Fork Buffets

At a fork buffet, guests will typically serve themselves using forks, spoons, or other utensils rather than picking up food with their hands.  These types of buffets can include salads, vegetables, meats, vegetarian dishes, pasta, sauces and dressings. Fork buffets are designed to be eaten using cutlery, rather than finger – hence the term “fork buffet”. The range of food available to present at a fork buffet is a lot more varied and interesting than a “finger food buffet”.

Finger Buffets

A finger buffet is a type of buffet where the food provided to the guests is chosen to be easy to eat using only fingers, rather requiring cutlery, although it is polite to provide knives and forks as an option.  Finger buffets are often suitable for parties, receptions, casual gatherings, and funeral wakes, where guests may prefer to eat whilst mingling and socialising without the formality of having to sit down and eat.  Common foods found at a finger buffet include sandwiches, cocktail sausages, sausage rolls, vegetable sticks, spring rolls, mini or slices of quiche, bread rolls, and so on. The foods are generally cold, although some hot options can be included such as chicken wings, tempura prawns but these are often served cold too. 

Our fingers buffets will contain such delights as homemade sausage rolls, homemade scotch eggs, quiches, and many other favourites. We pride ourselves in making as much of the food served as possible.

Finger buffets are often chosen from a practical perspective as they have a small amount of washing up and clearing up, compared to fork buffets or sit down meals, and you don’t need to provide everyone with a seat or require that everyone eats at the same time.  If your event has a rather fluid start time, quite common after a funeral where guests may have to travel from one place to another, a cold buffet can be prepared in advance and easily brought out when everyone is ready. We appreciate that funerals, in particular, are a stressful and emotional time and we do our very best to take the pressure off of you providing food to your guests.
