French Macaroons

By | A Kitchen Like No Other, Culinary Crafts Marketing Foodies, Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides | No Comments

People often wonder how new trends develop in creative fields like culinary arts.  Culinary artists look to many different places for inspiration, and one sure place to find it is the classics.   A prime example of a classic that has caught on in the United States is the french macaroon.

Don’t let their unassuming appearance fool you.  These jewel-like cookies are a perfect storm of complex textures, clean flavors, and brilliant colors.  The macaroon has gained favor with food enthusisasts due to the combination of a crisp, smooth – bordering on ceramic – finish on the outside and a chewy, sweet center.   Culinary Crafts is excited to offer this delicate treat in every color and flavor imaginable, adding a subtle delicacy to any event.

New Ideas for Utah Catering

By | Ask Mary, Culinary Crafts Events, Culinary Crafts Marketing Foodies, Every Day Life at Culinary Crafts, Sharing the Love -Vendor and Client Relationships | No Comments

One of the most exciting parts of doing research and development for our catering company is traveling to the coasts (both east and west) for inspiration!   International Caterers Association presented a Day of Education: Design, Trends, & Resources on Monday, August 17th. Produced and presented by Good Gracious! Events and Jay’s Catering, at Jay’s Catering in Orange County, CA. It was a full day of information and resources presented in an entertaining and fun way. Very interactive. These Regional Education Days (RED) are held at different locations throughout the year. This is a great way to stay informed and connected.  These are some of the great ideas we brought home to Utah!

Culinary Crafts’ Foodies!

Kami & Keith, putting their heads together

So who’s behind the great Culinary Crafts marketing you see all over the inter mountain west?   Well….it’s us!  

Keith Westerberg and Kami St. John, of Flourish Art & Design. We’ve been working with Culinary Crafts since 2001 and are responsible for their photography, branding, graphics and marketing style. A note about their food shots. All the photos you see are from actual Culinary Crafts events. We never use stock photos in CC’s marketing.  Hard to believe, but true….their food looks fantastic and tastes even better.

A little bit more about us….We are confirmed “foodies” through and through. We love to grow our own vegetables, cook and eat.  As contributors to their blog, we’ll share juicy tidbits about Culinary Craft’s marketing and public relations activities, and occassional tales of our own food adventures.

Have a great day – Kami & Keith, the marketing foodies

And for dessert, Culinary Craft’s……

2009 Wedding Show

By | Culinary Crafts Marketing Foodies | No Comments

 Hi bloggers –

In case you didn’t make it to the 2009 Wedding Show in Salt Lake City, we thought you might like to see some photos we took of the absolutely gorgeous Culinary Crafts booth.  Shimmering with gold linens,  the  presentation featured beautiful table settings, an assortment of delicious small plate appetizers and desserts,  and a totally cool (pun intended) ice sculpture table top with fresh flowers. Enjoy the show!
