The Difference a good caterer makes to your event.


 

There are numerous corporate functions during which hiring a caterer would be beneficial for everyone. Generally speaking, fed employees are happy employees and that’s cause to consider hiring out for a business meeting, retirement party or maybe even a special office anniversary. Hiring a company like Trenchers Catering takes care of all of the work involved with making your employees and coworkers feel thought of – Undeniably, food makes an impression and brings people together.

As much as we hate to admit it, our lives tend to revolve around breaks and meal times both in and out of the office. Think back to your latest function, do you remember the food?

Of course you do!

Everyone always remembers the food! Food brings people together and it has the innate ability to make a meeting an occasion. It can add to a function or just as quickly take away from it so hiring a professional to take care of the preparation and logistics helps you do your own job better.  Imagine walking into your next deal meeting or presentation with the aroma of fresh brewed coffee dancing around the room and a spread of pastries and fruit to lighten the mood. Everyone appreciates a pick-me-up and with Trenchers Catering you can trust that when the atmosphere is dry, the food won’t be.

When you’re preparing for corporate events the utmost importance is how you’re treating your guests and employees. You want to portray the company well so you clean up, dress well, decorate accordingly, prepare slides and handouts but one of the best things you can do is make a good impression with the sustenance you’re offering. A good selection of refreshments or a well put together meal shows your employees, partners and guests that you care about both their well-being and that they enjoy their time spent with you.

From small office meetings to large corporate events, the right food can improve overall morale and help keep attendees focused and engaged. Catered events help build relationships and that’s what business is all about. Sitting down with a hot cup of coffee or to share a meal brings us all back to just being people, working together to build something wonderful – your company.

Great blog by Jen reviews, all about french bread.

There is a great little article about french bread written by Jen Miller from the blog site Jen Reviews, it talks about how to make the perfect french bread, and its  available to read in full  here: Jen Reviews


below is a brief snip it of it.....

Bread, in one form or another, is something that can be found in every cultures kitchen. We use it as a way to break our overnight fast, to sandwich delicious ingredients in-between for the mid-day meal, or to sop up flavor infused liquids from a sauce or soup at dinner. It’s really the most universal of finger foods. However, we usually leave it to the experts to prepare either in an artisan bakery or in a commercial kitchen environment. Of course, that was before this French bread recipe! 


We hope you liked the post as much as we do at Trenchers.

Trenchers caters for around 70,000 people a year and has found still our most popular fillings are BLT,Ham and Cheese.

At Trenchers Catering we make sandwiches for around 70,000 people a year, and in our experience, the simpler the sandwich fillings are the better our customers enjoy them.

Recent article published in the `independent has found the nations favourite sandwich filling is ‘The ‘BLT’, which is most defiantly one of my favourites, however, we have found just plain ham salad or cheese salad, works best when catering for large amounts of people, and as long as we have these fillings on our platters the customers are happy.

Sandwiches have been enjoyed since the 18th century, when the Earl of sandwich first came up with the idea of putting bread and a filling together.

According to new research, the great people of the UK are supposable moving away from the standard classic fillings and are heading towards a more modern avocado sandwich or Brie and grape, which is great, but there will always be a place for the classics.

Over the last 50 years, our tastes have not changed to much, here is what we have been eating….

1970s 

Ham salad

Ham and cheese

Ploughman’s

Cheese and onion

Egg mayonnaise

1980s 

Chicken salad

2010s

All these fillings are available on Trenchers menus at. all times and generally will get rotated daily to add to variety.

I would also like to add the Coronation chicken and chicken tikka, to the nations favourite as these are always been requested by my customers

How the humble sandwich has stood the test of time

Warburtons have asked 2000 people to take part in a study which found according to the research, the most popular sandwich filling of the 1970s was ham salad, with chicken salad reigning supreme in the 1980s.

The BLT followed as the most desirable sandwich of choice in the 1990s, with participants opting for a fishier filling in the 2000s with smoked salmon and cream cheese.

However, in recent years it seems that more Britons have been opting for plant-based alternatives, as the hummus and falafel sandwich- however this is down to what I believe is the Vegan effect.

51% of chefs in America are adding Vegan options to their menus.

Do most people describe a sandwich as their favourite meal, these studies suggest so.

Darren Littler, innovation director at Warburtons, explains that the study demonstrates the nation’s desire to be more experimental in the kitchen.

“Whilst the humble sandwich has remained a classic UK favourite over the decades, it’s interesting to see the fillings that fall in and out of favour in line with trends and preferences,” he says.

 “Now, with a vastly increased number of choices compared to years gone by, more adventurous fillings are now clearly the order of the day for many Brits, with corned beef no longer cutting the mustard.”
