Sir Ives “Easy Breezy Backyard Barbecue” delivers the NJ Barby to You!

Posted in: Company Picnic

Sir Ives Caterers will deliver the barbecue right to your home—ready to serve!

Our clients requested it and we are more than happy to deliver!

Let’s face it—if you live or work in New Jersey, you have a lot going on seven days a week.  From work to family to activities and other obligations, it’s a surprise any of us have time to socialize with friends and family.

Sometimes, you decide not to host a summer barbecue due to the headache of shopping, prep-work and clean-up.

It’s enough to deter anyone from hosting a summer party here in NJ.

So we decided to help solve the leg work by doing it all for you!

No need to lift a finger—we’ll bring the menu to your beach house, townhouse or pool house!

That’s why we created the Sir Ives “Easy Breezy Backyard Barbecue”.

Starting with as few as 50 guests, we’ll assemble all the basics that you need, including paper goods, and deliver them ready to serve.

Posted in: Catering, catering tips, Company Picnic, Corporate event

At every corporate or private event we cater, a Sir Ives specialty touch is to feature something simple, delicious and unusual.

Here’s a perfect example you may wish to use for your weekend entertaining:

Whenever we present these simple and summer-fresh kabobs, our clients and guests always remark how pretty and tasty they look and taste.

If you are finalizing your Fourth of July menu, this may be just the dessert to WOW your guests!Brownie-Kebab with chocolate

Start with homemade or purchased brownies that are not too soft. Chill them before threading onto the skewers to harden them up a bit. (Chill your strawberries and blueberries also.)

Grab a bag of grocery store marshmallows (yes you may be able to find patriotic versions!) and thread away.

Finally, it’s drizzle time!  In a quick back-and-forth motion, drizzle the kabobs with chocolate right out of the bottle!

Chill them for a few minutes or serve immediately.

Enjoy and Happy Fourth!
