Indiana produce is growing like gangbusters this year. And as one of a very few Indiana caters that uses locally-sourced produce, Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering is thrilled!
We want you and your guests to have a full spring garden of freshness for your palate – all beautifully presented. Jacquie’s team pays attention to what’s in season, and use fresh herbs and veggies, often preparing them in real Indiana cream and butter.
With that in mind, it’s a pleasure to work with our Indiana farm partners to prepare lots of light, fresh, sustainable, and tasty foods. This summer we’ll be using a ton of Indiana-grown:
- Corn, peppers and tomatoes
- Watermelon, cantaloupe and melons
- Cucumbers and zucchini
- Peppers, cabbage,
- Kale, salad greens and spinach
- Potatoes, onions, garlic, and herbs.
Each and very entrée, appetizer, salad, side dish, and dessert we serve is custom made-to-order with wholesome, natural, sustainable, and fresh ingredients. That means as much as possible sustainably raised and harvested – and native to local farms – including eggs, dairy, Indiana-raised pork, chicken, turkey, and beef.
We are careful to source meats only from farms who employ humane farming practices, such as free-range poultry farming and antibiotic-free, Indiana grass-fed cows and pigs. No factory-farm models in our system. Animals raised in humane conditions are happier and healthier, which is also important to us.
Of course, we are happy to offer vegetarian options as well as gluten and sugar-free. Just ask us. We want to accommodate every palate.
When you cater with Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering, you get super-fresh food and help support local Indiana farmers. That’s very important to us, and we’re pretty sure our clients feel the same way.
