Off-Premise Catering

Gourmet Home Cuisine will create an event package that includes food, service and equipment. We will come to your home, outdoor environment, catering facility, office, school or community meeting place. Our mobile kitchen and cold/hot storage technology make it possible to cater almost anywhere.

We have a lot of experience. Here’s a short list of the kinds of events we cater throughout the year:

Weddings Baptisms Corporate Functions

Anniversaries Holy Communions Holiday Parties

Engagements Confirmations Wakes & Funeral Repasts

Rehearsal Dinners Bar/Bat Mitzvahs

Showers Luncheons

Birthdays Brunch

Graduations Business Meetings

 

Event formats

 

Your event can take any shape. Our staff will serve your guests in a sit-down or buffet format, or you can opt for a family-style dinner or serve-yourself buffet. If you prefer a “drop-off” event, we will bring everything you need and set it up, so it’s ready for you to serve.

 

Consider these options:

 

  • Sit-down dinner
  • Hot buffet, with or without make-to-order stations
  • Cold buffet
  • Cocktail party – Exclusively hors d’oeuvres, or combined with buffet entrees and dessert
  • Barbecue

 

Menus

 

Meal packages vary depending on individual item selections. Talk to Chef Cron about which items might be most suited to your sit-down meal, hot or cold buffet, cocktail party or barbecue.

Special Event Truck

Food trucks have come a long way since they appeared exclusively at carnivals and construction sites, and as vehicles for selling ice cream. A food truck can be the main attraction, or a cool addition to your catered event, either during or afterward.

Consider how a special event truck, parked outside your indoor venue or as part of your outdoor party, may enhance the guest experience. The concept works best when focused on a single goal – such as offering a “break” between traditional food courses or activities, or as a pick-me-up before the ride home; and when offering one or two items – such as homemade pizza, hotdogs or sliders, fresh-made zeppoli, or donuts and coffee.
