Here is what Karen, a Yelp reviewer had to say about the food she ordered  for Christmas Dinner:

5 stars. "Great experience with Elegant Eating catering Christmas dinner. Very nice people to work with, flexible, accommodating. So easy to reheat, well labeled packages, extra broth to baste a turkey.... so surprised how juicy and delicious even with reheating prior to serving. Would not hesitate to use this company again!"

Wonderful Gift Baskets & Bags:

Elegant Eating's gift baskets and bags make great gifts for friends, family, clients, co-workers, staff, and anyone else that you like.

Gift baskets and bags made at Elegant Eating are created with the client in mind. All the products are full sized without stuffing on the bottom. Our gift shoppers make a great presentation with a smaller budget in mind.

The products we use for the holidays are unique and not easily found in local stores.

Our home baked cookies (famous across Long Island), handmade marshmallow treats and pops, espresso beans, mixed nuts, chocolate bars and coffee are sure to please.

For a special presentation, send an Elegant Eating Gift Tower. It makes a fabulous show with its giant holiday ribbons and the visible products will create a lot of excitement, even before the gift is opened. Towers may include: wrapped boxes filled with goodies or disposable trays with delectable edibles.

As you can tell, we can go on for a very long time. We just want all of our customers to know that holiday shopping can be one stop at Elegant Eating.

CHILLY PENGUIN CHEESE BALL

    

Fun appetizer for Christmas party at home or in the office.

Serves 15 - 20.


Ingredients

  • 16 oz. cream cheese, softened.

  • 4 oz. blue cheese.

  • 2 tsp. chopped shallots.

  • 1/4 tsp. coarse salt.

  • Dash hot sauce, such as Frank's Red Hot.

  • 1/2 c. poppy seeds, for coating.

  • 2 dark raisins.

  • 1 almond.

  • 1 carrot.

  • 1 red bell pepper (optional), and 1 scallion, for decorating.

  • Crackers, for serving.
     

Directions

  1. Using a stand mixer or a bowl and spatula, mix cream cheese, blue cheese, shallots, salt, and hot sauce.
     

  2. Form the mixture into a ball and cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
     

  3. Before serving, remove a 2-inch piece of the cheese mixture, roll into a ball, and set aside; this will be the penguin's head.
     

  4. Reform the remaining mixture into an egg shape.
     

  5. Cut out a triangle roughly the length of your cheese ball from a sheet of wax paper. Press the paper into the cheese ball, with the widest part of the paper on the widest part of the ball.
     

  6. Roll the ball in the poppy seeds. Set ball on plate. Slowly remove the wax paper. Ball should be covered in poppy seeds, save for the penguin's breast.
     

  7. Set head atop body. Add raisins for eyes and almonds for beak. Slice off two equal-size carrot rounds and place on either side of the head as earmuffs. Connect earmuffs with the green part of the scallion.
     

  8. Using a vegetable peeler, peel one long strip off the remaining carrot; wind this around the penguin's neck as a scarf. Slice remaining carrot into toes; arrange at the bottom of the body to make feet or use two red bell pepper slices for skis.
