The reception: What is bowl food?" width="976" height="549">
Bowl food is somewhere between a canape and a main meal.
The 600 guests joining Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for their wedding reception will be enjoying a selection of savoury and sweet canapes, champagne (of course) and "bowl food". Trendy and attractive bowls of food - often healthy and colourful - have been around for a while, often photographed on Instagram.But now "bowl food" is becoming a popular choice for large catered events.
What is it
The idea behind a bowl food menu is so guests can stay standing up and mingle while they eat. It has been described by caterers as an option which allows guests to "keep on talking". Although for elderly guests - including 96-year-old Prince Philip who had a hip replacement last month - presumably a seat may be offered.

According to BBC Good Food, bowl food dishes which might work well could be Thai curry with rice, sausages and mash, or risotto.For the royal lunchtime reception, the bowl food part of the menu included:
Fricassee of free range chicken with morel mushrooms and young leeks
pea and mint risotto with pea shoots, truffle oil and parmesan crisps
10-hour slow roasted Windsor pork belly with apple compote and crackling
All the ingredients have been sourced from companies holding a royal warrant.
What has the reaction been like?
"Bowl food is awful. It's like something out of Oliver," said English interior designer Nicky Haslam earlier this week, when he found out the royal wedding plans - although it is not known if he was attending. "It's the most awful thing in the whole world."Fortunately, his strong reaction seems to be the exception.Many people responded with confusion, asking what exactly bowl food is.
