Thanksgiving Turkey Catering for Company Parties

by Regina 12. October 2012 04:24

This post is specifically for our Corporate customers who may need turkey catering for their office parties, but don't worry, another blog will come soon for those of you who only need catering for your home.

I want you first to take a deep breath. Whether you are planning for a group of 20 or for 200, planning for your office's Thanksgiving party can be overwhelming, to say the least. You might have been asking yourself, "Where do I even start?" Well, I'm glad you landed on this blog post -- this is a great place to start!

Not only are we able to cater the meal itself (with turkey and other fixings) but we're originally a bakery (going on 32 years now!) and will be baking some amazing desserts for this holiday. But let's start with the meal first.

For convenience, we've organized our meal into a package that serves 15-18 people. This way you can order as many or as little packages as you need. For a group of only 15? One package is perfect. Group of 150? Order 10 packages!

--Turkeys right out of the oven for a corporate event last year--

Each package includes:

  • 16lb+ whole turkey
  • homemade cornbread stuffing
  • handmashed potatoes
  • made-from-scratch gravy

That was the easy part. Now, the bigger your party, the more people you'll have to try to satisfy. Maybe there are some who are opposed to turkey, but like ham -- so we offer a Honeyed Ham served with our own homemade pineapple sauce. Maybe you have some vegetarians in the group? No problem, we have several vegetarian dishes to choose from including a Vegetable Tofu Plate and vegetarian pastas. Are we concerned about added some greens to the meal? We can add Sauteed Vegetables or salad on the side. What about some carbs? We also make fabulous dinner rolls, available in white or wheat.

And this is important: our food comes HOT AND READY TO EAT. A customer last year told me she once ordered turkey catering from another company and when she picked it up at lunch time, it was COLD! Not only will our meal be delivered hot (free delivery within 1-mile!), you can also request to have it pre-carved for only $10 more.

Whatever your needs are, we'll try to accomodate. Still feeling overwhelmed? Feel free to put the pressure on us. Give our Catering Manager a call and just specify the bare minimum: date and time of party, how many guests and any special requests (such as vegetarian dishes required) and we'll take care of it! Our Catering Managers will put together a customized menu for you and work with you until you are completely satisfied with what will be served this Thanksgiving.

On to my favorite part: the desserts! Because Pumpkin Pies are pretty much a must-have at Thanksgiving lunch or dinner, we offer a special on our Pumpkin Pies when you order the Turkey Package: 2 for $19.99. At an original price of $13.25 each, that's nearly a buy one get one half off deal.

But maybe you'll want a variety and that we can also help with. We bake a couple other pies: Apple, Cherry, Pecan, Chocolate Cream and Banana Cream (my personal favorite). All of our pies are baked from scratch, without the use of any artificial flavors or preservatives. That's what I love about our pies - made fresh with the everyday ingredients you can find in your grandma's kitchen.

Outside of pies we make a great Pumpkin Cheesecake, Pumpkin Cake, and we also tweak our Pablo Tarts to be a little bit more festive:

Thanksgiving Meal Made Easy For You - One Stop for Meal and Dessert

by Regina 1. November 2011 03:24

Happy November! Can you believe that it's November already? We are only weeks away from Thanksgiving and before we know it, it'll be the new year. I blame the crazy weather we are having in the Bay Area. Don't get me wrong, I love blue skies and warm temperatures, but I feel a little cheated by the return of fall. It has creeped up on us.

So while the temperatures might suggest otherwise, don't forget that arguably one of the biggest dinners of the year is almost here. Thanksgiving is my all-time favorite holiday. Each year my family hosts, and it's always so heart-warming to see my extended family crowded around our much-to-small dinner table. It's always overflowing with food, sometimes so that we have to hold our plates while we eat. But for some, Thanksgiving brings headaches, hassles and anxieties over serving something delicious and large enough for the party (those of us who cook know that sometimes these two ideas don't go hand-in-hand). Thankfully, this is something I don't have to worry about, and neither should you.

Perfect for both a corporate event or for your family meal at home, our Thanksgiving Catering package covers all the bases for your lunch or dinner, plus we offer anything else you may need: dinner rolls, bread loaves, PIES, cakes and more.

Let's start with the main meal first. Each Turkey Dinner includes a turkey that is at the very least 16 pounds,  homemade cornbread stuffing, hand-mashed potatoes and gravy made from scratch. Serving about 15-18 people, this complete meal is less than $7 per person.

Popular add-ons we also offer include:
Honey-Cured Ham (natural juice, pure muscle) with homemade honey pineapple sauce
Dinner Rolls by the dozen, available in white and wheat
Sauteed Vegetables
All other items on our regular Cafe menu, including pastas, salads and our Vegetable Tofu Plate

And of course we offer a whole variety of dessert for Thanksgiving, the most popular being our homemade, made-from-scratch pies. If you order the Thanksgiving Catering package, we offer our phenomenal Pumpkin Pies at a discounted price of $19.95 for two. Unlike other bakeries, supermarkets and alike, our pies are all-natural and pure, with no preservatives, no additives and no artificial flavors. We also bake Apple, Cherry, Pecan, Chocolate Cream and Banana Cream pies in the same manner.

So as you can see, Thanksgiving Dinner can really be quite easy. The dinner comes hot and ready to serve, and you only need to make one stop for both meal and dessert. The only thing we do ask is that you call to place your order in advance - we won't have any extras on the day of (Yes! We ARE open on Thanksgiving Day). Actually, quantities are limited so if you're interested, make sure to speak to a Catering Manager ASAP. 

-- We can pre-carve the whole turkey for only $10 extra --

Considering Turkey Catering for a corporate event? Not a problem. We've catered our Turkey Dinner for 15 to 200 people in the past. Packages are available for pick-up or delivery the week before Thanksgiving too, in case your office won't be open the week of. Call our Santa Clara (408-986-8388) or Fremont (510-252-1098) stores and speak to a Catering Manager.
