In the Lowcountry of Georgia and South Carolina, we love our relaxed lifestyle. Why not carry that sense of comfort and easy living over to your catered event?
The set-up is something I call “Savannah Style.” For events of this nature, only 60-70 percent of your guests are seated, and a variety of food stations combine to create a fun evening of food and drink. I enjoy this type of service because it allows your more adventurous guests to try unusual dishes -- while also offering easily recognizable favorites for others. There’s a little something for everyone!
The stations can take several forms – or introduce a variety of service styles: Butler-passed hors d’oeurves, self-service stations and manned stations.
Shown here, guests can self serve shrimp and grits into containers that make socializing and enjoying the food a simultaneous treat. With this self-serve option, guests with shellfish allergies can have another topping from which to choose -- while keeping cheesy, creamy grits on the menu.
The flexibility of multiple “Savannah Style” stations enables you to design a menu that accommodates special dietary needs – or to incorporate ethnic selections like this chicken stir fry and fried rice – with other styles of cuisines. It’s the perfect solution for a wedding couple with different food traditions as part of their family culture.
Your special event is all about having fun. We think creating a menu based upon "Savannah Style" is a perfect way to entertain guests, have fun with your menu, and explore a variety of different cuisines.
