Food to share at relaxed events
Sharing platters are one of our favourite catering options for a relaxed lunch or dinner. The platters or boards are served at each table for the guests to share between themselves – no queuing at buffet stations! This relaxed and informal atmosphere encourages the guests to chat and mingle together.
