  OUR PHILOSOPHY

At BDH Catering Inc., we support our local farmers by using their seasonal produce. Therefore, our clients are provided with the best quality ingredients in all our dishes.

BDH is committed to providing scratch-made, healthy, and delicious food for you school's lunch program. With a full catalog of proven recipes and innovative ideas, BDH offers selections such as hormone-free, free-range grilled chicken; petit meatloaf cups; made-from-scratch Pad Thai; and chicken shawarma, just to name a few. Brown rice and whole-grain breads and pastas are also featured daily.

Main entrees that meet various dietary needs are also our specialty. Delicious vegetarian selections such as whole-grain pasta primavera; grilled eggplant focaccia sandwiches; and spinach & feta quiche are some of our more popular offerings. We also have a number of gluten-free and lactose-free options.

To augment all of our entrees, we make, from scratch, a wide variety of soups: New England Clam Chowder; Chili; Butternut Squash; Beef Barley; and many others.

If your school is looking for more options, we can create a sandwich station that features whole- and multi-grain breads; an assortment of cold-cuts; the best produce available; made-from-scratch chicken and tuna salads; and freshly made hummus.

Upon request, we are able to offer nutritional analyses for all of our recipes.

" You all make the best soups I've ever had! Today's Tomato basil was simply the best!" 12/12/2012

This is the type of email that I often forget to send. I want to tell you that, in my estimation, Jody and the entire Middle School kitchen staff have gone above and beyond my expectations and have earned my deepest appreciation. Matthew has a recent diagnosis that requires dietary restrictions. Dana met with Jody once we received this news, and his quick and knowledgeable response has been completely reassuring. Not only has the staff sprung into action to ease the transition for Matthew and accommodate his needs, Jody has essentially provided us with the service you might expect from a professional nutritionist.

The dinner and lecture went really well yesterday. Everyone who came was really impressed and very pleased. Thank you so much for your help in making it run smoothly and look (and taste!) so good. I am especially appreciative that you were each gracious, helpful, understanding and kind as I figured out what I was doing and what was needed.

When I worked at Citibank years ago, you could nominate a coworker for a CitiStar, which was a nice honor. I would nominate Jody for a Citistar if we had such a thing here. And, I would say the same for the whole group at the middle school

"Hey guys, That Shwarma yesterday was awesmome. I had 2 and would've happily eaten 2 more if i weren't trying to eat my weight at lunchtime. This may be my favorite lunch you server here. You guys do an excellent job and mainly because of your willingness to try new things. this on is a keeper. " 11/6/2013

" Wow is all i can say. What an exciting selection and configuration to look forward to. I know the energies you've expanded and you must realize how grateful we are for what you are lutting in place and creating around healthy food choices. This is evidence of that " good work" concept we are trying to incorporate and manifest in the life of the school all together!" 8/24/2012

It is said in this life there are only two things you can count on: death and taxes. I would add to that short list BDH catering.
Jody- the food preparation, presentation, service and sensory quality were outstanding and I received many compliments from the families. Please pass along my gratitude to your staff.
You guys are the bedrock upon which successful programs are built.
