Catering for the Holidays

Our favorite time of the year is the holiday catering season when the chance to gather with friends and family takes center stage. Good food is an essential part of every celebration whether it be an office cocktail party or annual holiday party at home. Our bakers have been busy stocking the larder with Christmas sweet treats like “Pinolate Cookies” and all manner of pumpkin and gingerbread creations. Perfect bite sized morsels are also part of the catering picture along with seasonal family-style platters heaped with goodness…
We’ve designed a series of catering menus of tried and true classics you guests will adore. Make sure to get your order in soon – our last order goes out Dec. 24th, and then it’ll be our turn to celebrate! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
