Planning a Seasonally Fresh Party Menu

One of the reasons Rasberrys Catering does not create standard catering menus is because 1. every client is different and 2. we always use local, organic fresh and in-season whenever and wherever possible.  When you give Rasberrys creative freedom to just make good food, you will be amazed with the results.  Our food is fresh, flavorful and hearty. 

Here are some suggestions on ways to incorporate fresh seasonal produce in your party planning with (or without) Rasberrys Catering in Sun Valley.  Whether its a dinner for 8, rehearsal dinner, wedding or corporate summer picnic, a fresh menu always gets applause.
