From now until June, a two Layer Mini Pinwheel Platter & 48 Mini Tulip Cupcakes, usually a combined value of $178.00, is now on sale for only $99.00. This deal easily serves 25 people.
The cupcakes were a great hit!! Everyone loved them! Even the banana ones that fell over – they used spoons to scoop up the icing and put it back on the cupcakes so you know they must have loved them! I definitely will be making this a monthly affair so please put us down for the Monthly Birthday Club. I know you have a lot of flavors and variations that the cupcakes can be decorated so that is one thing I’d like to discuss for next months birthdays.
Again, thank you so much for the lovely display, the speedy delivery and the yummy, yummy, yummy tasting cupcakes! I have to place an order for myself soon just to take home!
Talk to you soon!
The My Fox LA voting for LA's best caterer is done for the year, and we were runners up! After years of coming in the top five, Culinary Delight Catering came in 2nd, a big move up! Thanks to everyone who voted, and all our customers!
Here's some of the other recent recognition we've received:
Thanks again to all our fans and customers. We couldn't do it without you!
Need your Los Angeles caterer to provide gluten free food for your event? Culinary Delight Catering can do that!
Everything was so wonderful. I will definitely recommend you and your company for future parties. Emma, you were so kind and patient, very easy to work with and excellent customer service.
Gluten free is not easy to work with, however everything turned out well and I did not get ill, thank you.
The party was enjoyed by all and my husband was happy.
THANK YOU. The servers were fantastic!!!!
Our Los Angeles catered food platters are perfect for almost any occasion! Just ask the people who did their research!
Thank you so much for suggesting your platters for our event on such a short notice, they were perfect... You guys have the BEST platters in town, we did our research and know for a fact that your platters are beautiful and full and feed a lot of people.
The cheese, fruit, shrimp, pinwheels, veggie and mini dessert platters were the wonderful and made us shine, because everything was so very, very fresh. We will certainly use Culinary Delight Catering in the future for all of our nurses meetings.
Thanks again, The Nurses Team, Cedars Sinai
This is one Appetizer that is sure to add POP to your next event. YUMMY!
Pre-bake the bacon until half done and put on paper towel and put aside until you are ready to wrap it around the chicken.
Wash the chicken breasts several times, and cut length wise for thinness. I use this method because it is faster. Season to taste.
Mince green onions or your favorite herbs, such as rosemary, basil, etc.
Mix green onions and/or herbs into the soft cream cheese, spread onto each piece of chicken breast. Roll up the chicken breast, brush with olive oil, and hold together with toothpicks.
Bake the chicken breast half until half done, take out of oven and let it cool, cut into bite size pieces and wrap each bite size piece with a slice of bacon and secure with a tooth pick. Place back into the oven and bake until done, but not dry. ENJOY!
If you have any questions please feel free to email me!
Emma wrote the following post on the Culinary Delight Catering Facebook Page, and we thought such a history making event was worth posting on the blog!
Culinary Delight Catering is so excited to share the news about the event that we catered yesterday. Most of you may already know that the Stanley Cup has not been in Los Angeles in 45 years, we had the extreme honor of catering a Kings event yesterday and the STANLEY CUP was there, it seemed as if the entire Manhattan Beach Police DEPARTMENT was there to take a picture with the STANLEY CUP as well as about 800 others, staff, team members, etc.
Many of the guests commented on if they were more amazed about the STANLEY CUP being there and their chance of taking a picture with it and getting to touch it, or the amazing food and the extensive DESSERT BAR soooo many choices.
So how could we not feel HONORED to be the caterer of choice for such a HISTORY making event, our entire staff was soooo happy and excited, we worked but it was as if we were a part of the celebration. In all of my years as a caterer I would consider The STANLEY CUP EVENT the most memorable of all and one of the happiest days of my catering career.
We are waiting on the pictures, so stay tuned :):):)
A Big Shout Out to the Kings!!!!!
Emma's a gem and other glittering praise for Culinary Delight Catering!
You are a GEM, I told them all about you as they declared to have had a wonderful experience with your service and that everything was just delicious . They all put some in the fridge for the next few days and the Birthday girl took some home to prolong the enjoyment of those yummy bites.
Thank you for putting the menu together for me and your understanding of what the young people working in that industry would like to eat.
Those mini burgers, mini pizzas and the fruit patch not to mention the assorted petite desserts, all were very big hits.
We will post on your web site soon and add our appreciation for you for a all to see and take notice.
Our most sincerest Thank you, Emma.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! It was perfect, I couldn’t be more grateful. There was more than enough food and I heard a lot of great things about the bacon wrapped chicken + salmon cakes. The desserts too of course, I can’t wait to start placing more orders for lunches etc. I loved the caprese presentation, very classy ;-) Thanks again Emma, you’ll be hearing from me soon.--EU

For our new fruit platters, we use the finest fruits available. We use cut-outs, such as roses, stars, humming birds, and many more. We skewer them, stick them into Wheat Grass, and put them on a 16 inch tray.
For an additional price, we can customize the shape of the Wheat Grass and use different types of containers. We also do Veggie Patches as well and Cheese Patches. We use Melons, Honeydew, Cantaloupe (watermelon by request) Grapes, Strawberries, Mangoes (in season), Pineapple, Kiwi, and we offer the option to select your own fruits.
The Wheat Grass can be used in smoothies or any type of juicing, which is a Big Plus! We are very flexible with our arrangements. We do not want to list our price because the price of the fruits fluctuate. We like to work with our clients and give them a good deal.
There is only one other catering company in LA that make fruit arrangements and deliver them, and they are very expensive and do not offer any options; they only use templates arrangements.
You can see all the various kinds of platters we offer on our Los Angeles meal delivery platters page.
Here's our newest spring and summer budget menu for LA catering!

We love it so much, we've added Olive Tapenade to our appetizer menu!
Mix all of the above ingredients, serve room temperature oR chill if you wish
Great served on Toasted Baguettes. ENJOY!
What's the plus side of ordering more food than you need? Leftovers!
What wonderful hor d' ovures! The men from our sales group scarfed it down and I do not know if there were any clients here or not, but we all enjoyed it and the left-overs are great (I'm enjoying them now!).
Thank you so much for your great help & I appreciate everything you have done for us. I will spread the word to anyone who asks me for catering.
PS: BBQ Beef has just the right amount of flavor. Umm.
Have a great afternoon,
Here's a nice note from a happy customer from a recent charity gig.

The last thing our clients worry about is food!
Emma thank you so much! You and Michael were fantastic and truly made the night special. I was able to relax and enjoy the party (first time I think I have ever enjoyed a party that I’ve hosted) because of your delicious food and excellent service. We will certainly call you again.
Our guests could smell your mini cheese burgers and satay chicken upon entering our buildting, not to mention how yummy they were, as well as all the foods.
Happy Valentine's Day to you as well.
All my best,

Emma's Stuffed Mushroom Florentine
Pre heat your oven to 375
Thaw Spinach out and squeeze out the water, beat egg, finely chop cheese, mince garlic.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, and chill for about an hour. (I use a clean towel, I place the thawed spinach in the towel and wring it very hard, until the spinach is dry)
Wash medium size portobello's or baby bello's and dry, scoop out the middle of each.
Dip each Mushroom in melted butter, stuff each Mushroom with the mixture, place on a non stick cookie sheet.
You may add a little Parmesan Cheese to the top.
Bake stuffed Mushrooms until the cheese is melted. YUMMY!
We have found that our clients always run out of this appetizer first.
If you have any questions or cannot find an item need for this recipe, feel free to email or call me, ENJOY!
Here's some more letters from happy Los Angeles catering customers, including this first one from the Mom of a one year old who will now remember his birthday as distinctly different from Christmas!
My son's 1st birthday party was so much fun, all the little kids were so happy with the fun food. All the kids loved the PB&J sandwiches with the animal shapes. The little sliders were so cute and the little cupcakes were cute to.
Thank you for not making it look like Christmas, even tho it was during that time of year.
We felt happy that our little boy will have some wonderful memories to look back on when he grows up.
I am glad I met you in the store, we had a lot of laughs!
I wanted to thank you so much for making our party a great success. My husband was also very impressed with your service and had an amazing time. (he is not easy to please, once he searched for an item forever and gave up) I can not tell you how many people commented on the food and have asked me for your card. I will be recommending you to all our friends. The older people as well as the young people all were impressed with the food, you were like an angel, in less than a week you arranged for the Birthday Cake, rentals, entertainment, servers, bartenders, flowers like magic.. If you are ever stuck for anything I have here on this side of the valley, please call me, I would be happy to loan it to you. .
Thank you again and best wishes this new year.
Happy New Year to you and Ron !! Our guests had a marvelous time and really enjoyed the ambience and of course the [...] dinner you prepared. Folks are still talking about how tender the Beef Tenderloin was and how tasty and juicy the Chicken Breast were. The veggies were perfect as was the mac & cheese. and then the Dessert Bar was POPPING with mind blowing choices. Boy was I exhausted when I finally got back to my suite…smile. But worth it!!!!!
Things were simply lovely, thank you so much for everything, you truly BLASTED the New Year in.
Speak with you soon…warmest regards,
As usual, Los Angeles caterer Culinary Delight Catering's cupcakes were the hit of the party! And, as usual, the customers have rave reviews!
Good morning Emma,We had a great evening...way better than we had imagined!!! We enjoyed your wine, appetizers and delicious moist cupcakes you delivered. I made sure I ordered extra so I have a dozen to take home for myself (and our two kids). I provided cupcake boxes for my guests who preferred to take the cupcakes into the movie or to take home. Afterwards our friends watched "Breaking Dawn" in the private screening lounge with loveseats. It was an awesome time for all! My friends were so impressed with the event and of course raved about your cupcakes. Thanks for being part of our event. You sure were " icing on the cake"!!!I have attached a picture of Dave and myself at our birthday bash. Your warmth and caring attitude makes us feel like we've known you for a long time. Hope to meet you someday soon. Take care and Happy Holidays to you and your family.XOXOThe Arboleda's
I just wanted to thank you so very much for all that you and Ron did yesterday. The luncheon was a complete success!! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your many food choices, your homemade chicken salad, appetizer, cupcakes and your Strawberry whipped cream cake! Many are still raving about it today!
And thank you so much for your kind gift! You really shouldn't have done that!
Thank you so much! All of us here in the Dept. of Spanish and Portuguese at USC love you and your business!
