We'd recommend one main meat item per person - so a steak or burger. The same would apply for plant-based meal items: one patty per person.
It's always a good idea to have some extra smaller items, like lamb cutlets, sausages or grilled skewers on hand for those with larger appetites. Of course, these can make great meals on their own. If that's your plan, aim for two to three smaller items per person.
Generally, yes, unless you're ordering pre-cooked food or if you're hiring a food truck as those come with cooking facilities onboard.
Unfortunately not. If you're looking for. someone to cook the food fresh for you at your event, you will need to hire them for a few hours. It's usually offered by the same catering company supplying the food, but if it's not, we can help you out with a cook. (And include it all on one, easy, consolidated bill!)
EatFirst's top-rated corporate catering services are how we got started, but we can offer so much more than just great food.
Wait staff, bartenders, crockery and cutlery, glassware, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, decorations and more.
A barbecue is so much more than just juicy burgers and gourmet sausages. Don't forget to consider these important items ahead of your corporate BBQ.

Not everyone eats meat... or dairy... or gluten... or nuts... the list goes on. But that doesn't mean you can't plan a fantastic BBQ event for your team.
There are plenty of high-quality meat substitutes available in all shapes and sizes. Pick up some plant-based sausages, burgers and skewers for those who don't eat animal products.
Of course, there's also the option of delicious grilled veggie skewers - always a winner!
You'll also need to consider what side dishes, toppings and buns are bring used. Cheese on burgers will be a no-go for vegans, but plant-based cheeses are a great alternative. Brioche buns do contain egg, so you'll need to have a vegan-friendly bread option available.
Fortunately, there's no gluten in meat itself, but often marinades do contain it so you'll need to pay attention to the additional ingredients, recommends BeyondCeliac.org. For example, soy-based sauces and marinades usually contain gluten.
Just like when you're avoiding gluten, it's about avoiding certain marinates and sauces than it is about avoiding the meat itself.
Milk or yogurt is sometimes used to marinade and tenderise meat, and cheese is a common topping on burgers. Avoiding both is super easy. Ensure you're ordering meats that aren't marinated with any dairy products and consider either a lactose-free or plant-based cheese as a topping!
It's best to double check the ingredients on any marinated items. Popular BBQ flavours like satay have sauces that are packed with peanuts.
Depending on the severity of the allergy, you'll want to make sure there's no cross-contamination on the grill too. If you've just got the one BBQ, it's a good idea to cook the nut-free items first to ensure there's no unwelcome surprises.
