Eat, drink and be merry – discover the latest trends in wedding catering.

The multi-award-winning caterers Touchays has shared three top trends to watch out for, or to include in your wedding catering for 2021:

  1. Post Ceremony Food. Clare said, “Instead of canapes served in the traditional way we are being asked by couples to create and find some inspiring, ingenious ways and dazzlingly original ways of presenting luxury canapes outdoors.  For instance, we have designed personal and individual ‘mini grazing boxes’ to ensure the couple’s guests go WOW as they open up their  ‘x-factor gift box”.
  2. Seated lux-elegance. Clare continued, “At Touchays we are seeing 2021 couples returning to seated elegance.  Couples are getting even more creative with their place settings and their food, to ensure that every guest feels totally special.  As a consequence, we are now offering a full styling service.

We are seeing couples gravitating towards focusing on their true preferences, a kind of back-to-their-roots cuisine.  At Touchays, we believe there will be even more focus on seasonal and sourced local food paired with local wines and bubbles.  With the anticipation that more time will be spent around the table, we are being asked to create not a three-course meal but a  five-course banquet!  As a consequence, team Touchays are going to get even more creative and elevate every dish, to embrace the seasons.  Then we are going to really push the boat out for the grand finale, the dessert, combining exquisite flavours, aromas to drive you crazy and adding those extra special and beautiful touch to our clients weddings.

At Your Kent Wedding Clare’s final share, really got us thinking and we hope this will continue into the future as not a trend but the norm.

  1. Gifting food. Clare said, “At the end of 2020 we proudly launched Touchays Boxed.  This service enables couples to send gift hampers, packed with all their favourite Touchays prepacked goodies, to attendees, unable to be physically there on the day.  These hampers enable absent guests to join in the celebrations, just from afar”.

Best Wedding Catering Company 2019 – Kent

Touchays, an award-winning bespoke, boutique event catering company in Kent, created by Clare and Russell in 1994, are not only celebrating their 25th anniversary this year, but they have also scooped a global wedding award, for their delicious food, creativity, flexibility, food presentation, professionalism and execution of service.

The world’s pre-eminent luxury lifestyle magazine has named Touchays, in The Lux Global Excellence Awards 2019, as the best wedding caterers in Kent.

Clare Smith, the owner, said: “As a family-run catering company, having previously won at the Kent Wedding Awards, imagine how thrilled we all are to now have won an international award!  This is an important award as the magazine editors recognise that the hospitality industry has grown so significantly, and this, combined with increasing customer expectations and dietary requirements, has presented many new challenges for companies, like ours, across the event catering industry.  We are therefore delighted to accept this award, as a testament to the skill and commitment of the team – this is such a great validation of their hard work and dedication to getting the food and service right every time”.

Clare continued; “This global award recognises that we put our clients at the core of everything we do.  We always create strong relationships with our clients, our suppliers and venues, to ensure that we deliver the clients’ favourite dishes, that are personal to them.  We also put a lot into the presentation of food, to really wow guests, so ensuring that our clients are really happy and LOVE rebooking us to cater for their special occasions time after time”.

It’s no surprise that Touchays have won such a prestigious award, as they love working with the best, most delicious and freshest of ingredients that they can chop, grate, peel, boil, and roast to add depth of flavour, to create dishes that can be almost too pretty to eat.  They deliver dishes that will really impress your guests and will create a sense of occasion for a gathering of family, friends or corporate contacts.
