International Women’s Day

Written by Raele Sabounjian

Celebrating International Women’s Day at Deborah Miller Catering

As women’s voices get louder and more powerful, International Women’s Day has also grown and become more significant year over year. We think this year will be especially meaningful after all of the recent scandals that have come to light, and there couldn’t be a better time to continue to fight for equality and respect in every aspect of a woman’s life.
Here at Deborah Miller Catering, we wanted to add a playful spin on this important and serious day and showcase the many versatile traits that a modern woman carries today. The many hats we wear should be celebrated, and what better way to do that than with food?! So here’s a list of 8 fabulous personality traits that define a woman (out of the 4548943789574893 others out there) and the DMC dishes that symbolize them!

    1. BRILLIANT –Avocado Toast on Multi-Grain Bread
      What’s a better superfood combination than avocado and multigrain bread? This dish is full of healthy ingredients that stimulate the body and brain, and it’s a perfect on-the-go type of snack that is suitable for any time of the day. Brilliant indeed.


    1. AMBITIOUS – Individual Yogurt Parfaits
      Early bird catches the worm, and sometimes that bird needs a quick snack to suffice as she goes about her day and takes care of business. Our individual yogurt parfaits are a classic – well-balanced, healthy, and flavorful. Perfect for the countless go-getters out there today.


    1. FEMININE – Breakfast at Tiffany’s Mini Croissant Sandwiches (brie & orange marmalade, smoked salmon, egg salad with chives)
      There is nothing wrong with being a tough chick and still being in touch with your feminine side. And is there anyone more feminine than Audrey Hepburn channeling Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s? Our mini croissant breakfast sandwiches, with combinations like brie& orange marmalade, smoked salmon, and egg salad with chives are dainty and delicious, and play up the theme perfectly.


    1. LOVING – Italian Wedding Soup
      Being a source of love and comfort is one of the best things about being a woman, whether you are a mother, sister, daughter, or friend. That caring trait exists in us all in some way. Our Italian Wedding Soup - complete with orzo, meatballs, parmesan, and veggies – is one of the best comfort foods on our menu, and a taste of it is sure to make you feel right at home.


    1. TOUGH – Green Juice in Mason JarsA concoction of cucumber, apple, celery, ginger, kale, and lemon makes up our green juice, which basically equates to healthy and tough all the way. Women are survivors and fighters in so many ways. It doesn’t take much to understand why we correlate this powerful trait with this yummy and equally powerful DMC drink.
    2. SOPHISTICATED –Ahi Poke Bowl
      This chic individually-portioned snack is upscale and trendy. Poke tuna, which is all the rage at the moment, is laid over a bed of rice in a small, sleek bowl and looks as fabulous as it tastes. It’s definitely one of the fancier snacks on our menu, and like each woman’s fabulousness, should never be hidden away.


    1. GENTLE – Coconut Macaroons
      Sweet, pretty, subtle, dainty. Once again, it’s okay for a woman to be tough as heck and still check in with her softer side from time to time. This lovely dessert treat is the epitome of soft and girly, and you know what? Sometimes a little girly is necessary.


    1. FEARLESS - Toasted Farro Salad
      With bold ingredients like honshemeshi mushrooms, spinach, goat cheese, pickled shallots, and charred onion vinaigrette, this seasonal DMC salad is not afraid to stand out from the crowd and be different. Bravery is one of the universal traits of women – every single one has fought through adversity or challenges in some way, and came out shining on the other end, the same way this salad ends up bursting with flavor!


So there you have it! Of course, it is impossible to really equate the monumental qualities of women to food on a menu, but we think these 8 options are perfect pairings and something to have fun with. The all-pink theme is so cliché and played out; add a touch of something different and modern this year for a great way to truly celebrate international Women’s Day at your next event.
