Between the parties, shopping, wrapping, and all the other endless activities that fill up the holiday season, preparing a meal, whether for just your family or a gathering, can be a daunting task.
Some people leave it to the professionals who cater holiday meals.
Restaurants in and around Saratoga have many options to meet people’s holiday needs. Restaurant owners recommended planning ahead as much as possible, especially when hosting an event.
Cathy Hamilton of Putnam Market in Saratoga Springs, said they ask for three days’ notice for most catering, although there are a few things they can do in a last-minute scenario.
“Our catering menu has platters for groups both small and large. Often our customers have family favorites and use us to fill in the other sides, from shrimp platters to cheese platters. All of our food is made from scratch here in the store, so it tastes like homemade. It is also designed to be easy to heat, serve and eat,” said Hamilton.
