The GOODS from Culinary Capers Catering
Vancouver, BC | For over 30 years Vancouver has turned to Culinary Capers Catering for refined cuisine. Now the award winning catering service is about to get even better. Culinary Capers is rethinking traditional corporate catering fare, and on November 1st the company launches a new delivery menu featuring energizing, clean eating, and mouth- watering dishes.
Vancouver’s known as one of the healthiest cities in the world, with its sea to mountain geography, and mild climate that allows a year round active lifestyle. Culinary Capers new menu of inspired offerings will fit perfectly into the city’s healthy lifestyle, and make it easy for office teams to eat very well.
Other significant additions to the menu include a bespoke sandwich + salad bar for guests to customize their lunches, and several additions of gluten-free and vegan menu items.
Research shows that putting an emphasis on healthy food in the office has a positive impact on employee productivity. Good things happen at work when good food is served, workplace culture is improved and employee morale boosted. Forward thinking companies don’t want poor lunch decisions derailing the day. Culinary Capers power bowls offer a nutrient-rich, easy-to-eat master meal perfect for today’s working lunch, where employees often eat with laptops in front of them.
Executive Chef Stewart Boyles and his team have worked tirelessly to elevate the new delivery menu. Says Boyles, “My team and I, take great pride in everything we do, and are committed to delivering exciting new dishes. We are always looking ahead to understand what people like to eat. In Vancouver, people enjoy a healthy lifestyle, and so we aim to consistently give our clients great food that reflects their needs.” Sourcing the very best local ingredients, Boyles is constantly searching for innovative ways to push the Vancouver catering scene to a new level.
In an effort to contribute to a greener future, Culinary Capers worked tirelessly to source environmentally friendly packaging solutions for delivery of the new menu.
The solution was found in tiffins, a perfect sustainable lunchbox used for many years in South Asia. Tiffins are thermal lunch boxes which consist of 3 stainless steel stacked boxes with a carry handle. They are reusable, hygenic, and compact, and keep meals warm and fresh.
