Chateau St. Michelle Summer Concert Series

It’s the time of year again… Time for the sun-soaked, fun-filled, wine-fueled Chateau St. Michelle summer concert series in Woodinville, Washington. 

This is our third year participating in the series as an onsite vendor, and we couldn’t be more excited for this summer’s all-star line-up.

With heavy hitters like John Legend, Santana, Blondie, Diana Krall, and the Goo Goo Dolls, this year promises to be even more spectacular than the last.

Of course, we aren’t just excited about the music though… We’re also jazzed about the food! This summer you’ll see the return of several fan favorites, as well as a few saucy new additions that we think our festival goers will just love.

Our favorite returning items include the zesty  Southwest Salad, our umami-rich truffle fries, and of course the Mediterranean Wine Box.

This year, the box comes stuffed to the brim with delicate cured meats, a variety of rich cheeses, fresh seasonal fruits, as well as herbed olives and Caprese salad – it also happens to pair perfectly with almost all of the Chateau St. Michelle wine offerings.

New additions this year include Thai hili chicken wings, served with carrot and celery crudite, fresh fruit Sangria mixer (you provide the wine), as well as an assortment of festival snacks such as malay seasoned peanuts and caramel popcorn.

Our Favorite Food Moments of 2016 [Mouthwatering Pictures]

new-years-champagneHappy New Year Seattle!!

Like most people, the beginning of a New Year gets us thinking about the one that just passed. Though the world seems to be in a somewhat constant state of turmoil, we take comfort in the fact that no matter the circumstance – food has the power to transcend boundaries and bring people together. 

As a company, we took back at 2016 and remember the pleasure of working with some amazing clients, the excitement of expanding our kitchen in SoDo, the humble honor of winning Best of Western Washington’s Wedding Caterer of 2016, and the true joy of improving our craft and experimenting with new flavors and cuisines.

Bombarded as we are by upheavals worldwide and widespread negativity in the media, we believe that now, more than ever, it is important to remember those truly remarkable things that happen everyday. Keeping that in mind, we’ve compiled below a short montage of our favorite food moments of 2016.
