Tea Party Catering

posted on January 13th, 2015 by Melinda Race

The Duchess would be proud….. The Duchess is best remembered as the creator of the British meal afternoon tea while visiting the 5th Duke of Rutland at Belvoir Castle in the mid-1840s. Bedford is the county town of Bedfordshire, in the East of England. It is the administrative center for the wider Borough of Bedford. During the 18th century, dinner came to be served later and later in the day until, by the early 19th century, the normal time was between 7:00 and 8:30 p.m. An extra meal called luncheon had been created to fill the midday gap between breakfast and dinner, but as this new meal was very light, the long afternoon with no refreshment at all left people feeling hungry. She found a light meal of tea (usually Darjeeling) and cakes or sandwiches was the perfect balance. The Duchess found taking an afternoon snack to be such a perfect refreshment that she soon began inviting her friends to join her. Afternoon tea was quickly adopted by many middle and upper class… Read More

We cannot stop time! Father Time will be turning a page in his calendar again and a New Year will soon be upon us. With the Christmas holiday just two days away, it's never too early to start your New Year's Eve planning as it will be here before you know it. Our Catering teams are here to lend a helping hand in your party preparations.   As you may know, New Year's Eve is a major social holiday for many people in the United States. Many people hold parties at home or attend special celebrations ring in the upcoming New Year. In many cities, large scale public events are held. These often attract thousands of people.  A particularly special known celebration of the New Year's Eve festivities is the ball drop in Times Square in Manhattan, New York City. The ball is made of crystal and electric lights and is placed on top of a pole, which is 77 feet, or 23 meters, high. At one minute before midnight on December 31, the ball is lowered slowly down the pole. It comes to rest at… Read More

Tips for Holiday Entertaining

posted on December 8th, 2014 by Melinda Race

Holiday entertaining comes in all shapes and forms, and while the elaborate celebrations can be a fun change of pace, there’s so much more to seasonal entertaining than those “Big Show” evenings. In fact, the first images that pop in my mind when I hear “holiday entertaining” are intricately styled buffet tables or gold sparkling everything. I also see smaller gatherings with close friends and family in a comfortable and festive environment, including great conversation, good wine, and some holiday platters. This kind of gathering is very manageable amidst crazy holiday schedules and can even come together in the form of an impromptu idea.  That is why I am really excited to share our menu with you and let you know we can make it simple, beautiful, and yummy!   Platters of crudité, fresh fruit baskets, European cheese platters, eight layer dips, and an international satay platter are a small selection of what we can do.  So, if you need to take one item to the… Read More

Super Bowl Catering

posted on January 30th, 2014 by Melinda Race

The sound of Peyton Manning barking "Omaha! Omaha!" is picked up by a tiny microphone in an offensive lineman's pads so it can be broadcast to the world.  In an age of enormous high-definition televisions and games streamed to tablets and smartphones, audio seems almost quaint. Yet TV executives have made it a major focus in recent years, for the exact reason so many people are fascinated by the Broncos quarterback's audibles.   Immediately after the Seahawks game, what great excitement as the microphone is put up to a players mouth while the body is full of adrenaline from a great play a moment earlier.   It is all so exciting and times have changed.  Americans are obsessed with football and who can blame them? That same excitement come with the foods we pick to celebrate this great American sports. We just  love good food, fun competition and family enjoying the Super Bowl....and let’s not forget the half time show and the great commercials!   Bristol Farms Catering is… Read More
