Smokin' Dave's BBQ & Clambakes
My goal at David's Catering, is to provide my customers with fine, generously
portioned food, as well as professional and personalized service at
a reasonable fee. I am available for whatever occasion you can dream
up, from Weddings, Showers, Bachelorette Parties, Bachelor Parties,
Clambakes and Barbecues. Interactive Culinary Instruction is also available
for small to medium Dinner gatherings. I might add that the interactive
instruction is informative, as it is entertaining. Guests, or if you
will, Students, will receive Mock Diplomas if requested by Host, perfect
as a gift or a night out. I arrive in full Chef Whites and Hat for all
costs down, I prefer to serve buffet style utilizing my own decorative
chafing dishes, and high quality paper and/or plastic ware. I generally
prepare a center piece and garnish for the buffet table, at the same
time utilizing decorative table coverings. Making your buffet table
look attractive is always a priority. I believe people also eat with
their eyes, so as well as food tasting delicious, it must also look
so. I offer menus to suit each and every budget. If you wish me to utilize
your own China and Silverware, that would not be a problem, as long
as it were for a small gathering. I am available to prepare for anywhere
from 2 to 250 people. For intimate or small gatherings of 2 – 30, there
would be an additional, reasonable, minimum labor fee included, of which
I could discuss with you in further detail if you are interested in
such an event. Generally I limit home parties to 75 guests, unless the
home is equipped with some sort of commercial kitchen with ample refrigeration
and preparation space, as well as a larger oven with extra burners.
In function halls with commercial kitchens, or for Clambakes and Barbecues,
I can prepare for up to 250 guests, Buffet Style.
further insure quality, I prepare all foods at the location of the event.
I work quietly, and clean as I go, so the host kitchen always looks
neat. I am a firm advocate for cleanliness and always adhere to strict
sanitation procedures, utilizing sanitary gloves and kitchen approved
disinfectants. Upon request, I can supply Coffee and a simple Dessert,
for an additional fee. Feel free to review page at your leisure, and
call with any questions or concerns you might
We can also arrange and provide entertainment.
If interested, please inquire with Chef David to its regard. As for
clean up, I bring in all of my own cookware, and clean whatever I bring.
I also clean the host kitchen before I leave for the day or night. Thank
you for your interest
in my service, I look forward to booking your event in the near future.

THE ULTIMATE BUSINESS LUNCH!!
Featuring Distinctive on-site
Preparation to ensure the highest degree
Of Quality, Safety and Freshness!!
At your leisure please review the following menus as I am sure your company will benefit by them. All we need to prepare the meals is a kitchen or break room, a stove or oven would be great, but not at all necessary. As long as there is a sink, refrigeration and counter space, we can bring in this unique service.
The following menus not only feature Italian Cuisine but also various cold platters, salads and homemade soups. All the items are prepared on site at your location in a minimal amount of time. The one of many advantages to on-site preparation is the fact that there is no transportation of prepared food involved. Therefore, there is no loss of quality and freshness caused by the transporting of cooked or prepared food products, not to mention safety concerns in regards to keeping cold foods cold
and hot foods hot, which is one of the first things that a Johnson & Wales Culinary student is taught. The hot food comes right out of my sauté pan and into your chafing dish. The cold foods are kept chilled via my insulated coolers. After the preparation, we clean and tidy up to create a service area which will be set up in a decorative fashion. We supply all of the plates, utensils and napkins, utilizing the highest quality disposable products available.
