Catering Equipment – What do you Actually Need?
You need the right equipment to be able to create mesmerising dishes. As a caterer, investing in your equipment is investing in your career. But how do you know what you will actually need?
The main thing is to check with the venue what they already have. If they have everything you need to serve your food then you won’t need to worry about presentation. Check about everything from cutlery to centrepieces, as you don’t want to find you don’t have what you expect when you arrive.
The more equipment you have, the more versatile you will be as a caterer. If you are preparing food off-site, make sure you have the right equipment for transporting food. This includes a vehicle where you can store and stack food at the right temperature.
Also, invest in good quality equipment for food preparation. From mixers to cookers.
