Arizona Taste Catering

When you’re vacationing with a large family or a group of people, it’s not uncommon for someone to come up with the idea to throw in a party. Or maybe the whole point of the vacation is to celebrate a special occasion. The vacation could also be a corporate retreat. In all these cases, what you have is a large number of people and a special event that requires planning, food, and drinks. In other words, you’ll be needing a catering service. Arizona Taste Catering gives catering a new meaning. Their services cover everything you’ll need to make your birthday party, anniversary, bachelor party, or corporate retreat.

 

Catering with Style

Catering is more than just offering food. That much is true, but it still doesn’t mean that the quality of the food should be any less than the service itself, which is where Arizona Taste Catering excels. Both the food and their service are of the highest quality. Your event becomes a unique occasion when it gets the Arizona Taste Catering treatment. And that includes the menu as well. No two events are the same; you can choose the type of food to be served, and you’ll get a menu that suits your budget as well as your guests’ tastes.

 

Full Service

One thing about Arizona Taste Catering that makes any event a breeze is that they take care of all the details—from planning to providing the tables, chairs, linens, centerpieces and even the flatware and glassware. But that’s not all. They also provide a fully-staffed food service. If the event is to have drinks, bar service is also available. This also applies to transportation and entertainment. In short, whatever the size of your event, you can trust Arizona Taste Catering with it. Their office is located at 6736 East Avalon Drive, Scottsdale, Arizona. You can reach them by email at info@arizonataste.com or call them at 480-947-8844.

Upscale Italian Dining

This is not your mainstream, strip mall Italian restaurant. As proof, this restaurant serves Carpaccio Di Bue, a coveted Italian dish that includes thin slices of raw filet mignon with tomato basil, capers, olive oil and parmigiano. It’s a dish that’s hard to get right, so savor it at Tutti Santi.

Carpaccio is just one of the dishes offered on the antipasti freddi (cold appetizers) menu.

The main course menu offers all kinds of meats and pastas: veal medallions pan seared in a Port wine served with oven baked scalloped potatoes and seasonal vegetables; mussels and calamari sautéed in spicy tomato sauce served on a bed of spaghetti; and pasta with bolognese meat sauce and parmigiano.

What Italian meal would be complete without wine? Tutti Santi has you covered. The wine list is extensive.

Snooze, an AM Eatery in Scottsdale

Snooze an AM Eatery serves up a very different kind of breakfast—a breakfast with a purpose. Snooze was founded in 2006 in Denver by brothers Jon and Adam Schlegel. The restaurant’s motto is “It only takes a moment to make a difference.” To that end, one percent of sales goes back to the community in the form of a donation of in-kind goods and services. Employees regularly go out into the community to cook pancakes, maintain school gardens, volunteer at food banks, and clean up beaches.

Eco-Forward Thinking

Snooze an AM Eatery in Scottsdale also strives to be environmentally friendly. Snooze composts and recycles close to 90% of its waste. Each month, employees, called Snoozers, learn about a different aspect of living an eco-friendly life. In Colorado, Snooze was recognized by Colorado Environmental Leadership Program Gold Level, Certifiably Green Denver, and Climate Wise for its green efforts.

The Menu

But enough with the green talk. Snooze AM Eatery serves up breakfast classics such as eggs benedict, hashes, and pancakes (there’s a whole menu devoted to them). You can stick with classic buttermilk pancakes or go for something different such as pineapple upside down pancakes, sweet potato pancakes, and blueberry Danish pancakes (buttermilk pancakes topped with blueberry coulis, sweet cream, and almond streusel around a center of lemony cream cheese filling).

If you’re looking for something on the lighter side, Snooze an AM Eatery in Scottsdale has a whole menu devoted to health-conscious dishes such as yogurt parfaits, quinoa breakfast bowls, and a lox spread with herbed goat cheese, sun-dried tomato and caper relish, and a hard-boiled egg.
