A Culinary Crafts Welcomes Paralyzed Veterans of America’s National Veterans Wheelchair Games!

By

Just in time for the July 4th holiday weekend, we have this AWESOME event that we did recently at The Tower at Rice-Eccles Stadium to welcome the sponsors for the 2016 Paralyzed Veterans of America's 36th National Veterans Wheelchair Games!  What an amazing event and we had so much fun kicking off this competition which has been taking place in SLC all week long!  Check it out! CC_ParalyzedVeterans3 CC_ParalyzedVeterans What a turn out!  We loved being able to host for such a great group of people.  Plus, we had so much fun with the sports themed event! CC_ParalyzedVeterans2 Of course, we served stadium favorites like popcorn!  But we put a Culinary Crafts gourmet twist on it.  We served gourmet flavors like White Chocolate Peppermint, Bacon Bourbon, and White Chocolate Blueberry! CC_ParalyzedVeterans4 Aren't the floral centerpieces fun?  Plus, we created some sports favorites at the "Lollipop Station" that were easy to eat on the go so guests could easily mix and mingle through the event.  First up?  These BBQ Wing Bites with Blue Cheese dressing that were delicious! CC_ParalyzedVeterans5 We also served Mini Corndogs with Ketchup and Mustard and Pretzel Bites with Cheese Sauce.  YUM! CC_ParalyzedVeterans6 Of course, we didn't stop there!  We also had Crab Cakes with Creme Fraiche and Utah Beef Chuck Sliders with Beehive Cheddar, Angry Onions, and Fry Sauce.  Seriously, so yummy! CC_ParalyzedVeterans7 And no Culinary Crafts event would be complete without some action stations!  First, the 'Dodger' Dogs Hot Dog Bar! CC_ParalyzedVeterans8 Next, the 'Yankee Stadium' Nacho Bar.  Over the top yummy, I'd say!  Mmm... CC_ParalyzedVeterans9 This is one of our guests's awesome Nacho Bar creations.  We love action stations that let people create their own dream eats with the best quality ingredients! CC_ParalyzedVeterans10 Another fun creation we served were these 'Milwaukee Brewers' Pulled Pork Parfaits - and just like the sign says, parfaits aren't just for breakfast anymore!  These were a crowd favorite, for sure! CC_ParalyzedVeterans11 Our house made gelato was another "fan-favorite"!  Perfect for the warm summer night and a great way to round out this awesome meal!  Mmmm... Culinary Crafts loves being able to give back to our local community as well as national organizations like the Paralyzed Veterans of America who do such great work for the heroes who have given so much to our country!  We hope this inspires you to celebrate the holiday with a spirit of gratitude and honor - as well as enjoying the day with joy and freedom!  Happy 4th, everyone!
