Covid Overwhelmed? Trade Trips to the Market and Hassle in the Kitchen for Truly Wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner

Popular event and catering space NOOR can help guests stay safe and avoid the holiday grocery store rush
Published on Oct 30, 2020

Here is your equation: A house full of family that’s been stuck together for six months. Hundreds of games played and another hundred movies watched. You’ve learned to knit, paint, play guitar, and now have a reasonable faculty with Van Gogh and particle theory.  Now add to that planning and preparing Thanksgiving dinner

As Robert Shahnazarian, sales director at NOOR, Pasadena’s popular event space, describes it, “If anyone’s ever tried to make Thanksgiving dinner, it’s at least a two-day process of going to the market to source all of the ingredients along with the holiday rush and all of the food prep the follows.”

But now that burden can be lifted, he says. He has a great solution.

Shahnazarian is focusing NOOR’s kitchens, which were designed and are staffed by culinary masters whose entire raison d’etre is to produce extremely fine meals in quantity at one time for events, on Thanksgiving.

Thus a wide assortment of chef-prepared Thanksgiving dinners from NOOR can be had with just a few clicks on their website,

An array of prepared Thanksgiving entrees and main courses are brought right to your door, accompanied by a number of popular Thanksgiving side dishes as well as individual main-course dishes.

“You will have a full Thanksgiving dinner that is delivered to your home, said Shahnazarian. “And all of the food arrives ready to heat and enjoy. It’s all fresh from our kitchen to people’s homes.

“Between the safety factor of not having to go to the market during the holiday rush,” said Shahnazarian, “and spending a minimal amount time in the kitchen prepping and cooking, the part that you really want is to enjoy the day with friends and family.”

As Shahnazarian also pointed out, “We created three tiers of our traditional Thanksgiving dinner packages.  Each dinner package serves between 8-10 guests and includes free delivery up to 10 miles from Pasadena or pick-up at NOOR.

Our Signature Thanksgiving dinner package includes a whole 12-pound oven-roasted holiday Turkey along with delightful side dishes, salad, vegetables and holiday desserts and is priced at $299.  Each of our Thanksgiving dinner package tiers provides additional main courses and sides including Spiral-sliced ham with honey glaze and roasted prime rib.”

These dinner packages can be paired with beverages offered from our catering platform including a selection of wines and pre-batched cocktails prepared by our resident mixologist.

Shahnazarian also pointed out the affordability of the day, when all the time and energy is factored in.  “We created a simple online ordering system that provides value to our clients for both time and cost.  Our Thanksgiving Dinner packages start at $299 and are designed for 8-10 people, making the per person cost for our Signature Thanksgiving dinner about $35, a real value when considering the quality of the food and time saved shopping and prepping such a large gourmet meal.”

Prices for our individually prepared Thanksgiving lunch packages, popular for employers who want to send meals to their employees working remotely, start at $45 per person with free delivery, and a minimum order of $250.

NOORtoGO offers a range of catering packages prepared by its award-winning culinary team that can be customized to also include hors d’oeuvres, beverages (including bottled water, soft drinks, beer, wine, and pre-batched specialty cocktails handcrafted by NOOR’s resident mixologist).

Dinners and lunches can be ordered  through the  Online Ordering Platform. Package prices begin at $45 per person for lunch, and includes free delivery to La Canada Flintridge, Pasadena, South Pasadena, San Marino, Glendale, Sierra Madre, and Alhambra. Minimum order for both pick-up and delivery is $250.
