BBQ food

English weather must be the most talked about subject.  Will it be hot, will it rain, can we expect snow this winter.  And the weather forecasts are not forecasts but guesswork sometimes.  I can hear it in my head,  ‘and the weather for tomorrow is – sunny, with perhaps showers from the east. Maybe a slight westerly breeze which may cause it to cloud over later’.  Does that sound familiar?

Anyway, summer’s coming and it is BBQ time whatever the weather and what better way than to use a professional gas BBQ. Cinders are possibly the leading UK manufacturers of barbecues and at Adams Catering Hire, they are the only ones we supply.  Renowned for their reliability and ease of use, they are sturdy and give the right impression and do the job exceptionally well. Powered by propane gas they can be sited anywhere in the garden, gas can be supplied when you hire from Adams. Gas barbecues win every time for their ability to control the flames and temperature of the heat.

All food is great for barbecue food, but you do have to make sure that the food is cooked through thoroughly. My favourite is fish and it is so easy, just wrap in foil, add some lime juice and a few herbs, oh its so good.  But, my children love all the burgers and sausages that I can cook. To give food flavour, I always marinade mine the night before and you can use so many different herbs, spices, yoghurts and even supermarket mixes these days to add a smokey flavour.  Lots of healthy salads and what a great day can be had by all. Chuck in some wine and a few garden games and it’s a fabulous way of getting the whole family together for fresh air and exercise.

You can use Adams for all of your event hire in London and surrounding areas, just view our web site for more information.

Why hire a caterer for your next party?

Why would anyone hire a Caterer for a party at home for a few friends and family?

Lets look at the choices;

If you ‘do it yourself’

  • You will need to go to the supermarket to buy all the food and then bring it home and prepare it. Is your fridge big enough, or will you need to hire one in? Is your oven big enough to cope with everything you need to cook?
  • What about seating, will you borrow tables & chairs, plates & glasses from friends, and will you need a van to collect it all and then return them?
  • And, when you have finished doing all of this, are you really in the frame of mind for a party?

BUT, If you choose a Caterer, he or she will;

  • Buy and prepare all the food.
  • Arrange for any hire equipment, i.e. tables,chairs,plates & glasses.
  • Serve & clear after the event.

All you have to do is get ready, relax and mingle with your guests and have a jolly good time.

Yes, it seems like it costs more, but when you weigh up the waste (because you buy too much food) and your time spent buying and cooking, its not actually that much more and if you also cost in the fact that you will be an unpaid waitress for the whole time and you won’t get to enjoy all that effort you put in, I really consider that it is worth the extra few pounds.
