Shabbat Dinner for 60 by Susie

Hello everyone — Alex here.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted but I just had to on this auspicious occasion because I don’t think my Mom will brag about it enough! I am so proud of her because she just sent off dinner for 60 people for her first catering job. The event is a young Jewish professionals Shabbat dinner in Santa Monica. Here’s what’s on the menu:

– Best Guacamole & Spicy Salsa Verde

– Fideos (Mexican Lokshen)

– Aztec Portobello & Corn

– Breaded Cauliflower in Tomato Sauce

– Hungarian Roasted Paprika Chicken

– Classic Salad with Red Wine Vinegar Dressing

We will update with photos of the dishes once we receive them after the event.

60 people isn’t too much more than my Mom has done here at the house for one of our Sukkot dinners, so she has the organization before such an event down pat. No hectic moments. It was very cool (and a little odd) to pack it all up in aluminum, label it and send it off. But it was a very happy and proud moment.

Also: I’d like to announce that this is the beginning of our availability as caterers for certain select events around the Los Angeles area!  Please get in touch if you want to discuss at 

Thanks as always for reading and sticking with us through our Mexican Jewish journey.

  1. Wonderful post Alex! While your mom makes it look so easy to simultaneously please the palates of large numbers of people, I have no idea how she does it. Great news Susie on your decision to satisfy even more people with your amazing cooking talents. Love, Gary

  2. Do we have the recipes for all of those tasty dishes? I don’t think so!!!! Breaded cauliflower – yum!! Hungarian roasted chicken paprika chicken – double yum!! Maybe i just missed them on past posts….. I’m sure it was all delicious. Those lucky young professionals!
