If you’ve considered Thanksgiving catering, chances are you abandoned the notion as quickly as it occurred to you. After all, isn’t spending days prepping and cooking for this important holiday meal an age-old tradition?
However, as strange as it might sound, you could have a more enjoyable and authentic Thanksgiving dinner when you use the services of a catering company. In fact, you can enjoy a traditional holiday dinner with your guests even if you don’t slave over the stove all day yourself.
Maybe you’re hesitant to consider the idea of serving your holiday guests a feast that someone else prepared. But what if they never had to know you didn’t do all the work yourself? Covert catering can make your Thanksgiving meal a breeze and your guests never need to know it wasn’t you who pulled it all together.
How Does Covert Catering Work?
Caterers often have clients who want to take advantage of their services, but they don’t necessarily want their guests to know they had help in creating the perfect holiday meal.
Enter covert catering.
Your caterer can prepare all the basics of your meal and deliver the food to you, ready to heat and serve. All you have to do is add some finishing touches and serve up your movable feast. You can reheat your side dishes and place them in a serving bowl, as though you handled the entire process yourself.
Likewise, you can reheat the turkey and keep it warm in a low oven. Then, when the time comes, pull the bird out, carve it up and serve.
Will Covert Thanksgiving Catering Work for You?
Many would-be customers shy away from working with a catering company for their holiday meals, fearing that a professionally prepared feast might exceed their budget.
You might be surprised to discover just how cost-effective Thanksgiving catering can be, especially when you consider the time and effort you invest in shopping and prepping the food.
But what about those leftovers your family looks forward to after the main event? You can have those too. Simply tell your caterer that you’d like a little extra of everything and they will make sure to work that into your menu.
Of course, you don’t have to keep it a secret if you don’t want to. Your family and guests will appreciate the extra time they have to spend with you, since you won’t be holed away in the kitchen, slaving over the stove.
You can even skip the bulk of the cleanup if you prefer. Your caterer can provide disposable plates, flatware and everything you need for an elegant feast without any of the cleanup. And, best of all, no crusty pots and pans to deal with.
