Hanukkah gatherings and Christmas parties are right around the corner. For many of us, it’s been a while since we’ve hosted holiday affairs at home or the office, so it’s understandable if we’re a bit out of practice when it comes to creating a menu, laying in provisions, looking up recipes and cooking a meal for more than the usual number around the table.
RSVP Catering, one of the region’s premier catering services, is here to help with all of that by not only gathering the grub and cooking it but also delivering it to your door.
Family, friends and colleagues at work will appreciate the effort you made (ha!) by ordering an elegant and tradition-bound Hanukkah Prix Fixe dinner or a festive and warming meal from RSVP’s Christmas Prix Fixe menu.
Let’s start with Hanukkah: The meal begins with matzo ball soup and continues with caramelized onion brisket, surrounded by potato and scallion latkes, and maple-sherry glazed carrots and roasted brussels. Not enough? Let’s add cinnamon and golden noodle kugel, a not-too-sweet traditional dish of egg noodles and golden raisins that you never were going to get around to making.
The RSVP Hanukkah prix fixe dinner for six is $220. Traditional Hanukkah deserts, including chocolate gelt thumbprint cookies and Nutella rugelach, among others, are delivered by the dozen at an additional $28.
As for Christmas, having an entire meal for six delivered is as easy as filling out the online form and waiting for the doorbell to ring. Offerings include a seasonal surf-and-turf of roasted tenderloin with spicy dill mustard and horseradish aioli and lump crab cakes with a smoked onion remoulade. Those are paired with a crisp winter green bean salad, maple-sherry glazed carrots, garlic mashed potatoes, and homemade challah and sweet potato biscuits.
A Christmas dinner for six is $300. Optional desserts include a traditional Yule log in chocolate or gingerbread and a half pound of pretzel and peppermint bark.
Get those orders in, December’s holidays — and all that entails — are coming up fast!
