Recap of Summer 2011

I cannot believe it is already the middle of October. We were so lucky to be so very busy this summer I haven’t been able to blog since July! So many wonderful things have been happening around here it is going to be hard to fit it all in one post! Over the past three months we have been a part of 28 wedding receptions, really fun company BBQ’s, countless corporate orders that kept us very busy through the week.

It was great to visit new venues and be able to make new connections within the business. Thank you to St Josef’s Winery, Mt. Hood Bed and Breakfast, The Big Food Lodge, The Ainsworth House, Northstar Ballroom, Pacific Crest Grand Ballroom, Bridal Veil Lakes, The Joseph Mattey House, Postlewait’s Country Weddings, Wine Country Farm, and many others in the Portland area who opened your doors to us and shared your beautiful spaces! 

We have already started to book for next summer which is so exciting. We enjoyed every single wedding this summer and cannot wait to be a part of even more special days in the future!

With catering there isn’t really a slow season for us so we are gearing up for the busy Holiday Season. We hope to be a part of fun holiday parties and luncheons this year with some fun new recipes. Stay tuned for our menus and updates in the coming months!

Wow July already?! It seems as though we have been a little slow at writing our blog. There is so much to update you on. The biggest thing we have to share with you is change; changes all over the company that we think are going to be a huge step in the right direction.

We have hired on some GREAT new people to help us out in the kitchen. They see and understand our vision and it's great to see everyone coming together to make everything happen. Especially when we have 8 different orders going out at lunch, everyone just works together to accomplish what needs to get done. Waitstaff, Waitstaff, Waitstaff-All I can say is that we have an awesome front of house crew as we head into wedding season. I am impressed by each and every waitstaff that is on our team; their personalities and attention to detail will be a huge part of our success this summer.

Our website!! Can you believe the change from our old website? We are so pleased with our new website design from Light Speed Designs. Byron spent a lot of time creating our vision for our new website and really made it come alive. We hope that the photo features and informative features makes life a little easier when deciding your menu selections. : )

Last but of course not least what is new with our food?! We have some great new menus out: Summer 2011, 2011 BBQ menus, even the spring menu has some really awesome new items on it. One of my personal favorites is the BLT Crostini-a great sandwich classic in bite size with an awesome twist with a garlic aioli sauce. We are also going to start to premote a "fine dining" service for our clients, stay tuned for updates on that, it is sure to impress any guest of yours!

BBQ BONANZA!
