Maximizing its more than 80 years of experience and capitalizing on what is arguably the largest selection of kosher grocery products in the country, Fairway Market has unveiled a new 84-page kosher catering menu to make any gathering–from weddings, bar mitzvahs, Kiddushes, and holiday and Shabbat meals to Super Bowl parties, business lunches, brunches, and simple get-togethers with friends–delicious, healthy, and all under the internationally recognized and trusted supervision of Kof-K.
The menu (www.fairwaymarket.com/files/catering/fairway-kosher-catering-
menu-2013-final.pdf), representing the best from Fairway’s world-class kitchens, is available in each of the 14 stores in New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, Westchester, Rockland, and Connecticut.
Fairway’s Kosher Catering is a one-stop shop, offering not just the most scrumptious and diverse food selections, but also full catering service, including staffing, linens, floral design, and other party equipment rental needs. There are also specialized savings offers for synagogues, and gift-card programs to support fundraising and nonprofit organizations. In addition, Fairway, with its powerful marketing arm, can help these synagogues and organizations with their outreach efforts to ensure that they achieve their goals.
“Fairway has attained an unparalleled track record in the kosher food world over the past three-quarters of a century,” said Herb Ruetsch, chief executive officer. “Now, we are building on this record by creating long-term catering relationships with individuals, organizations, synagogues, and companies in the tri-state area. Our team will hand-hold customers through the entire process, from giving guidance on food selection to providing party rentals and service. And, of course, the food prepared by our world-class chefs is plentiful and simply delicious.”
The menu choices are structured so individuals can create their own bill of fare or select from the many themed packages, including Asian, Latin, Israeli, Italian, and deli, for their occasion. In total, an enticing array of hors d’oeuvres, entrÃ©es, desserts, breads, and beverages is available.
Fairway Kosher caters to parties from 5 to 500 people and is already the exclusive for Temple Beth Torah on Long Island. Its meat menu features traditional favorites such as triple-decker New York deli sandwiches and deli platters with moist or lean pastrami and house-cooked tongue.
There are also modern offerings such as the Latin dinner package with beef fajitas and “pollo a la brasa,” and the Game Day packages with bruschetta chicken heros and house-made potato chips, antipasto platters, BBQ brisket latke bites, Argentine skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, and exceptional sushi and sashimi with Miami Sunshine and Red Ocean rolls. For dairy, Fairway offers its signature hand-sliced smoked salmon, whitefish, sable, and baked salmon, together with its famous bagels, as well as inventive dishes such as black cod with wild mushrooms and lemon Beurre Blanc, and an artisanal cheese board with guava gelÃ©e served on a slate tray.
For birthday and other parties, there are packages with everything from cruditÃ©s to short rib sliders to mini pastries to three-foot heros and chicken wings. Breakfast meetings can be more memorable with Texas-style challah french toast, blintzes, and quiche.
“We have carefully crafted choices for all taste buds, from traditional foods for weddings, Kiddushes, baby namings, Shabbat dinners, and the like, as well as more contemporary foods for Super Bowl gatherings, birthday parties, brunches, business lunches, or just evenings with friends,” said Rebecca Martin, catering director for Fairway. “This is an outstanding and comprehensive menu that our kosher customers will love.”
Fairway will host a kosher Thanksgiving food sampling in the Westbury, Stamford, and Paramus stores Sunday, November 3, 11:00 a.m.—3:00 p.m. Customers can taste candied sweet potatoes, butternut squash soup, apple cranberry challah stuffing, roasted Empire kosher turkey, and more.
