NJ Catering Service, Christopher's Kitchen, Revamps Website For Catering Services in New Jersey.

Christopher's Kitchen in Morganville New Jersey launches redesigned website to promote his catering service in NJ.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PRLog (Press Release) - Sep 17, 2011 -
Catering Service NJ - New Jersey Caterers

At Christopher’s Kitchen of Morganville, NJ, we know how to cater a party. From our award winning food, to our exquisite catering and our fantastic dinner parties, you are sure to enjoy an unforgettable dining experience.

Visit http://www.cateringservicenj.com to view our catering menus.

Our food is different from the ordinary. We believe that the best ingredients make the best dishes. We know how it is to be unhappy with food choices. That’s why Christopher selects only what is best to ensure that your event surpasses your expectations.

Our catering selections are custom tailored to your palate. The options are endless. We will put together a menu designed especially for your event. From drop off sandwiches to full service dinner menus complete with professional staffing, we will work within your budget to create a custom menu that will impress both you and your guests.

About the Chef
As a child, I remember being captivated by my grandmother’s ability to take something as simple as a tomato grown in her own backyard and turn it into a savory sauce for her hand cut spaghetti noodles. It was a sight to be seen and a taste so unforgettable that it inspired me to pursue a career as a chef.

A New Jersey native, I spent twelve years in Florida as an Executive Chef in several highly acclaimed, award winning restaurants. I have created menus incorporating Italian, Asian, Latin, French, Caribbean, vegetarian and organic cuisines. My passion for flavor has rewarded me as the recipient of various recipe awards including being a three time winner for Maple Leaf Farms Duckling and once for Bacardi Rum. I spent three years with Whole Foods Market as a Prepared Foods Team Leader. I have also hosted television cooking events and hold write ups in various publications for my culinary creations.

It is with my great pleasure to use my expertise and passion in the kitchen to bring to you Christopher’s Kitchen, a unique meal service and catering company located in Morganville, NJ that offers quality natural foods choices for your lifestyle while bringing your family and friends back to the table.

Chef Christopher Dutka
Real food. Real choices.
