Why Food takeaways have replaced ‘serve yourself’ at parties

Many Nigerian celebrations have their roots in funfilled ceremonies with delicious food. Whether it is at a wedding, a birthday, a housewarming, or a launch party, among other events, visitors patiently await the food, especially at buffets where you serve yourself in the hopes of stuffing yourself silly.Infomation Guide Nigeria

The lack of buffets at celebrations is a result of homeowners and celebrants cutting expenditures due to the ongoing increase in food prices.

He said: “To prepare food varieties accompanied with desserts and drinks for 50 guests as a buffet would cost N500,000 but a takeaway of rice, chicken and plantain with meat and fish costs N2,000 per plate and N100,000 for 50 guests.

“Many people now order takeaways at events. This is because prices of foodstuffs are rising daily and money is not easy to come by these days.

“Guests have different appetites for food. Some eat much while some eat a little. Sometimes the meal is not enough for the number of guests as some complaint of not eating.

“What some hosts, who still want to preserve the buffet tradition do in parties now, is that they appoint two to four people at the meal stand who serve the meal to each guest.

“As a guest, you don’t have any option than to accept whatever you are served.

“However, many party hosts pack the takeaways in bags accompanied with drinks for each guest to avoid serving one person twice.

Mrs Aisha Afolabi, a banker, said even at corporate events, some hosts cut down to serving only breakfast (tea and snacks), sometimes only water.

She said: “It is not only in informal ceremonies that people have stopped this serveyourself thing. Even in corporate organisations, where you serve yourself and then go home with expensive gifts,  spending has been down on.

“They now serve food and drinks as takeaways. Sometimes the drinks might be water or soft drink. Some just serve only water.

“If they don’t do that, how will they address other expenses knowing the state of things in the country and around the globe?”

Samson Adegboyega, a civil servant, said: “I was served takeaway food and drinks in all the parties I attended this year. Even the one that offered a buffet, it was the waiters that served everyone. Two different food were made, unlike before when you would eat and go back to fill your plate with another.

“When I complained, my wife opened my eyes to the fact that people were managing themselves as things, especially food items, are getting expensive each day.

“It is only God that is sustaining many businesses and households this period.”
