Oakland’s Southern Home Cooking Restaurant, Dorsey’s Locker Announces They Have Been Selected to Cater Two Prestigious Holiday Dinners

Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — With the holiday season in full bloom, holiday catering is at its busiest. Traditionally catering to small groups and larger events of more than 100 guests, Dorsey’s Locker in Oakland is slated to cater two prestigious holiday dinners within the next two weeks.

Dorsey’s Locker was selected by the Oakland Housing Authority to cater “Holiday Splendor,” the group’s annual dinner for seniors, on Dec. 15. More than 200 guests are expected for a dinner of roasted turkey and dressing, fresh collard greens, candied yams, salad, and peach cobbler for dessert. Dorsey’s Locker was selected by a committee of 10 from a select group of caterers.

They were also selected to cater the Stagebridge Theater Company’s annual holiday luncheon on Dec. 16. Stagebridge is the nation’s oldest seniors’ theater company in Oakland. More than 150 guests are expected with a menu focused on roasted turkey and dressing, and southern baked ham.

“In our efforts to find a caterer for our June wedding, my fiancée and I visited numerous caterers to sample their food. When we visited Dorsey’s Locker we knew we found the perfect one. The food was absolutely outstanding. My fiancée and I, not only ate all of the greens, but also drank the broth from the greens that were left on our plate. Brides-to-be, bring a silk straw to dignify yourself on your big day when you too, drink the green broth. Cuteness has its place, but so does Dorsey’s Locker,” says Melanie, an area newlywed.

Hopping Johns comprised of black eyed peas and rice, Chitterlings and New Orleans style seafood Gumbo are all popular items requested as part of local New Year’s Celebrations. They are the preferred caterer to a number of events including Foothill College Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.Luncheon and Commencement, Albany High School Hall of Fame, University of California Berkeley, Law Students of African Descent socials, and more.
