Catering Trends 2010

18 Февраль 2010 Mariya Нет комментариев

Сatersource Magazine, the top catering industry magazine, recently published their Trends 2010 issue filled with wonderful menu inspiration, decor themes, and insider ideas.

Several 2009 trends remain HOT for 2010 but with a twist:

1. Sliders– a mainstay at not just catered functions, but now at every corner restaurant, sliders are a national hit.  But, for the 2010 bride, ask your caterer to morph up the ingredients for a new take on the trend.  It’s not just about beef and cheese anymore, but rather ethnic flavors like Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwiches, or Southern treats like Barbecued Pulled Pork, or even seafood delicacies like Crabcakes between the buns.

2. Green influences– “emphasis on the environment is no longer a novelty, but an integral part of today’s catering,” writes Linda Picone, and it has been a building trend over the past several years.  From green decor influences, to products that are earth friendly or eco-disposable, and foods that are sustainable and organic, this is a trend that I hope never wains.

3. Stations– though again, action stations have been a trend for several years on the West Coast and took a little longer to travel to the East Coast, they are still a hot comodity at any event.  Essentially taking the traditional buffet and separating out and building upon the food concepts, this trend is FUN and delicious for any event from rehearsal dinners to wedding receptions.  Interaction between the guests and the chef attendants while food is being prepared is the key to success with this format.  Additionally, forming a synergy between the station menus and the event theme is a plus!

4.  “Less is More” for Decor– as budgets have tightened across the US during the recession, savy hosts have found ways for their decor to do double duty, or have downsized that portion of the function with well placed elements so that they can focus more funds on the food and beverage portion of their event.  For 2010 this trend will be further implemented through the use of “living” decor.  Herbs in florals and as station decor is a sizzling trend that also reflects an interest in the environment.  Many caterers suggest to their 2010 clients to opt for basic table linens in neutral shades as they are more cost effective than specialty linens, but can be a wonderful base for the addition of color through seasonal florals, specialty lighting, or live plants.

That covers some of the most rooted trends from 2009 sticking around for 2010 with a twist.  Stay tuned for my next post on the upcoming new catering trends for 2010.
