CATERER FOR TAMPa ST. PETERSBURG SARASOTA to FORT MYERS
Milan Catering offers delicious catering menus for Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota and S. Florida events. Our menus are contemporary cuisines that focus on fresh, locally sourced ingredients, eye appeal and depths of flavors. The key to our delicious menus is guided by our professional chefs who create complimentary flavor profiles for each menu item, customize the catering style to maximize food presentation (Guest Choice Tableside, Family style, Walking Receptions) and then cook on-site to deliver delicious culinary masterpieces served at the right temperature. Our chefs take advantage of locally sourced and organic ingredients to enhance the underlying flavors.
We offer Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-free, and Kid-friendly menus. We love ethnic and cultural menus that reflect the event or wedding theme, so if you don't see your favorite dish listed, please ask our chefs to create it.
PICKING A CATERER
Fundementally, the cooking style is different in off-premise catering. A restaurant cook plates up individual orders and delivers it in minutes. With that mindset, they will cook the entire catering menu at the kitchen and deliver it in a box that sits for hours before service (think buffets). Because we are only off-premise caterers, our menus are designed with a delayed delivery concept in mind. Every menu item is finished by our professional chefs who cook on-site in our restaurant grade ovens. So every menu item stays delicious and creates that memorable guest experience.
DROP AND RUN CATERING
Drop and run catering is food served at room temperature for hours. Hmmm.. nothing comes to mind that you would want to serve? Even worse, you or a "volunteer" must figure out how to set out the food, when it is safe to do so, how long it can stay out, and who is going to clean up. If you are doing this, who is taking care of your guests?
Once you have found your venue, have a general idea of guest count and a date, please call or email us to create your unique menu. Our Executive Chef will talk to you about your vision, favorite foods and style to create your perfect event.
