Dining al fresco with family and friends is something that most people find enjoyable during the summer months. However, depending on the number of guests, the prep work can be time consuming. If you find yourself in such a situation, why not make use of our Berkeley catering service? It’s a great, no-fuss way to provide your loved ones with healthy foods.
Consider starting the event off with one or both of our party platters. Each one serves up to 10 guests. The Mediterranean Vegan Platter consists of nutritious pitas, dolmas, baba ghannouj and hummus. Your guests will unquestionably appreciate the flavorful foods for their vitamin and mineral density. The baba ghannouj alone provides such essential nutrients as vitamins B, A and C as well as potassium. The dish’s potassium content is exceptionally beneficial for guests that plan on engaging in party activities like beach volleyball and swimming. That’s because over the years studies have shown that our bodies tend to need more potassium during the warmer months.
Our other party platter is comprised of tabouleh, mashweeya, dolma, a Jericho salad and a cucumber yogurt salad. Your guests are apt to find all of them refreshing and nourishing as well. Consider serving it with chilled water, yogurt drinks or herbal teas. If you do decide to go with the yogurt drinks, they’ll undoubtedly help to boost your guests’ calcium levels and improve their gastric health.
From there, you may want to surprise your guests with wholesome, rotisserie chicken or a stuffed, whole oven-roasted lamb. Depending on your order, the entrees may serve up to 35 people. We also offer various size side dishes like hand rolled, stuffed grape leaves and jasmine rice trays adored with toasted almonds and parsley. Each entree and side dish is expertly prepared and lean. So your guests will be able to keep their daily fat intakes in check.
Afterward, end the party on a satisfying, sweet note by serving one of our nut filled baklavas. One is made with walnuts and the other contains pistachios. Both nuts are known to be heart healthy. The walnuts are also said to help prevent type 2 diabetes.
