Whether you’re planning a wedding reception, a small birthday party or a corporate event, choosing the food menu is one of the most important decisions you will make. Laying out an impressive spread of dishes is essential as a delicious banquet will ensure a successful event. 

Working with an experienced caterer to curate your menu and serve palatable food to your guests is highly recommended. A professional caterer will not only plan and prepare food items for your party but will also serve them to the guests and offer clean-up services. 

However, the many myths and misconceptions associated with the role of a caterer discourage many from hiring a caterer. To steer clear of these misconceptions and reap the benefits of working with a reputable caterer, Carolyn’s Creole Kitchen has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about catering. 

Myth 1: Caterers use all frozen foods. 
Contrary to the popular assumption, most caterers don’t use frozen and packaged foods. Caterers who truly care about their clients use fresh ingredients and cook right from scratch to deliver fresh and delicious food to their customers. 

Myth 2: Most caterers use a fast-food setup.
Caterers can prepare everything from finger foods to elaborate meals based on your needs and events. Most caterers subscribe to the Fresh-Food-Is-the-Best-Food mindset and use creative ways to give their clients the best services.

Myth 3: It’s okay to settle for the cheapest price.
If you are not able to taste the food, in advance, or get a free or paid tasting, don’t just settle without reading reviews about the company, or speaking directly with the chef or owner. Make sure that you will be proud of what you are serving your family and friends, without any hesitation. This way, you can at least take the credit for making such a wise decision.
