Unique Food Service Ideas To Thrill Your Customers

Unique Food Service Ideas To Thrill Your Customers
By Angie Hardwick 2 months ago 892 Views No comments

Eating out at our favourite restaurant or bar should always be an enjoyable experience. Not only should the food be cooked to perfection, but it should also be served with loving care. The way in which food is presented and served to us at the table can really make that dining experience memorable. Today there are many varied ways in which to serve food, other than on a ceramic plate. If you are searching for unique and innovative ways in which to serve food then carry on reading. Below we share some exciting and unique food service ideas for you to try.


Mini serving dishes

One exciting way in which to serve food is by using a range of mini serving dishes, such as saucepans, frying pans and casserole dishes. All of these are designed to hold enough food for one person. Serve soup in a mini saucepan, or a dip, veg casserole, or lasagna can be placed in a mini casserole dish. A mini frying pan can also be used for a fun take on a cooked breakfast.

The wooden serving board

If you are serving bread, cheese or crackers with a selection of fruit or pâté, then why not use a wooden chopping board? This is not only a practical solution for cutting bread and cheese, but it also helps to create that rustic and homely look for the modern, family-friendly dining experience. Choose a selection of mini chopping boards and large chopping boards that can be shared.

Serving baskets

Serving food in baskets always adds a fun element to any meal. The great news is that there are many different types of baskets out there. A copper roasting basket is a great all-rounder and can be used to serve a variety of roasted vegetables or fish and chicken bites. There are also disposable options in the form of baskets made from greaseproof paper that are ideal for serving chips drenched in salt and vinegar. You can also find chip baskets that are made from stainless steel.

Terracotta bowls in all sizes

If you want to stay fairly traditional in the way in which you serve food, but want to do it with a twist, then colourful terracotta bowls are a good choice. These bowls come in a range of sizes, so you could serve a dip or mini bites in a small bowl, warm soup in a larger bowl, and bigger bowls can be used to hold rice and pasta for a table of friends.

Bento box

A truly quirky way of serving food is to use a bento box. This is a rectangular box that has several compartments for storing food, much in the same way as a lunchbox. This is fairly common when serving Japanese food, but it can be used with any type of cuisine, not just fast food. It would suit Spanish tapas and serving a selection of pastries or cakes.

Buckets

Buckets are a fun, alternative way to serve a variety of foods. A mini serving bin with a lid is not only fun but practical, as it keeps food warm. It can be used for holding stews, fried chicken, chips or even slices of fruit. Copper buckets with a handle can be used for serving bread or rolls, but it can also be used for storing cutlery and napkins. A metal food bucket for four people is great for when you want to cater for parties or small gatherings.

Wooden crate with paper

When serving any kind of fried food, then a great food serving option is to use wooden crates, or boxes, that are lined with paper. Serve crispy spring rolls, crispy salt and pepper chicken, sausage rolls or curly fries. The boxes can be reused several times and then recycled, so they are good for the environment. These wooden crates are advantageous when you want to evoke a street food vibe.

Tiered serving plates

These type of serving plates are usually used for cream teas or displaying fancy cakes. But, why not use them to serve canapés or lots of dips as a starter? These tiered plates are also a good way to serve bread rolls for a large table or for displaying a selection of cheeses.
