The Benefits of Hiring a Caterer

Whether you’re planning a corporate event, meeting, birthday party, wedding or even a fund raising event, the quality of the catering you supply can make a tremendous difference to the success of your event. Hiring a skilled team of caterers can be very impressive and help your event look and feel the part. There are tons of benefits to hiring a professional caterer. They are as follows;

  • Quality – You can always guarantee that the quality of the food supplied will be of the highest standard. The quality of food at an event can make or break the event. If the food is not of a high quality, then your guests are not going to enjoy the event.
  • Time Saving – You will already have the stress of planning your event, sending invitations and finding the perfect venue. By hiring a professional catering company, they can save you the time and stress of worrying about food and plating. All you have to do is agree the menu and type of food you want and they will take care of the rest.
  • Professional Service – Most Catering Companies offer a waiting service or plating service as well as catering. This will definitely steal your guests’ hearts. And it’s just a bonus on top of having delicious food.

What Is a Gourmet Braai and Why You Deserve It?

As a South African, you probably love having a BBQ or, as we know it, a braai. We often enjoy these braais with a warm backdrop, an exciting soccer, rugby, or cricket match, cold beer and great company. But there are also things that we just do not enjoy when it comes to a braai. You know, the sunburns, the limited variety of side dishes, the long wait to eat, or especially those store bought salads. Unless the grocery store near you is one special place, their potato salad or carrot salad is nothing to brag about.

A Gourmet Braai
The name already makes it sound like a unique and, obviously delicious experience, which leaves out that very average onion bread. A gourmet BBQ or braai might seem a little “too fancy” and “lacking in tradition”, but you might just change your mind after you have one. Common delicacies that feature at these sensory festivals go beyond that store bought braai pack and spice. It takes the classics that we know and love: ribs, burgers, prawns, and kababs and gives them a well-deserved rejuvenation.

What a Gourmet Braai Includes
A gourmet braai means that your wings have a delicious basting that is made fresh with a great recipe. The vegetables are perfectly cooked and seasoned on the flames to bring colour and vibrancy to everyone’s plate. The burgers are made with love and natural flavours that dance on your taste buds. These burgers are dressed in more than those individually wrapped slices of cheese and tomato sauce, instead fresh produce is accompanying it with a relish made from scratch. This of course, is still done on your favourite braai, with your favourite beer and your favourite friends while you root for your team.

Enjoy a Gourmet Braai
The idea of a gourmet braai sounds amazing doesn’t it? But you’re also thinking, “Who has time for this? It seems like a lot of work.” Well you could always get in contact with The Boy’s Catering to cater your next braai, or any other event you would love to enjoy without any of the work. You will fall in love with the great service and the amazing flavours that their food embodies.
