Cloves Pairs Well with Red Wine


temp-post-image

Cloves, like many herbs and spices have a historical presence that dates to centuries before the birth of Jesus Christ. A ceramic vase containing cloves was found by archeologists in Syria and dates to approximately 1700 B.C. It has been written in ancient Chinese literature that during the third century B.C. that cloves were used to freshen the breath of visitors to the emperor of the Han Dynasty. Muslim sailors traded this spice during the Middle Ages. The trading of cloves is even mentioned in literature such as The Arabian Nights. Characters like Sinbad the Sailor bought and sold cloves from India.

Because we care … at Coastal Catering we Recycle


temp-post-image

We LOVE our community and the world!



When you live and cook on an Island you gain a greater appreciation for refuse that’s just thrown into a trash can or dumpster that gets emptied into a landfill. Well, actually, our appreciations is for keeping as much of our stuff out of the landfill as is possible.


We hand select all of our produce from wonderful vendors. Fresh is always best. That’s why we walk into coolers, open boxes and inspect fresh fruits and veggies. Unlike most caterers whose products are dropped off from big trucks, we take the time to shop… the results are fresher, healthier and beautiful dishes.


At Coastal Catering we compost our organic waste, we recycle car...
