Our Cool Summer Nights industry event at the Bali Gardens is closely approaching, and we are lucky enough to be working with some of the very best vendors to make this the best (and most delicious) event!  We will be having Stone Brewing Co., Authentic Flavors and Maison catering the event, and the delicious treats of Tailored Sweets and Sweet Cheeks Baking Company.  Planning this event, as well as our delicious tasting with Behind the Scenes Catering this week, has really helped us get our creative juices flowing (and our stomachs growling) coming up with creative ways to cater your next event!

Have you ever watched those competitive reality cooking shows on television and thought that you would be great at whipping up a dish on the fly with some mystery ingredient?  Get your fellow foodies together to have a cooking competition at one of our estates!

Not into competitive cooking, but still want to try your hand at some new recipes?  Hire a chef to come to your estate event to teach you new techniques and recipes to share with your friends and family, and then savor the meal you created!

Plan an around the world buffet, with a dish from each part of the globe.  Want to make it a bit more interesting?  Hire several different catering companies that specialize in different types of cuisine to get more authentic dishes and let your guests choose their favorite dish.

If you haven’t seen the amazing things that are coming out of the dessert world right now, I suggest you check out Tailored Sweets and Sweet Cheeks’ websites right away!  Have a wine and/or beer pairing at an estate with their amazing desserts.  Or have a more interactive event with several vendors with different types of sweets!

The sustainable food movement and farm to table events are becoming increasingly more desired in the event industry.  Our Sebastopol Sanctuary Estate near Sonoma, California has its own pinot noir vineyards, lavender farm, olive trees, and you can create gourmet hors d’oeuvres made with ingredients from the estate’s own garden.

Over the last several years, food trucks have become increasingly popular and serve some of the most mouth-watering gourmet treats that you can imagine.  Chefs can now own their own traveling restaurant on wheels for low overhead costs and serve up their own unique dishes for their ever adoring fans.  Just this past weekend, the San Diego Food Truck Festival took place with 20 different vendors for a day of food nirvana.  Not surprisingly, food trucks have even become a trend at shabby chic weddings. Check out some pictures below from a couple of our favorite wedding blogs, and maybe you’ll be inspired to have one at your estate wedding!courtesy of Green Wedding Shoescourtesy of Wedding Chickscourtesy of Enjoy CupcakesTop photo courtesy of Green Wedding Shoes
