We recently had the honor of catering a Retirement Party for one of our longtime clients. As the menu will attest, the firm pulled out all the stops!

The early evening party was held in the firm’s offices: the reception area served as a wine & beer bar and the main conference room was used for the buffet items. Our staff passed wine and hors d’oeuvres to the guests, covering both floors of the firm, making sure everyone was tended to.  The menu features elegant and inventive items perfect for an upscale early summer event.

In our sixteen years of business, we’ve been welcomed into countless homes ~ including some of the most beautiful in the Valley.  This past weekend, we returned to one of our favorites in Paradise Valley overlooking Camelback Mountain. We did an similar event at the same residence late last year and were so excited to be asked back. It is truly an awesome party house!

At this particular residence, our hostess asked that we keep all of our equipment, prep work, and cooking out of the house so as not to interfere with the party. No problem! We used the garage to create an on site kitchen ~including stove, oven, and warming cabinets ~ to create an amazing meal. 

The party guests ~ a group of 50 guests from Europe ~ arrived by bus and were greeted by passed hors d’oeuvres and wine. The guests took their seats as the sun set and dinner and dessert were served.
