Party Food & Snacks Guide


Party FoodGUIDE - Food & Snacks - DIY - Self Catering Party Food

If you are planning to prepare and serve the food yourself (DIY), then the best tip is to start planning early.  Take into account, the type of party and how long the guests will be there to understand the type and quantity of food required.  Test out dishes and recipes before hand so you are not experimenting on your guests!

Whether you're serving a six-course dinner or just entrees, plan dishes that can be prepared ahead of time and then just pulled from the refrigerator, heated and served.  Plan to spend as little time as possible in the kitchen.

Whatever you prepare be sure to have lots of it and keep platters refreshed so the food always looks abundant and appetising, even to guests who arrive halfway through the party.

A fun dish making a comeback is the FONDUE! The 70's trend proved to be ideal for self-serve food that caters to just about everyone. If you don't have a fondue (and there isn't many that haven't got one in the cupboard) pick one up as it will entertain your guests and prove to be a valuable and entertaining talking point bringing back a flood of memories.

If all this seems like too much work then consider hiring a caterer. Australian catering companies offer a wide range of food styles for any occasion.
