August is National Peach Month! Why not celebrate with a peach-themed office party! Cater2.me can help with ordering office treats — but here’s what you should know about peaches whether you’re enjoying them for an office lunch or at home.
Peaches: the perfect fruit an outdoor office lunch
As summer winds down, take advantage of the warm weather and get outside. Cater2.me can provide boxed lunch delivery, so everyone has a grab and go option. If you have access to an outdoor space, you should be dining al fresco! Bring a table and chairs outside or picnic in the park.
Buying the perfect peach
Cater2.me’s trusted vendors will make sure you have the best, but if you’re buying on your own here are some tips. The general consensus is that a quality peach is one that’s firm when squeezed. Look for those that give slightly when pressure is applied but are not overly hardened. According to Eat The Seasons, the amount of pink coloration on a peach’s skin varies and is not an indicator of ripeness. Look out for peaches that still retain a green tint: that’s a sign that the peach was picked prematurely.
Make your office lunch extra peachy
Depending on how devoted you are to your summer theme, you can prepare a menu completely consisting of peach-infused dishes or have one killer dish. Our account managers can craft custom menus your office will love. Here are a few items you might see:
- For the entree, why not try Grilled Pork Loin With Peaches? Pork loin soaked in a glaze consisting of Dijon mustard and brown sugar that is nicely offset by the smoky tenderness of char-broiled peaches — now that sounds delicious.
- A signature cocktail that is both refreshing and adheres to the theme is the Peach Julep. Party-goers will enjoy sipping a blend of homemade ginger syrup with Bourbon, ice, freshly muddled mint, and peaches.
- And who can say no do dessert!? Serve up some Fresh Peach Ice Cream. The ice cream, made rich through ingredients like whole vanilla beans and heavy cream, is a decadent end to a fun meal.
