Rice Eccles Game Night Suites!

As you all may have heard, Culinary Crafts has partnered with Rice Eccles Stadium and we are so excited!  One of the super cool things we get the honor of participating in is catering for the Game Night Suites!  We love a good game of football, but couple that with a fabulous suite and Culinary Crafts food?  Well, that’s heaven right there.  Check out one of these fantastic nights that we attended recently!

Of course the place was decked out with the U’s signature color, red!  And, how fun are those balloons?  Definitely got the crowd ready to have fun at the game!

We decided to serve game day classics like Kettle Chips, Buffalo Wings, and Mac & Cheese!  Not to mention we had a Hot Dog bar too!  YUM!

Love the suites!  They are spacious enough for a large group and you get a bird’s eye view of the whole field!  Pretty awesome, if you ask me!

These fans bleed red!  I just have to say that I love it when the guests coordinate with the room.  :)  Go Utes!

Of course, it’s not a party unless you have treats!  Cookies, Lemon Bars, Brownies, and Blondies…  Mmmm.  Perfect!

We love our partnership with Rice Eccles and all of the new, exciting events we get to be a part of!  Happy Game Night, everyone!

Repost from Ashlee Elizabeth Photography

We here at Culinary Crafts got a delicious surprise in our inbox this week – a GORGEOUS wedding from Ashlee Elizabeth Photography that we just couldn’t resist sharing!  It was such a perfect day and these pictures are so fun, I think you are going to LOVE it as much as we do!  Check it out!

“I am in love with this wedding! Allison and James planned a spectacular day at a gorgeous ranch home just between Heber and Park City. Everything about this event was well planned and perfectly executed…the weather even cooperated! These two are a big deal within the horse training community, but more importantly they are a big deal to all of their friends and family who traveled from all over the country to be with them. The food, catered by Culinary Crafts was presented beautifully and tasted fabulous. The party was filled with laughter and tears, a wonderful tribute to the couple! It was just a joy to be a part of this day! Congratulations you two!

Container Store Grand Opening!

ContainerStoreGO

I know that we here at Culinary Crafts have mentioned that we are in the works of creating some pretty special stuff for the Grand Opening of Utah’s first Container Store location – but we wanted to remind you that it is coming NEXT WEEK!  We are so excited for this amazing store to open its doors in Salt Lake City at the Fashion Place Mall and can’t wait for the Grand Opening festivities!  Added bonus?  A fantastic elfa Space makeover giveaway AND 10% of the Grand Opening weekend’s sales will be donated to a local favorite of ours, Ballet West!  Ballet West has an extra special place in our hearts because our very own Christiana Bennett is a principal ballerina in the company AND an intern of ours.  We love her and Ballet West dearly!  So, make plans to check out The Container Store and buy some awesome wares that will spruce up your home or office and donate to Ballet West at the same time!  Happy shopping everyone!

Today’s Instagram of the Week keeps in theme with Culinary Crafts‘s time with the ICA Culinary Learning Journey!  Sadly, today is the official end of the journey and everyone will be leaving our great state to (hopefully) share the love of the AMAZING culinary landscape that we have here, but it truly was a great week of fun, food, and friends.  With that in mind, this pic from Vida Tequila (follow them on Instagram at @vidatequila) is a great shot of the group enjoying fine food at Black Sheep Cafe and tasting top-shelf tequila from Vida Tequila!  It was a stellar week and we are so happy to have SO many great local artisans, establishments, and purveyors that make Utah a true culinary destination.  And thank you Vida Tequila for sharing this fun photo!  Remember to add the hashtag #culinarycrafts to your posts or tag us at  @culinarycrafts for your chance to be next week’s Instagram of the Week!  Happy posting, everyone!

ICA Culinary Learning Journey: Part 2

CLJPart2

After the whirlwind of activities in Part 1 of the ICA Culinary Learning Journey, Culinary Crafts‘s Mary Crafts-Homer didn’t stop there!  She packed in EVEN MORE awesome local food, artisans, and restaurants for everyone to enjoy!  We still enjoyed amazing lodging at The Grand America but we also will spend the last night at The Sky Lodge to finish out the trip; we’ve eaten at even more DELICIOUS local establishments such as Black Sheep Cafe, The Beer BarHigh West Distillery, and The Park City Culinary Institute; sampled tasty wares of more fine local culinary artisans like Amano Chocolate, Creminelli Sausage, Vida Tequila, One Sweet Slice, Real Salt, High West, Squatters Brewery, and Wasatch Brewery;  did Utah “musts” like a scenic drive through Provo Canyon, City Creek Shopping Center, Utah Olympic Park, the Alpine Slide, Zip Line, Main Street Park City, The Canyons‘s Autumn Farmer’s Market, a Cache Hunt, and Skeet Shooting at Red Cliff Ranch; AND toured Culinary Crafts‘s very own Tasting Room in downtown Salt Lake City complete with a three course, plated Autumn breakfast – and as if that weren’t enough, the ICA Culinary Learning Journey group were the very first guests to tour our BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW building in Pleasant Grove where we held demonstrations on making fresh mozzarella with Chef Marco, checked out the full service bakery showcasing a ‘bread pairing’ primer, and created our signature house-made gelato!  We also served up a Culinary Crafts favorite of a Utah BBQ lunch at the Utah Olympic Park AND a family style dinner at Red Cliff Ranch!  WHEW!  I don’t know how Mary does it, but it has been amazing!  Sadly, the last full day of the tour is today, but we have had SO much fun so far and are so thankful to have been able to show off Utah to all of these wonderful people!  Thank you to the ICA Culinary Learning Journey – It has been AMAZING!  Happy Thursday, everyone!
