All of the foods at Feastivities are prepared fresh daily and contain no preservatives. Therefore, we recommend that you eat our foods by the date stamped on the item (of course, certain items such as dips and chicken salads will keep longer). Our market personnel will inform you about which casseroles freeze the best. Remember also that keeping foods in the proper temperature zone is imperative. Keep your foods refrigerated at 40° until you are ready to eat them and never allow them to sit at room temperature longer than three hours.
Our plastic lids allow customers to look at the dish they are purchasing, but are not oven safe. Please remove the plastic lid and cover the dish with foil before baking it. In addition, our market trays that are used to package chicken breasts and twice baked potatoes are not over safe, so please remove your item from the tray before reheating.
Wrap in foil and rewarm in a 350° oven for about ten minutes. You may also rewarm the chicken in the microwave; however if cooked too long, the integrity of the item might be compromised.
They are at their best baked in a 350° oven for approximately 20-25 minutes or until they are heated through and just starting to brown. If time is limited, you may also heat them in the microwave.
As a general rule, the small (5 x 7) pans serve two to three people. The 9″×13″ pan will serve approximately 8-12 people depending on appetites. When we are helping you plan a menu, it is helpful to know if the guest list will include all ladies, all men, or children. These factors will help us determine how much food you need to order.
Count on one and a half pieces per person of two to three appetizers. You don’t want your guests to fill up before dinner. If the hors d’oeuvres are going to be your dinner, plan on serving two pieces per person of five to six different items. You may want to have a baked cheese, a crudite tray, a substantial meat (such as beef tenderloin or a honey baked ham with rolls), and serve three additional small pick up items. Remember to choose a complimentary variety of foods, including something vegetarian, a cheese, a meat, a poultry, a seafood, etc.
We always have ample selections in the market that you can choose from, and we could easily accommodate for eight people at any given time. However, we need three days notice if you need great quantities of food or if you would like to make a selection from our Catering and Special Order Menu.
