Tips for the Holiday Season

The holiday season is approaching! Time to enjoy family, friends, some relaxation, and good food. Check out these tips to help you stay mindful and enjoy the holidays to the fullest.

  • Do a clean sweep: Think of this as spring cleaning, but winter edition. Clearing out your refrigerator and pantry will help make room for all of the holiday meals and treats.
  • Reflect: Take a moment to soak up the joyful feelings so you can fully appreciate the good company and food. Take a minute to think about how you feel before you start eating and practice some mindful eating techniques.
  • Unplug: Try eating your meals at a table with no technology – phones away and TV off. Try to take everything in, take advantage of the time with your family and friends, and savor all the flavors.
  • Prepare: If you are hosting a meal, create a menu and shopping list in advance to help coordinate and organize the cooking and prepping.
  • Take a Look: Assess all of the food options before filling your plate. Make sure all of your favorite dishes have room on your plate.
  • Appreciate Leftovers: Enjoy your holiday meal to the fullest, but don’t forget, you can enjoy it again the next day! Package up any leftover food to store in the fridge or send home with your guests. This allows you to eat to your hearts content, without feeling the need to over stuff yourself with all the yummy food.
  • Save the Best for Last: End your meal with your favorite dish. This will leave you feeling satisfied, happy, and content with your meal.

What our clients are saying

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”

“I would like to thank you and your staff for helping to make our Annual Holiday Party a Great Success.  You did an Amazing job from the décor, the food and the service you provided! I have heard nothing but great comments. As always, I enjoyed working with you and your team.”

“Thank You for once again going above and beyond to ensure that our programs are a success. Your willingness to customize menus as well as provide your expert guidance to develop a well-rounded selection of offerings is what keeps us coming back! The food is always exceptional! Our programs would not be a success without the CulinArt team!”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”
