Eco Caters, Los Angeles Catering Division goes a little North for a Baby Shower!!
We love to do Weddings and Corporate Events, but when we get called for a Baby Shower, the girls in the kitchen get all excited! Our host was on a tight budget, so our Event Coordinator in the Los Angeles Catering Division worked the numbers as best she could and did a great job. The most economical way we figured was to do a “drop off”. This is when the Head Chef assigned to your event comes in with the food completely prepared and cooked, uses our supplies of chafing dishes, platters, risers, everything for your buffet setup except for the table, the linen, and cutlery. Then they leave. At a predetermined time, the Head Chef then returns and picks up all the dirty items. Transfers the left over food to your containers and gets back on the road. Depending on where you are located, the price of this service varies. You also want to keep in mind what you are serving food wise. Being we are not doing any prep or cooking on site, all the food would have to come prepared to present.
For this particular Baby Shower Party, they chose items from your Los Angeles Caterers Stationary Hors d’oeuvres Menu. This way all throughout the party, the ladies could go up at their leisure for their nibbles. On display we started with Chef’s Pairing Cheese Display, Heirloom Tomato Terrine with Burrata and Fresh Basil, and Farmer’s Market Fruit Display with Local Honey. Moving down the table your Los Angeles Caterers had the Mezze Platter ith Hummus, Baba Ganouj, Roasted Red Peppers, Olives Salad, and Fresh Pita. A great grab was the next item of Tuna Tar Tar in Cucumber Cups with Avocado Oil and Preserve Lemon. The host chose Assorted wraps as well with Roasted Turkey and other being Shaved Market Vegetables with House Aioli and Olivade. To complete the table our Los Angeles Caterer had Mixed Sliders of Curry Chicken with California Golden Raisins, Grilled Eggplant with Tomato, Arugula, and Marjoram, finally Pastrami and Sauerkraut on Pretzel Rolls. Now that is A LOT of food!!
Dessert was left on the hosts platters by our Los Angeles Caterer. This way they can be served at the convenience of the guests. They chose Chocolate Dipped Strawberries and Pumpkin & Spice Chocolate Tart.
