Canapés, buffet and starters


Canapés and buffet

Buffets are a great area of the menu that can be truly bespoke to your business. There is so much to choose from and some really exciting products new to our range this year. Buffets are perfect for catering to larger groups but also a really great way to cater to a variety of dietary requirements. We’ve separated our range into, canapes, finger buffet, fork buffet, meat-free, fish and sweet buffet but many of the products are really versatile and can be used for either buffet type and even starters.

First impressions count and the starters are usually the first course customers experience and is also one of the courses you can offer a real point of difference. The trend of alcohol infused foods we saw erupt in the desserts range last year is now filtering through into different courses, in particularly starters. Embrace the trend or keep it classic with soups, pates terrines or offer a truly indulgent starter with some of our premium seafood.
