San Diego Catering company, Eco Caters, works with AlvaradoInstitute of Skin Care
Another organic and very sweet holiday party in San Diego was thrown by the Alvarado Institute of Skin Care and Eco Caters provided the San Diego catering. The all organic and fair trade menu consisted of Banana Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganache (gluten free and soy free), Flourless Chocolate Tart with Champagne Raspberries (gluten free, soy and dairy free), and Chocolate Dipped Strawberries (gluten free, soy and dairy free). San Diego catering, Eco Caters also served organic and fair trade coffee from Bird Rock Roasters, the local organic roaster in San Diego with the best coffee. Alongside the coffee was hot mango black tea and hot cocoa made dairy free. The menu items were altered from our typical recipes in order to accommodate requests for gluten and dairy restrictions which we were happy to do. San Diego caterers, Eco Caters, knows that San Diego is a very health-conscious market. We often get requests for diet restrictions and modifications and we are always happy to meet the needs of our customers. It is fun to try different versions of our recipes. Because we are involved in all organic catering, people trust us with their health request, which we enjoy doing for them.
The night was cold so the warm organic beverages and bite sized sweets were perfect for Alvarado’s clients who came in to buy some products, get a massage and have a quick treat. The ladies at Alvarado wanted organic catering because their products are all natural and they offer organic options as well. They also try to minimize waste and be as eco-friendly as possible. They also requested the gluten free and dairy free items because of the effects of those ingredients on the skin. Gluten free catering is quite easy as long as you are willing to substitute alternative ingredients. Eco Caters was a natural fit for the event and we hope to do more organic catering for them in 2010. We also hope that as other companies in Southern California go green they also request organic catering for their next event.
