Should I Order Hot Food For My Party?
Could the event schedule change on the day?
We recently provided fresh platters, and little savoury pastries that were warmed in our pie warmer at their office to be served on the completion of a VIP welcome meeting. The meeting ran over by 3/4 hour. If we had delivered hot food, it would have been inedible. It was kept safe and warm in the pie warmer until needed.
How Long is Food Service?
A 3 hour finger food menu is not possible with a hot food delivery. Small pieces of food get cold quickly, even in a foil tray. All the food would need to be eaten on arrival, regardless of what else is happening at the time.
Quality of your Dining Experience
Hot food sweats until served, pastries are a good example of foods that do not travel long distances very well.
The Time Needed From Preparing to Serving Food
If your venue is not within 10 mins of our base, it may arrive at the correct temperature, but hot food sweats. Will it still be crisp and delicious?
Please also consider the lead time for food (especially large quantities) to be heated, packed, transported, unloaded, the food station set up, then served.
Could there be other unplanned issues, eg, traffic?
