If you are hosting a barbecue or cocktails and hours d’ouvres with friends – I highly recommend Jerusalem Caterers on Mount Pleasant Aveue in Livingston, NJ. It is a kosher caterer that calls its delectable delights “contemporary vegetarian cuisine.
When I walked in to pick up my order for the first time, I was overwhlemed by the size and selection of foods. Everything is homemade using all natural ingredients.The food displays looked so fresh and tasty my mouth literally watered.
Based upon a friend’s suggestion, I had ordered the Mideast Delight Platter for a luncheon I was hosting and it turned out to be a big hit. For this platter you get to choose 7 varieties of salads and dips that is accompanied by an entire platter of fresh pita halves. I chose hummus, babaganush (creamy eggplant salad), spicy sliced marinated carrot salad, tahini, roasted eggplant, tabouli, and 15 fresh- from the oven – falafel balls.
Their menu says the platter is supposed to feed 10 people (priced at $11.95 per person plus tax), but was more than enough for our gathering of 19 guests. Jerusalem is indeed a great resource for take home dinners, catering, and even eating in their dining room.
