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

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“We want to take a moment to celebrate all the employees who worked on the front lines during unprecedented times. Your efforts and dedication to going above and beyond are noticed and appreciated. Thank you for being the heart and soul of CulinArt Group. We couldn’t do this without you. Chef Jay and Chef Paul have been so awesome in the Hubbell Café.  There has been significant change, but they take it in stride and keep the delicious food coming.  We truly appreciate them!”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“Thank You! Chef Budd [and team], you overcame a new online ordering system (and hundreds of labels daily!), provided creative and healthy menus, continued to connect with local farmers to incorporate locally sourced ingredients, and worked tirelessly to serve the school community on three campuses.  While it feels like you are all a little like the Wizard of Oz right now, working behind a curtain in a kitchen far away, we sense your smiles and your passion to deliver the best possible service during these trying times. We are all so grateful!”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”

“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.”

“Thanks so much for a great week of food here at SCH to start off 2021. Everything has been fantastic. The kids were loving the Chinese food and boxes today. The Moo Shu Pork was amazing. Great work!”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“The roasted tofu/noodle/edamame arugula salad with cabbage, carrots and red peppers was something that I would buy from a restaurant or food truck without question. It would win best school lunch in the U.S. without a doubt if there was such a competition! The textures and flavors were a perfect blend, tied together by an excellent dressing. I don't think anyone would be mad if that popped up on the menu every week. Thanks again to you and your staff for such high-quality food!”
