A Taste Of Love This Valentine’s Day

Stacy Robertson

Is food the one true language of love?

Like most holidays, Valentine’s Day can mean something different for everyone. While flowers and chocolates might have taken center stage in the past, that certainly isn’t the case for everyone.

Though we might be slightly biased, our belief is that food is a love language. Even if it’s just about showing yourself love by treating yourself to something you normally wouldn’t eat. As such, whether you love Valentine’s Day or hate it, we have a recipe (or two…) that will sweeten up your night.

Valentine's Day Love Heart Shaped Cookies

There’s a reason that some people claim that the way to their heart is through their stomachs. A satisfying meal will leave you feeling like your best self, and isn’t that what love is all about?

So what if you aren’t a master chef?

Catering by Michaels would be honored to play the role of Cupid this Valentine’s Day.

There are enough stresses and worries that goes into preparing for this day (including the refusal to acknowledge it altogether, for some!), so outsourcing your time in the kitchen will help you to concentrate on the ones you love most.

Regardless of if you’re spending an intimate night with your beau, or throwing “anti-Valentine” party, we can craft and deliver a perfect meal for either occasion.

Yom Kippur: The Ultimate Post-Fast Feast

Yom Kippur: The Ultimate Post-Fast Feast

Catering By Michaels

Yom Kippur, marking the day of God’s forgiveness, is one of the most important holidays on the Hebcal Jewish Calendar. It closes the “Ten Days of Repentance”, which started with Rosh Hashanah.

The holiday literally translates as “Day of Atonement”, as the faithful ask forgiveness for their sins in the past year and blessing as they begin the New Year.

Yom Kippur, part of the High Holidays, is characterized by fasting and feasting as the members of the community strengthen their bonds. Because the months of the Jewish Calendar follow the lunar cycle, Yom Kippur is not held on the same day of the civic calendar every year, though it usually occurs between September and October.

This year (2017) it will begin Friday, September 29 and ends the evening of September 30.

The feasting starts the day before Yom Kippur, with everyone eating and drinking in abundance. On this day, two celebratory meals are consumed: one early in the day and another moments before the onset of Yom Kippur, as the holiday’s central component is in fact fasting.

Because the fasting period lasts for a little more than 25 hours, after the Erev Yom Kippur meal until the following evening, those who are too feeble, sick, or young to safely fast are not required to do so. However, healthy females from the age of 12 and males from the age of 13 must fast as part of the tradition. Those well enough to do so often add a few minutes to the beginning and end of the day of fasting, which is known as tosefet Yom Kippur.

Now that Mother’s Day is over, it’s time to give Dad’s day the attention it deserves. Last year, we shared a Father’s Day menu that we catered for the holiday. This year, we’re serving up another special menu we created just for Father’s Day, along with a shrimp pico de gallo recipe that Dad is sure to love — and you can make anytime!

BOURBON MAPLE SMASH

Bourbon, maple syrup, fresh orange juice,
angostura bitters, sparkling water, orange garnish.

SOUTHWESTERN SHRIMP PICO DE GALLO 

Baby shrimp, avocado, onion, tomato and cilantro,
served with homemade 
lime yellow corn tortilla chips.

MINIATURE SIRLOIN & SLAW SANDWICHES

Marinated sirloin, wasabi mayonnaise, sesame slaw
and red cabbage on a miniature pretzel round.

SMOKED GOUDA MACARONI & CHEESE

Cavatappi noodles tossed with smoked Gouda cheese sauce,

and baked until golden brown.

ROCKY ROAD COOKIES

Our Bourbon Maple Smash drink is perfect for the Dad that enjoys the finer things in life, but appreciates a new take on an old classic. We’re willing to bet that even the most Bourbon-averse person at the party won’t be able to resist a sip.

Celebrating Passover

Catering By Michaels

We love catering Jewish holidays and celebrations, like Hanukkah, Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur.

This year, Passover begins on Tuesday, April 11th. The eight-day festival is a commemoration of the Jewish people’s freedom from slavery in Egypt. Food is especially important in the observance of this holiday. When the Jewish people left Egypt, they didn’t have time to wait for their bread to rise, so they ate unleavened bread. That is why matzo is eaten during Passover.

Catering by Michaels’ Passover menu includes unique takes on traditional matzah such as Apple Matzo Kugel, Matzo Crusted Mozzarella Sticks, and Honey Pecan Matzo-crusted Chicken. Of course, everyone’s favorite Matzo Ball Soup is also available.
