Repost from SLPC Bride – Date Night: Culinary Crafts October Pop-Up Restaurant

By

REMINDER: Culinary Crafts Pop Up Restaurant is the Friday, October 23rd!  This is not only an amazing 10 course meal, but a fundraiser for The Green Urban Lunch Box - and you better get your tickets fast.  We only have 6 left!!!  As if that's not awesome enough, we couldn't help but share this fabulous article Salt Lake/Park City Bride featured on their blog too.  Check it out! REPOSTED FROM http://www.saltlakebrideandgroom.com Reserve your seats for this 10-course harvest feast at The Tasting Room this Friday night.
BROWN BUTTER ACORN SQUASH MOUSSE ON DRIED APPLE AND SAGE CRISP WHAT: This summer we told you about Culinary Crafts newest venture: a series of one-of-a-kind, one-night-only, pop-up restaurants. Following the success of their sold-out August and September pop-ups, founder Mary Crafts-Homer, Chef David James Robinson, and their team of food + drink aficionados are back this month hosting a bountiful 10-course autumn feast. The evening is a date-night must for foodie couples or couples still in search of their wedding caterer (taste it to believe it!). The exclusive dining experience will be held at The Tasting Room, Culinary Crafts loft-like event space featuring exposed brick walls and large glass windows, in downtown Salt Lake City. If you’re looking for an urban wedding venue in the heart of SLC, with top-notch catering facilities to boot, look no further. The October pop-up restaurant is co-hosted by The Green Urban Lunch Box. A portion of all ticket sales will go to support the local nonprofit group’s programs, including urban agriculture and providing hunger relief. Created by Crafts-Homer herself, this month’s menu showcases the best of Utah’s fall harvest and will include fruit and veggies from The Green Urban Lunch Box gardens. Menu highlights include Mesquite-Grilled Rocky Mountain Red Trout with The Green Urban Lunch Box Apple Chutney, Sous Vide Citrus-Marinated Snake River Tenderloin of Beef, Utah Amano Chocolate Espresso Pot de Crème with Utah Pistachio Biscotti,  and so much more. Crafts-Homer will play hostess for the evening, and will guide guests through the culinary, multi-course journey. Chef Robinson will also be present to share his knowledge, as well as Shawn Peterson, executive director for The Green Urban Lunch Box. Eating well and doing good for our community? Now that’s something we can get behind. WHERE: The Tasting Room, 357 West 200 South, Suite 100, Salt Lake City WHEN: Friday, October 23, 7-10 p.m. HOW: Space is limited, and only a few tickets are left!

New Venue: Land Cruiser Heritage Museum

By

Culinary Crafts had the honor of catering Toyota's “Ever Better Expedition” Tour recently and got to check out a new venue at the same time too!  The Land Crusier Heritage Museum, located in downtown Salt Lake City, is a unique, urban venue setting and although it may be subtle on the outside - make no mistake your guests will be blown away when they walk through the door.  Check it out!

LandCruiserMuseum5

This wide open warehouse space boasts classic exposed brick and showcases the ultimate back-drop, a beautiful, mint condition collection of Land Cruisers.  Spanning across the history of the Land Cruiser from the late 1950's to the present, it is a sight to behold and will make for an absolutely unforgettable event experience.

LandCruiserMuseum

This place is great for any type of event and has a seating capacity of up to 140 for sit down dinners and over 200 for reception style events.  And how fun is it that your guests can check out some AMAZING land cruisers during the event too!

LandCruiserMuseum3

For this event, this venue was a perfectly versatile setting to create a fun and casual cocktail reception as guests toured the museum - plus we served a variety of local Utah beers, which the guests loved!

LandCruiserMuseum6

LandCruiserMuseum7

After the cocktail reception, we invited guests to enjoy an elegant formal plated dinner menu.  How great does this place look?

Culinary Crafts made sure to keep guests full on delicious eats!  So, we served an array of local foods from grilled Rocky Mountain red trout to toffee cakes with Utah grown pistachios.  Yum!

We loved the opportunity to cater such a lovely event at such a great hidden gem of a venue!  If you'd like to host an event at The Land Cruiser Heritage Museum, contact Culinary Crafts for more details!
