Cutting Costs Without Sacrificing Quality

When it comes to corporate catering, the phrase ‘pennywise and pound foolish’ couldn’t be more true. While cost cutting strategies might seem necessary for budget-conscious companies, sacrificing quality in order to lower prices can ultimately lead to unhappy employees or clients.

Luckily, there are ways to keep costs down without skimping on portions sizes or menu selection:

  • Plan meals ahead of time: By carefully planning out menus and ordering ingredients in bulk, private chefs can cut down on waste and save money.
  • Optimize portion sizes: Private chefs have a keen understanding of how much food is needed per person, which means they can avoid over-ordering and overspending.
  • Consider alternative protein sources: Meat-based dishes can be expensive, but vegetarian options like lentils or tofu offer healthy and affordable alternatives.
  • Choose seasonal ingredients: Not only do seasonal fruits and vegetables taste better, they’re often cheaper as well.

By working closely with clients to understand their budgetary limitations, private chefs can craft delicious menus that won’t break the bank. With a little meal planning and smart ingredient choices, even large groups can enjoy high-quality catering without blowing the budget.

Stress-Free Experience

As we discussed earlier, corporate catering with a private chef can be extremely cost-effective. But it’s not just about the savings you’ll make – there are many other benefits to consider.

One of these is the stress-free experience that comes with having a private chef cater for your large group. With more time saved on planning, shopping and cooking, you’re able to create a peaceful atmosphere for your guests where they can relax and enjoy their meal without any worries or distractions. And because our chefs use only the highest quality ingredients in all their dishes, you can rest assured that every bite will be delicious and satisfying.

Another advantage of working with a private chef for your corporate event is menu flexibility. Our expert chefs work closely with clients to plan menus tailored to their specific tastes and dietary requirements. Whether you want classic comfort food or something more adventurous, we’ve got you covered.

So why settle for boring boxed lunches when you could have an unforgettable culinary experience?

With so many benefits to choosing corporate catering with a private chef, it’s easy to see why this option is becoming increasingly popular among businesses of all sizes. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help make your next event one to remember!

These guys catered for a friend's 40th and they were incredible! They brought everything, cooked everything, served everything and even loaded the dishwasher at the end! The food was so delicious - my favourite was probably the different ways they did pork - pork belly and pulled pork - melt in the mouth tender. Usually I hate pulled pork but the chefs version was so succulent I had to go back for seconds. Would definitely recommend them. Such a friendly, professional and hospitable nature and I really, really appreciated the leftovers that I had for the next two days! I also need to give a nod to the white chocolate and matcha cheesecake. Creamy deliciousness. Definitely check them out for all your tasty needs.

Wow wow wow! We booked the team to celebrate my Husband’s 30th Birthday and I am so glad we did. Rather than a weekend trip to London we wanted to do something a little different and Simon certainly delivered. The food was sensational, we did the British Summer 3 courses. There was a perfect amount of time between courses and the set up appeared seamless. We had Jakob serving the dishes and sharing his cocktail secrets and Alex was very efficient in keeping the kitchen spotless, it was like they were never there. Highly recommend for any occasion!

Edward and his colleague came to cook for my friends and I as part of my 40th birthday celebrations. Edward agreed a bespoke menu with me in advance that had me salivating and the reality did not disappoint. Every single dish was delicious and loved by all guests including fussy children! The only complaint was that their tummies couldn't eat more than 2 plates each even though they wanted to! Everything was tidied up and washed up afterwards, with every detail thought of to make it a fuss free and wonderful experience for all. THANK YOU!

From initial email enquiry to the very end of our party Edward and his team were a delight to deal with. They were consummate professionals. The BBQ was delicious, the drinks never stopped flowing, everything was superb. They made our party a day to remember and took all the stress out of hosting. I would wholeheartedly recommend Zest and I'm looking forward to having another occasion to employ their services. Thank you.

I used this company for my 60th birthday and they were amazing. They gave great variety of menu choices including vegan options, they turned up on time, the food and services was great and they cleaned up afterwards so you would never have known they had been there. They were very professional and friendly throughout the evening without being intrusive on our evening. My whole family really enjoyed the experience. I would recommend Edward and the rest of his staff to anyone wanting a very special evening at home. I hope to use them again sometime in the future. They are a bit expensive but for a special occasion it is worth paying for.
