From funky speakeasy’s to an upscale arcade, let Zeffert and Gold help you create an awesome holiday party in Baltimore that will leave your employees counting down the days until next year.

Since we design custom menus we can work with you to create a holiday menu that will reward your guests for all their hard work this year.

Arcade: The saying age is just a number is one that rings true especially during the holidays. Why not host your holiday party in Baltimore at an arcade? Your coworkers will appreciate any company outing that involves skee-ball and a delicious Baltimore catered menu.

Museum: Hosting your holiday party in Baltimore at a museum is a fantastic way to combine food and entertainment. There are so many unique museums in Baltimore that your guests will appreciate the company holiday party being at a venue that they can explore.

Speakeasy: Take your holiday party in Baltimore down memory lane by hosting it at a speakeasy. These fun and nostalgic venues that are a tribute to the 1920’s Prohibition era, are sure to be a unique venue for your guests.

The Best Baltimore Team Building Event

Baltimore Crab Cake

Want to make your next corporate function the best Baltimore team building event? How about a “chopped” style crab cake building demonstration and competition? Yes, we are a fan of the Food Network’s popular show, and wanted to bring a Chopped style catering event to Baltimore. We did an event Monday evening at the Top of the World, at Baltimore’s World Trade Center for The National Association of Trial Lawyer Executives. This was an amazing team building event that had everyone excited, entertained, and of course well fed.

Guests were split up into 9 teams, and had the challenge of creating a delicious and award winning crab cake. Members of NATLE span from all over North America, so we didn’t leave them completely on their own to tackle this challenge.  Our Executive chef, Daniel Elardo, gave a quick history and demonstration about how we build our crab cakes. After the demonstration, teams were able to get any ingredients that they wanted from our pantry. They then had 25 minutes to build the crab cakes. After that, our chefs took the crab cakes in the kitchen and broiled one crab cake sample from each group to perfection. After the crab cakes were cooked, we displayed them so guests could enjoy a dinner sampling of their creations and those of other teams. Everyone really enjoyed this event and the fruits of their labor. Helping to make this the best Baltimore team building event, was our friends at Jazzy Blu who played great music for our guests the entire night. If you’re interested in planning a team building event for your next corporate networking event, or would like more information please contact us at 410-944-4481.

Baltimore Catering; Fred and Nicole’s Stunning Wedding at the Maryland Zoo In Baltimore Mansion House

Baltimore Zoo Weddings

What do you get when you combine a teacher with a man who loves buffalo wings? You get the wedding that we had the pleasure of catering this past Saturday. Fred and Nicole tied the knot at the Mansion House at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. What an amazing and special place for a wedding! Guests were treated to a picturesque ceremony at the Zoo’s Lakeside Pavilion. They were then invited to the Mansion house where they were greeted by a penguin and a Flemish rabbit. Along with the Zoo’s animal ambassadors friends and family of the newlyweds were able to dine on delicious appetizers including shrimp cocktail shooters, smoked mozzarella topped marinated mushrooms, brie en brioche and of course buffalo wings among other things. During cocktail hour guests were happy to find out that their table assignment cards were actually Berger cookies! Fred and Nicole had an awesome entrance with their bridal party and then went right into their beautiful first dance. After four toasts and speeches from both fathers, it was time for the main course. Guests were able to enjoy their choice of marinated prime rib, all Maryland jumbo lump crab cakes or Parmesan crusted chicken topped with a basil beurre blanc. After the meal everyone wasted no time getting on the dance floor and enjoying the rest of the night. We wish Fred and Nicole a lifetime of happyness and thank them for letting us be a part of their awesome Baltimore wedding!

Kelly and Ryan’s Fun Wedding at the Cloisters Castle in Baltimore Maryland


Ravens and Orioles Wedding

Kelly and Ryan were one of the most amazing couples that we have had the chance to work with. We met Kelly and her mom at a Cloisters Castle open house last year. We immediately knew that this would be an awesome couple to work with and we were lucky enough to cater their wedding this past Saturday. Kelly and Ryan both looked amazing and enjoyed themselves to the max. They were dancing, eating, and drinking the entire night, just thoroughly enjoying the energy from their friends and family celebrating such an amazing and momentous occasion. Another one of my favorite aspects of this wedding was the hand crafted decorations that Kelly and one of her bridesmaids created. Check out the detail in these pictures. We wish Kelly and Ryan a lifetime of happiness!

Jenn and Paul had an amazing setup for their wedding at the Irvine Nature Center in Owings Mills, Maryland.

Erin and Brian at the Baltimore Museum of IndustryWedding Catering at Museum of Industry Baltimore


Erin and Brian celebrated their wedding overlooking the Baltimore harbor, waterfront and skyline and then went inside for a reception that continued the Baltimore theme. Tables had centerpieces of Old Bay shakers, Berger Cookies, and Utz Crab Chips. These centerpieces weren’t just for display, guests enjoyed all of their yummy contents. After an extravagant cocktail hour guests were treated to a station style menu which had a carving station with chef marinated meats, a pasta station with delicious sauces and house made pastas, and my personal favorite of the stations was the custom designed slider station. The slider station featured miniature sirloin burgers, Kahlua pork sliders with a spicy coleslaw served on King’s Hawaiian Rolls. Guests spent the night eating, drinking, and dancing the night away. As the sign by the guest cards said “You can find your seat here, but your place is on the dance floor!” Erin and Brian had such an amazing wedding and we are thrilled we could be a part of it!

Baltimore Weddings

On Saturday April 5th, Zeffert and Gold Catering had the pleasure to work with Dan and Amanda as they celebrated their wedding with friends and family at the Cloisters Castle in Lutherville. Amanda and Dan had a beautiful outdoor ceremony and then moved inside for dinner and dancing. Guests dined on delicious food (some of which can be seen below), drank perfect cocktails, and danced the night away with family and friends. From the first meeting that we had with Dan and Amanda we knew that they would be awesome to work with, and they truly were. The small wedding details that they designed really set the room off and created the perfect backdrop for their awesome wedding. We wish Dan and Amanda nothing but happiness as they start their life together.
