Every caterer knows that their job is to give their client the event of their dreams, sometimes with limited resources. From creative menus to show-stopping centerpieces, caterers are responsible for a lot – and that’s why it’s important to have all of the tools that you need on hand to make your job just a little easier.
Whether you’re planning a big event, or a small get-together, you’ll need a few products that will help keep your kitchen sanitary and completely clean.
Be sure to use hairnets when you’re preparing food to help keep small hairs out of prepared dishes. If your guests will be watching you or your staff prepare dishes, you may want to invest in sophisticated-looking chef’s hats, which give you the convenience of a disposable product, while looking sharp and professional.
Gloves are a must-have in any professional kitchen, and CiboWares has a variety of styles and sizes to fit any need. Use latex gloves to avoid cross-contamination when preparing different foods, and buffet servers can use premium poly gloves to keep their hands clean while serving guests.
In the kitchen, make sure that you have the proper food storing products to keep everything neat and organized. Food storage bags can help transport food from your commercial kitchen to the event venue, and microwaveable rectangle boxes will help keep different ingredients separate for on-site cooking and prep work. If you’ve prepped any food the day before a big event, keep it fresh and protected from contaminants with bun pan liners, which wrap easily around bun pans to completely cover any product.
For buffets, make a point to bring extra chafing fuel – you won’t want to run out of the heat source that keeps all of your delicious food hot and ready for guests to enjoy.
When you’re setting up the event’s décor and table settings, make sure that you have every element covered. Poly tablecloths will help tie the look of the room together and keep tables neat and clean.
To serve your appetizers and main course, use disposable tableware that offers an elegant look, and easy cleanup. Bamboo plates, serving boats and tasting cones, are a unique option for special events. Wooden serving boats will give you a classy and environmentally-friendly way to serve even the fanciest dishes.
Don’t forget about the cutlery! Wooden disposable utensils are an elegant way to enjoy all types of foods, from hot soups to cold appetizers. Much more stylish than traditional plastic utensils, your clients will love the special touch and elegant look that wooden utensils provide.
Finally, keep everything clean with napkins and napkin bands. From colorful beverage napkins to heavy-duty disposable dinner napkins, napkins are fundamental at every dinner. Add a pop of color to each table with our colorful, paper napkin bands, available in 10 shades, they’re the finishing touch that will make your next event absolutely perfect.
