Long Island Kosher Bakery

I've purchased several kosher dairy birthday cakes from the Waldbaums in Oceanside. They make all sorts of pictures on them - you can bring one in. Price is very reasonable and the cake is decent.

Any updates? I just heard that they've closed their catering as well...?

Double wrapping and the hapless kosher guest

Yes - we're in Manhattan and so it's a fairly frequent request and the restaurants and hotels are fairly sophisticated with the presentation.

Double wrapping and the hapless kosher guest

Here's a caterer chiming in - and you're all right - it is a problem! The nicest solution is to offer a room-temperature meal on china. This can simply be wrapped with a clear saran, sealed with kosher tape - not a lot of packaging and easily removed. If china isn't in the budget, then on the nice "faux china" ivory disposables

For those times when a hot meal is requested - we put in an 8" aluminum pan, double-wrap with aluminum and recommend that the venue present the heated meal to the client and then replate tableside onto either china or "faux china" for the client, using disposable serving utensils.

Your thoughts?

Planning a Kosher Wedding In Manhattan

Much of the cost of the wedding is determined by the venue. A caterer can often provide just the food, china/flatware/stemware and kitchen team with Mashgiach and the venue can then provide the waitstaff/bartenders and even a kosher bar.

The menu-only price for a Cocktail with passed hors d'oeuvres, several stations and then a 3-course plated meal usualy ranges from $50.00 to 80.00, depending on your caterer. Disclaimer - I work for a kosher catering company (OU Supervision) and our prices are in the middle/upper part of that range.
