Going Deep Green

We believe in doing everything in our power (pun, intended) to protect our earth and its valuable resources.  It has been 10 years since we became Marin County’s first Green catering company.  At that time we signed up for PG&E’s Light Green 50% renewable energy service.  Today we are still the only Green catering company in Marin and our commitment has become stronger.  Now we have committed to PG&E’s Deep Green 100% Renewable Energy program through the...

Global Cuisine As You Like It

At Delicious we love the excitement of creating Global Cuisine as you like it.  One of our greatest pleasures (and sometimes challenges) is making sure we personalize each menu for every event.  This often includes developing new recipes or honoring family traditions for a cross cultural client base. A great example of this is when we had the honor of catering Ana and Jean-Cleaude’s African themed wedding at Geneva Terrace in San Anselmo.  The menu included: Small Spoons with... Continue Reading

Staying Green - The 1st and Only Green Caterer in Marin

Have you heard? Delicious! Catering continues to be Marin’s FIRST and ONLY Green Caterer! We have always been conscious of our role in the environment and society. Then in 2007, as we became even more aware of the harmful effects of global warming, we decided it was time to make as much of a difference as we could. We investigated what it would take to become certified as a Green Business in Marin. We learned it was possible for our company to successfully make the positive changes to earn the...

Our WasteWise Efforts

As a business in San Rafael, we support the plans the city has implemented to reach the goal of Zero Waste by 2025. One of our favorite accomplishments has been participating in Marin Sanitary Service’s pilot program Food2Energy since 2014. The program was very successful and is now offered city wide. Food2Energy collects all food scraps from commercial businesses (restaurants and grocery stores) and, through controlled anaerobic digestion, turns this waste into a biogas. The power generated by...

Zero Waste Marin

In 2006, Marin County enacted a goal of 80% landfill diversion by 2012 and Zero Waste by 2025. Delicious! Catering, along with most Marin County residents, have embraced this challenge. Everywhere you look, there are waste collection bins in a rainbow of colors. We know that clean paper goes into the blue can, bottles and cans go into the brown can, and food scraps go into the green can. Even with the multiple bins and options, there are still challenges ahead to reach the Zero Waste goal. How... Continue Reading

Eileen Lang celebrates her 30th anniversary with Delicious!

This year, I celebrate my 30th anniversary at Delicious! Food has always played an important role in my life: growing up, I was in the kitchen every day.

I managed a meal shifts, keeping everything running smoothly. After graduation, I waitressed at Victoria Station in Greenbrae.  My coworkers’ best friend was the daughter of... Continue Reading
