Talent to Meet the Palate
Over breakfast with a friend who caters, we discussed bride & groom-to-be decisions concerning food. He shared a thought in a very interesting way. Namely, that caterers must have the “talent to meet the palate”.
In an age on online searches, it’s sometime difficult for a busy couple to find additional time for caterer meetings. Yet this meeting can be essential for assessing the talent of a caterer. It’s not just their experience, but their experience gained preparing the food you particularly desire. For example, it might be Italian or American, but is it southern when you desire northern flair.
The meeting, coupled with a tasting could reveal the caterers experience in meeting your needs. Additionally, your palates’ response might reveal the unexpected. That their food isn’t what you thought you wanted, BUT its’ something new and exciting. The palate is a very distinctive, individual thing. But so too is your desire for the wedding food of your dreams. In doing so, the caterers must indeed have the talent to meet your palate.
