Saveur Catering is a boutique catering company serving New Orleans and the surrounding areas.  We offer local, seasonal, farm to table menus for events large and small. Our long-standing relationships with local farmers ensure that we bring the best of the market to your table. A sustainable philosophy is at the heart of everything we do and we are committed to using locally sourced produce and sustainably raised meats and fish.

Our menus are created by Chef Melissa Araujo and her talented team of restaurant-trained chefs using beautiful, seasonal ingredients sourced from local artisans and farmers across Louisiana and the South.

Food will be one of your major wedding costs — typically, the catering bill accounts for 45 to 50 percent of the total wedding budget. The first big choice you'll make as you plan your dinner is how to serve your guests. Back in the day, couples pretty much had two choices: a sit-down dinner or a buffet. But nowadays, there are so many more options to explore when deciding how to serve your reception meal. To help you figure out the best serving style for your celebration, we've outlined the five most popular meal options

PLATED DINNER 


 What it is: A plated, sit-down dinner is considered the most traditional and formal option as each guest is individually served a plated meal. Typically, guests are served three courses: appetizer, entrée, and dessert (sometimes a fourth course—an intermezzo or amuse bouche—is added before the entrée). Caterers will usually give guests a choice of two (or three) entrées, which they select beforehand; another option is to serve each guest two proteins, such as meat and fish, on one plate (sometimes called a "duet" plate).

Buffet Dinner


What it is: Food stations are set up on long tables where guests can walk along and serve themselves. Another option is to have servers stationed behind the buffet table serving each dish. A buffet-style reception is usually considered the most casual style of meal service.

Food Stations Dinner   


What it is: A station-style reception is one where the food is spread out among different "stations" throughout the reception space. For example, there may be one area that is a carving station, a raw bar, a tapas station, a dessert station, and so forth. The portions served at each station are typically on the smaller side, usually requiring just two or three bites to finish.

Family- Style Dinner                              


    What it is: Similar to a sit-down dinner, a family-style reception has guests assigned to specific dinner tables and waiters to bring the food to the table. Large portions of the dinner offerings are placed on each table on serving platters for guests to fill their own plates (it's just like sitting down for dinner at home with your family!).

 

Cocktail Style Reception Dinner   


What it is: A more recent trend, a cocktail-style reception features hors d'oeuvres and other small bites offered all evening long in lieu of a sit-down meal. The hors d'oeuvres are usually one- or two-bite portions and can be a combination of hot and cold options. The hors d'oeuvres can be passed by servers or stationary for guests to get themselves. This reception style is a good choice for couples wanting a more casual atmosphere and for their guests to really mingle and meet each other

 

A special thanks to Melissa and her team for catering our New Orleans wedding. The food was amazing. Melissa has exquisite creativity and flawless execution. It was a pleasure to plan the menu with her, during which she was a seemingly endless source of ideas. On the day, the food and staff was nothing short of excellent. Professional and prepared, Melissa was in touch with me throughout the day. Upon arrival, her team seamlessly overcame a few last minute changes. As the bride and coordinator, I appreciated Saveur Catering’s capable performance – I did not spend a moment worrying about the food. Our families continue to rave about the food. Overall, it was a delicious, impeccable experience for our guests.

The Southern Food & Beverage Museum is a nonprofit living history organization dedicated to the discovery, understanding and celebration of the food, drink and the related culture of the South. While based in New Orleans, the Museum examines and celebrates all the cultures that have come together through the centuries to create the South’s unique culinary heritage. SoFAB also hosts special exhibits, demonstrations, lectures and tastings that showcase the food and drink of the South.

We examine:

  • The food and drink of the American South in all its aspects;
  • The many ethnicities – African-American and Caribbean, French and German, etc. -- that have combined to create unique Southern food and drink traditions;
  • The farmers, fishermen, and hunters and gatherers who have produced the food;
  • The processors, inventors, chefs and business people who run the restaurants and stock our stores with Southern products, and the home cooks and families who have passed down recipes and food traditions for generations.
