A WEDDING TO REMEMBER!

We just completed catering a very unique Wedding Reception at The Children’s Museum of Phoenix.  The couple couldn’t narrow down the menu after tasting lots of Eat Me Specialties!  So we recommended a series of Themed Stations where the guests could get Tasting-Sized Portions of several different foods.  We offered a Salad Station with our […]

PORK CALABRESE

thanksgiving essay a href=”http://eatmegourmetcatering.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/pork-chop-calabrese.jpg”>I first tasted this sandwich in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at a place called Elsa’s on the Park. Their specialty sandwiches are referred to as “Pork Chop Sandwiches”.  My favorite is the Calabrese.  When we designed the Eat Me version, we started with a pork loin roast.  I slice 1/2 inch slices, pound them […]

ANOTHER CHICAGO SPECIALTY

By now, it is pretty well known that we nail authentic Chicago-Style food and flavors better than anyone in Scottsdale.  But as a caterer, we are constantly searching for ways to acquaint our clients with Chicago-flavored versions of familiar menu items.  That’s why, we decided to offer these which closely capture the flavor and texture […]

SUMMER SOUPS

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not big on chilled soups!  But I am a soup guy and our clients love our soups.  So, I started experimenting with the classic chilled soups…Gazpacho and Vichyssoise. For Gazpacho, I recall a most memorable version at Thomas Keller’s French Laundry in the Napa Valley.  It was impeccable and oh […]

OH CANADA!!!

analytical essays a href=”http://eatmegourmetcatering.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/canadian-flag.jpg”>We got a call a few weeks ago from a Canadian gentleman to ask about Eat Me preparing Dinner for his group of 12 who were coming to Scottsdale for a 7 day golf vacation.  Unfortunately, the week he was interested in was already booked pretty heavily and we told him that.  […]

REHEARSAL DINNER

We’ve catered every aspect of Weddings, from Engagement Parties, to Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties, to Bridal Showers,  to Receptions at Brunch, Lunch, and Dinner.  But we’ve never done a Rehearsal Dinner until NOW!  The son of our friends Chris & Meg got married this past weekend in Phoenix and they hired us to do a […]

CORPORATE CATERING

We were fortunate enough to have been selected to cater The Pomeroy Group’s 3 day meeting in Scottsdale.  We wanted to make sure to bring our A Game since they are a very successful Canadian Hospitality company.  Our menus for the 3 day meeting included: LUNCH DAY 1 Salad of mixed Organic field greens in […]

PUMPKIN SOUP

The best Pumpkin Soup I ever tasted was Paul Bocuse’s.  He layers French Gruyere and Heavy Cream inside a hollowed out 2 pound pumpkin, then bakes it for an hour.  It is incredible…silky and extremely rich.  But hollowing out those pumpkins is far too time consuming for a caterer who needs to end up with […]

An Authentic Chicago Favorite Comes to Arizona

Not everyone in Chicago really eats these deep dish pies weighing in at over 2 pounds.  But, I have to admit they taste great.  Light flaky butter-basted  crust filled with sliced fresh mozzarella cheese, sausage, spinach, pepperoni, you name it…topped with crushed San Marzano tomatoes and grated parmigiano and pecorino romano. When we moved to […]
