Fresh, Innovative Thinking Deserves Fresh, Delectable Cuisine
The San Francisco Bay Area continues to be a hubspot for innovation, progress and forward thinkers. Recently, we had a chance to serve Palo Alto’s finest leaders at a corporate catering event for the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR).
Great minds came together to discuss pressing economic trends while enjoying the best catering in the Silicon Valley. The night’s debates and topics of discussion were enriched by the quality customer service and elaborate dinner menu.
Guests enjoyed a refreshing first course salad made from mixed greens, sweet pomegranates, dried figs, heirloom cherry tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, dried cranberries and savory balsamic vinaigrette.
Following the first course was a decadent entree consisting of fresh succulent shrimp and juicy marinated lamb on a bed of flavorful lemon grass pilaf, evenly braised brussel sprouts and rich saffron cream.
The idea of masterminds coming together while enjoying our catering services makes what we do all the more important. We take our food seriously and often undergo extensive planning to deliver quality results. For this event, Chef Ryan spent many days fine tuning the menu with Midori Chun, Handheld’s Director of Operations, in order to keep the menu in-line with SIEPR’s 100 person guest list.
Amazing food and an attentive service staff adds to the overall success of any event, no matter how big or small. Offering the best catering in Palo Alto takes hard work, but is one of many reasons we stick to our “farm to fresh” approach. We focus on local and seasonal cuisine that can be cooked onsite in our portable kitchen — yet is located out of eyesight so guests won’t see where the food is coming from. This approach is guaranteed to offer the freshest and tastiest results every time.
Providing a memorable dinner experience for our customers is the heart of Handheld Catering. We couldn’t have been happier to serve an awesome dinner to such a great group of progressive and influential people. The opportunity to work with them makes our job that much more exciting and meaningful — and we would love to work with you!
