We have catering by a local flatbread place, but I'm looking for suggestions of things that are snack worthy, or other options rather than flatbread. Thank you!!!
Hi Rebecca, is your idea to have foods set out on tables for people to help themselves? small plates but no forks etc? Or are you going to have servers passing foods on trays?
It sounds like the former, and it sounds like your flatbreads will all be spreads and bread? It's important to know what their menu is so you can fill in the gaps. Also, do you want all room temp foods?
Meats or all Vegetarian? What time of year?
The most "easy to prepare " foods are big batches of dips and spreads(which i'm guessing are already being featured by the flatbread caterer.) Making 'pieces' of food is more labor intensive.
I catered for 30 years, so I can be more helpful after you give us more specifics!
Anything you can make as a bar and cut into bite-sized pieces (brownies, lemon bars, cookies, raspberry bars, five-layer bars, etc)
Marinated vegetables on a toothpick kebab, cut fruit on toothpick, thickish cucumber slices with a piped dollop of something (mousse made with canned salmon or tuna seasoned with lemon juice folded into whipped cream or set with cream and gelatin),
I don't know how necessarily 'quick' these are to make, depends on your rolling and cookie cutting skills but can easily be made without the fig spread if that saves you time. they remind me of a grown up/sophisticated cheese-it
If you have a few people working, this app can be assembled pretty quickly. Not sure if everyone would like smoked salmon, but it seems to be more popular these days. http://www.saveur.com/article...
Don't have any suggestion, but the thought of this makes me feel a little faint. 20 people makes me start to feel uncomfortable, but 150.......good luck!
