So if you’ve spent any time on social media lately, you will have witnessed the meteoric rise of the grazing table. Some might argue that it’s simply a buffet, but a grazing table is the food equivalent of a perfectly curated Instagram feed… a visual treat! Not only does it taste delicious, it looks delicious!
So what exactly is a grazing table? As the name suggests, it’s a table for grazing! The key to a great grazing table is that food items are not always contained in traditional bowls or plates… they are cleverly arranged to artistically spill, overlap and blend together to create an absolute feast for the senses as well as a feast for the belly! To put it in more practical terms, imagine a retaining wall of cheese holds back an overflow of crackers which are carefully held in position by a cascade of olives. The choices are endless!

Choose a selection of sweet treats, pair them with artfully arranged piles of chocolates, fresh and dried fruits and more to create the perfect dessert experience right at your guests fingertips.
From an intimate gathering to a more elaborate affair, a grazing table is a great option for so many reasons.
The most important rule to remember about a grazing table? There are no rules! Simply use a combination of whatever foods you think your guests will most enjoy and away you go! Bon Appétit!
