Buffet Catering in Newcastle: What’s The Process?

Tapas buffet

When you’re hosting a party, event or gathering, a stellar buffet is a must. We’re well aware, however, of just how stressful it can be to try and juggle all of your various party preparations, plus take it upon yourself to produce an excellent spread, too. That’s why we specialise in buffet catering in Newcastle. 

Here at Olivia’s Kitchen, we like to take the stress out of the event that you are hosting, so that you can enjoy yourself and the food that has been prepared. Instead of flying around trying to cover all bases yourself, outsource your buffet catering to us and that’s one less major aspect of your gathering to fret about. Today, we thought we would walk you through our process for buffet catering in Newcastle here at Olivia’s Kitchen so that you can get a little insight into how we work.

Wondering what sort of a spread we can whip up? 

First things first, let’s talk food. 

What you would like to include in your buffet is our first port of call. We have a number of pre-curated tapas-style buffet menus as well as a wide selection of signature hot-food dishes available at Olivia’s Kitchen, that can all be ordered via our website. However, if you are looking for something specific and a little more personal to your preferences, we can certainly curate something bespoke for your event in line with what you are looking for. 

All of our food is prepared fresh in-house, using only the finest of ingredients. Once we have your order drawn up, we’ll get to work on each element of your delicious buffet.

Getting your food to you in style 

Once your food is ready, we’ll bring it directly to you. 

All of our deliveries across the North East region are carried out in our very own Olivia’s Kitchen branded vans. These vehicles are temperature controlled in order to ensure that your food is as fresh as possible upon delivery. Our professional drivers will drop off your order, smartly presented in their Olivia’s Kitchen uniforms. 

Your buffet food will be transported in our branded cool bags, beautifully pre-arranged and ready to lay out on our special slate-look presentation platters. If you have ordered hot food as part of your buffet, our staff will take care to assemble this for you, using our stainless-steel serving dishes. 

We can provide more than just the food and drinks

As full-service food caterers, we’re well equipped to provide much more than your food and drinks alone. 

No matter your needs, it is likely that the team here at Olivia’s Kitchen will be able to assist you. So, whether you need tables, chairs, crockery and cutlery supplied, or perhaps require assistance from a uniformed serving team during your event, we can help. Whatever it is that you require to ensure that your buffet is one to remember, we’ll endeavour to make it happen. 

Taking care of the aftermath 

With your buffet looking ship-shape, all that is left for you to do is enjoy your event. We take care of all your needs on the day so that you can simply grab a plate, dig in and relax. 

But what about the aftermath? After a long afternoon or evening of socialising and mingling, tackling the clear-up is probably the last thing you want to do. That’s why we endeavour to take care of that for you. So, once your event is done and dusted, you can head home and put your feet up. 

Our reliable delivery drivers will return the following day in order to collect any cool bags, serving platters or baskets. All of our buffet ware is entirely reusable, recyclable or compostable. As such, returning to collect it is part of our environmental commitment.

You don’t even need to worry about disposing of any leftovers. Simply pop everything back in our cool bags and we’ll take care of it all upon collection.
