Menu tasting

In case you are organizing a large and special event, menu tasting is the best way to make sure the food will meet your expectations!

It is an overview of what your guests will have, so trust your first impression because most of the guests will probably have the same!

It will cost you more or less the same price but there are a few bonuses: you will save a lot of time and effort, you won’t worry that something will go wrong as the caterers are used to this kind of event and their set up is very often adapted to their  dishes. It will look like everything is where it should be.

Communicate with your caterer, give him all the keys he needs to succeed.
