Fi and I are going to our first (and hopefully last) taste testing tomorrow! we are very excited but not sure what to expect. we gave them what we wanted for our menu but I am curious of what types of questions we should ask and what we should confirm. we have yet to actually book this cater but we are hoping it is what we want.
i would like to hear from ppl with experience on this what to expect.
Also, i am from a very small town and we will actually be going to their home..kind of weird i know.
I guess you could say i am nervous…

I found it helpful to ask about portion size and how red meat is cooked to serve a group. We also noticed bacon was used in an app. where we didn’t expect it (this was only helpful as some of FI’s friends don’t eat pork). Tastings are also a good time to ask about changing things if there’s something you don’t like or if there is something you do like about a main course you decide not to choose. For example, we asked if we could switch the side on one of our main dishes. Otherwise, I would say just go and enjoy the food. Maybe bring along someone with different tastes if you and Fiance tend to like all the same things so you can have a bit of variety on the input.

I would remember to BE HONEST! If you don’t like something, you should tell them, and let them tell you how they could do it differently. We were able to choose specific items to taste also, and they showed us what seemed like hundreds of other options. If you don’t see something that you like, be sure to ask them if they can make it – just because they haven’t before doesn’t mean they can’t or are unwilling (in many cases). Enjoy! It’s a delicious free meal and hopefully the beginning of a great (contractual) relationship!
