Homemade Happiness 
An interview with Jay’s Catering 

Tell us a little about how your company got started and what the future brings:
As we approach our 50th anniversary, we are still driven by the same principal: Fresh food, always from scratch. Armand ‘Jay’ Mastroianni and Eleanor Mastroianni started Jay’s Catering as a one-stop-shop for milk and sandwiches, and it quickly grew into a full-service catering company. 50 years later, we are still a family owned and operated business. The future for Jay’s will be continued growth not just of our catering business, but also our café, Ellie’s Table.

On-trend food ideas for 2017 weddings:
A return to our roots. Chefs are starting to take a trip down memory lane to recreate and bring new life to their childhood favorites. A mix of nostalgia and creativity has been responsible for some of our newest menu items!

Favorite cocktail hour appetizers:
We love interactive stations in addition to the traditional tray passed hors d’oeuvres. Our current favorite is an al pastor street taco station paired with tray passed mini pork verde sopes and shrimp ceviche tostaditas.

Three trendy ingredients for 2017:
Seaweed, faro and preserved lemon.

The past decade took us from the cake to cupcakes to donuts to cake pops to macarons to dessert tables…what’s next for desserts?
A unique dessert that no one has ever seen. For us, that means our award-winning Crème Brulee Kouign Amann. Layers of flakey pastry dough filled with crème brulee and torched fresh in front of guests. We are also seeing a rise in the demand for ice cream. We look forward to finding new and exciting ways to offer ice cream on a catering scale in 2017!

What is the best approach to serving food for specialty diets?
A lot of our couples feel that they have to alter their entire menu to cater to guests with specialty diets. A stations menu is the perfect solution! You can build in different options to fit any diet (gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, vegetarian, etc.). As opposed to giving everyone the same plate, this allows guests to pick and choose which stations allow them to indulge without compromising their diet!

Our food philosophy:
‘Happiness is Homemade.’ This is not only the slogan of our bakery and café, Ellie’s Table, but also a concept we live by here at Jay’s.

How can couples use food to wow their guests and make them feel special?
Let them create something all their own! We love our make-your-own stations such as fresh poke, sliders, and street tacos. Letting them choose their own toppings gives them the feeling of creating their own custom menu. This goes for the bar as well; we love our craft cocktail bar where guests can mix up their very own creation!

What is your single biggest crowd-pleasing wedding menu item?
We have to say our mini filet and wild mushroom wellington with béarnaise sauce. It may be an old classic, but a tray never comes back full!

The Best Day Ever includes:
Family & friends, delicious food that showcases the couple’s personalities, and a unique dessert to end the night!

Love Story:
Kira is originally from California, but was living in Texas for some time prior to meeting Aaron. Aaron is a Texas native, but he lived in California several times throughout his life. Their paths crossed a couple of times, but it wasn’t until they both found themselves in Houston that their lives finally intersected!

Love Note:
Aaron and Kira love to run together and enjoy the outdoors. Their wedding day was no different as the morning of the wedding Kira and her bridesmaids went paddle boarding, while Aaron and his best man went for a bike ride!

Love Story:
Sam proposed after a romantic day of celebrating Sophie’s birthday. The day was full of surprises, but the last surprise came at dessert that night, when he surprised Sophie with a covered dessert plate. When they removed the lid, it was an empty plate with a small box, and on top, the engagement ring!

Love Note:
Sophie visited numerous stores and countless websites, but couldn’t find the perfect dress. Sophie’s dad is a dress designer by trade, and he made her the perfect dress, along with all the bridesmaid dresses!

Love Story:
Joseph proposed to Radhika on a mini trip down to Saint-Tropez. After planning a night that included a romantic sunset walk and a French feast complete with champagne, Joseph proposed on their walk home by the water!

Love Note:
Their wedding was truly their fairytale and a beautiful union of two religions coming together. People flew to Orange County from all across the world to witness their love, making it so special to Radhika and Joseph.
