Gluten-Free Catering for the Holidays

Bolay holiday Catering for a crowd

Now that Halloween has passed, the holiday season has officially begun. That means tons of socializing, entertaining, and, of course, cooking. From now until the end of January, it sometimes seems like one giant party.

With family visiting and all the holiday events, the body needs good, nutritious food to fuel it through the holidays. There’s plenty of sweet treats around, not to mention all the family favorites from Mom’s stuffing to your sister’s corn pudding and Aunt Molly’s flan. But, with all that delicious, but not always so-good-for-you food around, sometimes you need something a little lighter, a little more nutrient-rich to balance out all the treats the season has in store.

If you are facing the impending holidays with equal parts anticipation and intimidation, don’t worry, we got you. At Bolay, we’re here to help make the holidays not only more flavorful but also easier. Let us do the cooking so you’ll get more of what matters the most: time with your family.

For Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving ushers in the holiday with all the traditional treats: stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and of course, the turkey. There’s no doubt about it, for most people, the turkey is the centerpiece of the Thanksgiving feast. But while you are busy working your magic on the turkey that everyone loves, why not get a little help with your sides.

At Bolay, our Thanksgiving catering has all the gluten-free sides you need to go with that beautifully browned turkey you will be serving. Brussels sprouts and turkey are a match made in heaven, and when you add the Balsamic Mushrooms, you’ve got something truly special. If you like to go the non-traditional route, consider the Kale Yeah! Salad to go with your Thanksgiving meal. It’s the perfect antidote to some of the heavier dishes Thanksgiving is known for. These are just a few of the side dishes we have available to give your Thanksgiving dinner something extra.

Day after Thanksgiving

You spent most of Thanksgiving cleaning, cooking, and then cleaning again. Who wants to cook the day after? If you’re not quite ready to face the turkey leftovers, come into Bolay and bring a family pack home. It’s a great way to recover from a hard day of Black Friday shopping. Even if most of it was done online.

Our family packs offer you the choice of 1 base, 2 veggies, 1 protein, 1 sauce, and 1 add on. Your family gets a delicious meal, and you get to put your feet up and relax.

Small Family Gatherings

You’ve got family coming to visit, and it’s getting complicated. You’ve got two vegans, one gluten-free, one won’t eat seafood, two want beef or pork, and one is strictly low-carb keto. You may not understand everyone’s food choices, but want to have a happy and enjoyable meal together. The Build Your Own Bol option is for occasions just like this.

Your guests can choose their own bols. It’s as simple as that. They can try their hand at flavor layering, or select one of our chef-crafted bols:

Baja Bol (small) – cilantro Noodles, Jasmine Rice, Ginger Broccoli, Lemon Chicken, Avocado, and Cilantro Pesto Sauce

Vegan Bol (small) – Kale Yeah!, Cajun Sweet Potatoes, Seasonal Veggies, Miso Glazed Tofu, Minted Tomatoes, and Carrot Ginger Sauce

Thai Bol (large) – Baby Spinach, Cilantro Noodles, Seasonal Veggies, Ginger Broccoli, Lemon Chicken, Pork Tenderloin, Freshly Chopped Cilantro, and Spicy Thai Sauce

Surf n’ Turf Bol (large) – Jasmine Rice, Kale Yeah!, Seasonal Veggie, Balsamic Mushrooms, Spicy Thai Shrimp, Steak Au Jus Minted Tomatoes and Spicy Thai Sauce

You just place the order and send your brother-in-law out to pick it up. Chances are he’ll come back with the order, plus some gluten-free cookies, Stubborn Soda (fair trade, all-natural, farm to fountain) because it looked interesting, and some craft beer. Why not, it’s all there in one quick stop.

Office Parties

You’re in charge of the office party, what do you do? You could order pizza, but you’ve already had that three times this week. When it comes to holiday catering for a crowd, there’s nothing better than the Build Your Own Party option. You get your choice of healthy bases, proteins, and more – all gluten-free, of course.

Choose from any of our bases, veggies, proteins, add-ons, and sauces. Your office mates will be delighted and amazed, and you’ll have the reputation of someone who goes the extra mile to please. Be sure to include a vegan option and some gluten-free cookies with your order. Check out our Guide to Office Catering to help you plan your next office event.

Holiday Parties

Once the Thanksgiving holiday has broken the ice, the season is in full swing. You’re likely to be invited to numerous holiday events, and you may even be planning to host one of your own. Putting a holiday party together can take a lot of time – time you may not have.

Bolay offers the 10 Person Holiday Party Pack for just such occasions. Your guests will be delighted with a combination of our gluten-free fan favorites. The 10 Person Party Pack includes:

Spice up the Holidays with our festive spread!

  • Kale Yeah!
  • Roasted Brussels Sprouts
  • Cajun Sweet Potatoes
  • Steak Au Jus
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Cilantro Pesto Sauce
  • Cookie Bundle (10 Assorted Cookies)

Holiday catering doesn’t get much easier than this. Just call up or order online, and your holiday party is done.

You’ve Been Invited to a Party

In addition to throwing your own party, you’ll probably be invited to many parties during the holiday season. So many parties! And you can’t just show up empty-handed. Let us take care of it. No time to bake? Pick up a few dozen gluten-free cookies. No one will turn down a freshly baked snickerdoodle or chocolate chip cookie. They won’t even miss the gluten.

Or maybe you need a quick side dish to bring. How about some Balsamic Mushrooms, a perennial crowd-pleaser? Choose the Kale Yeah! Salad to make sure you have something substantial and nutritious.

New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day

Trying to plan exciting New Year’s Eve events that are family-friendly? Instead of braving the crowds, throw a party at home filled with fun and delicious food. And to make it easy, serve up some Bolay. You can choose from any of our holiday catering options to create the best New Year’s Eve party ever.

When Bolay takes care of the catering, you’ll have plenty of time to decorate with plenty of confetti, balloons, and streamers. You can even get the party started with a fun dance party. Clear a space in the middle of the room and play festive family-friendly music that everyone can dance to.

Maybe a New Year’s Day open house party is more your style. It’s casual and laid back, and when you put Bolay in charge of the catering, very little work is involved. Since you’ll have guests coming and going, choose a Party Pack to feed all your guests. Add your own touches by serving a signature dish. Order some Sterno warmers and racks to keep your food at just the right temperature.

Plan your next party with holiday catering at Bolay. Order online and pick up or have your meal delivered right to your door. Nothing could be easier.
