04 Oct A Spice of Life Voted BEST CATERER in the 2012 Boulder County Gold Awards
A Spice of Life is proud to announce another award to add to our ever-growing list of accolades. We’ve been selected once again as the Best Caterer in Boulder County by the readers of the Daily Camera in their annual Boulder County Gold Awards. Thanks to all who voted and for the continued support this wonderful community has shown A Spice of Life – we’re so grateful to be your first choice in catering + events.
On a recent weekend, two hundred people were taking in the mountain serenity of Estes Park while enjoying fine dining on white china plates. At the same time, miles away, a wedding reception was wowing the guests with a carefully orchestrated experience with live music, creative flower arrangements, artisan cocktails from the bar and gourmet cuisine. It’s all in a day’s work for the crew at Spice of Life catering, who don’t let off-the-grid conditions keep them from delivering a flawless event. ‘Our mission is to exceed expectations 100 percent of the time,’ explains president and general manager David Rubin. ‘Our event coordinators work with our guests from the beginning to create the complete experience. To a guest, an event might seem like it lasts six or seven hours, but it’s often the product of 12 months of planning.’ A typical event might include anything from an inflatable jumpy castle to a zip line to a live band. One of the most popular events recently are the Farm to Table series, Rubin says. ‘We have presented six dinners in the past year, teamed up with The Farm in Lyons. We pick the vegetables and the edible flowers that day, and use local Haystack Mountain cheese, locally sourced pork, and guests can bring their own wine. A group of strangers come for dinner, and at the end of the evening people are hanging out among a bunch of new friends.’ 5541 Central Ave., Boulder, 303.443.4049; 5706 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder, 303.444.3452; aspiceoflife.com
