Barbecue season is on its way!

by | Feb 17, 2021 | BBQ Catering | 0 comments

It may be a bit chilly at the moment, but Spring is just around the corner! And with Spring and Summer obviously being the warmer months of the year (well, hopefully!) these are the months when charcoal smoke fills the air with the scent of charred meats, and al fresco dining becomes the norm. Specialists in barbecue catering, Essex based Plenty of Thyme, are once again looking forward to the season of great food, wonderful clients, and lovely British weather. Like most people, this is our favourite time of the year! And after the horror show of the last year (which we won’t go into here, I think we are all fed up with hearing about it), we believe this Summer is going to be one to remember!

The decision to have a barbecue is either well thought out, or an impromptu decision. There doesn’t seem to be a middle ground. Some may look at a specific date, or the weather forecast to plan a barbecue. Others may be sitting at work and decide at 16:59 pm, it’s just too warm to eat indoors, and so a trip to the butcher or supermarket is top of the agenda. Either way, delicious food is going to sizzle on the barbecue!

If like us, you’re a lover of all things barbecue, then we suggest that you consider hosting a barbecue and hiring Plenty of Thyme as your caterers. With over 20 years of experience in catering, our work is to the highest standard. We have hosted weddings, garden parties, and public events. After all, it wouldn’t be fair to keep our wonderful food all to ourselves now would it? And with Plenty of Thyme as your very own barbecue catering team, you can relax and spend more time with your guests, leaving us to do what we do best…serve delicious food!

Our Barbecue Food

Marinate, marinate, marinate. It’s no secret, that the longer you marinate your food, the more intense the flavour. That’s why all of our meat, fish, and vegetarian food is marinated for at least 24 hours before it gets its first sizzle on our barbecue. To help enhance the flavour in our food, we take our time to select our charcoal too.

We provide the plates, cutlery, and condiments so you don’t have to worry about those either!


Bespoke It

Perhaps you have some ideas of your own that you’d like to discuss? Do you have a recipe that you think your guests would love that we could add to our barbecue menu? Or perhaps you like the idea of providing your guests with some dishes of your own, such as canapes or wood-fired pizza, and hiring us just to do the barbecue? The beauty of working with Plenty of Thyme is that we are expert caterers that share your goal of delivering a great experience for your guests, so whatever your request, we try to accommodate.


Finishing Touches

After 20 years of working in the industry, Plenty of Thyme have forged strong ties with some wonderful suppliers, who we would gladly recommend. These range from marquee and prop hire companies, to a fully stocked, mobile bar company! Imagine that, a full bar set up in your own garden! We can put you in touch with these trusted suppliers, who will really bring your event to life. You can view a list of Our Friends here.
