by Prashant Verma Content Strategist

Weddings, engagements, birthdays, anniversaries, or any other festive occasion invites an opportunity to celebrate and rejoice with our close and loved ones. These moments are cherished after several years of such gatherings. Children, grandparents, parents and young ones, all enjoy during this festive moments. These moments are savored by people from different age and social groups. The hosts serve their guests with open arms and warm hearts and fare them well with a wish to rejoice again in their company. It is the hosts' responsibility to cope up with the taste and stature of their guests though. A party or a festive gathering, no matter how big or small, should not fail to hold the dignity of the host which ultimately depends on the quality of service and decoration.

We have been serving to the pink city for quite some time now. We want to take a step further and enhance our initiative by providing people imperative know how that could prove important while choosing food caterers in Jaipur or anywhere else. Here we present 10 important points that need pressing while choosing a caterer for any occasion-

1.      License - One of the first queries that must be inquired of the caterer is their food and drink license. It is one of the most important and most ignored areas of inquiry. Due to increasing malpractices and scrupulous caterers in Jaipur presenting themselves as professionals and charging exorbitant prices, it has become imperative to inquire about their licenses for distribution of food and liquor. It brings a relief to the host and also welcomes an assurance of the service.


2.      Liability Insurance - With the increase in the trend of hosting an open bar in festive gatherings, it has become an issue of utmost importance to inquire about the liability insurance with the caterers in Jaipur. It not only helps with medical expenses in case any of the guests fall sick but also if a guest takes advantage of the open liquor bar a bit too much.


3.      References - First-hand experiences explain the best. Usually, caterers in Jaipur are comfortable while sharing contact information with their previous clients. In case you want a comprehensive description of their quality of service you can always ask them to form a contract between you and their references.


4.      Double Timing - While hiring caterers in Jaipur one needs to be an extra careful as they often work serve to two or more clients in a single day. This results in failure of service and often a mishap. In order to avoid this make sure that your caterer is not working with any other client on the same day so that their undivided attention is focussed on your server only.

5.      Alternative Foods - With the growing sophistication in the society there has been an increase in the complication of preference of food one puts in their mouth. This is usually an output of choice and sometimes due to health reasons. Hence, when hiring event planners and caterers, make sure they have alternatives for gluten-free foods, organically produced and processed foods, halal-meats, kosher meals, sugar-free desserts, etc for those who have tight preferences.


6.      Full Service or Self-Service - Some wedding planners have started provisioning full service in their food catering services. They serve the whole plate in front of the guests without them having even lifted a finger. Some event planners in Jaipur have not started practicing this type of service. However, it only makes sense to inquire beforehand in order to avoid any confusion among the guests.


7.      Packages - Food and event caterers present intricate packages which are all somewhat different from the other. One needs to be exhaustive while selecting the package they think will suit best according to the occasion and the number of their guests. Food caterers try to slip up unnecessary items within their packages in form of beverages and desserts. These need to be especially checked.


8.      Charges - Although people prefer tried and tested food caterers it never goes useless to inquire into the prices and services of other event planners. There is a huge variation in the type of quality of the caterers in Jaipur hence, one must be exhaustive whenever planning an important gathering as such gatherings are meant to fulfill purposes close to emotions of the people and not exploit their pockets.


9.      Tasting - Until and unless the caterer is extremely close to you in terms of relation and trust, do not hire them without tasting their food. Their service is restricted to few hours but the image they will portray to your guests will be yours. One need to be absolutely sure that the food prepared and offered by them is of optimum quality and that their service is up to your expectations if not beyond. The food must always overwhelm you when it comes to tasting. Almost every caterer in Jaipur provides tasting services before the hiring process and it is your right to test the caterer with every scale possible. It is truly said in our societies that food is the one thing in an occasion people remember the most as it holds the reigns to their memories. A host will always make sure that the quality of food is always taken care of by the best.


10.  Final Choice Submission - After finalization of prices and packages it is also important to ask the caterer the time before the occasion before which changes in the food preferences will be entertained. This can prove to be extremely helpful in some tricky situations where perishable items actually perish. Caterers in Jaipur often entertain even the last minute changes in the food preferences.

We are only trying to help elevate the standards of services people receive in exchange for their hard earned money. We at want to make sure the customer does not remain in ignorance due to overwhelming decisions in these situations.
