LOCALLY-GROWN – SUSTAINABLE SEASONAL CUISINE
At Joshua Charles Catering we are particularly choosey about the quality and source of the ingredients we use to create our catered event menus. This is true whether we are catering a Bay Area cocktail party or a wedding for 400, a corporate VIP event or an 80th birthday party.
We take pride in sourcing our produce and meats from local, organic producers who employ sustainable growing and harvesting practices. With strong relationships with local growers, we are always in the know about what is in season, when and stay on top of local growing variations in seasonality year over year.
We love getting highly creative with our wedding, private party and corporate event recipes and menus so that your guests receive an exceptional culinary experience. After the fourth time you hear “who did you use to cater this?”, you’ll know why our high standards for culinary excellence is what we are best known for.
The hubby and I went to JCC’s winter tasting event this evening. Wow, what breadth! Seriously, Josh’s range is phenomenal: we tasted arctic char, sturgeon, venison, rabbit… and those were just the appetizers! For the buffet, we had beet salad, lamb chops, brisket, cauliflower medley, anchovies/artichoke crostini, and sea bass…
And listing the main ingredients doesn’t even do the tasting menu justice. The truth is, I have no idea what secret flavor crystals Josh and his team are mixing together in the kitchen; all I know is, each morsel that emerges is a packet of culinary magic.
My absolute favorite tonight? Spoonfuls of rabbit atop the creamiest polenta ever. Delicious! And everything is so damn fresh– where is he sourcing his food??!
Finally, I’m pleased to report I saw some familiar faces tonight (JCC catered a huge work event for me last fall). His servers are extremely attentive and professional. Simply put, JCC is top-notch all around.
