Italian catering

Wow, December sure went by fast! With 2024 right around the corner, we thought, what better time is there than the present to talk about the newest catering trends?

In this blog, we’ll dive into a few of the many trends we anticipate seeing in 2024.

As always, if you need an event caterer in Portland to bring these trends to life, give us a call. We’re here to help!

upcoming catering trends in 2024

Below are a few of the catering trends we expect to see in 2024:

fresh, local ingredients and zero waste

Using ingredients from your community helps to support the community. At Mundo Catering, we strive to offer our clients the highest quality (and delicious!) food, which we source locally as much as possible. We also pride ourselves on making sure little to no leftovers go to waste and using eco-friendly packaging and supplies whenever we can.

local ingredients

flavors from around the globe

One of the best parts about catering is that you get the chance to try things you may have never had the chance to try before. We expect the trend of international flavors to stay strong in 2024. Not only can they make for a tasty meal, but they can also transport you to another part of the world with every bite.

Below are some examples of flavors you could incorporate into your menu. Remember: the options are endless!

  • Cajun
  • Mexican
  • Chinese
  • Italian
  • Indian

dessert stations

Dessert is a crowd favorite, and it can be as fun as you’d like! With a dessert station, you can get the opportunity to try multiple desserts (and view them all in one place). Dessert stations can be packed with everything from cookies and cake to ice cream (and beautiful décor to bring the look together and give the station a special flair!) Whatever you like, we can make it happen.

grazing tables of all kinds

Think of a grazing table like a large charcuterie board, which is composed of all of your favorite meats, cheeses, crackers, olives, nuts, and fruits. You can turn anything into a grazing table – and give your guests a delicious spread of food to enjoy. Not only is this fun and simple, but it’s also convenient for guests who love the thought of “grab and go” – which is another big trend we expect to see in the new year.

Here are some fun grazing table ideas to make your event a splash:

  • Brunch
  • BBQ
  • Antipasto
  • Sushi
  • Dessert
