New Culinary Artist On The Raise In Fort Collins
A few days ago, Chef John M. Verderame, a talented Chef and one of the teachers at Front Range Community College gave us a call to see if we could help and be judges for his “Garde Manger Culinary Final Practical Exam”.
StoryOn & Juli y Juan’s Kitchen PODCAST
About a month ago Seth Silvers a good friend or ours approached to us to see if we wanted to adventure into the booming of his amazing company; Story On. Juli & I believe that his idea is dead on amazing!! Helping small companies approach their clients with their story. We all have a story, and Seth is into something huge here. We got very lucky to have this great opportunity and we look forward to see where it goes.
WE RECEIVED A RECOGNITION FROM THE CITY OF FORT COLLINS FOR SUSTAINABILITY!!
Last year a great friend and awesome photographer (John Robson) was in one of our events and realize that we had very sustainable practices in our catering company and he suggested to get in touch with his good friends from the City of Fort Collins Organization called ClimateWise. So we did, we met for coffee and signed up to be part of the businesses minds that are shaping our sustainable world here in the Community.
LUX LIFE MAGAZINE REACHING OUT
Last year, we got a call from a company that focuses on finding new talent around the world and helping some of the emerging companies by doing some research about what are the new trends and what are they doing. So we talk to them and then filled a form to participate. We had no real idea what was all this about so we just follow through and life continued… a few months past and then suddenly we got an email saying that we had been selected as “Best Catering Company in 2018” for the “Lux Life Magazine Global Wedding Awards”…
Nothing call our attention as a new challenge to mage magic with new artist. This past January 31st we traveled to Berthoud where we had our first appearance and collaboration with another set of artistic hands in the world of Breweing beer. Alongside John & Whitney, owners of City Star Brewing Co., we both joined our artistry and performed for 50 happy epicureans the delightful art of pairing. What an amazing and joyful time!!

Never Had Not Made It…
In the catering world you always hope everything is going to work perfectly and things are just going to roll into it’s own place… but the reality is that they never do. Here is where experience, planning, professionalism and love to your art comes in handy to be able to say the famous food phrase… “Never Had Not Made It”.

Street Food Tuesday's Keeps Rolling
On June 5th we jumped out of our third straight month of Mexican Cuisine and we started traveling into other directions of street flavors in our world. We decided that Greece was going to be our next destination. We also decided to make things a little simpler and since it's summer, we thought "Why not do it outside?" At 95 degrees, it was a hot day for sure!! =D
How?, Why?, Where? What? Art?
What an amazing day was this last May 19th. Not only did we got to express our love for the culinary arts, but we also got to share it... and not only share the flavor, but also the story that went behind the passion, and creations of some of our dishes.
Tostadas is what happened!!
This little community gathering is growing each month, and we could not be more grateful with everyone that has attended!! From a little simple idea of selling tacos it has developed to a walk around the world taste of streets food. So far we have had plenty of Mexican Street Foods, but in our June 5th appearance we are taking a flight to Greece!! and experience GREEK STREET FOOD from our perspective!!
This Past Week We Got The First Taste of Street Food Tuesday!!!
As promised a great collaboration between Juli y Juan's Kitchen and The Articulate came together to create a small Pop-Up Taco Station that we hope to see more and more people. This will happen the first Tuesday of each month and we will be bringing street food recipes from all over the world to change the flavor and flair of your lunch time!!
Date Night Cooking Classes Were a Hit!!!
Have Fun, Share, Love... and Eat!!
A few days ago, Juli & I, gave our first cooking class at Ginger & Baker's Teaching Kitchen. Since we move to Fort Collins, we have been trying to create an environment where we can teach. It is our passion to share our love for the Culinary Arts, and our love to preserve the knowledge of good food. We believe that "in order for Life to bless you with more knowledge, it is imperative that you share the one you have acquired by Life.", for us it is some sort of trade we play.
Amazing Food & Whiskey Pairing
I have to state that Juli & I did not like whiskey when Joan & Jamie approach to us to open up the possibility of creating a Whiskey paring with our food. I have to say that in our mind this presented a challenge beyond our believe... Juli & I looked at each other and said... "How are we going to come up with a menu that paired with a drink that we do not know anything!!" haha... so the adventure began.
Catering Windsong Estate Bridal Show Event
When people believe magic can happen... magic does happen. This amazing event was put together by one of our favorite venues, Windsong Estate Event Center. We had no idea what to expect, as this was our first time to be in the 3rd Annual Unveiled Bridal Fashion Show.
