to ensure the success of your event. What’s more, it takes many years of experience in catering food for different types of event before you can master the craft. You will definitely need the service of one of the leading catering companies in London, like Caiger And Co. Catering, to avoid blunders that could damage to your reputation and finances. Hiring a catering service provider will also allow you to concentrate on more important event-related tasks. In case you have an event planner organising the event, you can focus your effort instead in making sure the preparations are well within budget, and in creating an events program that will be earning you praises from your guests. Just make sure to help the catering company pick the right cuisines by providing them with as much information as possible about the event and your guests.

Nierenberg also says that this study contradicts an earlier study funded by the U.K. Food Standards Agency, which said that the nutritional benefits of organic produce aren’t distinct from conventionally grown foods. With the coming of autumn in the U.K., people would definitely want to sink their teeth into organically-grown fruits and vegetables that only grow this season, like apples, potatoes, and pumpkins. Meanwhile, Caiger and Co. Catering and other renowned catering companies in London ensure that those attending lunch parties, dinners, weddings, and other formal events are also treated with a bespoke menu of organic and seasonal foods. One thing that diners can definitely expect this season is the variety of recipes that involve mushrooms, either as the main ingredient or as a side dish. Trompette mushrooms, for example, have a unique autumnal taste and texture, which make them a good ingredient for pastas or risotto dishes.

Regardless of the theme and style of your reception, it is important to find a catering service who can give you exactly what you require. Look to London caterers who specialise in bespoke catering and have an extensive menu. They should be able to create a menu specifically for your special day. If you already have a solid vision of what your wedding reception should be like, make sure that your caterer is informed down to the tiny details. If you don’t have a plan yet, you need not stress yourself out by shouldering the task of reception planning all by yourself. Rather, you should enlist the help of the catering service who should be able to provide some creative ideas.
