Holiday Prep

Dinner, then Dessert may not be available on the Holidays to help throw a holiday party, but we can prep you for a great party. 

Dinner, then Dessert will do the shopping, pre-cooking and prepping. We will handle preparing the pastries and desserts. Have holiday favorites? Please let us know, we can accommodate any recipes you may have.

On the day of your party all you have to do is finish the items off in the oven and you're done. The days of spending two weeks working through making all the side dishes are gone. The hardest thing you'll have to do is remember to set the timer.

Please remember that we do book up quite quickly around the holidays, so be sure to give us plenty of time to be able to schedule you for a date that fits your schedule.
