The GOODS from Lazy Gourmet
Vancouver, BC | As event planners, entertainers, and hosts rejoice in the soon-to-be arrival of Thanksgiving and the holiday season, Vancouver’s long-standing caterer The Lazy Gourmet unveils a new Fall/Winter catering menu. Turkey confit sliders, kale Caesar salad, spicy cornbread, miso ling cod with spaghetti squash, and mousse cups with peppermint bar are just some of the unique and creative dishes offered this year. “At The Lazy Gourmet, we are always looking to reinvent classics and favourites, but still echo the type of nostalgia people love during the feasting season,” explains Kevin Mazzone, General Manager of The Lazy Gourmet. “Our dishes can be enjoyed at intimate functions, large holiday events, or corporate lunches. There is something to tantalize everyone’s taste buds. We’re excited to see what this season, especially with early Thanksgiving, will bring.”
