For Chef Nita of OnTime Cafe, chicken and potatoes were staples on the table when she was growing up. Today, she and her staff sauté chicken with kalamata olives and parsley, or peppers and onions to craft tasty, organic, all-natural meals. They'll also lightly fry salmon croquettes or shape turkey sausage into meatballs. Everything is made to be vacuum sealed and delivered to customers, who then can heat up food that is quick and tasty. Entrees include side dishes such as cinnamon sweet potatoes and artichoke hearts. Even for catered meals, desserts are available, which families can use to bribe their imaginary friends into telling who broke Mom's favorite vase.
Light trips across the edge of a steel blade as fingertips guide the knife over a row of colorful vegetables. A sharp crunch follows each chop. Droplets of water fly from the neatly diced plants as a hand carefully transfers them from chopping board to mixing bowl. These hands belong to Chef Tonne, who, for almost a decade, has dreamed up an ever-evolving catering menu of international and American cuisine. Guests can put together a menu that complements their taste and event, from prix fixe party packages that assail diners with relentlessly delicious courses to ? la carte hot and cold appetizers, side dishes, entrees, and desserts for less formal occasions. Wedding guests can nibble on bacon-wrapped sea scallops during the cocktail hour and later dig in to a glazed-blueberry-chicken entree. Each catered event receives complimentary linens and china. Chef Tonne also handles the cooking duties for everyday meals. The company delivers dinners to doorsteps comprised of locally raised meat, wild-caught fish, fresh produce, and minimally processed ingredients.
Eat the World's chefs draw inspiration from Tex-Mex, Cajun, and Italian culinary traditions, among others, to fill coolers with microwaveable meals and table-ready entrees and sides. They assemble roasts such as hams and turducken, fruit salads, and tamales featured by CBS DFW before carefully cooling each dish for maximum portability. Eat the World also brings its entrees to catered events, including birthday parties and mock-trial jury deliberations.
