Unique Gluten-Free Catering Ideas for Your Next Celebration

As Australians, we love to celebrate and gather with our loved ones, whether it’s for birthdays, weddings, or any other special occasions. However, with the rise of gluten intolerance and celiac disease, it can be challenging to cater to everyone’s dietary needs. This is where unique gluten-free catering ideas come in. In this blog, we will explore some creative and delicious ways to cater to those who are gluten intolerant without compromising on taste or quality. 

Start with the Basics: Gluten-Free Starters

The starters are the first impressions of any event, and you want them to be tasty and gluten-free. Instead of the usual bread and crackers, opt for gluten-free options such as vegetable crudités and gluten-free dips, gluten-free sushi rolls, or goat cheese wrapped in prosciutto. These options are not only delicious but also add a touch of elegance to the event.

Gluten-Free Grazing Platters

Another idea for gluten-free catering is to create a delicious grazing platter using only gluten-free ingredients. The platter can be filled with colourful and tasty options such as hummus, gluten-free crackers, fresh fruit, gluten-free cured meats, olives, and cheese. This platter will satisfy not only the gluten-free guests but also the non-gluten-free ones.

Customised Gluten-Free Pizza

Who doesn’t love a good pizza? By customising pizzas with gluten-free crusts, you can cater to both gluten-intolerant and non-intolerant guests. Give them the option to choose their toppings, and everyone will be happy. You can also provide gluten-free pizza bases with various gluten-free toppings such as grilled veggies, chicken, and GF sausages to add variety.

Gluten-Free Barbecue

Aussies love to fire up the barbecue for any celebration, making it a perfect option for catering. To make it gluten-free, make sure to have gluten-free options for the marinades, sauces, and condiments. For example, you can serve gluten-free marinaded chicken skewers, vegetable skewers, and gluten-free sausages. Additionally, consider cooking gluten-free burgers on a separate grill to avoid cross-contamination.

Sweet and Savoury Gluten-Free Desserts

No celebration is complete without desserts, and there are plenty of gluten-free options to choose from. You can create a beautiful dessert table filled with both sweet and savoury options, such as gluten-free brownies, macarons, fruit tarts, and mousse. For something savoury, consider creating a gluten-free cheese platter with gluten-free crackers and dried fruit.

Beverage Options for Gluten-Free Guests

It’s essential to have options for gluten-free beverages as well. Instead of just offering water, consider serving gluten-free beer and cider or cocktails made with gluten-free alcohol options such as rum, tequila, and vodka. You can also serve non-alcoholic beverages like fresh fruit juices, lemonades, and iced teas.
