San Diego Wedding Venue: Wild Willow Farm

Wild Willow Farm is a beautiful San Diego wedding venue for those of you seeking that all-in-one green wedding location.

San Diego wedding catering company organic sustanable wedding ideas venue wild willow farm suzies farm green events caterer southern california catering best - 05When you get married out in the desert, less than a mile from the Mexican boarder one would expect a healthy amount of drinking, bonfires, bridesmaids in cowboy boots, and a lot of hooting and hollering.  Rachel and Andrew’s wedding, which took place at Wild Willow Farm, would have happily met your expectations.  With help of a few local farmers, Eco Caters prepared a delicious, all organic fest, fit for the occasion.

Wild Willow Farm, which is located just a short 15-minute drive from down town San Diego, and less than a mile from the Mexico boarder, is six acres of organic farmland with a passion for growing and educating our community on sustainable farming.  It’s also a beautiful San Diego wedding venue for those of you seeking that all-in-one green wedding location.

Our San Diego wedding catering company is proud to play a part San Diego Roots Sustainable Food Project: “a network of citizens, farmers, chefs, gardeners, teachers, and students working to encourage the growth and consumption of regional food. From farm to fork, we focus awareness and work toward a more ecologically sound, economically viable and socially just food system in San Diego.

By eating locally, not only do you get fresher, better-tasting food, but you also help support family farms and encourage a vibrant local economy.”

San Diego wedding catering company organic sustanable wedding ideas venue wild willow farm suzies farm green events caterer southern california catering best - 06Eco Caters, your all-organic San Diego wedding catering team, used all locally farmed ingredients to create the couple’s sustainable wedding menu.  Produce for the wedding was grown at Suzies Farm (which Eco Caters uses regularly at all of our events), from our chef’s own backyard, and of course, from Wild Willow Farm.   The food our San Diego caterers served was as fresh as could be.  Guests even commented on how crisp, bright, and delicious all the vegetables were, which is something that makes us very proud.  We love knowing that the guests we serve are conscious of the extra care and quality we work hard to put into each and every dish we offer.

Below is the menu our San Diego wedding caterers served to Rachel and Andrew’s friends and family:

Hors D’oevres

Chef’s selection of assorted cheeses with Farmer’s Market fruit and preserves

Hummus Trio with Cucumber Yoghurt, Mixed Olives, and Grilled Flatbread

 

Salad and Asian Station

Kale and Beet Salad with Julienne Carrot and Apple Cider Vinaigrette

Jasmine Rice

Green Curry with Farmers Market Veggies and Mexican White Shrimp

Wild Willow Farm Stir Fry

San Diego Pop-Up Restaurant The Open Air Bistro

Meet Open Air Bistro: the fun, growing concept known as the “Pop-Up Restaurant.”

imageOn a cool evening in the Point Loma Heights neighborhood of San Diego, an outdoor, makeshift restaurant is bustling with laughs, appetizers, and plenty of beer.  What was merely a quiet urban garden just a few hours ago is now an open air, temporary restaurant, just as busy as any other establishment on a Friday night.

The Pop-Up Restaurant phenomenon started back in early 2000’s when talented British and Australian chefs would put together special menus for special, one-time events in local neighborhoods, to show off their cooking skills.  Since then, the Pop-Up Restaurant bug has caught the likes of local San Diego caterers Nick Brune and Adam Hiner, Co-owners of Eco Caters, an all-organic San Diego catering company, with a passion for all things local.

“All the food for the Open Air Bistro was sourced 100% from Herb En Routes urban farm, as well as our own backyard gardens,” says Adam Hiner, Co-owner and chef of the all-organic San Diego catering company, Eco Caters.  “The only outside ingredients for the Open Air Bistro was a local olive oil (Bellavado), and yellowtail that was caught locally the day prior to the event.  We love the Open Air Bistro concept and we can’t wait to do more of them!”

The menu for this San Diego pop up dinner was a simple yet flavorful tomato salad with micro greens tossed with a garlic avocado oil, an
eggplant pared with smoked jalapeño, stuffed squash blossom with a creamy Summer Squash Nage,
 and lastly, local yellowtail tuna with a carrot emulsion and a basil lemon verbena vinaigrette.  For the vegetarians who opted out of the fish our San Diego caterers prepared a grilled cucumber with beets, carrots & brown butter.  For desert guests were treated a refreshing
Cucumber Mint Granita, and our popular Lemon Verbena Panna Cotta.

Over the last few years Eco Caters, San Diego’s all-organic catering company, has grown a passion for urban farming.  Some of the fruits and vegetables they grow in Nick and Adam’s own back yards have been enjoyed on the plates of many of the corporate events and weddings the San Diego caterers cater for.  Over the next few years they hope to expand this into their own locally grown honey, and goats cheese from a few their goats.

Our San Diego caterers would like to give a special “Thanks!” to My Local Habit for bringing a spectacular selection of local beersHerb En Routes for sharing their urban garden.  We purchase lots of produce from Herb En Routes for our San Diego catering events and we love their service and dedication to freshness.  Lastly, we want to give a special thanks to San Diego Photographer Leylla Badeanlou for sharing her photographs.  She did a spectacular job capturing the warmth we all experienced at the Open Air Bistro.  Until Next time!
