The Captivating Culinary Delights of Saint Germain Catering

December Specials & New Ideas for Holiday Events!

December Specials & New Ideas for Holiday Events!Ham and turkey and cranberry sauce and stuffing and mashed potatoes oh my!!! The holidays are upon us and so are the traditional goodies, but this December, the ingenious minds at Saint Germain Catering have let their creativity flow. The result is an enticing list of fun and festive dishes that offer you a chance to honor the classics, while also rethinking what your holiday menu has to look like. Check out our December catering specials and use the ideas below to transform your upcoming get-together.

Pancake Pajama Party

Maybe it’s all the mulled wine on the menu, but why exactly are all our holiday gatherings scheduled in the evenings? Sure, it’s nice to have the tree lit and the house lights in full twinkle mode as guests arrive, but cozy dinners and cocktail parties put you in direct competition with everybody else, too. Instead, throw a pajama party on a Saturday morning or a Christmas brunch. You can serve up SGC’s Signature Pancakes with plenty of housemade berry preserves and crispy bacon strips as everyone watches How the Grinch Stole Christmas or ward off the chill while you wrap presents with a hearty Virginia Winter Breakfast. The quiche is unforgettable!

Out-of-Season Summer Celebration

It’s barely December, but you’re already tired of cold temps and snowstorm warnings. Treat your guests (and yourself) to a taste of summer with Saint Germain’s Chesapeake Comfort. This clambake-with-a-winter-twist combines locally sourced clams, shrimp, and white fish with bright fennel, herbs, and lemon in a rich, satisfying broth. Add in some sweet potato mash and a grilled kale salad and you have a meal that skillfully straddles the seasons.

Looking for something a little more suite for the landlubbers in your circle? Have your Holiday Cookout catered and you’ll enjoy a filling spread of grilled bratwurst, hamburgers, portabella mushrooms, Chesapeake-spiced parmesan chips, and more. It’s a backyward BBQ you can enjoy on your heated patio or from the comfort of your couch – and it’s perfect for game day, too.

Do-Nothing Dinner Party

It’s been a long year, hasn’t it? You’ve worked hard, and so have all your friends, and you still have several weeks of work and reams of holiday shopping to see to before you even think about settling in for a long winter nap (and by “long” we mean a good 8-10 hours of sleep). Rather than taking the effort to get dressed up and head out to a noisy restaurant or – even worse! – destroy your kitchen with a cavalcade of dirty pots and pans as you rush to whip up dinner yourself, have your dinner party catered. All that’s left to do then is invite a bunch of friends, set out those pretty pillar candles you’ve been saving since last year’s after-Christmas sales, and decide which menu you want to serve. For meat-and-potatoes comfort food we recommend Sleigh Bells Ringing, but if you’re looking for hand-held eats ideal for a tree decorating party, go for the Shiverin’ Slider Trio and Holiday Mini Cupcakes!
