This Picnic is Paramount

By: Leah Nolan on March 26, 2016


You know that really bad food you had once at a wedding, with which you now associate the word “catering”? Well, it’s time to change your perception. Paramount Events serves the opposite of that food. Their dishes are made fresh every single day with quality ingredients. Bottom line: the food is good. From events to weddings, to work lunches to dinner parties, they have all the bases covered. And as tempting as the entire menu sounds, I want to focus exclusively on lunch.


Every so often I find myself sitting at my computer daydreaming about laying out a gingham blanket and having a picnic lunch in the park. In reality, there are two things wrong with this scenario – I don’t own a gingham blanket and I can’t fit an entire picnic basket and its contents into my office fridge. So, as I scanned the Paramount Events catering menu and my eyes scrolled vertically down the page, I noticed that the sandwich and salad sections seemed promising, the wraps looked impeccable, and the gourmet boxed lunches sounded supreme, but when my eyes hit the section, titled, “Picnic Box,” I knew these ready-to-eat creations were everything I’d been aspiring to have for lunch.


Inside of each box is a main dish, a side dish and a dessert, perfectly packaged and wrapped in – you guessed it – gingham paper. The first box, the Petite Left Over Fried Chicken Sandwich (actually two mini sandwiches) is served on a buttery brioche bun and the seasoned breading on the chicken is crisp and flavorful. The juicy chicken sits atop a lettuce and cabbage slaw, which gives it an extra crunch and a slightly bitter contrast. As soon as I finished one of the sandwiches I was glad I had another – although it wasn’t around for long. Accompanied by a zesty corn and tomato salad and a medley of fresh fruit, both sides were brimming with freshness.
