Temple catering can be one of the hardest things to plan. When you have to work with everyone’s dietary needs while also keeping it kosher and affordable, it can really be overwhelming. However, we’re here to help you through every step of your temple catering needs. From picking the right caterer to making sure everything gets to your temple on time, our tips and tricks are designed to help make the whole process much simpler.
- Make sure you get everyone’s dietary needs out of the way first.
It’s a good idea to make a list of those that have special requirements when it comes to their diet. Aside from kosher dishes, you might have to think about having a few gluten-free options or lactose-free options for those that require it. After all, nobody wants to leave anyone out on the enjoying the great food. If you’re having a hard time finding a caterer that will suit your guests’ needs, we recommend Eden Catering. Not only does Eden Catering offer delicious kosher choices, but they can whip up any dairy-free, vegetarian, or gluten-free options you might need.
- Make sure to take care of all your food.
Remember that no cooked dishes, soft cheeses, and cut-up fruit should sit out for more than two hours, remember to keep your cold dishes on top of some ice to keep them cool; tips like that are things that you’ll have to remember on the day of your catered event. Nobody wants to order a ton of food only to have it inedible when it’s time to eat, so make sure you know what you’re ordering and have a plan for how long things will sit out for.
- Remember to round up.
If you’re even the tiniest bit unsure as to how many guests you’ll be serving, round up. If the food ends up running short, you’ll be more than embarrassed, so make sure you have enough for everyone. Leftovers can go home to your guests as a polite gesture if it turns out that you ordered a little more than what was needed.
- Start planning early.
Getting everything done ahead of time is always a good idea. That way, you’ll be prepared for any small problems that crop up along the way and you can book everything in advance. Your caterers will probably appreciate the heads-up as to when your event will be and what they have to get done as well!
