Maybe your best event catering choice is a personal chef service.
Is the best event catering service for your event, actually a personal chef service? What is the difference?
The best event catering services are typically what you want for large weddings or events for over 100 people. The food is prepped off site in a certified commercial kitchen. You have a right to know where your food is purchased. How it will be stored. Where it will be prepped and cooked. How they will transport it safely. And how they will reheat and hold both hot and cold food during serving.
It’s not something you normally consider but, I would want to know the grade of the commercial kitchen. You can click to check out any Commercial kitchen in San Diego, like restaurants, are inspected and have a grade. If the grade is anything other than “A”, there is an issue with where the food is being prepared. You should know this for the safety of your guests. Food poisoning can be very serious for the elderly, very young and those with weakened immune systems.
Because large quantities of food are being served, things like shrimp, lobster, grilled fish, fillets and chicken tend to get dried out. So San Diego catering companies, typically shy away from these items unless there is a sauce involved. Not a delicate sauce, a SAUCE. Typically these sauces are heavy, creamy sauces which mask overdone entrees. Excellent choices for catering buffet menus include things like baked pasta bars, baked potato bars, soup and salad bars, taco bars, crepe bars and BBQ anything.
