Appetizer Catering in Tampa
Can you make an entire meal of appetizers?
Why not? Appetizers can be anything you want them to be, and you can serve them any time or any place. In some countries, such as Spain, appetizer bars are exceedingly popular. In fact, the Spanish have a word, 'tapear,' that means to go on a tapas bar crawl to sample as many small plates as possible. Known as tapas, Spanish-style appetizers may be served hot or cold, and can include everything from chunks of fish to premium cheeses to cocktail onions to olives. Of course, these are not the only tapas options, but you get the general idea. If you wish to enjoy the company of your guests instead of toiling over a complicated meal from your kitchen, appetizer catering in Tampa is the way to go. ExecChef can set up an appetizer bar buffet-style, or we can send a professional server to circulate through the crowd while offering tasty treats your guests can eat with their hands.
What are the most popular restaurant appetizers?
Everyone's tastes are their own, but experts at Food Business News say that of all the appetizers served at restaurants in the United States, chicken wings are the most popular. French fries, fried calamari, coconut shrimp, and deep-fried cheese-stuffed jalapeno poppers are close contenders. Not everyone is excited about fried snacks, however, and experts note a trend toward lighter options such as lettuce wraps and flat breads with savory toppings. Vegan appetizer options are also gaining traction in the restaurant marketplace.
