Culinary Capers Catering was a winner at The Special Event 2011 Gala Awards at the annual Special Event Conference and Trade Show in Phoenix, Arizona. Company CEO Debra Lykkemark accepted the Gala Award for Best Off-Premise Catered Event at the Gala Awards Ceremony on January 28th.
Special event professionals from throughout the world gathered in Phoenix for the international Gala Awards’ black-tie ceremony, honouring the finest work in special events worldwide.
Culinary Capers’ winning entry for Best Off-Premise Catered Event was for Shaw Communications’ Hospitality Suite at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. Over eighteen days, 5,500 high profile VIP guests enjoyed custom-designed menus highlighting regional and Canadian ingredients. In two on-site kitchens built specifically for the Games, our team prepared 130 individual catered experiences for all day entertaining.
“We are honoured to receive this prestigious Gala Award,” said Debra Lykkemark. “2011 will mark Culinary Capers’ 25th year in the off-premise catering business and it is extremely rewarding to be recognized for our continued hard work. I could not be more proud of our talented team’s commitment to excellence in creating delicious food and event experiences for our clients.”
