When it comes to catering, the entrée is the main event. Of course, we include the prelude of appetizers and gorgeous drinks, a few sides to suit everyone’s needs, and delectable desserts to end on a sweet note. However, the main squeeze is the main dish, which should really wow your guests and their palates. Creating an entrée “bar,” with several unique options for guests to create their own individual masterpiece is an exceptionally creative and stunning way to throw a party. See what entrée themes we can offer you.
Who doesn’t love a freshly made sammie? Warm bread, cured and sliced meats, veggies and cheese galore…even hummus and nuts can be piled between two slices of bread. This type of theme makes everyone happy, as they can create their own favorite, as well as a piece of art.
And, it doesn’t even have to be a Tuesday for tacos in this situation! People are crazy for tacos – loco for tacos – these days, and a spread that allows your guests to pile on the cheese and guac is a winner, for sure. Don’t forget our signature salsas, sour cream, and lots of cilantro for the herb lovers in the crowd.
Cobb Salad Bar
Salad bars don’t have to be boring, with the usual lettuce, cucumber, and tomato options. Why not jazz it up a bit with a Cobb Salad theme? Yum! Once the signature dish of the Brown Derby Hotel in the 1930s, this salad is the classiest in the club. Seasoned tomatoes with salt and Romaine lettuce served atop; then carefully arranged bacon, hard-cooked eggs, chicken, avocados, tomatoes and blue cheese in rows on top of the lettuce creates a memorable picture and palate pleasing prescription.
Soup and Chili Bar
Sometimes, particularly this time of year, you and your guests just want to warm up with a hearty bowl of soup! Can you imagine an event where everyone has the option to sip on spoonfuls of hearty, homemade soups? Hands around the edges of warm bowls of goodness, bellies full of warmth and wonder. This is an event to remember, for sure. How many parties have you been to where soup is the main event? Not many – it’s time to get on the bandwagon – and serve up some freshly baked bread while you’re at it!
Baked Potato Bar
Just like with sammies and tacos, guests can be finicky about just exactly they prefer atop their baked spuds. Why not create the option for your guests to put anything and everything together, atop their own personal potato? Sweet potatoes, Yukon Golds, Red Potatoes and Russets alike, beg to be adorned with more than just sour cream and butter. Bacon, onions, salsa, cheese, trail mix, peanut butter, chili, pesto, prosciutto, berries, beans, veggies, and more. The list goes on and on and so do all the pleasantries from the potato popping guests. Everyone loves their own personal potato.
Go beyond the basics when thinking about catering your next event. Let us create a themed main dish “bar” of your choice and serve you with both delicious food and lasting memories.
