New Classic Catering

Home / BBQ Catering / New Classic Catering

Over the years, I have learned a thing or two about cooking. I consider myself a home cook, not a chef, and that attitude is reflected in my dishes. I specialize in comfort cooking with modern updates to the classics. If you are looking for Dover Sole Meuniere followed by some Saint Honoré, then stop reading, call me and we can go try these dishes together somewhere else. But if you are looking for tasty family style dishes that are universally appealing to party crowds, then you may have stumbled onto something here.

The menu items on this page are a collection of my favorite dishes that I serve to my family, friends and catering customers on a regular basis. If you would like to incorporate any of these items into your BBQ menu, let me know, but unfortunately most of these dishes revolve around me so they are not available when I am out of town or otherwise indisposed. Four to seven day’s notice is generally needed to properly prepare. Or you can make an entire catering menu out of this selection as several customers do! At any rate, take a look around and let us know if we can be of assistance.

Chicken Piccata – sauteed chicken breast in a delicate lemon sauce

Chicken Florentine – sauteed chicken breast with a creamy garlic sauce over tender baby spinach – very popular even with people who don’t like spinach, but that is probably because of the cream the spinach is steeped in.

Jalapeno Chicken Salad – I got this recipe out of a popular foodie magazine – it was the first place winner for that month’s contest – and it has been a winner ever since. Great served with crackers, pita bread, crostini or rolled up in a flour tortilla.

Curried Chicken Salad – this was the second place finisher and it was terrific too, but you have to like curry.

Waldorf Chicken Salad – walnuts & apples

Sage Rubbed Chicken with Spicy Peach Glaze

Apple & Sage Roasted Chicken Quarters

Chicken Parmesan

Chicken with Poblano Cream Sauce

Chicken Marsala – Marsala wine and mushrooms really make this dish.

Roasted Lemon-herb Chicken Quarters

Grilled Chicken with Parsley Lemon Sauce – I reach for this dish when I want a light meal that still smacks of comfort food.

Spicy Paprika Rub Quarters

Chicken Gumbo

Grilled Chicken Quarters with Garlic & Rosemary – it really makes a difference when you rub the garlic and rosemary underneath the chicken skin and that is what I do here.



Lightly Peppered Beef with Au Jus and Horseradish Sauce

Grandma’s Meatloaf – if your grandma overcooked her meatloaf, then this is not hers. This meatloaf is succulent and generously covered in that ketchup/mustard/brown sugar coating.

Swedish Meatballs with Worchestershire Cream Sauce

Asian Meatballs with Hoisin Sauce

Atlanta Brisket – it gets its name because it is braised in Coca Cola.


Sage & Garlic Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin – handsdown one of my favorite pork dishes, so flavorful with a corriander, cumin, garlic, thyme rub.

Italian Braised Pork

City Ham – Mustard and Brown Sugar Coated (carved or uncarved)


Garlic & Rosemary Leg of Lamb (or Lamb Chops)

Fish and Seafood

Shrimp and Grits – there are a good number of variations on this dish; this is the Charleston version.

Baked Fish Filet with Citrus, Garlic and Parsley Sauce – your choice of fish – orange roughy, salmon or tilapia.

Baked Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce



Buttermilk Leek Tart

Tomato Pie – I grow tomatoes and basil in my organic home garden and if in season, this is probably where your ingredients will come from.

Bibb Salad with Basil Green Goddess Dressing – (if you were alive in the 70’s, you probably remember Green Goddess Dressing. This is the original recipe with a touch of anchovy paste.)
