Finger Food for Parties

Tapas, Light Bites and Bowl Food


Perfect catering for informal parties and gatherings

For informal parties there is nothing nicer than finger food. This can include light bites, tapas dishes and bowl food, which are all popular choices at the moment. Finger food tends to be slightly more substantial than a dainty canapé, but should still be easy to eat whilst standing up at a party.

We can design a finger food menu to suit your occasion, which can include hot and cold finger food options depending on the facilities available at your party venue.

Sample dishes for finger food catering

Finger food works well with reinventions of classic dishes - perhaps mini burgers with all the trimmings, or scampi and chips in mini paper cones. Mini filled bagels and house-made Blythburgh pork or vegetarian sausage rolls in a variety of flavours are also popular options. Bowl food works well with more exotic choices, whether Indian curries, Thai bowl food or Japanese rice dishes. Tapas is the classic original finger food. We can offer all the Spanish tapas classics such as béchamel croquettes or paprika squid bites.

Fresh, seasonal finger food for your party guests

As with all our party food, wherever possible we use seasonal ingredients for our finger food. All our meat is free range and we use sustainable fish, which we source directly from Billingsgate market (where we have our kitchen) so you're getting the freshest ingredients available.

Our chefs prepare our finger food at your event, so it is as fresh as possible. Finger food works well as a buffet, or we can provide waiting staff to serve the food and also to keep your guests’ glasses topped up, to ensure your event runs smoothly.

At Platter & Slate, we believe that food should be at the heart of a memorable event. Our delicious finger food can form a tasty part of your informal party.
