So you’ve got everything you need to open that new restaurant or set up that catering business in Dorset. The location is perfect, you have all the catering equipment you need and if you are opening a restaurant, you have the perfect décor in place. But what about the small stuff? Cutlery counts as small stuff doesn’t it?
If you hadn’t thought about the cutlery you will need, that’s OK. Most people don’t. In fact most catering businesses don’t think they need any more than just the regular knife, spoon and fork as part of their cutlery arsenal. But there is so much more to it than that.
The type of cutlery you need often depends on the food you serve, and it may not seem like it, but having the right kind of cutlery can mean the difference between happy customers or not.
The Different Types of Cutlery to Hire in Dorset
When we think of cutlery, the regular knives, forks and spoons come to mind. But it is important to realize that these don’t make a complete cutlery set. There are different types of knives for different purposes and the same applies to spoons and forks. Understanding your client’s needs is the first step in understanding the particular type of cutlery pieces you’ll need.
Let’s take knives as an example. Usually the knife’s design will dictate what it is useful for. A knife can be designed to be useful for cutting, dicing, carving, slicing or chopping. With this in mind, it becomes clear that a knife with dull blades can only be useful for cutting cooked or soft food and serrated knives are ideal for meat. Therefore a dinner knife is completely different from a steak or luncheon knife. If you are serving fish for example, you can’t do so with a steak knife as part of the cutlery.
Picking the Best Cutlery
The main point remains becoming very clear about the food your clients want served at their event and then picking the right cutlery for that event. For restaurants, that means being clear on the restaurant’s main menu before choosing the right cutlery. With the right cutlery in mind it is time to choose the right supplier for your requirements.
If you run a catering business, you need a supplier who makes it easy to find the different types of cutlery pieces that you need and is flexible enough to allow you room to choose something different. Hospitality Hire has a wide-selection of cutlery to choose from and while our pieces exude the best in craftsmanship and elegance to fit right into your unique style, they are also practical. This means you will be able to find a steak knife when you need one, a luncheon knife if that’s what you need or a fish knife when the occasion calls for it.
