Perhaps you fancy going all in with Machbus as a nod to this year’s host nation? It’s described by Wikipedia as “consisting of rice, meat and vegetables, is the national dish of Qatar, typically made with either lamb or chicken and is slow-cooked to give it a depth of flavour”.
Or perhaps you prefer a ‘pie and pint’ vibe?
Either way, having a great event hire partner in the wings will ensure you’ve got all eventualities covered, such as –
- Suitable tables and chairs for formal set-ups or more casual and relaxed mix and mingle affairs
- Relevant kitchen equipment to keep hot food hot and cold drinks cold
