CATERING TO YOUR NEEDS WHEN A PARTY GETS BIG, IT’S TIME TO CALL A PROFESSIONAL WORDS BY TOM GIFFEY

S

o you decided to throw a holiday party – a BIG one. This year, you’re inviting all your friends/ relatives/customers/clients/random strangers to eat/drink/be merry in the celebration of the holiday of your choice. It is certain to be a memorable event. But if you want those memories to be good ones, you won’t be able to feed your guests with just a bag of red-andgreen tortilla chips and a couple of cartons of egg nog. No, you’re going to have a call a pro – a honest-to-goodness caterer. A person whose job it is to turn your party dreams into reality – even if your not quite sure what those dreams are yet. Fortunately, we’ve got numerous caterers in the Chippewa Valley who can help you out. (Check out our listings on page 40.) Before you start making calls, here are some things to know and questions to consider to make your party the best it can be.

LO O K F O R F L E X I B I L I T Y Tony Draganowski has spent a career in the fine food business, most recently as proprietor of Bijou Catering, based out of his own Bijou Bistro in Eau Claire. He stresses that he tries to be as flexible as possible for his clients. “Every catering event I look at as a blank canvas, and we have to create the picture more or less,” Draganowski says. Whether a client wants to spend $100 per guest or $10 a head, whether they want to serve $600 a case cognac or lemonade and iced tea, Draganowski says he can work within any budget. In other words, know how much you can spend.

K NOW WHAT YOU WANT That being said, potential clients should be able to answer some key questions when they contact a caterer, Draganowski says: Where is the party? How many guests will there be? Will the food be served buffet-style, on plates, or passed out by the waitstaff? Jessica Waters of KP Katering in Eau Claire agrees that the two main pieces of information you should be able to provide a caterer are your budget and head count. In addition, clients should have an idea about how they want the food presented: Will it be full-service (with the caterer providing tablecloths, china dishes, and centerpieces) or basic (with the caterer simply bringing the food)?

K EEP IT HOT Every cater will handle food preparation, set-up, and staffing differently, Waters notes. However, they do it, she says, “With holiday parties, the main question should be regarding food quality and if they have the equipment to ensure hot food is served when the client wants it.” (This is especially important during the Wisconsin winter, when the weather can interfere with both delivery and food temperature.) Some venues or homes have kitchen space where caterers can work, but both Bijou Catering and KP Katering prepare food in their own commercial kitchens and deliver it hot.

B E ON TREND Whatever kind of food you serve at your shindig, it’s most likely going to be in small servings on small plates. “People rarely do the big sit-down diners anymore,” Draganowski says.

Instead, clients and their guests seem to prefer to stand up, eat, and socialize in less-formal cocktail parties. For Bijou, popular dishes include beef sliders, skewered Kobe beef, and stuffed mushroom caps – although Draganowski says he has served everything from sushi to foie gras to tater tot casserole. (Did we mention they’re flexible?) Waters, of KP Katering, agrees that open-house-style events for clients typically feature heavy hors d’ oeuvres, while full-menu meals are more common for corporate employee parties. And while her business offers a variety of set menus (bourbon whisky meatballs, anyone?), KP can also adapt to clients’ unique requests. “With the

popularity of Pinterest,” she says, “we are seeing a wider variance for what people want in this area, and it’s made cooking so much more fun!”

CATER TO YOUR CROWD Finally, Draganowski says partythrowers should remember to keep in mind the tastes of their party-goers. For example, he says, “Just because you don’t like chopped olives, doesn’t mean they don’t like chopped olives.” Overall, strive for balance when you build a menu, he says. If you’ve got a couple of protein dishes, balance them with a few vegetables. Then relax, enjoy the food, and let the caterer create a party to remember.

ROLL WITH RUDOLPH SICK OF JUST HAVING SANTA AT THE PARTY? THEN RENT A REINDEER. WORDS BY TOM GIFFEY

F

rom greeting cards to TV shows – not to mention parades, parties, and shopping malls – Santa Claus is an ubiquitous sight this time of year. So ubiquitous, in fact, that – and we say this realizing it could put us on the naughty list – there’s a danger we’ll get sick of the Jolly Old Elf. With that in mind, what’s the planner of a big yuletide shindig to do? Call for reinforcements, North Pole-style. We’re talking about Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, and Co.: Yes, for the right price, you can rent reindeer. In fact, just down the road from Eau Claire you’ll find a herd of 50 of the docile, antlered animals at Noel Productions of Osseo, where Jeff Fritz and his family have been raising reindeer for nearly 30 years. In November and December, the Fritzes have animals at as many as three events a day, ranging from parades (in 2001, eight of their reindeer pulled a sleigh through downtown Chicago) to corporate parties. They’ve done events throughout Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota, and last winter branched out to gigs in Colorado. They also lease some of their animals out to others who exhibit them. Interested in getting the reindeer for your event? Fritz advises that you contact him as early as possible. The reindeer do certain events year after year, so the calendar fills up fast. In fact, he suggests that potential clients try to plan their events around the animals’ availability. Even though reindeer are a rare sight in Wisconsin, Fritz avoids using the term “exotic” to describe them. “Exotic” calls to mind wild animals like lions and tigers, he notes, whereas reindeer have been domesticated for mil-

lennia by the people around the Arctic Circle. “They’re a very personable animal,” Fritz explains. “It’s like having a dog. They know who you are. Like a dog, they come when you call them. … They’re not easy to train, but they’re very smart.” Reindeer really can be taught to pull sleighs (although there’s no word on whether the Fritz family’s animals can fly) and are even-tempered enough to tolerate being exhibited in display pens and standing around for photo ops, as the Fritzes’ animals do. Fritz, who grew up on a dairy farm, bought his first reindeer in Canada nearly three decades ago and in the years since has developed a thriving business. Rather than dressing as storybook elves, the Fritz family dons authentic Laplander garb when displaying their reindeer. Their costumes help them educate the public about the history of human-reindeer interaction and the species’ cultural importance to the Laplanders – or Sami people – who live in northern Scandinavia, Finland, and Russia. Around the North Pole, reindeer – who are cousins to caribou – are raised for meat, hides, antlers, milk, and (yes, it’s true) transportation. The family and their reindeer are as busy as Santa’s elves during the Christmas season, but everybody’s ready to rest by the New Year, especially the cows, who begin calving in mid-April. “The biggest thing about it is people really do enjoy them,” Fritz says of the reindeer. And while adults are fascinated by their historical and cultural importance, he adds, “Kids really get a kick out of reindeer and Santa Claus.” Learn more about Noel Productions atfacebook.com/livereindeer or by calling (715) 597-3555.

HOLIDAY FOOD PREP 101 FIVE KEY TIPS ON SAFELY PREPARING YOUR BIG MEAL WORDS BY IRIS LANG

T

he holiday season is right around the corner and you know what that means – delicious home cooked meals! In Eau Claire County alone, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control estimates that 17,000 residents will become sick this year from eating unsafe food. Food safety is the most important ingredient to prevent foodborne illness when preparing food for the holidays. Food is a key part to many holiday celebrations; don’t let foodborne illness ruin your holiday. Use these food safety tips when preparing food this holiday season.

CLEAN YOUR HANDS AND FOOD CONTACT SURFACES OFTEN. • Wash your hands with warm soapy water for 20 seconds before and after handling food. • Wash food contact surfaces such as countertops, cutting boards, and utensils between preparing each food item.

SEPARATE RAW MEAT FROM READY TO EAT F OOD. • Separate raw meat, poultry, eggs, and seafood from foods that won’t be cooked when grocery shopping, storing food in the refrigerator, and while preparing meals to prevent cross contamination. • Use separate cutting boards and utensils when handling raw meat. • Protect your cooked food by putting it on clean plates and surfaces.

COOK YOUR FOOD TO THE PROPER TEMPERATURE. • To ensure that raw meat is cooked to a safe internal temperature, follow all cooking temperature directions. • Use a food thermometer to check the thickest part of the meat. If the temperature is greater than or equal to the temperature recommended, your food is done! • Undercooking raw meat can allow harmful bacteria to remain on your food.

CHILL LEFTOVER FOOD WITHIN TWO HOURS. • Refrigerate or freeze leftovers in shallow containers to cool evenly. • Maintain refrigerator temperature at 40°F and freezers at 0°F. • Leftover foods stored in the refrigerator should be eaten within 3 to 4 days. Leftovers that are frozen are safe indefinitely.

REHEAT LEFTOVERS TO 165 °F. • To keep your food safe, keep it out of the temperature danger zone: 41 °F to 135 °F to stop the growth of bacteria. • Keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold! Iris Lang is an environmental health specialist with the Eau Claire City-County Health Department. This article originally appeared in Chippewa Valley Family.
