7 Satisfying Food Stations

October 13, 2015 by Puff 'n Stuff Catering

They’re interactive, they’re festive and they allow your guests to customize and sample a variety of menu items. We’re talking about Food Stations and they’re cutting out the buffet line.

Lights, camera, ACTION! Chef-attended action stations easily add the wow factor to your event; just think of it as dinner and a show. Our expert chefs prepare made-to-order dishes right in front of your eyes guaranteed to satisfy all types of taste buds. Want extra cheese on your risotto? Yes, please!

Nothing says “special event” like delicious, custom creations served from stylish presentations. Did you know we eat with our eyes first, then our mouths? Once you’ve tantalized tastebuds, spark visual interest with innovative decor, multiple elevations and festive garnishes.

Food stations, whether chef-attended or displayed creatively, are the perfect recipe to entice guests to get out of their seats, move around the room and socialize. Stations are also a great source of conversation; guests will be buzzing about their favorite bites of the night and sharing their best combinations. So, the next time you’re planning a catered event, consider elevating the culinary experience by adding a station or two!
