11 Jul LUX Catering & Events Tastings – a boutique catering experience!

Whether you are working with a boutique catering and event planning company (like LUX Catering & Events) or not, tastings (or taste tests) are a common part of the catering and event planning process. Almost all caterers provide either paid or complimentary tastings as part of the event planning process, allowing there is still plenty of time between when you start your event planning relationship with your caterer and your event. While it's unlikely, if your caterer doesn't offer you one there are several important reasons why you should request one or choose a caterer that offers one. While each company has different policies or experiences with their tastings, at LUX Catering and Events we see our tastings as an integral component in the road we share with our clients in the event planning process and consider our tastings the pre show of our boutique catering experience that will culminate in their stunning event! Here is what you can expect from your boutique catering experience when working with Utah's premier caterer and event planner  as well as why all catering clients should request a tasting before they book a caterer.

23 Jul Celebrate National Hot Dog Day with Gourmet Hot Dogs!

It's National Hot Dog Day and we couldn't help but think more about that American staple, the quintessential summer menu item - the hot dog! Culturally imported from Germany to early America, the hot dog was sold as fast and cheap working class lunches off street carts in large cities. Over time, the simple yet yummy treat became associated with summer, baseball and Americana. There is no definitive knowledge of how the hot dog got it's silly name; many instances of the word duo referencing this form of sausage consumption can be found in publications dating back to the late 19th century. As the hot dog spread across the country, variations invariably sprung up to match the unique flavor demands of each region. How many hot dog varieties can you think of for each part of America?

12 Feb Lux Catering and Events New Menu Sneak Peak

We had a fun tasting last week at the Lux Catering and Events offices featuring some of the new items we are considering adding to our menus this spring! Our chefs knocked it out of the park with a long list of delicious and exotic recipes. The purpose of this tasting was to explore dishes we could offer as small plate meals - imagine having a meal where you got to try a small sampling of handful of delicious and appetizing dishes!? This not only allows us to further customize an intricate and flavorful menu but it also allows our clients to enjoy a flavorful journey as they enjoy our food. Here is just a sampling of the items they prepared last week and which you may soon see on our upcoming new menus! Moqueca: Moqueca small plate tasting at LeCroissant catering and events

12 Nov Corporate Art Show Event featuring Lux Catering and Events

We had the pleasure of catering and being a part of an art show organized by one of our corporate clients featuring several local vendors, including Lux Catering and Events! Our inspiration when decorating the event was the fall harvest season, in particular invoking the feelings of warmth and comfort. In order to achieve this, we decorated with natural woods and greenery, autumn squash & pumpkin, rich colors, and bathing candlelight. 2014-11-12 12.53.24-2
