Beat the Winter Blues with Delicious Fruit Platters and Dessert Trays
Fruit Platters Offer an Attractive and Healthy Complement to Any Catered Event
With winter now settled in for a few months, Toronto residents may become disillusioned by the limited choices in the produce departments of their local grocery stores. Until the local growing season returns next year, there will be fewer types of fruit available, with many being imported from international markets, and several with a level of quality that can be somewhat questionable due to transportation and storage times.
But there are two facets to purchasing fruit in the winter of which local residents can rest assured: that quantities are often lower and costs are almost certainly much higher; it is for reasons such as this that people tend to eat less fruit throughout the winter season. However, rather than being disenchanted by these circumstances, party hosts and event organizers can actually use it to their advantage – by including fresh fruit platters as part of their catering menus for private occasions or corporate gatherings.
Such fruit platters can provide an excellent, and healthy, complement to hot and/or cold foods served at a variety of functions such as:
- Private dinner parties
- Sports-themed parties
- Open house-type functions
- Corporate event receptions
- Meeting breaks/lunch buffets
- Fundraiser galas (intermissions)
- And much, much more …
