We were fortunate to have Barry Carlton from Carpe Diem Catering cater our last monthly meeting of the Boise Builders Group – what a treat! While we normally have a pretty consistent crowd, this last meeting was in high attendance.
One great reason to consider food for your next business or networking event: while everyone knows you can get a sandwich tray at any grocery store, when you put forth the extra effort to bring something special to the table your attendee’s will definitely notice the difference!
The quality of food for our evening was outstanding! Delicious shrimp, bacon with avocado lettuce wraps as appetizers, mussels in compound butter were decadent, the mushroom and thyme pasta was exceptional, a very fancy roasted potato tian, and the sausage stuffed mini-peppers were out of this world! I was amazed at the presentation of all the dishes, served hot and fresh right at our meeting place – the stuffed peppers, while seemingly a simple thing, were my favorite.
Most impressive was the way each dish had it’s own unique, yet complimentary flavors; with all the dishes being strong enough to stand alone as well.I quizzed Barry afterwards to find out the secret:
“There’s no real deep secret” , he told me. “It’s basic, good, fresh, ingredients, combined with care in the right way.”
I simply can not recommend Carpe Diem Catering enough!
