Catering Menu Ideas

Whether you’re planning a bridal luncheon, a tailgating party or a formal dinner with friends, you’ll be able to serve your guests an array of delicious options morning, noon and night. The Cocoon Catering Company offers extensive full-service catering menus that include farm-to-table items ranging from quiches to shrimp cocktail to pies made with seasonal fruits … and everything in between!

Football Fare – To some, there is nothing more exciting than inviting friends over to watch the big game. But you have to eat, right? You and your friends can start off with locally sourced cheese trays, or farm fresh seasonal veggies with a variety of house-made dips. Then move into hearty sandwiches, such as the “Russian Bear,” which is roast beef, turkey and Swiss cheese with Russian dressing on black bread; or ham, cheddar and honey mustard on a pretzel roll. Crispy fried chicken may hit the spot, or maybe some house-smoked baby back ribs. Whether your favorite team wins or loses, your spread will ensure your friends have an incredible time.

Bridal Luncheon – If you’re tasked with planning a bridal luncheon, that’s a huge honor and a big responsibility rolled into one. Cocoon Catering takes the pressure off with its catering menu ideas. Brunch is a breeze with its assortment of scones, muffins, breads and coffee cake, quiches made with farm-fresh eggs, fruit and berry salads, house-made lox platter with bagels, shrimp cocktail, and a special cheesecake or celebration cake to finish off the party.

Formal Affair – When you’re planning for an office party or a formal holiday celebration, you may have several different food preferences or aversions to consider. It’s best to provide a variety of options to satisfy all of your guests. Cocoon’s entrees and more substantial fare run the gamut from seafood to chicken and from pork and beef to vegetarian options. Cocoon sources responsibly raised Pennsylvania meat and poultry and serves organic, farm-fresh vegetables.

The Silk Mill in Hawley has been a vital part of this community since its construction in 1880. Its many incarnations over the years have included a silk factory with the foremost technology of the day, a textile factory and antique center. Never has it been more vibrant than today. The vision for the repurposed factory is to have a center that celebrates the lifestyle of the Pocono Lake Region – a place for the residents and visitors alike to shop, gather, eat, exercise, and learn.

The Hawley Silk Mill is located at 8 Silk Mill Drive in Hawley, PA. Come visit us!
