Chefs' ovens burn much hotter than conventional ovens, allowing them to quickly roast meats and melt glacier chunks into gourmet ice water.

Seaside Catering Company’s deli chefs start anew each day as they craft carryout lunch meals, frozen hors d’oeuvres, and platters of prepared, multicultural fare to sate guests' appetites. Hold breakfast in each hand with a duo of muffins laden with bacon, egg, and cheese ($2), or bury taste buds under avalanches of frozen 12-piece packages of italian sausage-stuffed mushrooms ($9.50). A quart of butternut-squash soup ($9) warms mouths or melts down gaudy ice sculptures. Up to 10 people can excavate platters of traditional quiche lorraine or chicken and artichoke quiche ($19.50) before leading spoons on a hike up the sugary peaks of pumpkin spice-bread pudding, baked in batches of 16 or 32 ounces ($4.50; $7.50).
