With the holidays quickly approaching, Gourmet’s Market has launched a comprehensive new holiday catering menu. The restaurant, a destination for East Tennessee foodies for the past 36 years, now offers both traditional and formal gourmet meals for Thanksgiving and Christmas events.
Chef Adam Tyler created each of the dishes that make up Gourmet’s Market’s holiday catering menu. He believes the menu offers something for everyone.
“The holidays are special,” Tyler said. “When you have the chance to spend time with family and friends – people you may not get to see very often during the year – who wants to spend the day cooking and worrying about the food?
“We want people to focus on their loved ones during the holidays and let Gourmet’s Market handle the food. We can do traditional meals like your grandma used to make, or – if you prefer – we can do your favorite comfort foods with a modern twist.”
Gourmet’s Market opened in 1978 and quickly built a large following of customers who enjoy its creative cuisine. The restaurant has become so popular that Tyler recently launched a major expansion project that will upgrade every aspect of the restaurant.
“This week we finished the renovation of the kitchen,” Tyler said. “We bought new equipment and completely reorganized our food preparation area to make things more efficient.”
In addition to the kitchen renovation, Tyler hired 12 new employees (including servers, cooks and managers) and will install 30 new seats in the dining room in early December.
The complete holiday catering menu is available online at www.ShopGourmetsMarket.com. The deadline for ordering Thanksgiving meals is Monday, Nov. 24 at noon and the deadline for Christmas meals is Monday, Dec. 22 at noon.
Gourmet’s Market is located at 5107 Kingston Pike in Bearden (across from Nama and Shuck’s). The restaurant is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 8 am. until 3 p.m..
