  • The New (Home) Dinner Delivery for Corporate Events

    10/31/2020 in Menus

    2020 has proven to be the year of adapting. When our client, Cynthia, asked us what we could to to make her annual event happen, amid the covid regulations, we developed a new service that would work!

    We completely understand the importance of upholding yearly traditions, events, and annual award ceremonies. With the stress of 2020, it's even more essential (pun-intended) to show appreciation to your team, clients, and friends.

    The new service that we have developed, is a multi-course meal that is delivered directly to the client with ready-to-eat instructions. For a dinner, the menu could feature a tray of appetizers, mason jar salads, a ready-to-reheat entree with detailed instructions, and a decadent dessert! Pricing for this service is based on event details such as: guest count, menu items, delivery process, and packaging. We have even seen how clients take it a step further and have all of the "guests" join a zoom call together to celebrate awards and live music! We just love how the industry has come together to adapt in order to keep moving and uphold traditions!

    View the menu and some photos of our first Home Dinner Delivery below:

  • Thanksgiving and Holiday Reheat and Serve Menu

    10/31/2020 in Menus

  • Simply Southern Low Country Boil

    09/09/2019 in Menus

    Are you looking for a true southern meal to treat your guests to? Have you run out of ideas for your rehearsal dinner? Want to get everyone from the office OUT of the office for a fun evening? A Low Country Boil is the perfect meal.

    Our French Cuisine Trained Chef from England turned a bit southern when he met his wife, Terry. Upon moving to the Carolinas, they started their catering business in 1997. Since then, Andrew has added a southern flair to his French-Cuisine Chef training - and wow what a combination! 

    Our Low Country Boil consists of Shell-on Shrimp (or already peeled for an upcharge), New Potatoes, Corn-on-the-Cob, Smoked Sausage, Celery & Onions, and is served with a Fresh Garden Salad, Green Bean Almondine (or your favorite vegetable of choice), Southern Cornbread and Jalapeno Cornbread, and washed down with Sweet & Unsweet Tea. You can bulk up your boil with freshly steamed Crab Legs, Clams, Scallops, and/or Mussels. Many clients add on tender Grilled Chicken for the friends that don't love county boils as much as we do! 

    While we are writing of this delicious spread of coastal menu.. Make sure to check out our Build Your Own Raw Bar. What a spread! Choose five from the following: Snow Crab Legs, Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail, Scallops on the Half Shell, Mussels in the Shell, Oyster on Half Shell, Oyster Shooters, Little Neck Clams, Peel & Eat Shrimp, Tuna Tartar, and Smoked Salmon. 

    My mouth is watering just listing those menus off, Mmmm! Don't forget to pair your Coastal Menu with a delicious signature drink. Some North Carolina Crafts Beers & Bloody Marys sould like a great addition to me! What would you add?

  • Brunch is always a good idea.

    We think brunch doesn't get the credit it deserves. It shouldn't only be restricted to Sundays, we should brunch every day of the week! It's a relaxing time to just chat with family and friends and enjoy lots of delicious food and drinks, and don't forget the mimosas! We offer a Brunch menu that you can see here, or we can come up with a menu just for your crew! 

    The above photos are from our styled shoot with Amani Affairs at the River Room in Wilmington. This is a perfect location for a lovely brunch along the Wilmington Riverfront. Whether gathering your family and friends before or after your wedding, having a ladies day out, taking a break from a company retreat, or just simply enjoying each other's company, a brunch is always a perfect menu choice!

  • Vegan or Vegetarian?

    05/25/2017 in Menus


    We believe that vegan and vegetarian meals should be just as delicious as the main entrée!  Our owner and Chef, Andrew Bland, loves cooking a homemade curry. It is one of his personal favorite vegan meals and an item he loves to prepare. The mixture of fresh ingredients creates a flavorful aroma and a delicious meal, even for those meat lovers.

    We have a Vegetarian Menu available on our website; you can view by following this link:  However, just like any of our menus, please do not feel obligated to order straight from the menu. If there is an entrée or side dish that you absolutely love but do not see on our menu, just ask! Chef Andrew makes new dishes all the time, and loves to do so!


    Enjoy some photos of some of our favorite vegan and vegetarian dishes:
