If you're working with a somewhat flexible budget for your next event, consider adding spice to the meal with a chef-manned action station or two! Forego the traditional buffet and impress your attendees by allowing them to design their own meal and watch the chefs work magic on their plates.
These stations add a luxurious and personal touch to an otherwise traditional dining experience. The food is fresh and hot, and your guests feel catered to with live preparation right before their very eyes.
Depending on the size of your function, you may choose to have one or several action stations. These stations are naturally best fit for a buffet. Although I must say, my first experience with an action station was in a lounge setting in a hospitality room. They served reception-sized portions and the station was regarded as more of a tasting.
Here are a few unique action station ideas for you to consider:
• Asian Wok Station
• Omelet Station
• Meat Carving Station with condiments
• Pasta Station
• Quesadilla Station
• Louisiana Seafood Station
• Sushi Station
