You may be wondering what food is expected at a wake. Having a loved one pass away and having to organise a funeral and wake is the last thing you want to do when you are grieving. A catering service can help take some stress away by providing freshly prepared food, delivered and laid out ready for when you all return from the funeral. Even the smallest of gatherings can be difficult to cater for when you are not there to prepare.
What food is suitable for a wake?
caterers can provide either hot or cold food. Most wakes are finger foods as some family and friends may not want to eat large meals. Grazing board, cold buffets are the best options as these can be prepared and delivered before guests arrive. Hot buffets will require electric source, some cooking or reheating on site. Caterers usually provide disposable cutlery and plates. So you won’t have to worry about clearing away. A wake is a celebration of life and shouldn’t be stressful for you to arrange.
