The Rooted Door Dinner | May 15 2015 | Sweetwater Organic Farm
Posted on June 12th, 2015 - Comments Off

The Rooted Door Dinner

The Rooted Door is an “experiential dinner series” highlighting a chef’s journey from the food they use “their roots” to the meals they make that impact our lives. This inaugural dinner was hosted by Sweetwater Organic Farm was the creation of PASK Productions and was a charity dinner that gave the guests the opportunity to hear stories, get a sense of the community they live in, and fill their stomachs with delicious food. The dinner on May 15, 2015 featured culinary delights from chefs in the Tampa Bay community: Chef Ferrell Alvarez of Rooster & The Till and Chef Don Pintabona of Locale Market.

Good Food Catering Company had the distinct pleasure of working with PASK Productions to provide front of house service, leadership and logistics support as well as worked with the chefs to provide back of house support. The menu featured a journey through life interpreted using food. Each course included a cocktail and musical pairing going through the four stages of childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, and concluding with present/future. Menu pictured below. Working on this event with such talented chefs as Don Pintabona and Ferrell Alvarez as well as pairing with The Rooted Door was an amazing experience!

Real Wedding: 1920’s Speakeasy Wedding, Powel Crosley Estate, Sarasota Catering
Posted on January 15th, 2014 - No Comments

A beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple took place at the delightful Powel Crosley Estates in Sarasota. This couple took their guest by surprise by transforming rooms and hiding sweets. This 1920’s Speakeasy wedding was one of our favorites, especially when the dessert room was reviled. Judging by the fashion, set up and theme the snazzy couple definitely did this era justice. The cocktail hour was a hit and dinner was pure success. Wedding captured by Your Story By Us.

The couple went with a plated trio entree for dinner, which is nice because as caterers, we don’t see that very often. The plated trio included: a small portion of sauteed beef tenderloin tips, chicken rustica, pan-sauteed mahi mahi, creamy mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus. Dinner was incredible and before you knew it they had a room filled with all the sweets you could imagine. After dancing guests were introduced to a late night snack that offered, Cuban sandwich “cigars” and french fries.

To me, weddings are about the moments. Its a day to call your own and Erica and Mark did just that.
