This time of year, you can’t help but take a minute for the senses. In Spring, you look forward to the sweet scents of flowers, herbs and fresh vegetables!
Cuisine & Company Catering looks forward to warmer weather, too, as Colby and Trish, our catering and pastry chefs, start to prepare the raised garden beds, located on the grounds of our 11,000 square foot commissary. In the fall, we plant kale and other cool weather vegetables for garnish, seasoning, and cooking. Our delicious home-grown garden vegetables and herbs are incorporated into every menu possible! Fresh naturally grown produce like crunchy cucumbers, colorful sweet peppers, and several different varieties of tomatoes are just a few of the ingredients in our zesty gazpacho and chopped green salads. Fresh aromatic herbs like basil, cilantro, rosemary, and thyme are included in nearly all of our marinades, sauces, soups and salsas.
We are very excited to see the fruits of our labor enjoyed by our wonderful customers. Keeping up with the garden requires precious time, energy, resources, and hard work. We take comfort knowing where our food comes from, and that it is fresh and delicious. We support our local farmers and we are proud to be a member of Buy Fresh Buy Local Hampton Roads. We know with all of the delicious and savory menu items to choose from, it may be difficult to decide, but feel assured, Cuisine & Company strives for freshness, taste, and good food in every bite. So enjoy the Spring! Enjoy the freshness!
