Catering for your outdoor event

An outdoor event can be anything from a casual barbecue at a family fun day to a corporate garden party or an open air wedding. Whatever the occasion, well organised catering can make or break an event.

With a wide variety of outdoor events taking place, especially in the warmer months, outdoor catering by event specialists can complete an event, without organisers having to worry about kitchen facilities. With a vast selection of outdoor foods now available as well, organisers can have the confidence that every guest will be well looked after.

Outdoor catering from The ALS Group

With 30 years’ experience in the catering industry, The ALS Group has catered for small and large events outdoors and we pride ourselves on our original range of food.

Selecting the right menu is vital.  Our food choices include the traditional options that are often found at outdoor events, such as BBQ catering, hog roast catering and fish and chips, but we also offer a range of street foods, wood fired pizzas and paella and tapas. For larger outdoor events, our street food stalls and mobile catering units are available for hire in a food court format to cater for higher volumes of traffic.

Optimising the outdoor space

There can be challenges when organising an outdoor event, but these can be viewed positively when employing a specialist catering company. The absence of a kitchen for example, frees the caterers up who are not bound by the constraints of permanent facilities, to offer dishes that can be cooked in different ways, such as our swinging grill. This results in fun and creative cooking that can be enjoyed by guests. Our paella and tapas is prepared fresh right in front of diners, who can revel in the aromas generated, while being entertained.  

An outside catering company like The ALS Group is experienced in facing all challenges and we will cook food onsite or bring it in, to suit client requirements. Our expertise will help your event to run as smoothly as possible.

Fresh ingredients

When catering for an outdoor event in warm weather, we understand the importance of seasonal foods that are light, tasty and easy to eat on the go. Obviously fun foods are always popular, particularly with younger guests, but we are also able to supply a selection of healthy snacks and salads too. We endeavour to source all our ingredients fresh, from local suppliers and farmers, and all our dishes are taste-tested before being offered to clients.

Liquid refreshments

It is equally important to serve a choice of drinks at any outdoor event, to enable visitors to remain hydrated, and cool or warm depending on the season. We can provide a fully stocked and licensed mobile bar for any function which can be tailored to suit the size of event. Alternatively, we can supply bottle fridges where organisers prefer to supply their own stock.

Catering for different dietary requirements

When providing food at a public event, organisers are obliged to ensure that all dietary requirements are met and catered for. The ALS Group offers vegan, vegetarian, gluten- and dairy-free options and are able to observe religious restrictions too.

Regardless of the size or nature of your outdoor event, The ALS Group will work with you to make it a success. To discuss your upcoming event and to see how we can help you, call our friendly team on 01526 397996 or drop us an email to discuss your requirements today.
