Grazing Platters/Boxes

To graze

Verb /greɪz/

a. to eat small portions of food or snacks in place of regular meals.

b. to sample small portions of a variety of foods at one meal.

I simply love an Italian antipasto, (translated as “before the meal”) chunks of delicious cheese, salty prosciutto, salamis, olives, sundried tomatoes and delicious, freshly baked bread.  I could quite happily eat this all evening and simply skip the meal.

And so, the term “grazing” food is born – the latest foodie phenomena taking the UK by storm.  Grazing table, platter, box – however it is presented, it really is just like an Italian antipasto. Only it isn’t just a little taster before the main event, it is the main event. A cornucopia of little delicious bites, paired with dried fruit, honeycomb and artisan crackers, homemade chutneys and tasty dips.  A match made in foodie heaven.  Grazing platters are about abundance, overflowing tables to be nibbled at throughout the celebration - no cutlery necessary.

We started serving our buffets on big chunky wooden boards long before it became the trendy way to do it, simply because it looks beautiful – and we still can deliver your food on platters to share with your family or small gatherings under 6.  However, more and more people are requesting individually packed boxes, enough tasty treats to feed one person, no sharing necessary and no squabbling over the last chunk of parmesan! We have temporarily stopped offering our grazing table service.
