Healthy Options

Catering food doesn't have to be so rich and sugary that it leaves you feeling sick afterwards. That sounds more like an inexperienced chef obscuring the flavor rather than the ingredients speaking for themselves. Food should leave you satisfied and feeling good! We recently catered a business luncheon with a spread of healthy options.

Chef Lou catered for a meeting of health care professionals. She wanted to provide healthier food- and smaller portion- options and escape the food coma that sometimes rears it's ugly head after a meal. 

On the Menu

First in line was a choice of two sliders: chunky turkey with cranberry sauce and caramelized onions or warm beef tenderloin with a creamy dill sauce. Each slider was on a whole wheat Kaiser knot with a multi-grain sprinkle.

These rolls were handmade earlier that morning.


 Next in line was one of our newest appetizers: the Southwestern Sweet Potato Cake. This delicious morsel has a warm sweet potato cake topped with black beans, roasted corn, red peppers, and scallions with a dollop of lime creme fraiche and spinach chiffonade. Chef Lou loves to create new and flavorful appetizers!


 Our green salad came next. This salad featured fresh green lettuce, ripe mango chunks, roasted almonds, and bleu cheese with a Mango coconut dressing. The salad was served individually in coconut shells... and we may or may not have had a business man take two halves, clap them together and quote lines from Monty Python and the Holy Grail...

Chef Lou will never serve Ranch dressing with your salad (unless specifically requested). Rather, she prefers to create her own delicious dressings that complement your salad. Whenever possible she tries to make the most out of your food and really bring out the flavors.

 Who says those on a diet can't have dessert? Chef Lou has proved them wrong with this alteration of a Savory classic. We served a quadruple fresh berry mix with fat-free and sugar-free cream. Our berries are always fresh (frozen berries are a dirty word at Savory) and the cream was fresh and chilled. Guests were able to eat and enjoy their entire serving.

One of the benefits of hiring a professional and trained Chef is that you can get menus customized to your wants and needs! Don't settle for less, hire the best.
