“Should I order a more traditional menu or something different for my holiday party?” We hear this question a lot during the holiday catering season in Jacksonville, truthfully there is no correct answer. We always tell clients that they know their crowd better then we do, but that being said here are some pointers.
- About 80-90% of holiday parties are some variation of the traditional ham & turkey, mashed potato, stuffing, green bean casserole orders.
- You cant go wrong with chicken, chicken is by far the most ordered protein and with good reason, it provides versatility in catering and is a “safe” choice to feed the masses, try subbing roasted chicken or panko baked chicken in for the turkey after thanksgiving
- Ask your guests! It never hurts to get input from those you are feeding, take an informal poll…. you may get some valuable suggestions.
- Best of both worlds, order up some non-traditional entrees like Ribs (Jacksonville loves BBQ) and blackened tilapia, and then throw in the traditional sides like mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and corn casserole.
Good Luck! Look for our holiday catering menu early next week, alway free delivery to the greater Jacksonville area
