Yes it is a beautiful and hot 29 degrees outside and yes it is the middle of July in Calgary. Stampede has just ended and the city is winding down for the summer... So what are we Calgary caterers doing? Why, we are thinking about winter weddings, that's what. And if you are too then you have come to the right blog post.
There is always a way to make the food and the event something to remember and its by putting your personailty into it. Re-working something that people already expect but making it REALLY good....don't just serve syrup with your pancakes...make it Saskatoon Syrup of Kindness made by yours truly.
...we chose the name 'Connie Soeur' for the marching lady of Devour because we loved the play on words from the French word connoisseur but we also love that instead of being a stuffy or pretentious 'know-it-all', Connie is full of whimsy and humour. She is someone who knows her stuff but also doesn't take herself too seriously. And it is this combination of enjoyment and expertise that we thought was the perfect encapsulation of what we do at Devour.
The kitchen staff are adventurous and always ready for a problem solving challenge. Producing restaurant quality food at event sites that can range from a closet-sized laundry room or the dark backstage of the Jubillee Auditorium isn't always the easiest.
Nothing says summer like a Devour charcuterie platter and wonderful cheese board right? Ooh and maybe some delicious lime zest and chipotle pepper popcorn too! Sounds fantastic for say a Friday evening in the summer with a few friends and wine of course. Well, linger on those delicious thoughts no longer as you can have all this delivered right to your deck by simply coming up with a creative name for our Devour Lady.
