Did you feel Autumn touch down for a few days this week? Summer isn’t quite gone, but the light is changing and wisps of cooler air are breezing in. Transition means a lot to those of us who work with and love food. What and how we cook is totally dependent on the seasons. Hopefully you got to sample some of the amazing heirloom tomato varietals we had at the pop up and at the Cannery Café (and a couple of you had them on your wedding menus). We bought upwards of 60lbs at a time, a true bounty! But summer fruits are winding down and we are starting to look at those wonderful veggies that live beneath the surface, the root vegetables. So our creative juices transition a little closer to the earth, grounding us in the process.
We are also transitioning from full on wedding mode as a lot of you tied the knot this summer! We really do want to thank so many couples who had Blue Heron cater their special day. There were weddings of all shapes and sizes; keeping up with our clients creative ideas is inspiring! There were guests and grooms and brides from all over the world. We served Luaus and Indian Feasts, and utilized our local food shed like never before. Don’t worry our dear couples of Fall and Winter, we are still all in and looking forward to creating even more culinary magic.
We might be bringing sweaters to work and moving a touch slower on the cooler mornings, but we are still going strong in what we do best; creating menus and memories for our clients. This doesn’t always have to be a grand affair so we are expanding our corporate and mid-week offerings to include a broader clientele. We can do breakfast drop offs that have a little whimsy and will brighten up your office. Chef Humberto and his team in the kitchen have become amazing at creating yummer sandwiches and endless salad options for gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and meat eaters all in the same group. We’re pretty impressed, and we haven’t even talked about the entrees options at lunch. If you are planning for your company, give us a ring or email us and let us take it from there. We see no reason that a Wednesday can’t be as special as a Friday.
