We have strayed from our blog a little bit this year, but we are BACK! and will be updating you on the regular (as the kids say). There is a new, sexy website under construction, a new web-based proposal and booking program that is going to make our clients sing at the ease of planning events with us, our social media game is on fleek (still in?) and our food has never been better! Viva 2016!
2016 has been a big one for Blue Heron, which is how we like it. This year started for us being official caterers of the Taste of the NFL and sending a team to the official Superbowl 50 tailgate party-- we had the most amazing time and it was only the beginning. When you are a company that is 28 years young, you sometimes think you may have seen and done it all, but much like life, that is never true. With a major Presidential Campaign going full force, the Olympics in full swing and a host of artists deaths that have affected us all, there is a collective feeling that we need comfort while still finding great reasons to celebrate so much beauty in the world. At Blue Heron, we turn to our kitchen. This year we have solidly rededicated ourselves to producing a level of food on par with the best of the best in the Bay Area-- which as we all know, sets the benchmark for great cuisine across the country. Our deep held belief is that there is something extremely noble about feeding people during the major events in their lives. That belief drives us daily. We have spent lots of time with our hands in the soil this year, keeping us grounded (yes, pun intended); bringing in the "best tomato ever" or a "you can't believe this plum until you have a bite" is our daily inspiration to cook food that creates memories for you, our clients and friends.
And here we are, August 2016. We have been reveling in wedding season creating so many unique events with some truly wonderful couples (we have the best clients, plain and simple). And yet, as these glorious days of late summer are beckoning us outside and to the BBQ, or to create the perfect garden cocktail, we are also thinking about the holiday season. Jeff da Chef Rosen, our fearless VP and food guru has created some scrumptious Holiday menus that we are booking for NOW. I have created a winter wonder of cocktails that you can add on to any party, and all packages have incentives to book by September 1st (who doesn't love an incentive to party?). Not to pull you out the swaying summer breezes, but you don't want to miss out on a Blue Heron Holiday-- Trust Me. Menus and incentives will be popping up on Facebook each week, so hop on and start drooling. You can always email or call us, and we will joyfully send them your way too. Keep and eye out for more fun blogging, for our monthly pop ups at the Cannery Cafe, and for all kinds of innovation as we get more and more inspired! Cheers to the rest of 2016!
