Christmas is almost a season in its own right these days. Maybe it should go autumn, Christmas, winter, spring? Maybe.
We love Christmas for lots of reasons, not least because there’s so much great produce around at this time of year, wonderful traditions to engage & get creative with, and it’s a time to celebrate with family & friends more often than not, around a table or at a party with plenty of food & drinks. Christmas dining can mean all sorts of things; it can encompass anything from the breakfast you serve on Christmas morning or the canapés you serve at your Christmas do with the neighbours to the sumptuous sides to go with the Christmas lunch and the kind of mince pies you like.
Christmas dining has been a big part of our kitchen conversations for a few months now – the nature of our business means we get to start thinking about Christmas dining a bit earlier than most people, and we relish the first mince pie we can legitimately try as part of our ‘research’ (honestly, usually in about June).
Prepping for any kind of Christmas dining can be a really stressful time. It’s also a really busy time of year for everyone with nativity plays to watch, presents to buy & fridges to fill. Unfortunately, as much as we might like to, we can’t help with the nativities or present buying, but fridges we can do!
Work with us to help with all of your Christmas dining needs. Here at Caiger & Co. we have created a wonderful selection of drop off catering menus. These aim to provide you with a Christmas dining solution, whatever your event or requirement. We can always provide a complete event planning & organisation service, but we’re also very happy to offer a ‘build your own’ service, depending on what you need for Christmas dining. Here are just a few suggestions of how we can help with your Christmas dining & planning:
Drop off Christmas canapés (with or without staff)
We will drop off your chosen selection of canapés to your home in good time for your party. We can also provide a selection of gorgeous platters for you to serve the canapés on. We can also provide staff to serve drinks & food if required, or ensure that everything’s left for you to serve your guests yourself.
Fill the fridge (or freezer)
Anything from pre – prepared one pots that you can just put in the oven for those unexpected guests, to ready to go sides to go with your Christmas Day roast. We can complement all of your Christmas dining plans to ensure you don’t need to spend all of your time in the kitchen.
Don’t do desserts
They can be a bit time consuming and an afterthought. If making desserts isn’t the kind of Christmas dining you like to do yourself, why not let us help? We love to get creative with sweet things in the kitchen, and all of these can be easily transported to your home for you to enjoy. This could be a selection of our Christmas bakes e.g mince pies & stollen bites, a decorated Christmas cake or our famous Christmas pudding ice cream. More than just desserts though, we can also create a wonderful cheese cake using truckles of your favourite cheese, along with all of the usual cheese-y accoutrements (Caiger Christmas chutney, crackers & grapes)
Christmas dining is definitely our bag, so talk to us today about how we can help you get out of the kitchen & in to your party. #caigerchristmas
