Gourmet Caterers knows that May and June bring many opportunities to celebrate with your family and friends. We want to be the one you think of for Catering Orange County. Celebrations always include food in my family, how about yours? We love to eat food, good food and plenty of it. Maybe some Appetizers, or a BBQ, a Brunch, or even a Dessert Party. We can choose from Italian foods or maybe we should be adventurous and try Indian Food. I have to say my all time favorite is Mexican Food.
How many of you have a Graduate that is finishing High School or College? Now is the time to start planning for that event. My Niece is graduating from High School on June 1st. Her celebration will be held a few days later. I am very proud of her accomplishments and her upcoming admission to UCSD. I wish her congratulations and Best wishes for a Successful future.
Later on this summer, my Cousin is getting married. This too will be a family celebration. and yes, more eating. Family, celebration and food all go together hand in hand. Weddings are a wonderful time to get friends and family together to experience the love and commitment to the future the couple are making.
What celebrations are happening in your family? Or with your friends? Please share them with us on our FaceBook page.
Have a wonderful week and remember Gourmet Caterers would love to help you and yours celebrate your milestones.
Gourmet Caterers joined four other Orange County Caterers at the Laura’s House fundraiser, Under the Tuscan Sun, held last Saturday, May 7 at the Giracci Vineyards and Farms in Silverado Canyon. It could not have been a nicer day. Laura’s House was able to raise over $15,000 at the fundraiser. Congratulations to Laura’s House!
We served a couple of our new Appetizers, Antipasto Skewers and Pesto Fontina Tartlets. The beautiful and tasteful presentation stayed with in the Tuscan theme. All of the guests enjoyed the tasty appetizers we served.
The Giracci Vineyards is a beautiful venue. I looked around and could see how beautiful a Wedding caterer, such as Gourmet Caterers, could create the Wedding and reception of any Bride’s dreams. I also could imagine how great a Corporate event would be if it was held at this venue. I think the combination of Team Building, Food, and Wine Tasting would create such a successful event.
When planning your next event, be sure and call us at Gourmet Caterers, and we will be happy to assist you in planning your next event at Giracci Vineyards or another Orange County venue. We look forward to speaking with you soon.
The appetizer buffet at the LeWinter Memorial, held in Corona del Mar yesterday was accented by a beautiful floral arrangement created by Gourmet Caterers using flowers from Mayesh Wholesale Flowers. Beautiful white roses accented with a touch of red gave the needed punch to a classy appetizer buffet.
The buffet set up consisted of black linens, accented by silver fabric, using glass platters and elevations to complete the look. The appetizers were a great hit. The guests especially enjoyed the Chicken Pinwheels and Ahi Tuna on a sesame chip. All of the guests gathered were pleased with the food and enjoyed spending time with family and friends.

Gourmet Caterers does this with ease and confidence. We have been doing Bris’es for years, and this is one of our specialties. Although a Bris can usually only be organized at the last minute, as many babies have Jaundice , this can be planned before hand, by determining how many guests you will probably have, and the time of day most suitable to you and the Mohel, and of course the menu, and the venue. Then a simple call to let us know when the Mother has given birth, and as many days notice as possible is how this is usually done. Gourmet Caterers did an outstanding Bris for 80 guests in a beautiful home in . It was at 6pm, so therefore dinner time. We served platters of beautifully decorated Cold Cuts and an assortment of breads and rolls. Freshly made Chopped liver served with horseradish. Sweet Noodle kugel with peaches, pineapple, nuts and cream cheese. For the more savoury pallet, we had a Thai chicken salad, Mushroom Strudel, grilled vegetable kebabs, Summer Garden Tortellini with corn and fresh basil salad, a mixed green salad and a Caprice Salad. Dessert was chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting , key lime tartlets and a delicious Carrot Cake
