Whether you’re preparing to host a celebration for the retirement of an employee or preparing for your wedding reception, no event preparation is truly complete until you decide on the food that should be served. Trying to pick a source for your catering might seem like an impossible task. Recently, however, a hot new trend has taken the culinary world by storm and it may be just the thing to add a little bit of interest to your event. The trend is known as “Farm to Table”, a simple name for an equally simple process. Instead of relying on a restaurant or catering service that will likely serve you food that has been frozen for days, Farm to Table cuisine makes it possible to have a meal comprised entirely out of food that has been specifically raised for your party.
As time has passed it may have become much easier to store food for prolonged periods of time, but very little has been done to help preserve the taste and quality that only fresh food can boast. Regardless of the reason for the festivities, you want each one of your guests to leave the event with a smile on their face. According to research by students at Hampshire College in Massachusetts, the taste and nutrition of consumed foods can directly affect an individual’s mood. In fact, serving a poor meal could prevent your guests from enjoying the rest of your scheduled activities. With this knowledge in mind, the university has begun serving dishes comprised of locally grown ingredients that are specifically prepared and delivered to their campus in order to guarantee full stomachs and satisfied attendees.
If your friends or family already have a predilection for Farm to Table dining, perhaps they would enjoy the prospect of getting to see the origins of their meals first hand. By getting in contact with the local farm that grows and ships your food, it may be possible to arrange a visit to tour the facility and learn more about the entire procedure. As part of your event, guests can learn more about the Farm to Table methodology and develop a deeper appreciation for how fresh ingredients can make all the difference when it comes to someone’s diet. Make sure to gather as much information as possible about the Farm to Table caterer in order to answer the questions of the guests who are consuming the food. Ultimately, this new trend incorporates fresher ingredients from local sources that leave attendees feeling good about the meal they are consuming.
