Some trends are just set to make a bride’s life so much easier. And in my opinion, the increasing trend for bowl food is just one of them.
Why Bowl Food Is The Perfect Recipe
Just think about it – you’re entertaining say, 150 guests and you’re stressing over vegetarians, vegans, yeast intolerances, kids, costings … In fact getting the menu right for your formal sit down dinner is starting to give you nightmares.
Enough already. Get thinking about bowl food.
You can still have seated tables – but your guests can browse along a buffet of a selection of bowl food – or have it handed around to them by attentive waiting staff. Or food stalls can be set up …
What you serve is entirely up to you – to suit your tastes and budget.
You could have a bit of Asian fusion – noodles, sushi. Tagines. Salads. Or maybe go a bit more trad with mini fish and chips, mini burgers, mini roast beef and Yorkshire puddings.
Have a few soups to sip – a consommé maybe?
