    Panini Catering is a favorite among many doctors and hospitals in Memphis for catering events. We work with several local hospitals and doctor's offices to make sure doctors and staff are taken care of during special events. We love to bring out smoothie bars and delicious catering options to doctors and nurses.

    Here are a few of the events we've catered for doctors in Memphis recently:

    Dr. Turner loved his omelette bar this week. Who wouldn't love so many omelette filling choices? Breakfast meals are a great catering option for doctors and doctor offices who may be very busy later in the day.

    Had a great time during a Nurses Week! We got to serve smoothies and cappuccino to amazing nurses at Saint Francis Hospital - Memphis and Baptist Memorial Hospital For Women. Nurses are very hardworking and deserve to take a break and enjoy a smoothie!

    We also love serving future nurses! We set up our smoothie bar at events for Baptist College of Healthy Sciences Nursing where future nurses are studying to take care of patients.

    Doctor's Week and Doctor's Day is always a special time for us as we get to cater numerous events. We love visiting local hospitals like Lebonheur to serve food and drinks to the doctors who work hard daily to save lives.

    • Comments Off on Conference Food Catering Trends

    crepe two chefsWe like to keep ourselves updated on catering trends happening in the world so that we can offer world-class on-trend food here in Memphis. That's why we offer action catering to the Memphis region. Cooking fresh food on site in front of your guests is definitely fun and on trend!

    We found this articles of the world's best conference food trends on Tourism Review to be very interesting. The International Association of Conference Centers announced this list of the top ten conference food trends for 2015, and these trends will influence corporate catering and conference catering around the world.

    Conference Food Catering Trends

    Here's a few of the things that made their list of the top conference food trends:

    • Local Food: The first noteworthy trend is the shift towards locally produced food. Today's conference attendees want to fully experience the area in which the conference is held, so giving food a local feel is important.
    • Small Is Good: Larger portions used to excite people, but today, bite-sized desserts have seized the throne. Conferences are pushing aside monstrous slices of cake in favor of small finger foods, like fresh donuts, French macaroons, chocolate truffles, miniature cupcakes, and cookies.
    • Less Fat: In today's increasingly health conscious world, conference chefs are swapping high-fat dishes in favor of flavorful healthy alternatives, working with meal components such as quinoa, tofu, kale, and low-sugar foods that appeal to the taste buds without harming your waistline.
    • Eating Outdoors: To catch attendees' interest, more conferences are utilizing the outdoors to provide a fresh, casual meal that rejuvenates them after a long day of events or meetings. The fresh scenery helps prevent them from feeling bored, tired or worn-down, ensuring that the team is functioning at maximum capacity for the rest of the conference.
    • Get Interactive: An interactive chef station has become a new trend for spicing things up, improving the menu with freshly prepared items like panini or slider. Remember to incorporate gluten-free options into the meal plan.

    Panini Catering Conference Food Catering

    Here's how we at Panini Catering use these trends:

    Local food prepared daily: Our food is all bought locally from food vendors we've used for years. We buy our food locally each day and prep in our kitchens in Memphis and then cook at your event. Fresh food is one of the reasons why we are always rated highly as a Memphis caterer.

    Outside Smoothie (2)Less fat and healthier food: We've got food options with range, including lots of healthy options! If you want food with less fat we've got plenty of healthy foods and will always take requests. We can make green smoothies at our smoothie bar and have served several low sugar smoothie bars before. Want healthier options at your event, just let us know!

    Eating outdoors from the grill: Now that spring has arrived people want to be outside. We can bring our outdoor patio grill to your conference or corporate even to liven up the day. Get everyone outside for a grill out to break up the day and re-energize everyone with our delicious and fast casual food straight from the grill.

    Get interactive with action catering: Our interactive chef stations are what action catering is all about! We freshly prepare paninis and other items at your event right in front of attendees. We have several options for chef stations at your event where we combine the thrill of watching chefs cook with delicious freshly prepared food.

    If you want to order trendy catering for your Memphis event or conference, make sure you give Panini Catering a call!

  • Wedding Catering Trend: Breakfast Foods

    As Memphis wedding caterers, we love to stay up to date on all the wedding catering trends in the industry so we can best serve our customers.

    The Knot recently shared a list of wedding catering trends sharing one of our favorites: breakfast foods!

    The wedding experts explained the wedding catering trend of serving breakfast foods:

    It's your wedding, so why not choose your absolute favorite breakfast foods? Think about it: bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches, pan-fried potatoes and even blueberry pancakes. The trick to pulling it off breakfast food is to make it look like it belongs at a wedding. So ask your caterer for ideas, but a few we love to get you started include bacon and fried egg cupcakes at cocktail hour, mini French toasts, or even jumbo shrimp spiked with Bloody Mary pipettes (trust us, it's amazing).

    Our waffle bar catering fits this breakfast food wedding catering trend perfectly! No wonder why it's been so popular among our wedding clients lately.

    Wedding Waffle Catering

    If serving breakfast foods is the hottest trend in wedding catering, then serving a Belgian waffle bar is sure to be a hit with your wedding guests. We've been serving waffle bars at weddings and other events for years now and promise it will make your guests quite happy.

    Our waffle bar comes with quality Belgian waffles served hot off the iron! We cook each waffle on site in front of guests with our action catering concept. We can serve groups of any size so people are served fresh waffles quickly.

    The waffle bar comes complete with all the toppings your guests will want:

    • Pure Maple Syrup
    • Warm Peaches
    • Chopped Pecans
    • Butter
    • Powdered Sugar
    • Whipped Cream

    So how much does this delicious waffle bar catering cost for your wedding?

    • $8.95 Per Person up to 15 people
    • $7.95 Per Person  16-49 people
    • $6.95 Per Person  – 50-500 people

    Additionally you can add some extras to make your wedding waffle bar really shine:

    • Juice or Coffee – $.75 per person
    • Add Bacon – $1.25 per person
    • Tea (sweet, unsweet, mango, peach) - $8 per gallon

    We really recommend the bacon. Bacon makes most people really happy and will be a huge hit with your waffles! We can also accommodate other waffle toppings you might want. Just ask us when placing your waffle bar catering order.

    If you're planning a brunch wedding or want to use this wedding catering trend, call us at 901-569-5952 to schedule your wedding waffle bar!
