There's nothing like having the power to fill the stomachs of hungry executives at a corporate function along with introducing new mouth watering foods that will perk their taste buds. Here at DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia, we are obligated to being the most diversified corporate catering Philadelphia based company that will customize any dish to fit the varying needs of your guests. We understand that not everyone eats the same foods or has certain dietary restrictions, when it comes to attending corporate functions. We want your guests to feel welcome as well as delighted when tasting a variety of different dishes, instead of the same old traditional finger foods, garnishings, fruits and salads. John DiAntonio offers mouthwatering catered dishes from assorted sushi and sashimi to delicious Indian chick pea curry with daal.
DiAntonio's corporate catering is here to assist you with a delicious custom menu suited to fit those long winded meetings and public speaking events. We understand that most corporate heads and their staff tend to miss meals in the midst of all this running around, which is another reason we offer some of the healthiest catering menus around. We have discovered that most of the Eastern countries have many natural spices that can be incorporated into the typical North American diet, without losing one bit of it's delicious flavor. Most of these foods can be prepared and ready to go very quickly which is another plus in our book, when dealing with a typical busy nine to five day or a week long event. Our goal is to offer scrumptious healthy dishes that will be hard to forget. Instead of a boring bowl of fruit, picture a platter of Indian Aloo Gobi, or potatoes and Cauliflower with fresh ginger, ground chili and coriander. Never mind those meat and vegetable finger sandwiches, why not try a platter of grilled chicken, beef or salmon teriyaki on a bed of steamed rice?
DiAntonio's Catering knows how important it is to make sure to add all the right ingredients from all over the country to fit just about any taste bud and at different times of the day. We offer breakfast, lunch and dinner menus that come with great flexibility when it comes to catering the office staff. We make it our business to find out about different dietary restrictions and we come up with a custom platter that everyone can enjoy, without feeling left out in the cold.

Ingredients: Kosher Caterers Philadelphia
- 12 sprigs fresh dill
- 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 3 sprigs fresh cilantro
- 2 small yellow onions, thinly sliced
- 1 bunch celery, cut into 1/2" pieces
- Sprigs from 1/2 bunch flat-leaf parsley plus 1 tbsp. chopped
- 3 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2" pieces
- 1 turnip, peeled and cut into 1/2" pieces
- 1 parsley root, cut into 1/2" pieces
- 1 3 1/2-lb. chicken
- 1 lb. chicken feet
- Salt, to taste
- 2 tbsp. seltzer water
- 1/8 tsp. dried dill
- 2 eggs, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp. matzo meal
1. Gather up dill, garlic, cilantro, onions, celery, and parsley sprigs in a piece of cheesecloth to form a purse; secure with twine. Make a second purse with the carrots, turnips, and parsley root.
2. Put dill purse, chicken, chicken feet, salt, and 1 1/2 gallons water into a large pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, covered, for 1 1/2 hours. Add carrot purse and simmer, covered, until carrots are tender, about 30 minutes.
3. Remove and discard dill purse and feet. Remove chicken and carrot purse; let cool. Pull enough breast meat into fine shreds to make 3/4 cup. Reserve 1 cup vegetables from the carrot purse. Cover and chill shredded chicken and vegetables. (Reserve remaining chicken and vegetables for another use.) Strain broth through a fine sieve; chill overnight. Skim off and discard all but 2 tbsp. chicken fat from broth; set fat aside.
4. Whisk together reserved chicken fat, seltzer, dried dill, and eggs in a bowl. Pour in kosher matzoh meal while whisking. Cover and chill the kosher matzoh mixture for 15 minutes. Bring 2 1/2 quarts salted water to a boil. With wet hands, form kosher matzoh mixture into 1" balls. Reduce heat to medium; drop in balls. Cook, covered, for 15 minutes. Stir balls gently and simmer, covered, until fluffy, 10–12 minutes more. Meanwhile, transfer reserved shredded chicken, mixed vegetables, and broth to a large pot; heat over medium heat. Transfer balls to the broth. Serve soup garnished with remaining parsley.
This particular day in Philadelphia we are catering crab cakes, steak with garlicky Swiss chard, Dijon chicken, sweet potato, quinoa burgers, Thai lemon grass soup, homemade matzoh ball soup, rice and beans, string beans, vegetable medley and escarole with garlic and carrots. The fish is lemony halibut. The salads are Farm salad with dried figs, goat cheese, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, candied pecans, arugula and a white balsamic vinaigrette. We also have tuna and cannelloni bean salad with fresh spinach and lemon.
All this is prepared and served. Most is gone in half an hour. We have gotten great at from scratch production. Delivering this amount of food catering in Philadelphia takes a lot of organization and team work. We use a refrigerated truck.
We start three days ahead of the catering in Philadelphia date. First, all veggies are cut for soups and vegetable dishes. Then all salad bar items are cut. We have an amazing list of over 100 items on the salad bar. Then Roasted meats are prepared for the cold bar to make sandwiches (turkey, our own roast beef, our own spicy turkey, our own ham, chicken salad, tuna salad, shrimp salad, kim chee, super food salad, 2 kinds of seaweed salad). The fruit than is cut and prepared includes raisins, watermelons, honeydew, cantaloupes, strawberries, grapes, pineapples, blueberries, and raspberries. A large assortment of breads is used, including tomato & 3-cheese focaccia, olive bread, wheat bread and rustic white and European wheat.
Grilled Dijon Chicken (a great recipe that’s easy to make) Serves 6.
- 1/2 bottle Italian salad dressing (fat-free okay)
- 1/2 cup Dijon mustard (more according to taste)
- 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- In a resealable plastic bag, or flat container with lid, mix dressing and mustard.
- Add chicken breast and marinate in refrigerator at least 2 hours, turning often.
- Grill over hot grill 10 minutes on each side or until chicken is no longer pink.
- Can also be baked in 350 degree oven until chicken is done.

When we catered for presidential candidate Mitt Romney In Philadelphia we had a lot of unusual work to do. All staff and servers had to be cleared by secret service when we arrived and well before the event. Everything had to be perfect. DiAntonio’s Catering provided the best linens and set it up in a conservative but elegant way.
It was a pleasure serving many dignitaries: Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney, John McCain, Haley Barbour, Rudi Gulliani, but Mitt Romney was the most personable. Mitt actually ate the food we prepared. Most guests were shuttled in and shuttled out. Although Mitt was also shuttled in and out he actually stopped and said to me “Hey, what do we have here?” Then I explained the food that was catered specifically for this event in Philadelphia . He got very excited. I remember preparing for days to serve Hillary Clinton and all she did was take a sip of tea.

NBC10! : Welcome back to the 10 show. So we are talking about a summer time favorite that you don't necessarily have to be down the shore to enjoy. Now we have John DiAntonio from DiAntonio’s catering making crab and linguini. And it smells so good already. It smells great, it looks great. Jilly and I are used to making reservations so this may be a challenge for you since Bill is off today.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : You know I’m excited to be here and I think your going to love this dish. What were going to do is, it’s actually crab, Maryland crab and were going to sauté them up. This is an Old Italian favorite, I got this from my grandmother she made this and everyone who passed by said how incredible it smells. Even if you think you don't like crabs you will love this dish.
NBC10! : Did you used to help her when you were a kid make this dish?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : I did down in the basement all the 10 grandmas always had 2 kitchens.
NBC10! : So what’s the key here.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : So this is a cleaned and cooked crab you can use raw we decided not to use raw for this application. These are what it will look like when the sauce is done. What were going to do is just make a simple sauce. The key is cooking it for a fair amount of time an hour to an hour and a half. You have to watch it .
NBC10! : So it’s just in butter?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : This is extra virgin olive oil.
NBC10! : Ok.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : There are a couple of little tricks I do. This is getting kind of high.
NBC10! : I’m just going to stand back here.
NBC10! : She’ll be back when it’s done.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : There’s a coupe little tricks I do. The first thing is add your crabs, onions, and garlic. The recipe is on the website .
NBC10! : Ok.
NBC10! : You let that cook for a little while.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : 7 or 8 minutes just like this. Ok and what were trying to do, were trying to get the crabs to release all their good flavors. They have an amazing flavor. Like I said how people said it really smells good but when they taste it, its amazing people really love this dish. So as the onions and garlic are sautéing you just want to add a little bit of fresh parsley, bay leaves. Again release the aromatics and this is fat back you don’t have to use it.
NBC10! : What is it?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : It’s fat back it’s from the pork. It just adds a lot of body and even a little grease. You want the pasta to actually stick to the sauce. And if it’s just blanched it doesn’t stick.
NBC10! : Ok.
NBC10! : You take that out then?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : No you leave it in the whole time. Were going to let this cook. I would let it cook higher but this is a dish that pops and I don’t want to pop. This is good because I have the finished product here.
NBC10! : Ok.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : So once this cooks.
NBC10! : Keep giving it a little stir?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : Yea this is really important. Once this burns it’s kind of lost.
NBC10! : Oh. No.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : So you have to stir it every 15 minutes.
NBC10! : Have you done that before?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : Done it a lot of times, my grandmother has done it a lot of times. Any chef that says they have never probably is not telling the truth but there is a trick. If you put a whole onion sliced in the sauce, the onion will actually mask the burntness and you can't tell. But if it’s burnt real bad, it’s just a gonner. So one of the coolest things about this dish is you need a lot of garlic. If you want I can show you a little trick?
NBC10! : Sure.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : Watch this.
NBC10! : Lets learn a trick.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : A lot of people have a hard time peeling garlic because it’s such a pain. But if you just take your garlic and put in a bowl, this is 2 cloves were going to.
NBC10! : Crunch it up?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : You don’t have to peel it just put it in. Now were going to peel 2 cloves in ten 10 seconds.
NBC10! : Is this is a challenge?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : Yea you can even try it if you want.
NBC10! : Lets go.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : But here’s the thing, if you did it for 30 second you would actually get them all. But we are just going to do 10 seconds because you know time and everything. So let me go right here. Now I do 5 seconds and you do 5 seconds. Ok so what were going to do. Don’t forget this is 2 whole bowls.
NBC10! : That’s what it sounds like in my neighborhood on new years when we go out side.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : You want try it for 5 or 7 seconds?
NBC10! : 5 or 7 seconds?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : Well 5 seconds.
NBC10! : Not 6. 5 or 7 seconds?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : 6 is good.
NBC10! : Is that good?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : Ok because we really want them to be. Ok let’s see what we have here. Now look at this their all peeled.
NBC10! : Oh.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : So the ones that don't peel. You save for next time. It’s not perfect, but if we did it for 30 seconds.
NBC10! : Yea.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : Isn’t that cool?
NBC10! : Now you peel them up?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : Well it such a pain peeling this. Otherwise you got to squish it. You get it all over your fingers, it burns under your finger nails.
NBC10! : You know what you do, you make the kids do the work and they have fun shaking it.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : Think about it, to be a great chef you need fresh ingredients.
NBC10! : So where do we go from here?
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : Ok so right now what were going to do is put in puree.
NBC10! : While you’re doing that, you have a give away for our audience.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : I do, homemade cookies that were baked today. They have those to eat and we also did a nice gift certificate. If they ever choose to use our catering service its bestcateringphiladephia.com They can just go online pick whatever food they want. I gave them a $100 gift certificate.
NBC10! : So quickly John this is the finished product. So as we are wrapping up here this looks to die for.
DiAntonio's Catering Philadelphia : Now that is the finished product and if you are a true Italian you always want to add cheese. Now this is the actual finished sauce. These crabs made that sauce and this sauce is amazing and I threw in extra lump crabmeat.

Hello my name is Tim and I’m calling to place a high priority last minute catering order for this evenings Olympic curling events. It s an intimate affair I’m hosting so ill need food prepared with an American and Swedish flair for two, or just one but with a colossal appetite. Also I’m concerned some may be sensitive to your company’s slogan regarding the abduction of your customer’s grandmothers. The kidnapping of senior citizens may surprising to some but it’s also a sweeping global pandemic and assuredly not a laughing matter. Thanks.
