Pate en Croute

We are a full custom caterer and we design one-of-a-kind menus to suite each individual client and type of event. We have no set menus and yours will be unique. The options will depend upon your needs and the seasonal availablity of ingredients. Our menus are never duplicated and many of the dishes are original, one-of-kind items, designed specifically to the tastes of the client and those of their guests.

As a courtesy we custom-design menu cards and place cards for all our menus.

The following sample menus were designed for previous clients of Ne Me Quitte Pas Catering, but we hope they help give you a broader understanding of our culinary style and aesthetic. We look forward to working with you to design a menu that’s best suited to your event and one that will provide a perfectly memorable affair for you and your guests.

Private Entertaining ~ Family Style Buffet

REVISITING THE SIMPLEST MEMORIES OF CHILDHOOD
We included this particular menu because we too remember and relish the memories of childhood when foods were simple but outrageously full flavored, and entertaining was as much about the family gathering as the chic get-togethers that were designed to impress.

Corporate and University Catering ~ Benefits & Galas

A SOPHISTICATED MENU FOR THE YOUNG AND THE YOUNG AT HEART
We were contacted by a member of the Boston Pops Symphony Orchestra, who is himself an accomplished conductor, to prepare a thank-you-menu for his own orchestra made up entirely of 27 trombones. After the show at the New England Conservatory the orchestra and their guests made their way to the Keller ballroom for the following menu. We were asked to come up with filling little bites that would appeal to a younger crowd of students, but that were sophisticated enough for a seasoned palate.

Hors d'Oeuvres Party ~ Formal

A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
For their 40th anniversary party this particular client requested an over-the-top hors d'oeuvre party with a wild number of choices (twenty-one in all). Rubies are the symbol of the 40th anniversary, so I suggested this as a possible theme for the menu. The client later called and added two additional themes: A Midsummer Night's Dream and Summer Garden Party. CLICK HERE for the complete menu with detailed descriptions of each menu item.

Amuse Gueule Party ~ Informal

AROUND THE WORLD IN FOURTEEN PLATES
Amuse Gueule (pronounced ah-myuz guhl) are casual little bites meant to whet the appetite before a meal and are typically served prior to a casual meal in a bistro or brasserie. This was the expectation of one of our clients who wanted an eight course tasting menu but with a casual approach as opposed to the more formal amuse bouche presentations. The client requested an East-Meets-West menu that would celebrate the coming together of two families, one of European decent and the other Asian.Click here for the complete menu with detailed descriptions of each menu item.

Private Entertaining ~ Formal and Buffet

THERE ARE NO RULES - HAVE IT YOUR WAY!
This is a menu we prepared for a 50th birthday party. The client couldn't decide if he preferred a formal sit-down menu or a buffet, and we couldn't see any reason to choose one or the other, so we came up with a served amuse bouche tasting menu followed by a Formal Buffet. It was designed to take advantage of the outrageous bounty of produce and seafood for the spring months. CLICK HERE for the complete menu with descriptions of each menu item.

Team Building Seminars and Private Cooking Classes

CHOOSE ONE OF OUR FULLY DEVELOPED CLASSES OR DESIGN YOUR OWN.
We may be biased, but we simply can't think of a better way to enjoy a day with family and friends or bond and team build with coworkers and colleagues than in the comfort of a kitchen. Whether you're a seasoned pro looking to brush up on unused skills or a novice looking to learn the basics, we can design a class that's right for you. Together, we'll cook, laugh and learn from each other and then devour the day's lessons. CLICK HERE for a list of our existing classes with descriptions.

Weddings and Rehearsal Dinners ~ Buffet Stations

ORIGINAL RECIPES & A ONE-OF-A-KIND MENU FOR A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME EVENT
This menu was designed for an August wedding. The couple asked for a whimsical affair, elegant, but with a playful twist and the foods should be prepared to allow their guests to mix and mingle through the rooms of a large Inn or to be brought back to the ballroom tables. After many discussions they decided that they wanted a sampling of international cuisines representing the places they had traveled as a couple, but they wanted the passed hors d'oeuvres and many menu items to reflect a summery carnival or street fair-like selection. CLICK HERE for the complete menu with descriptions of each menu item.

Small Plates Party ~ A Casual Affair

THE SMALL-PLATE TASTING PARTY FOR TEN OR 200
A small plates party is just what you're looking for when you want your guests to have the option to mix and mingle throughout the night, but you still want to ensure that everyone goes home feeling well fed and well cared for. No matter what your guests' tastes might be, there's always something for everyone and even the less adventurous won't be intimidated when they see that it's only a few bites in each dish to commit to. CLICK HERE for the complete menu with descriptions of each menu item.

Corporate and University Catering ~ Luncheons
or the Drop-Off & Pick-Up Service

SOMETIMES YOU WANT MORE THAN DELIVERY BUT LESS THAN A CATERED AFFAIR
Many of our corporate clients hire NMQP Catering on a regular basis to "drop-off" and "pick-up" sandwiches, salads and sweets for their business meetings. They want simple but upscale dishes that are easy to handle while mingling, wheeling and dealing. NMQP Catering delivers the menu items, sets up the buffet using our own serving pieces, utensils, plates and cutlery, etc., and then returns later in the day to clean up and leave the buffet area in the same condition in which it was found. This is a small selection of some of our clients' favorite salads, sandwiches and desserts. CLICK HERE for list with complete descriptions of each menu item.

DROP-OFF & PICK-UP IS GREAT FOR PRIVATE ENTERTAINING TOO
Please note that the menu items above, and just about any other menu we create can be delivered to your home or office and fully set-up and later that day we will return to pick everything back up again. Take the credit…we aren't telling anyone!
