Weddings !!!





New England Crab Cakes
(with a flare)

It's that time of year again...The holidays are just around the corner, family and friends are gathering...And weddings are being planned!  Please check out our website heirloomcateringlocalfood.com for menu ideas and additional photographs of our food. We have packages for you to look at as well as a la carte pricing for customized menus...Just send a quote request today. We primarily offer farm to table menus, which allows us to make a variety of abundant vegetarian and vegan menus as well as offer grass-fed beef and sustainably produced chicken and dairy. Yes, we have a concentration in local and organic but that doesn't mean you can't ask for our delicious portobello mushrooms (shown below) or our irresistible crab cakes for example.  If you have a budget in mind or want to go all out no matter the cost, don't be afraid to tell us (it helps in the planning)... We will be honest about the best plan of action to bring your vision to life!


Balsamic Glazed Portobello Mushrooms
(this dish is vegan, but would leave any mushroom loving meat eater very satisfied) 

What dip would you want in the middle?
(Caramelized Onion Hummus, Olive Tapenade, Creamy Pesto, Vegan White Bean Aioli )
Local Cheese, Glazed Organic Nuts, Local Cured Meats, and Heirloom Tomatoes
(waiting to round out our stationary feast appetizer table)







Wedding at Hyland Orchard and Brewery in Sturbridge, MA



Thankful the rain held out for this open sided pavilion wedding...We set the tent for a 4 p.m. start. Guests arrived by car and shuttle... And quickly moved into enjoying yard games, appetizers, and local hand crafted beer. The meal was vegetarian and highly concentrated in farm to table ingredients.  

Local Heirloom Tomatoes, Artisan Cheese from Vermont and Massachusetts,  Plump Berries, Purple "green" Beans, Carrots and Cucumbers all from Connecticut River Valley farms, and local specialty products such as Strawberry Rhubarb Jam and Heirloom Apple Chutney (by Bug Hill Farm) graced the appetizer picnic table.  The wedding dinner was served buffet style and also focused on local farm fresh vegetables. Heirloom Tomato and Caramelized Corn Salad, Leek and Herb Rice, Pesto Pasta and Vegetables, Tofu with Peanut Sauce, and a simple Green Salad with Woodstar Bread.   

We served Pierce Brother's Coffee and Mapleline Cream to accompany the homemade desserts by the bride and cupcakes from Cafe Indigo.  The band played rocking music and the bar kept the beer flowing until 10.  We cleaned up quickly as the stars came out and the night's chill rode in. Wonderful people, food and drinks!

Event for a small group of our lovely clients :)


Local, Organic and made from scratch with Love! We most often roast and glaze the nuts on own own starting with high quality raw organic nuts, but if not, we opt. for the delicious organic nuts pictured above. Locally produced cheese, sausage, crackers, onions, and herbs are such a treat in February.  This meal was accompanied by Organic Spring Pea with Local Mint and Cream and Our Special Croutons (made from locally crafted bread). As well as Local Greens Salad and our Lemon Garlic Chicken. Thank you Steve for all that did to make this happen :) ... And to all the folks at the Greenfield Co-op (Kimmie you rock!) --->  http://www.greenfieldsmarket.coop/

Next blog update will include our finds from the Verrado Farmer's Market just outside of Phoenix, AZ.
