Callahan’s Catering fuels fiestas with painstakingly prepared, ready-to-eat deli fare. Chefs compose box lunches and platters of party nibbles ideal for baby showers, boardroom meetings, and attempts to lure a chef out of the crawlspace. Boxes open to reveal whole-wheat bread clinging to black-forest ham and swiss ($6.50) or croissants proffering beef tenderloin cloaked in horseradish sauce ($9). Avocado and toasted almonds peek from mesclun greens in the Mandarin spring salad ($7.50), and fresh cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, and strawberries throw a jubilee with cottage cheese in a square enclosure ($7.50). Each selection must be ordered in at least triplicate.
Fetes brighten with finger foods that range from a board of imported cheeses ($3 per person; $20 for a 10-person board) to a ceviche that blends shrimp, tomato, black olives, and avocado ($3 per person; $30 for a 10-person platter). Callahan’s Catering needs 48-hour notice to prepare an order and seal every box or platter with a kiss, hug, and instructions on proper table manners. The caterer donates a portion of all proceeds to the Colon Cancer Prevention Project.
