Moving the Kitchen!

One of the signs of a growing business it the need for more space. We hit capacity in our commercial kitchen about a year ago. Finally, the stars aligned and we have made an agreement with the Nectar Tasting Room to move into a shared space with them, becoming the exclusive caterer for that space and re-locate to a more centralized location. We are very excited about this move and it will provide some significant advantages for the both of us. We will be supplying Nectar with a made-to-order appetizer menu and that will increase the options for their wine tasting experience. It puts us in a downtown prime location and helps us serve our clients better. Our normal on-site operations will continue and we will continue to grow and reach out to more folks in the community providing Spokane with the finest catering services available. Thanks to all of you for your support and come see us at Main and Stevens for a taste of some very fine wine and a bite of an amazing appetizer.

Weddings

Weddings are unique creatures. No two have ever been alike and no two will ever be alike. Consequently, when Just A Couple Of Moms Catering begins preparations for catering a wedding we consider these three things first:

The Bride and Groom – We want to find what suits their personalities, tastes and particular culinary desires.
The Venue – Decor, formality and location dictate a standard that helps us define a menu.
Time – What time of year and what time of day. A summer dinner wedding is certainly going to require a different menu than a November afternoon wedding.

Taking all of these factors into consideration is our first step in planning a menu for a wedding. We have found it impossible to provide a cookie cutter program where brides can go to a menu and choose two from column A and three from column B. We like to meet with the couple, determine the parameters of their desires and design a menu created specifically for them.

No two weddings are ever alike and at Just A Couple Of Moms Catering, no two menu’s are ever alike. We would be happy to consult with you about your upcoming wedding, free of course, arrange a tasting, also free, and see if we can help you create that wedding day meal that you have always dreamed of. It is our desire to become part of the memory of your very special day by providing food that your guests will remember for a lifetime.

Holidays

We have learned over the years that even though June/July/August are months crammed with weddings and parties the one weekend we can count on for a breather is 4th Of July. It seems that the great American tradition of barbecue and boats makes it a free time for caterers… And on behalf of all caterers I want to thank you. We need the time to sit down and although we would rather be productive its nice to relax. Happy 4th to you all and have a great time at the lake, or the cabin or whatever you choose to do this holiday season.

Cheese, cubed or sliced?

We have quite a controversy brewing here at Just A Couple Of Moms. The powers that be, (me and my husband) differ on how to serve cheese in our bountiful cheese display. One of us, and in fairness I will not tell you who prefers what, prefers that we slice the cheese for the displays, the other likes the cubes. The pros of both are that the cubed cheese looks nicer in the presentation, it stacks and falls with artistic wonder. The sliced cheese is much easier to eat and fits on a cracker. The cons, how do you eat a cube of cheese off of a cracker? Then again, sliced cheese sticks together and makes it harder to grab. If you go to your facebook page you can offer your opinion. We would really like to settle this once and for all. One of us is longing for bragging rights!

Nectar Tasting Room

Over the past three years we have formed quite a wonderful bond with Josh Wade and the Nectar Tasting Room. We supple all of their cheese and meat trays as well as cater a number of events there each month. In July – September we will be providing dinner for a Group-On event called Wine-Down Wednesday’s. Check out the Group-On site and sign up for a great evening of wine and food. We also do a number of individual events like engagement parties, graduation parties and wedding receptions. If you have a special event coming up please consider using the Nectar Tasting Room. It is a unique and fun experience and we know that you will have a great time.
