The Captivating Culinary Delights of Saint Germain Catering

Beat The Heat with Saint Germain!

Saint Germain does DC catering, which means we experience the Washington, DC heat like no other in the summer and we thought, seeing that the Summer Solstice was this week, we could focus on foods that keep cool in this scorching heat! So when the mercury rises, here’s what to eat during the summer months.

One way to stay cool is to eat fresh fruits and vegetables with high water content. These include leafy lettuces, corn on the cob, cucumbers, watermelon, and summer squash. All are nutritious and supply a significant amount of water that can help thin the blood, helping your body release heat.

Up for an alternative approach? Try adding more spice to your diet to help cool your body through sweating. Hot peppers, fresh ginger, horseradish, and black pepper would all do the trick. As for preparation, try to focus on fast cooking methods like steaming and quick sautés as opposed to more heat intensive ones.

Saint Germain’s menu also has plenty of options that beat the heat!
