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”…

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.

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.
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.
A CULINARY GATHERING TO REMEMBER!!
Some say that making a difference in this world one needs to start from within. This is exactly what the amazing company of Savant Homes Inc. is doing, making the difference by having fun building a strong team that can enjoy and be passionate on what each one does; and what better way than a gastronomic gathering workshop!! ...drinking, smiling, learning, laughing, eating & cooking were amongst the main ingredients!!
Amazing Wedding Day with Angel & AJ
This incredible wedding took place in an amazing place in Denver. A place with so much intriguing history; there are tales of ghosts in the 3rd flood. Spooky!!! But this day we where there to be part of an amazing celebration of love an adventure!!
GREAT LUNCH FOR A WEDDING
This catering this lunch was such a great adventure. It always feels like a road trip going up to this amazing Park. This was the first of its kind. We very rarely have a request for a lunch in a wedding, so we where up for the challenge of course. =D
It All Starts with a Precise Vision Of Your Dream.
This was such a magnificent day. Everything came together as well as a true family recipe that leads you to an amazing experience. The team that this two amazing lovers put together is one that I wish we could be together for many more adventures.
Thank to every team member that help make this special day an amazing one. We are forever thankful.
Bringing Food & Love with Family and Friends
