DOES YOUR EVENT NEED LONDON’S BEST CATERING SERVICES?
Planning an event in London can be quite a task, and one of the most important parts of your party is the catering. Here at Sugar & Rind, we work closely with London’s culinary scene to offer lots of exciting and creative options to elevate your event. In recent years, we’ve noticed a shift in the way our clients approach event dining, moving away from the formality of traditional seated dinners. Instead, Londoners are looking for a more relaxed and interactive dining experience. Whether you’re leaning towards informal dining, looking for the elegance of a formal dinner, or considering the charm of food trucks, we’ve got it all. We’ll talk you through the top catering trends and services in London to help you create an event to remember.
The modern party scene is all about breaking away from the rigid formality of traditional events. Informal dining is taking centre stage, and Sugar & Rind have a range of delightful options. Bespoke platters for delivery are a really convenient and cost effective way to serve an array of finger foods. Grazing tables, adorned with cheeses, charcuterie, and various snacks, beautifully presented, have become the centre piece of lots of our parties. We especially love canapés and bowl food, filled with bite-sized delicacies, which are perfect for mingling and socializing. We’ve even created beautiful taco food stations, which have allowed guests to build-their-own tacos, adding a fun and interactive element to a party. Sugar & Rind can help you pair your drinks with your food choices, however informal, and our mixologists work closely with our caterers to deliver everything from spicy Margaritas to pink Palomas.
While informal dining is on the rise, formal dining hasn’t gone out of style. In fact, it’s evolved with the times. Feasting menus are making a big impact, featuring dishes designed for sharing among guests. Often cooked at guests’ homes, using traditional methods, the cooking becomes part of the party, and is beautifully laid out and served. Sharing plates have become a sensation, with multiple courses served in the centre of each table. To wrap up the meal, dessert stations are really popular, offering an array of sweet treats for guests to enjoy at their leisure, particularly good for when the party ramps up and your guests are ready to dance! Sugar & Rind also have fantastic Fine dining options, with our in-house award-winning chefs bringing dinner parties to your home and impressing your guests with innovative techniques, presentation, and flavours.
The food truck phenomenon has swept through London’s culinary landscape, making it an exciting catering option for your next event. From gourmet burgers to artisanal tacos, fresh Italian pizzas and even fresh fish and chips, our food trucks offer a wide range of cuisines, and they provide a unique experience for your guests. They are perfect for outdoor events or when you want to add a touch of casual elegance to your party. Sugar & Rind offer a variety of food truck options, and if you have something specific you’d like, we can hire a fully equipped air streamer and a chef that can create a bespoke menu for you.
