Assemble With Care

In the kitchen, our team is clean, concise, and efficient. We work in unison to assemble our dishes, delegate tasks, and provide service with care. Our bagels are fresh from a local bakery, sliced, and served with cold cream cheese and smoked salmon. We assembled a veggie platter for a variety of option to add […]

Wedding Taco Bar

The marriage was celebrated with a taco bar – and what a raging success that was. It was a night full of joy, laughter, and dancing. If an atmosphere could be embodied in a food, tacos were certainly the most suitable candidate. It was a casual and excited meal shared amongst friends and family in […]

Wedding Appetizers

Jasmine Catering was invited to be part of a beautiful Pacific Islander wedding that took place in the Oakland Hills. We were part of the set up and took great pride in the former, and were very quick with the latter. The event was a night to be remembered for the guests and an honor […]

Jeweled Rice and Dinner

This menu extends a simple and filling meal fit for a hungry belly and satisfies a craving for heartiness.

To make a complete bagel sandwich, we sliced up crunchy red onion, fresh Persian cucumber, powerful Kalamata olives, and sliced Heirloom tomatoes. To compliment […]

These are hand held filo dough stuffed with melted feta cheese and spinach, making for a rich combination. Following this was organic Medjool dates filled with creamy gorgonzola cheese and salted pecan. The diversity of flavors makes for a sweet […]

Almost-Vegan Pasta Bar

Lined up in order of natural stacking on your plate, we have first a perfectly cooked penne pasta, followed by a fresh tomato sauce, creamy pesto, and parmesan cheese if so desired.

These tiny pastries are a dessert lovers delight – they are sweetened pastry dough cups filled with a lemon custard and topped with fresh berries for the perfect amount of sweetness and variety in each little bite. Following  a similar aesthetic, […]
