Serve Farm-Fresh Food to Your Guests with Season to Taste Catering

By S. Mathur

The farm to table trend has finally met up with events catering, so that guests at events like weddings, parties, and corporate events can enjoy seasonal food that is locally sourced. Season to Taste Catering offers special Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah Meals as well, for those who are too busy to cook but would like to feed their families healthy and delicious food for the holidays.

What makes the food so different, Owner and Chef Robert Harris explains, is that "Season to Taste Catering specializes in using ingredients that are responsibly sourced with an eye to seasonality, quality and minimizing environmental impact. Locally-grown produce and meats simply taste better and look more beautiful than anything trucked into the Boston area from across the country."

It's all about the food, says Harris, and Season to Taste partners with small family farmers and growers around New England: "We work directly with our farmers, creameries, meat & seafood purveyors and cheesemakers to create customized menus showcasing local produce and meats at the height of their season. There are so many excellent farms, dairies, cheesemakers and of course, local seafood in Massachusetts that are committed to sustainable practices - we are lucky to work with such outstanding ingredients!"

Fresh food, creative recipes and chefs who have the special touch all add up to produce to a dining experience that guests remember for a long time. Menus are planned together with clients and tastings are offered before the event. Menu choices are seasonal and are built around fresh vegetables, meats and seafood. Unusual offerings such as the heirloom tomato bar, and appetizers like Indian dosas and Korean bibimbap are popular choices with guests.

Entrees might include a Long Island Duck Duet, which features five-spice duck breast with dried apricot and sage and confit leg or thigh with apricot chutney, or Northeast Family Farms Lamb Trios which has Za'atar-crusted rack of lamb with mint-pecan pesto, pomegranate-braised lamb shoulder and Syrian-spiced sausage with feta and Walla Walla onions. Pork Trios include buttermilk-brined pork loin with herb pistou balsamic, braised pork belly and fennel sausage. Season to Taste has a liquor license and serves drinks and cocktails as well.

For Season to Taste fans who can't wait till the next wedding, there's The Table, which used to be a private dinning room space, and is now a full service restaurant. As well as weddings, Season to Taste caters private and corporate events, lunches and even school catering, adds Harris, "We serve both formal plated dinners, buffet style as well as Family Style, which is a more social and intimate experience for dinner guests." As a true catering service, Season to Taste also has a pick up menu for people who want to enjoy high quality meals every day.

The concern with sustainability extends beyond the event, and leftovers are packed for clients to take home, or delivered to a homeless shelter on request.
