It’s finally time to talk about the most delicious part of our business, Whim Catering. Consider this your seat at the Chef’s table, we’re giving you a taste of the back of house fun. There are so many components and personalities that make up our award-winning Catering team that we will continue to highlight throughout the course of our blog. But first, we thought it was necessary to start with the “ingredients” that make up the foundation of the Whim Hospitality Culinary team.

1 Cup Innovation:
Being an industry leader is a common goal and theme across all of our departments. We are constantly formulating unique flavor profiles, presentations, and unexpected techniques to create an extraordinary culinary experience.

4 Quarts of Great Tunes:
No kitchen is complete without a great playlist, ours is no exception. On any given day you can expect an eclectic mix of anything from Britney Spears to the Allman Brothers. (Stay tuned for footage of these epic jam sessions.)

2 Parts Collaboration:
One of the many benefits of offering multiple services under our Whim umbrella, is the ability to easily collaborate. Our catering staff is able to utilize the best in rentals and florals to create amazing presentations and add to the overall guest experience. From initial brainstorming to event execution, we are able to rely on members across our entire team to deliver a truly memorable production.

3 Teaspoons of Training:
Our team is composed of many years of experience and world-class training. Each member brings their unique skill set to the table and is able to contribute and shine in their own way. We prioritize hands-on training by taking the time to teach new skills and techniques across all levels of our culinary team.

5 Heaping Tablespoons of Passion:
There is nothing better than getting people excited about food. Delivering and exceptional product requires a passion that is hard to come by. Our team aims to construct meals that evoke emotion and create a lasting memory with every bite.

1 Pinch of Playful Banter:
It’s no surprise, every kitchen comes with a little sarcasm and fun. The Whim culinary team is truly a family- complete with occasional teasing, jokes, laughs, and ultimately, a sense of comradery unlike any other.

Stay tuned as we unveil more about our catering team and other departments in this continuing We Are Whim Blog Series. Until then, we know all this kitchen talk is probably making you hungry. So, for some added fun we are dishing up the full tutorial from Chef Rob on the Vietnamese street food, Banh Xeo. Enjoy!
