Swifty's Off Premise Catering
A cocktail reception, for example, might include the following mix of bite-sized flavors and textures: smoked salmon on black bread with dill and lemon; goat cheese and sun dried tomatoes baked in a phyllo puff; Swifty’s classic caramelized bacon; devilled quail eggs with caviar; lobster with tarragon sauce in a leaf on endive; filet of beef on black olive ficelle with mustard sauce; truffled chicken hash in a toasted brioche shell.
A luncheon may begin with a seasonal soup, our cheese soufflé, a delicate lamb’s lettuce salad with baby artichokes; to continue, a lemon roasted breast of capon, home made sorbets or ice creams followed by finger sweets and demitasse.
A dinner ranges in style from traditional seated to casual buffet. In any event, our lump crabmeat with tomato aspic is an often requested starter, as is baked wild striped bass or cold baby lobster with remoulade sauce. The main course might be a classic chicken or game pie or roasted breast of pheasant, which is especially suited to fall and winter. Herbed rack of lamb, loin or saddle is a frequent spring time choice. Grilled Black Angus steak is also popular. A salad and cheese course may follow the main event. Our pastry chef will finish the menu with a chocolate torte or vanilla meringue cake, an apple crisp or a mixed berry crumble, anything from dacquoise to a dipped strawberry—we entertain all ideas.
