How To Create A Grazing Table
We have been noticing lately the growing trend in catering and it’s called “Grazing Tables”.
Grazing Tables are ideal for lager events like weddings or engagement parties and allow your guests to move around and continuously graze. How to style or set up such a table is an often asked question these days. Here are a few hints and tips to help you create yours.
Its all about the location
Place your grazing table in a central place with enough space for guests to move around freely and mingle. You would be surprised how many people love to discuss cheese!
Variety is the spice of life
Choose a variety of aged, hard, soft, and blue cheeses and add plenty of seasonal and dried fruits, nuts, jams, condiments and preserves.
To board or not to board
Chopping boards and wooden planks are a great way to display your cheeses. They create a rustic yet casual look. If you don’t have enough of these on hand then let us suggest you use butcher, brown or baking paper as a base and assemble your cheeses generously on top of them.
Scatter an assortment of nuts, fresh and roasted, followed by a variety of crackers, bread pieces and pretzels. Introduce sprigs of fresh herbs and dried herbs.
Add another dimension
Nothing should look to precise. Hollow out a cabbage to hold the dip for the vegetables. Add a basket to hold seasonal fruits or bread sticks. Use paddle pop sticks instead of spoons in your jars. Remember setting up a display like this is all about making the food look effortlessly beautiful.
