San Diego Catering – Organic Catering for Sporting Events
The annual Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon took place in San Diego on May 21, 2009. Featuring hundreds of runners and a full 26.6 mile marathon, it is always an outstanding success with Eco Caters being one of the major sponsors representing San Diego catering. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon is trying to be as green as possible and using organic catering is just one step they have taken in that direction. The VIP dinner took place in the San Diego Hall of Champions and featured an exquisite organic catered menu including tray passed hors d’oeuvres, three different food stations with an assortment of beef, fish and vegetarian main dishes; dessert and fresh coffee. The hors d’oeuvres consisted of fresh cucumber cups with mango, chili, preserve lemon and chive, spicy apricot chicken skewers with marjoram red pepper yogurt and a delicate seared ahi with orange and grapefruit slaw.
The first station had a rustic italian braised beef brisket with a fresh spinach salad featuring an apple cider vinaigrette and green beans. The second stations featured a pan seared pacific fish with crispy capers, lemon cous cous and broccolini. The vegetarian station consisted of a grilled vegetable polenta lasagna with house made ricotta and mixed greens. The night ended with a delicious dessert of apple cobbler with freshly made whipped cream and hot, organic, fair trade coffee and tea.
Eco Caters has been a major sponsor of the Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon for 2 years now because of our offering of fresh organic catering. Organic food, health and athletics all tie in very well together so this should be a lasting relationship for future events to come. This event helped us make our mark in the San Diego catering world, and many athletic organizations have been attracted to the idea of how healthy we are.
