Anyone who has ever been lucky enough to cook Thanksgiving dinner understands just how much time and preparation is involved. Sure, conquering the iconic Thanksgiving turkey is a feat in and of itself. However, the typical Thanksgiving meal consists of a great deal of side dishes and desserts. Everything that touches the table on Thanksgiving dinner requires hard work and dedication. Nearly 50 million turkeys will be consumed this year on Thanksgiving. Thankfully, Eatible Delights Catering can make sure you don’t have to spend the whole day slaving away in the kitchen. This year, Eatible Delights Catering is offering holiday catering and preparing full Thanksgiving meals.
Thanksgiving is ultimately about spending time with loved ones and being thankful for the many joys in life. However, the Thanksgiving meal is just about as big as the holiday itself. Unfortunately, the person hosting Thanksgiving is often left in the kitchen while everyone else is spending time with one another. Eatible Delights Catering wants all of their customers to be able to spend the holidays focusing on things more important than cooking. This year, Eatible Delights is preoparing a Thanksgiving Day feast that will blow guests away. A minimum of twenty guests is required and the dinner is $27 per person.
The Thanksgiving Day menu includes roast turkey with a delicious sage stuffing. For those who aren’t fans of the big bird, a top round roast beef with mushroom gravy is included. Plus, a variety of gourmet side dishes come standard with the Thanksgiving Day meal. Of course, the meal also comes with enough bread, assorted rolls, and various beverages for everyone. To finish the whole thing off is a dessert selection of carrot cake, pound cake, and cookies.

The fall is a beautiful time of year. The vibrant colors of the trees and foliage create breathtaking landscapes. The cool temperatures inspire a style of comfort cooking not seen during the summer and spring months. Every October, restaurants and coffee shops around the country begin offering pumpkin flavored treats. Certain foods and beverages have become somewhat of a fall staple. For example, the pumpkin flavored lattes are an American favorite. However, pumpkin is making its way into everything from potato chips and pasta to chocolate and brownies. With the overpowering presence of pumpkin as an ingredient in the fall months, Eatable Delights catering began to wonder if people truly love the taste of pumpkins.
There is no debating that pumpkin inspired foods sell in the fall. However, is it really the flavor of pumpkin that people are craving? How many people are jumping at the chance to eat the remains of pumpkins after a Halloween carving session? The truth is pumpkin flavored foods really encompass ingredients that many people enjoy all year round. In fact, most pumpkin flavored food items have little or no actual pumpkin at all. The pumpkin flavoring that Americans have grown to love is typically composed of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, vanilla, and a touch of salt.
Some people may feel violated and others not so surprised about the lack of actual pumpkin in these autumn goodies. However, the end result is that most of us love the flavors that accompany the fall and we should embrace the creativity that comes with the season. Eatible Delights have been catering in Bucks County for years and they love seasonally inspired menus. Whether someone is looking for wedding catering in Philadelphia or another catered occasion, Eatible Delights is happy to help make any event unforgettable.

The summer of 2013 is almost over, but we can’t welcome the fall season until one last celebration takes place. Labor Day weekend is probably one of the most bittersweet holidays in America. What once started as a holiday celebrating the economic contributions of the working class and laborers, has now become a final send-off to the summer season. Nowadays, most people are unaware of the origins of Labor Day from its introduction in 1894. However, Labor Day is celebrated by vacationing, hosting parties, and barbequing. Yes, barbequing and Labor Day are about as good of a combination as apple pie and ice cream. Oh, and apple pie and ice cream are certainly welcome at Labor Day barbeques.

History buffs and tourists love visiting the city of Philadelphia. The city of brotherly love spawned our nation’s Declaration of Independence. Furthermore, Philadelphia represented one of the most important cities for early national economic growth. In fact, to this day, Philadelphia is the fourth largest economic city in the U.S and the ninth largest in the world. Being that Eatible Delights Catering operates within Philadelphia, they felt it was only appropriate to dedicate a special menu to the great city. Not only does Philadelphia have a long and rich history in terms of American progression, but Philly has become synonymous with great food.
One of the major misconceptions about Philadelphia cuisine is that it’s all about cheese steaks. Yes, the Philly cheese steak has become a staple for Philadelphians and tourists of the city. However, Philadelphia has become home to some of the finest culinary minds in the world. Boasting chefs like Marc Vetri and restaraunteurs like Steven Starr, Philadelphia has become a feeding ground for foodies all over the country. Long gone are the days where Philly is only good for pretzels, water ice, hoagies, and a cheese steak. The staff at Eatable Delights Catering has designed a dedicated menu to the city of Philadelphia and it features a full spectrum of fine food items.
Now, customers can select from five different Philly themed options for their corporate catering events. The first option is the Liberty Bell option, which features a delicious grilled chicken breast sandwich and a brownie for dessert. The second option is the Independence Hall option and offers a Caesar salad with grilled salmon and pound cake. The William Penn option includes a delicious salad with grilled shrimp, apples, walnuts, and smoked gouda cheese. The fourth option is the Love Park option and features a Philly favorite, roast beef with horseradish. The final option is known as the Rittenhouse Square option and is a fully vegetarian dish. The best part is that all of the special Philly menus are less than $14 per person!

Philadelphia has a long and rich culinary history. Although most people across the United States think of the famous Philly cheese steak when they hear Philadelphia, the city actually has a lot more to offer in terms of food. Eatible Delights Catering is proud to serve the greater Philadelphia area with a variety of delicious food items. Although many of Eatible Delights menu items have been inspired by the Philly food culture, other regional influences have certainly played a role. In fact, Eatible Delights has designed an entire menu based on southern Creole and Cajun cuisine.
Not everyone understands the difference between Creole food and Cajun cooking. Although travelers may find a mix of Creole and Cajun foods throughout the South, Creole is primarily associated with New Orleans. Cajun cooking also finds its roots in Louisiana, but more from the outskirts of the city and in Louisiana’s bayous. Both Creole and Cajun cuisine, offer some of the tastiest food items. Creole and Cajun cooking are both influenced partially by French cuisine along with Southern ingredients.
Creole cooking became increasingly popular through the emergence of New Orleans based chef Emeril Lagasse. Chef Emeril burst onto the television scene with a variety of cooking shows. Prior to Emeril’s successful television career, he was the executive chef at one of New Orleans most famous Creole themed restaurants, Commanders Palace. Now, New Orleans is full of celebrity chefs and fabulous restaurants that feature both Creole and Cajun foods.
Thankfully, foodies don’t have to travel all the way to Louisiana for some authentic Cajun and Creole cooking. Now, customers can call upon Eatible Delights Catering for a full line of Cajun and Creole foods. In fact, Eatible Delights Catering is now featuring a menu that includes items such as: Creole Crab Cakes, Cajun Chicken Pasta, Grilled Shrimp Remoulade, Seafood Gumbo, Blackened Catfish, Sweet Potato Cheesecake, and much more. The next time you get a craving for some great Cajun or Creole cooking, make sure to give Eatible Delights Catering a call.

With corporate catering, you can get high-quality meals for your clients without the fuss of having to leave the office and visiting a restaurant. If you have a major board meeting or sales pitch coming up, consider having the food brought right to your office. The catering company can come in to set up the entire meal before the clients arrive, and some caterers who deal with corporate accounts almost always offer a selection of décor that brings a high-class element to the meal.
Corporate catering is a great way to provide meal options that everyone will love. With a buffet-style breakfast or lunch, you have numerous options which appeal to everyone. In addition, hot and cold stations for the food can be provided. That means eggs, bacon, waffles and pancakes for breakfast, or hot sandwiches and soups for lunch. Other popular food options to include are fresh fruit, mixed salads and dessert trays piled with cookies and brownies.
In addition, corporate catering is great for staff appreciation events, holiday celebrations and special occasion parties to celebrate a staff member’s retirement or anniversary with the company. These periodic investments in treating your staff to a special meal will certainly pay off as they realize that their hard work is valued by the administration.
You can also consider corporate catering for evening events. Many companies have an annual party, for the holidays, a fundraiser or a meeting of shareholders. These formal evening parties deserve the attention of a corporate caterer who is experienced in working in a corporate setting. The caterers recognize that appearance, food quality and great service are all extremely important when it comes to these events, so they are able to provide the best and complete catering services for your affair.

America’s Independence Day is a traditional red, white and blue celebration that usually includes foods with an outdoor flavor followed by bright fireworks at night. Here are some ideas to fuel your 4th of July party food ideas and creativity.
Snacks Before Dinner
Begin by serving finger foods and appetizers. Consider serving black bean dip or salsa to add a spicy start and an appetite. Traditional creamy dips and cut vegetable sticks are also a favorite.
Hosting a barbeque is easy to prepare in advance, and minimal clean-up is required. You can serve hamburgers and season them up by mixing onion or garlic powder into the beef. Another barbeque option is to serve fun and festive kebabs. Use disposable wood or bamboo skewers to grill chunks of chicken, shrimp or beef. Add some flavor by using Steak sauce, Worcestershire sauce or BBQ sauce. Remember to include some side dishes.
For dessert instead of the usual sheet cake decorated to look like the United States flag, serve individual cupcakes and frost them in white. Continue by placing strawberries and blueberries on some. Once decorated place them on a tray in the order of the colors of the flag. Your guests are sure to love them, and no eating utensils are required.
Whatever type of food you decide to serve at your 4th of July party, keeping it simple is always best. Remember that burgers, hot dogs and dips are still the all-time favorites.
Since your 4th of July party will most likely take place outdoors make sure your decorations sparkle and shimmer. Use red, white and blue twinkle lights to dress up trees and bushes. Also use some American flag-themed decorations like flags and balloons.
Make your party even more festive by using star shaped napkins, serving trays and bowls to hold all of your salty snacks and dips. Buy flowers in the colors of the holiday to dress up tables, and add sparkling pinwheels and glow sticks to the arrangements for a fun patriotic touch.
