The Pacific Northwest is known for many things, especially its food! Our wine, seafood, desserts, and even vegan eats are unparalleled, and what better way to enhance your event here than through our own specialties? Keep reading for ideas you can add to your menu with Wild Currant Catering!

#1: Vegan & Veggie Everything!

Having a meat-free option at your event is almost standard in today’s society, and the Pacific Northwest definitely excels at that! From veggie burgers made with grains (and veggies, of course) to vegan, non-dairy ice cream, the options are endless for your catering cuisine.

#2: Local Wine Selections

Wherever you are in the Pacific Northwest, you’re most likely a drive away from a local winery or vineyard. Washington and Oregon are pioneers in the viticulture industry, so indulging in the local blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, or Riesling are a given if you’re adding a wine and spirit option to your menu.

#3: Seafood Galore!

If you and your guests love seafood or shellfish, you’ll find no shortage of options here in the PNW! Salmon, clams, oysters, Dungeness crab… these delicacies add some much-needed local flair to the menu. Bonus tip: If you have guests who want some fresh eats for a meal, consider incorporating sushi into your menu! Versatile and unique, a standard combination of sticky rice, seaweed, veggies, and seafood (optional) is filling and representative of local ingredients!

#4: Dessert Central

Here in the Pacific Northwest, people get creative with their sweet treats… and catering is no exception! You’ll find no shortage of Marionberry pie and jams here, subtle combinations of bacon and maple, out-of-the-ordinary ice cream flavors, hazelnut creativity, and exclusive chocolatier-ing! 

#5: Refreshments, Please!

Predictable and oh-so-necessary for a morning event or daily pick-me-up, the Pacific Northwest is known for its various blends of coffee and tea! There’s more than just Starbucks to indulge in out here, and if you want to sport the talents of local small businesses and coffee brands, your catering menu is the perfect way to do so.
