Catering Central was the team we hired for our Christmas Party in Indian Creek, Redwood Shores. The food was incredibly superb! Marcos prepared a delectable menu per our request for traditional Christmas fare, and we were surprised to discover how truly sumptuous each dish was! Our guests have been raving ever since!
Word also has it that our corporate office has heard of the success of the event brought on by this impressive array of gastronomic delights. Working with Marcos was a bree...
When you’re out at a bar, do you get inspired by the big, ridiculous novelty cocktails you see? Many themed bars in the Bay Area (e.g. Trick Dog and Smuggler’s Cove) serve fun boozy mixes in kitchy vessels, and you can make your own novelty cocktails at home, too! Here are a couple of ideas to get your inspiration flowing:
- Watermelon Keg
Keeping it green (literally) never tasted so good! The watermelon keg is made by hollowing a watermelon, adding a tap, liquidizing the watermelon chunks and mixing it with alcohol. Perfect novelty for a summer party.
- All Kinds of Bacon Cocktails
You thought the bacon craze was done? Well, if you’re into all things salty/sweet, these boozy bacon shakes are for you.
- The Cotton Candy Martini
There’s a guaranteed sugar rush in every sip! If your adult body can handle it, the cotton candy martini will take you back to childhood, while reminding you how old you are.

We particularly love the tip about using honey to make simple syrup. While it’s still sugary, honey boasts some excellent health benefits like antioxidants and allergy support.
Enjoy the chill while you can!
To make up for the hour of sleep you will lose this weekend due to Spring Forward, we’re going to give you some fresh cocktail recipe ideas to keep you partying through your sleepy Sunday. Spring is a celebration of new life, as well as splashes of citrus, berries and cucumbers.
The Kitchn has released a bunch of smashing Spring cocktails, which can be found right here. Try their Margaritas on for size! They have recipes for Spicy-Cool Blood Orange and Strawberry Basil Margaritas, ice cold and ready for you to enjoy.
Harnessing the zesty taste of lemon, the Vieux Carre is an easy cocktail for you to make at home. If you’re into the punchy taste of the Vieux Carre, you’ll be glad to know that once you buy the ingredients, you’ll be able to whip up quite a few of these babies before your bottles run out. Find the recipe here.
For the classic taste of refreshment this Spring, mix up a Mojito. AllRecipes has instructions to make The Real Mojito. Packed with minty-lime tones, the Mojito offers a base from which you can make all kinds of flavored drinks.
Mixing up cocktails at home might take some extra effort, and mean buying extra ingredients, but you’ll find in the long run it’s more cost effective than buying them at bars. Also, you’ll never feel so cool as when you’re shaking up a fancy mix for your friends.
Client Holiday Party Success!!

We use Marcos and Catering Central for 100+ person company lunches every so often, and our employees always have good things to say! Marcos does a consistently quality job, on-time, and the price is right. We have ordered something different every time, and it's all been good. If you have a group to feed, they will work with you from menu selection through billing, definitely recommend!
Company Event is a Success!!
I've had Catering Central do two events here at Tesla. Marcos went above and beyond to make sure that both of my events were a success. His food also matched their excellent service throughout the whole planning - from picking out the menu, to working with our budget, to the day of the event and even afterwards. Enzo also was very professional and was on top of things on the day of.
I can't wait to use them again for other events.

Quality Food and Service!
Came across Catering Central website while looking for caterers to bring lunch to our office every week. Our employees are typically very picky but Marcos' meets or exceeds our expectations every time. Everything is always fresh and hot. We only have about 40 or less employees but the portions are generous and it's nice to have friendly people delivering who make sure we are satisfied with our order. I highly recommend Catering Central for any event!
