Why a Finger Buffet is a right Choice for your next catering Event

If you are considering a buffet for your next event, a finger buffet is an ideal consideration for a standard buffet, be it for private business or special event catering.  Finger buffets tend to be perfect even with a cultural overtone if needed, they are simple yet relished by just about all.

Many a number of people come away satisfied with an event with just simply the knowledge the kind of  buffet they had was simple. But how can simplicity be easily archived with a finger buffet?

Firstly, with a finger buffet, the worry of having to improvise with crockery and cutlery and all related sundries soon disappears, as guests simply tuck into their food with their ‘fingers’ when having their meal. There are many options of foods that can be prepared with simplicity and ease for a finger buffet and we explore some of the common ones below.

Sandwiches Platter:

possibly the most common accompaniment to majority buffets, they can made to taste and with ease, on both granary and white bread. Sliced square bread is ideal but muffins/barms/barps/buns, mini rolls, and bagels can all be used. The choice of fillings is wide but mostly depends on the guests tastes. It’s desirable to have a half and half that is, half vegetarian and half meat. Tuna and salmon can also be good considerations. A salad garnishing can be used to spice up the look and the result can be as professional as that supplied by those ‘years on the back’ caterers

Snack selection:

this too is always second on the list of most buffet, be it the traditional, Chinese Mediterranean, or Indian, the result is always the same, a great finger buffet. These can even be served warm or cold. The Indian selection includes vegetable spring rolls, samosas, and onion bajees. The traditional selection includes savoury eggs, pork pies, mini sausages, sausage rolls. The Oriental selection includes vegetable spring rolls, chicken wontons, Peking duck triangles, sesame prawn toasts, and breaded prawns.

As a rule, dipping sauces always accompany a finger buffet with a snack selection as part of it. Choices include Sweet chilli dipping sauce, hoisin dipping sauce, hot chilli sauce etc

Quiche:

in the professional ranks, mini quiches are used and possibly better at finger buffets. But a homemade quiche does the job just as well. If you still have your cooking skills and the time, then there is a whole range of flavours you can have for a quiche, cheese and onion, ham, tuna and sweet corn. Slicing it in small triangles makes it an easy way to pick by the finger.

Nibbles:

the little secret for any buffet is nibbles. Let’s face it, we all love to nibble away, whether at home or at work. So why not consider Crisps, hula hoops, pringles, nuts, dried mixed fruit, Doritos, bites, and many more for your finger buffet. They are a desirable cost effective option to get your guests off to talking start. The more variety the better, but don’t forget, guests tend to go off them quickly. A simple advice is to use them in moderation.

For a more elegant buffet, they are other options like Vol au vonts, crolines, canapés, etc that could be added to your buffet.

These tips can be a great starting point if you are considering a finger buffet but by no means conclusive. And if you are looking for a caterer, our extensive database at Quickbuffet.co.uk, will help you find the best caterers that offer great finger buffets and more.
