If you want to have a meal that is meaningful and a way to celebrate with people that you love planning a catered meal is a great way to do that. You can always go out to a restaurant and pick something from the menu but that becomes boring and mundane. If you want to spice up the experience, creating a plan to serve a five course meal is a great way to go. You want to make sure that you hire a company that offers coursed meals that you can have a hand in planning and making the day the best. A meal is a way to get together and to spend some time eating great food and interacting with those around you. A meal is what you make of it and that can be a quick bite to eat or an enjoyable process that makes the meal the main event. Married To Food Catering with Chef Marcel & Jeannie outlines what you need to know about planning a five course meal.
You want to start with the amount of people that might be attending the event. After you decide that you want to have a five course meal party you need to decide who you want to invite. The amount of people that will attend will determine somewhat the way the event will go. This is also an important piece of information that the catering company will need to know. The smaller the group is, the more intimate the event will be. Be sure that you know that the people that will attend will appreciate this type of meal so that you get what you want out of it.
What Goes Into a Five Course Meal?
When you plan a five course meal you should know what goes into the meal. There are a specific menu items that will come out with each course and you need to know what they are so that you can decide what you want to have served. One way of thinking is that the first course is a soup course, the second course will be a salad and the third course is a fish course or a chicken. The fourth course should include beef or lamb with the final and fifth course being a dessert. Another way of thinking is that the 5 course meal consists of an hors d’oeuvre, appetizer, salad, main course and dessert. The great thing is that you can go through each of the courses and make some decisions about what will be served to meet what you love.
Dinner Party Themes
You also want to think about a theme that you might want to have throughout the meal. It can be food type or it can be an overall theme that your guests should be aware of. The catering company as well as your guests should know what the theme is so that they can be prepared.
