Delicious! CateringCaterer in San Rafael, California
A Crazy End to the 2017 Summer Season!
We all know the beauty of late summer weather in the Bay Area. With that in mind, it is not a surprise how many of life’s celebrations many people choose to have this time of year. In September, we catered 8 weddings, 7 life cycle events, 6 Jewish holiday events, 5 non-profit events, and 4 events as benefits, staff appreciation, award dinners, or fundraiser. All totaled over 2,600 people fed at our events, plus 5,300 packaged snack bo...xes and burritos for Byte foods, and over 3,500 school lunches for La Scuola and Lycee Francais de San Francisco. Doing the math, that is 11,400 meals in 30 days, or 380 meals per day, phew! Although, there is a temptation to close up shop and take a few days off, the craziness continues into October. Wow. For as tired as we may be, we are mostly invigorated by the adrenaline of being part of so many lives.
Amid all these events, there are a few that especially remind us of what makes a month like this so special. For example, we were honored to be chosen to cater the Bar Mitzvah celebration for the young man for which whom we did his Baby Naming celebration 13 years ago! (Maybe we can also do his wedding in a decade or two!) Plus, the treasured privilege of how many families that have included us in their Jewish holiday celebrations for an unknown number of years. Our computer system, that started in 1995, does not account for the events we celebrated with them prior to our digital age!
Thank you to all who have included us in your celebrations and remembrances! We look forward to many more.

Going Deep Green
We believe in doing everything in our power (pun, intended) to protect our earth and its valuable resources. It has been 10 years since we became Marin County’s first Green catering company. At that time we signed up for PG&E’s Light Green 50% renewable energy service. Today we are still the only Green catering company in Marin and our commitment has become stronger.
Now we have committed to PG&E’s Deep Green 100% Renewable Energy program through the Ma...rin Clean Energy system. All of the power we buy for our business comes from 100% non-polluting, Green-e Energy certified resources. Green-e Energy certified resources include wind and solar power produced in California. It is a very affordable step for us and we are pleased to contribute to the development of new, local renewable energy projects. Thank you, MCE Clean Energy, for giving us the opportunity to help our local community and the whole world!
And the secret is. . .
According to the Marin IJ Readers’ Choice Awards 2017, we are Marin County’s Best Caterer ! This is certainly an honor as we know there are many, many wonderful catering companies in the county. Thank you to all who voted for us.
Founded in 1975 (yes folks, that is 42 years ago), Delicious! Catering has been a part of special events for thousands of people in Marin County and throughout the Bay Area. We have multi-generational ties with families cel...ebrating the full circle of life’s special moments; from births to Bar Mitzvahs then to weddings, mile stone anniversaries, and (sadly) Celebrations of Life. It is a unique privilege to be included in so many of our communities’ special occasions.
We are also strongly connected to many businesses and corporations in the county, thereby providing food for many hard working employees. Leftovers are often donated to shelters and other organizations that provide services for our marginalized and homeless populations. We have been honored to touch so many lives.
Today’s newspaper has a special section devoted to all of the winners of the Marin IJ contest. When you are out getting your morning caffeine fix at your neighborhood coffee shop, please pick up a copy!
What a nice surprise to see Eddie and Vicky's wedding featured on Borrowed and Blue. Leigh Rafkin was the planner, and she said this couple was great fun to work with. The Landmark Art and Garden Center was the perfect setting for their garden inspired wedding.

At Delicious we love the excitement of creating Global Cuisine as you like it. One of our greatest pleasures (and sometimes challenges) is making sure we personalize each menu for every event. This often includes developing new recipes or honoring family traditions for a cross cultural client base.
A great example of this is when we had the honor of catering Ana and Jean-Cleaude’s African themed wedding at Geneva Terrace in San Anselmo. The menu included: Small Spoons wit...h Black Eyed Pea Salad, Domoda (Gambian Beef Stew), African Style Tilapia, Garlicky Greens, and Roasted Vegetables. It was a beautiful celebration. We were successful in adding a Delicious! touch to traditional foods. You can see photos and learn more about this celebration at http://munaluchibridal.com/ana-jean-claudes-beautiful-pan-…/.
Each of our clients has their own vision and hope of what will make their event special. We strive to accomplish making those special moments happen. Please consider us whether you want an All American Barbeque, A Russian-Chinese cross cultural menu, a classic Matzo Ball Soup, a Mediterranean Cuisine Buffet or something new for your next event.
