Eco Caters, Los Angeles Catering Division, joins forces and jingles with Tejon Ranch Staff at Audubon Center at Deb’s Park in Pasadena
We were lucky to have another clear day in Southern California for this gathering of professionals and enthusiasts. Tejon Ranch staff contacted our Los Angeles Catering crew to serve their lunch meeting followed by a meet and greet with members of the chosen venue. The venue being Audubon Center at Deb’s Park. If you want to learn more about Audubon, an environmental education and conservation center, you can read our blog or go to their website at http://ca.audubon.org. This blog is about Tejon and their gathering.
Tejon is a nearly 270,000 acres making it the “largest continuous expanse of private land in California.” It is almost as large as the City of Los Angeles running at 422 square miles. The land was founded in 1843. Many partnerships have occurred throughout the decades. The most recent being a plan to build an entire, self-contained, sustainable community consisting of about 23,000 homes, along with schools, medical facilities, police and fire stations.

As mentioned this event was a two part deal. Our Los Angeles Caterers came in shifts to be able to cover all the details. There were about 25 guests for the lunch meeting. Upon their arrival our Los Angeles Catering crew had set up the Organic Coffee station. The host brought morning snacks and teas. A great idea to conserve the wallet. While in the meeting your Los Angeles Caterers tip-toed in to setup the lunch buffet. This was a hearty meal of our Wild Arugula Salad, Porter Marinated Tri-Tip with Green Peppercorn Sauce, and Pan Seared Sea Bass with Cali Crystal Beurre Blanc. The sides were simple and of course filled with flavor. They chose Roasted Weiser Farms Potatoes with Marjoram and Thyme & Grilled Farmers Market Vegetables.
After the luncheon the clients decided to end the meeting rather then continue it. They mingled in the courtyard where your Los Angeles Caterer set up the bar and stationary hors d’euvres. There were about 25 more guests expected to attend the cocktail party. They snacked on Chef’s Choice Cheese Display, Hummus Trio with Tabouli, Olive Salad, and Grilled Flatbread. Along with these items to pick at were mixed sliders. Your Los Angeles Caterer whipped up Curry Chicken Salad, Grilled Eggplant and Smoked Salmon.
Towards the end of the event the guests gathered back in the meeting room for final information and a big thank you song form a few of the attendees. Just before the big send off, one of the singers approached our bartender stating she wished they could actually sing. Then it began! By the time the four singers got up in front of their fellow enthusiasts they had three of our Eco Caters staff in toe with them. They sang a version of Little Drummer Boy which had verses of thanks to all who contributed throughout the year to their cause. This was such a fun experience!! Especially for me who was behind the camera recording every tune.
