Caterer - High School Graduation Party

cocoa puff Mar 6, 2011 09:15 AM

Any suggestions for a caterer in the Burlington area? Nothing too creative, just delicious but somewhat generic - to please the palates of the majority. I'm thinking of barbecue but am open to anything. Thanks!!!!

    Blue Ribbon BBQ does catering, delivers and sets up the buffet. For a little more, they provide servers to serve/replenish/clean up. http://blueribbonbbq.com/catering/ser...

          This past December I was searching and searching for a caterer for a small dinner party and somehow came across South End Chef (www.southendchef.com). She was so reasonably priced that we ended up giving her a try and it was the best choice ever. She has done two events for me - the small dinner party (7 people - 5-course meal) and just recently a large party for 40-50 people with "heavy hors d'ouerves" that were enough to stuff even the most ravenous guests. Her food is incredibly good, her prices reasonable, and she is a joy to work with. I hesitate to even put this out there because I'm worried she'll get so busy I won't be able to book her, but she is worth every reasonable cent she charges (and she traveled to Canton for our party so travel to Burlington seems within her range).

          Menu for 40-50 person party:
          Assortment of Flatbreads:
          Margherita
          Roasted Squash, Sage, Prosciutto, Dried Cranberries
          Rosemary Roasted Potatoes and Creamy Lemon Sauce

          Cheese and Cracker Platter
          Seasonal Fruit , Foccaccia, Artisanal Crackers, Brie, Cheddar, Bleu, Goat, Grape and Bleu Cheese Truffles, Spiced Nuts
          Caramelized Onion and Gruyere Tartlets


          Eggrolls
          “Chicken Pot Pie”- Roasted Chicken, Carrot and Celery
          Country Gravy Dipping Sauce
          Asian Veggie- Sprouts, Snow Peas, Carrots, Peppers and Rice
          Spicy Orange Chili Sauce

          Old Bay Potato Chips and Crab Dip
          Warm Home Made Chips with Chesapeake Bay Crab Dip

          Ropas Viejas Sliders
          Slow Cooked Beef with Smoky Cumin and Tomato Broth

          Stuffed Cremini Mushrooms
          Spicy Turkey Sausage, Sage, Golden Raisins

          Roasted Shrimp
          Sweet and Smoky Romesco Dipping Sauce
