Duo Catering & Events is known for crafting their inspired, innovative menus from only the best, local growers, and resources, and for always producing delectable seasonal fare. Amongst Duo’s vast group of loyal followers (many who also enjoy Duo’s phenomenal Dinners-to-Go service) there has been a outcry for a product line of some of their heavenly sauces, and other preserved fruit and vegetable items that they have long been producing, to capture the best of each seasonal treat in the height of their nature-ripened perfection. The time has finally arrived! Duo gave a sneak peek of some of their products in development (Yum!) so stay tuned and visit the Duo website or follow Duo on Twitter for updates!
For the latest updates on what’s fresh and fabulous at the market, check in on Twitter to see what Duo Catering & Events is sourcing this season from the best local/regional farms–like these perfect, sweet peaches from Regier Farms . . .
Later, being grilled up by Duo for a delectable Summer dessert. Yum.
Spring is here and with April showers come May flowers and a bounty of organic fruits, vegetables, and gorgeous greens to plan your menu around. Remember to ask your caterer what local farms are growing during the season of your wedding. Below Ashley and Brian of Duo Catering and Events regularly visit our local Farmer’s market and tweet photos with yummy tips for preparing seasonal harvests.

For the past 8 years Armando Martinez, owner of Alegria by Design has been producing and hosting (along with a group of generous co-hosts and sponsors – see below) fabulous holiday celebrations for the entire Santa Barbara event industry. The theme this year was “A Bolly Holiday”, bringing vibrant Bollywood style with a holiday twist to the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History auditorium. The gorgeous images by TakeOurPhoto.com tell the story of this fun-filled evening better than I can, so I will let you enjoy! It was certainly an evening to remember!
