Those in the business of catering have a specific challenge…Being diverse. With a variety of visitors and travelers across the glob, a caterer must have the ability to adjust to the different cultures. This really can be a positive challenge as it gives the chef an opportunity to expand and really branch out with their culinary gift. This was especially targeted toward the Filipino culinary industry which enjoys a huge variety of visitors. This expansion encompasses more then just the cuisine as one must be aware of place settings and presentation of each different culture.
- There is an increasing demand for food caterers to have knowledge and experience with cross-cultural cuisines.
- Catering chefs are looking to give their multi-cultural guests more diverse menu choices.
- Cross-cultural meals go beyond just the food that is served and includes condiments and appropriate eating and serving utensils.
“Serving diverse dishes takes more consideration than just the ingredients to be used and perfecting the taste of the food.”
