Our Fall Harvest Catering Menu

What?!  Fall is around the corner? Already?

Don’t worry, we have the regularly scheduled San Francisco Indian Summer to enjoy first. Plus, we’re offering new fall catering specials to overlap with this late summer weather!  With amazing seasonal produce from both summer and fall to celebrate (crisp local apples are rolling in, juicy tomatoes are still going strong), we’re calling this our “Harvest” Peak of the Season menu.

Our new Fall Harvest Menu is available for orders! A few highlights:

Focaccia Flatbread with Figs, Caramelized Onions, Ricotta, Feta and Fresh Thyme

Savory Tartlets with Caramelized Apple, Bacon, Onions and Goat Cheese

Rancho Gordo Bean and Quinoa Salad with Roasted Poblano Peppers, Cumin and Smoked Tomato Vinaigrette

Mini Ciabatta Sandwiches with Tomato Marmalade, Basil, Arugula and Farmer’s Cheese

Whether it’s a family gathering, picnic in the park, or a dinner with friends, our platters are perfect for any event you want to make a little easier on yourself.  You can pick up at the store, or we can deliver right to your doorstep.  And, as always, if you need more than just food, we can also provide full-service catering with custom menus, all your needed rentals, full bar, and charming staff who are dedicated to serving your guests as if they were our own.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or want guidance planning an event!

 


Early Summer 2012 Catering Menu

Fire up that grill, pick up a bottle of crisp white wine, some chicken or beef in one of our butchers’ amazing marinades, and round out your backyard party with some of our new early summer catering platters.

Melons,  stone fruit, cucumbers, the first of the season corn…summer has started here at Bi-Rite, and it’s time to celebrate it!

Some of my favorite new platters on our summer catering menu are: 

Cucumber Cups with Grilled Wild Salmon, Shaved Radish, Lime and Cilantro

Corn and Tomato Salad with Cucumbers, Peppers, Red Onions, Herbs and Red Wine Vinaigrette

New Catering Dishes that Put the Exotic into Spring Eating

Pasta Primavera with Asparagus, English Peas, Confit of Spring Garlic and Fresh Mint

When our chefs gave us a sneak peak taste of the dishes on our new spring catering menu, I was blown away by the vibrant flavors that almost had me tasting the earth the ingredients grew out of! The menu’s anchored in produce like grilled asparagus and favas, and may be our most exotic yet from the Moroccan Carrot and Snap Pea Salad with Charmoula Vinaigrette to the Mojo-Marinated Grilled Pork Tenderloin Skewers.

Moroccan Carrot and Snap Pea Salad with Charmoula Vinaigrette

“We have a diverse community and we want to reflect that diversity in our menu,” says Chef Eddy.

Chef Linh seconds that sentiment: “To be able to highlight different cuisines is fun not only for our kitchen, but also fun for the guests.”

Want to know my personal favorites from our new menu?

Savory Tartlets with Fava Bean Puree, Lemon, and Pecorino

Jamon Serrano Rolls with Grilled Asparagus and Parmigiano-Reggiano

Roasted Cauliflower Agrodolce with Currants, Fried Shallots and Anchovy

Creamsicle Cupcakes (yellow cupcake with orange and vanilla buttercream) from Bi-Rite Creamery 

Check out our full Peak of the Season Menu, and give us a call (415-241-9760 x 1) if you want to brainstorm an upcoming event together!

Enjoy!
