The holiday season is approaching, and it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to be feeding your family at your next big get-together. You can make it much easier with help from holiday catering in West Hollywood from The Butler Pantry. We’ll work with you to plan a menu and then cook your food for you. If you’ve never considered catering your holiday feast, we have seven great reasons why you should.
1. Avoid busy grocery stores.
Somebody has to buy the food for the feast, which means whoever draws the short straw has to fight crowds and deal with empty shelves. Holiday catering will save you a trip to the grocery store, so you can spend time with family or relax on the couch.
2. Professional-quality food.
Chances are, not everybody in your family is a gourmet chef. Somebody brings something to every holiday meal that doesn’t get eaten unless it’s by somebody who feels obligated to do so. You can eliminate the weakest link in your meal by hiring a caterer to do the cooking for you.
3. Wide variety of food options.
Do you have the same meal every year for Thanksgiving and other holidays? Most people have traditional meals they cook up, and sometimes it’s because people are limited in their cooking abilities. Try mixing it up this year. Holiday catering is a great way to try new dishes without the risk of wasting food from experimentation because a professional is doing the cooking for you.
4. Eliminate prep time.
Somebody or a group of people have to spend hours in the kitchen working hard to prepare a meal for everyone in the house. Yes, it’s a chance for this group to spend time together, but they’re also missing out on time with the rest of the family. What’s more, it’s normal for somebody to lose their appetite after they’ve spent hours cooking food. You can eliminate this time entirely and get out of the pitching by hiring a caterer for your holiday meal.
5. No cleanup.
It’s not common for somebody to jump up from the table at the end of a meal and volunteer to clean up. You won’t have to with catering. The catering team will take care of all the cleanup by wrapping up leftovers and cleaning the dishes. You can rest and relax as your delicious meal starts to digest.
6. Less stress is best.
The more stress you can eliminate from your holiday event, the better off you’ll be. Getting the family together can be difficult enough for everybody as it is. You don’t need to create additional stress by coordinating meals, assigning dishes to bring, and timing out when to use the oven. Sit back and let your caterer do all of that for you. Your holiday will be a much more enjoyable experience.
7. It’s more affordable than you think.
It’s not uncommon to hear the idea of getting a caterer and thinking that it’s out of your budget. However, once you add up all the costs that everyone incurs by buying food and extra dishes to serve it, you’re not far off the cost of a caterer. You won't be spending nearly as much on holiday catering as you originally thought you would.
