Welcome Summer With A Barbecue to Remember!


Culinary Crafts LOVES a good barbecue.  I mean, we love ALL food, don't get me wrong, but there is just something about a good barbecue that really just makes our day.  As we say goodbye to May and hello to June, we here at Culinary Crafts would like to welcome the summer months by posting some pretty amazing BBQ inspiration - starting with this event!  Check it out! AoCF_RanchEvent Utah weather can be so unpredictable (as I'm sure you all have noticed!)  But who says you can't grill on a rainy day?  Not us! AoCF_RanchEvent2 We really wanted to play up the BBQ feel with a western inspired decor theme - so we used red bandanna linens and our recycled wine glass votive covers.  Plus, our servers “cowboy-ed” up too and passed the guests delicious local brews! AoCF_RanchEvent3 One of our fine food offerings was our Smoked Fresh Utah Corn on the Cob with a variety of flavored butters.  This Chipotle and Utah Sea Salt Butter was just one of the many choices.  Yum! AoCF_RanchEvent4 Love the festive vibe of this party! Such a fun event! AoCF_RanchEvent5 Another one of our dishes?  Chef Torched Ancho Rubbed Grass Fed Utah Beef Tri Tip served with Farro, Arugula, and Dried Cherry Salad! AoCF_RanchEvent6 And, of course we wanted to take this event over the top, so we roasted a whole pig on site!  This is one of our favorite BBQ show stoppers! AoCF_RanchEvent7 Last, but certainly not least, we also served up Charcoal Grilled Rocky Mountain Trout with Utah Green Apple Relish and Roasted Utah Summer Squash and Zucchini and Pulled Snake River Pork Shoulder with Ryan Crafts’s Blood Orange BBQ Sauce, House-Made Cornbread Muffins, and Local Greens, Utah Apricots, Plums, Pistachios, and Goat Feta with a Ginger Chili Pepper Dressing.  AH-MAZING! AoCF_RanchEvent8 Plus, planning one-of-a-kind activities like bull riding and lasso lessons with a bona fide cowboy always takes your event to the next level!AoCF_RanchEvent9 AoCF_RanchEvent10 What's a barbecue without awesome music?!  May we suggest The Ugly Valley Boys?  You won't regret it! AoCF_RanchEvent11 And, of course, always save room for dessert!  We made a selection of Homemade Southern Style Shortcakes with Fresh Local Peaches, Rhubarb and Blackberries with Vanilla Rum Cream AND we had a Old Fashioned Float Station with Jackson Hole Sodas.  So good! We love planning ALL kinds of events but barbecues will always be one of our favorites! Happy planning, everyone! Check out more Salt Lake City, Park City, and Utah County catering at!
