FARM TO TABLE

A Spice of Life’s Farm to Table program is an innovative concept in fresh and delicious dining based on the philosophy that community and sustainability should be a priority in every business. We’re excited to offer our clients monthly menus using the season’s ripe vegetables and fruits as well as locally sourced proteins, dairy and grains. Inspired by the flavors of the season, these menus are a reflection of our commitment to cuisine that is environmentally friendly, extremely fresh and of course, always delectable. Not only are the ingredients superior and fresh, but also the program helps our local community achieve economic growth. We believe that sustainability is complementary to exceptional cuisine, and fresh, local ingredients can be a part of your event regardless of the scale.

In addition the monthly menus showcasing seasonal produce and local and often organic ingredients, A Spice of Life also builds custom menus using local ingredients or from specific vendors. If your uncle has a cattle ranch or your farmer friend grows outstanding greens, we can incorporate those ingredients into the menu for your event.

A Spice of Life is also partnering with local farms to host Farm to Table dinners, with the prix fixe menu planned from the farm’s own selection of ripe ingredients picked fresh just before the event. These dinners offer the opportunity to enjoy a farm fresh meal on the farm where the ingredients were sourced.

MENU PROGRAM

Our monthly Farm to Table menus offer our clients the opportunity to delight their guests with seasonally inspired selections created by our chefs using the best local ingredients. We pick peaches at their peak and beets when the season dictates to ensure your event, whether it’s a corporate luncheon or a large elegant affair, showcases the best that Colorado has to offer. If you’re lucky enough to grow your own vegetables, we can incorporate those as ingredients in your customized menu. Choosing Farm to Table menus for your event ensures you’ll be treated to A Spice of Life’s distinctive & creative cuisine paired with our commitment to sustainability.

Dinner Series

Gathering around a table with other community members who appreciate exceptional cuisine and support local community and sustainability can be a magical thing, especially when Chef de Cuisine Pieter Dijkstra is hand-crafting each dish with ingredients he picked himself just minutes before the meal. Our prix fixe Farm to Table dinners take place in the charming scenery of local farms and each course uses the farm’s fresh and delightful vegetables and fruits that are in their peak.
