Catering a Multicultural Event

Posted on

When faced with the challenge of catering for a multicultural event, you may wonder what to feed the crowd. Consider your guest list: where are they from and what are they accustomed to? If you are catering for a group with different tastes, you have the opportunity to feed people familiar dishes while also offering something new to try.

Just because you are providing two or more different styles of cuisine, don’t feel the pressure to find some kind of segue between the food choices. They might be really random, and there isn’t a lot you can do about that! To avoid awkwardly assuming that a group of people from one culture only like a certain type of food, set all the food on a table using a buffet style. That way, people can take what they like.

Alternatively, you could be creative with fusion cuisine. For example, Asian and Latino foods lend themselves to some delicious fusion recipes. Get creative with tacos – particularly by using traditional Asian sauces to flavor your meat. You could also make sushi inspired rolls, with chicken or beef instead of fish. Indian pizza is another great example of fusion cuisine, using spices like garam masala to make a tasty difference to your regular slice.

Remember, everyday food for one person is a new adventure for another.
