Seeking suggestions for menu ideas for feeding a film crew for an all day shoot. [View all]

Last edited Sat Feb 22, 2020, 07:50 PM - Edit history (2)

My husband and I own a small business that is rapidly growing. We have hired a video artist/producer/director to produce short informational videos about our product to expand our YouTube channel and social media presence. The first shoot is this Saturday. The director asked that we donít take off site breakfast/lunch/coffee breaks so I will need to provide food and beverages for the production people and our staff to graze on throughout the day - 7 men and me. The guys on my staff are eaters! No vegetarians, vegans or gluten issues...just the director who says he doesnít eat a lot of carbs. I have a small kitchen at our shop including a full sized fridge and gas stove. I entertain quite often at home but for some reason, this project has me flummoxed on what to do for this spread. I want to have fun with it. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.



UPDATE: We're still on site with the film crew. It has been a long day and my job as caterer is almost done. I have a couple more takes for my part in the video and then I'll start cleaning up. Thanks to all of you who gave me great suggestions. Here's the menu I went with:

Breakfast: Cinnamon swirl wheat bread, bacon knots, egg, sausage and cheese burritos, fresh strawberries, bananas, coffee, tea and warm cider.

Lunch: Green enchilada chicken soup (topped with jack cheese, tortilla strips, jalapenos, cilantro and sour cream). Taquitos, guacamole, salsa and chips, sliced veggies. Fruit seltzer water, Kombucha tea, various sodas. Macaroons and chocolate chip cookies.

Afternoon snack: Veggies and hummus, cheese and crackers, apple slices, cheddar cheese bread sticks, cookies from lunch.

Looks like the kegerator is seeing some action...
