Catered Event Dessert Trends for Weddings and Events on Maui

Catered Event Dessert Trends for Weddings and Events on Maui

A perfect smores dessert for Wedding reception or or catered event on Maui.Since many catered events on Maui are outdoors, is it any wonder summer outdoor traditions are a trend? And why not? Our Hawaii weather is nearly always perfect for outdoor dinning! With beautiful scenery and tropical weather consistenly in low 80’s day and night, everyone enjoys gourmet dining at sunset or under the stars!

Your catered event might range from a simple catered barbecue on the beach welcoming your guests to a cooked to order dinner at your wedding reception with professional staff serving. Whichever you choose, including a S’Mores dessert station sets the tone for a fun event on Maui. With food theme stations continuing to be a common trend in catering, I think we’ll be seeing more requests for s’mores stations at catered events on Maui.

S’Mores, S’Mores and More S’Mores at Maui Catered Events

What better way to let your guests mingle together and get acquainted with each other while roasting marshmallows and building their s’mores. With gourmet catering stations continuing to be common trend in catered events, it’s no wonder the theme extends into dessert. Here are a few ideas on how we do it and what you’ll need for a do it yourself s’mores station.

Gourmet S’Mores Ingredients:

  • Graham Crackers
  • Marshmallows
  • Dark Chocolate Bars (freeze the night before)
  • Kabob Skewers or Bamboo Sticks
  • Heating Source – Fire Pit, BBQ pit or other heating source for guests to prepare their smores

Arrange the above ingredients on a table near the heating source. To prevent the chocolate from melting, freeze the chocolate the night before and set out only during the dessert service. We like to prepare a few skewers ahead of time with marshmellows on skewers placed next to the other ingredients. A few completed S’Mores positioned next to the ingredients will entice your guests to try their hand.Maui catering food stations with dessert including a SMores station.

Combine a S’Mores dessert food station with a chocolate fountain. Add an Ice Cream Sundae Station packed with all the fixings for an old fashioned sunday summer ice cream social with a decadent dessert finish for your catered event on Maui. Start your family reunion gathering or a destination wedding on Maui with a catered welcome barbecue on the beach! Need more ideas for your catered event on Maui?

CJ’s Kaanapali Diner Review

My daughter and I visited Maui a couple of weeks ago and came to your restaurant 3 times. I just wanted to thank you for your willingness to meet our gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free requirements. We loved being able to eat out safely and wish we had a CJ’s at home! I just wrote you a stellar review on Trip Advisor. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer!

CJ’s Maui Restaurant Review

Wonderful for a Sunday Brunch since you can order breakfast until 11:00am! Had a ‘custom’ 3 ingredient omelette (I chose mushrooms, feta and spinach) with nicely crunchy on the outside and soft inside home potatoes, yummy. Hubby had the pancakes with fresh fruit! These are light fluffy slightly sweet batter pancakes, not those heavy bland ones (OK I admit it, I had to have a few bites of his breakfast…) Service was fast and friendly :0). The menu is EXTENSIVE, we live here and love it!

CJ’s Deli and Diner Maui Restaurant Review

Fact: CJ’s Maui onion soup will melt your face off it’s so good. Best I’ve ever had. It gets 20 stars.
Alas, it’s not on the menu every day… But when my fiancee and I went this past summer and were lucky to meet Chef CJ in person and mentioned that we had been thinking about the onion soup since the last time we visited two years earlier, he was kind enough to put it on the next day’s menu. We went back the following day and ordered it, and it was amazing, just as we had remembered. Another fact: the onion soup at CJ’s is better than the onion soup at Mama’s Fish House (and at like 1/4th of the price). Really. It’s that good. Part of me wants to reverse engineer CJ’s onion soup recipe, quit my job, and make millions selling onion soup to the mainland masses! (or: CJ, wanna make a deal?)
I think that the loco moco gravy is made from the same goodness. So that’s great too. The potato salad is tasty as well.
The to-go lunch plate is respectable.

Maui Chef CJ Prepares Mushroom Soup for Kaanapali Restaurant Guest

On a previous visit to Maui, I had the most delicious mushroom soup at CJ’s Deli and Diner in Kaanapali. When I arrived in Maui this week, I emailed the restaurant and asked what day they might have the soup. The owner and chef, Christian Jorgensen (CJ), promptly replied even though he was on vacation in Vegas. He gave me a number to call to check on the soup of the day. Then when he returned to Maui on Friday, he emailed me to let me know he would have the soup for me on Saturday. When I got there, he was so friendly and the soup was even more scrumptious than I had remembered. I really appreciated how valued he made me feel as a customer.

Good Morning, My wife and I spent last week in Maui. Your early bird special was the best. After we found you, we ate breakfast there every morning. You had two regular coffees that we just loved.

CJ’s Maui Restaurant Customer Comments on CJ’s Private Luau in her Blog

Aloha, Just wanted to let you know that this post was up last Friday and it will be included (linked) with all of our Hawaii properties. Thank you both for excellent service. You made our trip to Maui very memorable! Feel free to comment on the post. It’s always good to have additional information and your input.

Aloha, We were in to see you many times during our stay last month in Ka’anapali, couple of things for you:
Need to order some more of your CJ’s roasted Kona Coffee. I see it’s not yet on your website, only the Maui Coffee Co. stuff. We ran out last weekend and are having withdrawls, please help!! Need 2 bags urgently!!
Secondly, your claim about having the best corned beef hash on the island. I think you’ve understated this because it’s the best I’ve had any where in the world! And that covers a lot of ground as I’ve been to every continent multiple times. Just the best anywhere, period!! Don’t suppose you would have that for delivery to Indiana would you? Maybe by the pound(s)?
Great people and even better food, Mahalo CJ’s. Seriously though, please let me know about that coffee. How do we get some ordered and shipped to Indiana?

​CJ’s Deli & Diner Rocks! Been here several times while visiting Maui – each time we tried different meals and each time we LOVED the food, service and atmosphere. Only suggestion would be to provide regular dinner napkins along with this paper type – because we’re messy!

Aloha and Mahalo from Detroit
