What an amazing  and stress free way to host at home. Was so easy to select a menu online ( the team is also very helpful on the phone line if you have questions before booking). Food was delicious , chefs were prompt and professional and entertaining. Overall beautiful experience (all while being in the comfort of my own home)

Our Top FAQs

What equipment do I need to provide?

Our chefs usually use the equipment (pots, pans, oven, stone etc), and serve ware (glasses, plates, serving platters, etc) in the customers homes. If you are low on equipment or need the chef to provide this, please add this into your request (this will cost extra). Once booked in, you can directly message or call your chef to confirm on the exact equipment required. In case of BBQ equipment, we suggest hiring from AllensHire as the best option as they deliver within 48 hours and offer both charcoal and gas BBQs.

What is the minimum spend?

The minimum spend is £196.

What happens once I book?

Once you have placed your order, you will receive a booking confirmation e-mail containing further details pertaining to your event and you can also chat with the chef via your account. You can always edit guest number or dishes post booking. You will receive the menus and place cards via post. On the day of your event, the chef will arrive with the ingredients to cook a delicious meal for you while you relax with your friends.

Hire Caterers for Christmas

Christmas is a great time to gather with all your loved ones and celebrate with festive dishes and mulled wine. If you plan on hosting a Christmas party at home or a venue, you should consider hiring a caterer who can alleviate the stress of cooking and allow you to enjoy the event.

Great food can help create unique long-lasting memories. And hiring a caterer from yhangry’s vast network could help make your Christmas party the most wonderful time of the year.

What Foods Should You Have at a Christmas Party?

Christmas parties can have any number of food options. They should usually include festive finger foods like cheese and crackers to allow people to eat and mingle. Other essentials include holiday staples, such as festive cookies and gingerbread men. All this should be accompanied by festive drinks, like hot chocolate or mulled wine. 

If you plan on having a sit-down meal at the event, you can’t go wrong with a delicious roast turkey with all the trimmings.

Everyone’s ideal Christmas party looks a little different. So you should work with a caterer to create a bespoke menu plan for your guests based on the number of guests and their culinary needs. Be sure to include vegetarian and gluten-free options to make sure no guests feel left out. 

While there are no restrictions to what you can serve at a Christmas party, you can’t go wrong with some of these festive favourites. 

  • Roast turkey cranberry sandwich 
  • Roasted butternut squash hummus
  • Savoury breadsticks
  • Christmas prime rib
  • Rosemary roasted potatoes 
  • Strawberry cheesecakes
  • Caramelised apricots with almond cream.
