Make yours a food-forward holiday party

November 12, 2023Lauren Windle

Lots of companies throw holiday parties. So it takes a little something extra to go above and beyond to create a truly memorable experience.

The best holiday festivities are lively, colorful and offer something a little different. That’s why Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering is often tapped to provide a food-forward event with emphasis on big taste, variety and …a sustainable footprint.

From large corporations to smaller local organizations, we are hired because of our A+ 20-year reputation and increasingly, for our farm-to-table, sustainable, organic, locally sourced foods. Invitees and businesses want to know the holiday event they are throwing is as responsible as it is fun!

One of our favorite recent holiday parties was upscale and festive. Guests arrived for cocktails and beautiful décor, underscored by low key lighting and a 5-piece orchestra playing in the background.

Our bartender served two special holiday concoctions, one alcoholic, and another – just as festive – a mocktail. Indiana red and white wines were also available as well as two popular beers, both locally brewed.

Jacquie’s team set out :

Three Layer Pesto Torte with Goat Cheese, Sundried Tomatoes, Fresh Basil Pesto and Pine Nuts with Crackers.

Bourbon Chicken Skewers and
Mini Cuban Sandwiches were also offered.
We offered a vegan option as well, Morbier Grilled Cheese with Tomato Jam Mushrooms Stuffed with Parmesan.

For dinner, we made sure our beef and cheese selections were sourced from Indiana farms:

  • Barbeque Beef Boneless Short Ribs with Molasses Bourbon Sauce
  • Cedar Planked Salmon
  • Bow Tie Pasta with Arugula, Goat Cheese

Rounding out the meal, was:

  • Mixed Organic Field Greens with Pecans, Cranberries, Goat Cheese and Champagne Dressing
  • Garlic Mashed Potatoes
  • Wood Grilled Vegetables with Herb de Provence and Balsamic

Jacquie’s team ended the evening on a sweet note, offering an irresistible dessert station filled with everyone’s favorites:

  • Chocolate Covered Strawberries
  • Creme Brule in a martini glass
  • Mini Cheesecakes
  • S’mores in a Ball Jar

We also made sure to include recycling bins and as few single-use goods as possible. The result was a beautifully prepared and presented holiday party, which everyone – from the staff to the party-goers, could feel good about!
