Appetizers

You could make a meal from our appetizers! And sometimes people do. There’s plenty of variety. How much to order depends on your intended usage. For grazing with cocktails and no other foods, figure 10-12 pieces per guest. When using appetizers as true appetizers, figure 4-6 pieces per guest.

Hot Appetizers

Cold Garnished Fresh Salad Molds

When your menu includes salads among your appetizers, you may roughly translate salads to “pieces”. Figure approximately 8 “appetizer pieces” per pound of salad.

Decorative Cold Platters

Homemade Soups

Soups are an important part of traditional Eastern European cookery. True to our heritage, we still make ours from scratch. In the old days, soup and bread would make a meal. Today, smaller portions often precede the main course. For larger portions, figure 2 people per quart; for normal portions 3 people per quart; that’s 10-12 people per gallon.

Emergency Chicken Soup Supply Kit

Pour a piping hot treat from Ben’s marvelous new disposable container. Equally at home in the office or at a football game, the kit includes hot cups, soup spoons, and napkins.

Breads

Salads

We offer a wide variety of both side salads and green salads, all made on premises using fresh, seasonal ingredients. When ordering leafy green salads with a meal, we figure 4 ounces per guest. For other salads, often used as side dishes, the quantity to order depends on the total number of salads and side dishes ordered. The more variety ordered, the less you need of each dish, though you should have enough of each item to accommodate all of your guests. Need assistance? Please call!
