Advice from our Chef-Owners & Catering Experts:
As many people in the United States begin to plan for fall and winter holiday celebrations, CDC consistently offers new considerations and guidelines to help protect individuals and their families, friends, and communities from COVID-19. The CDC states “When planning to host a holiday celebration, you should assess current COVID-19 levels in your community to determine whether to postpone, cancel, or limit the number of attendees.” While holiday traveling and traditional gatherings may pose health risks, our Chef-Owners and Catering Experts have new ways and ideas for you to celebrate safely this holiday season.
3 Safe Ways to Celebrate Christmas

Here’s how to make your Christmas special, even if concerns about COVID-19 mean you’ll have to celebrate the holidays away from your friends and family.
