2021 Easter Dinner To Go

As much as I would love to use the old adage that “spring has sprung”, it doesn’t quite seem or feel that way in Vancouver. The temperatures are still cold, it is beyond wet, and either I have completely missed the cherry blossoms, or they have yet to make an appearance. That said, I am hoping for some warmer weather. I mean, April is just around the corner and the Easter long weekend is a couple weeks away! It would be nice to see some sunshine, am I right?

Reflecting On Our 2020

First and foremost, we thank you for your loyal support this year. ‘The year 2020 came with several unexpected and unanticipated surprises’ is probably the biggest understatement of the year. With the events that affected us all both locally and globally, it is easy to fall down that rabbit hole of negativity and reflect on unsavoury things. However, with every challenge also poses a handful of opportunities. This year allowed us to take into account our industry’s challenges, reflect on them, and develop new ways to better serve you, our customers. Despite the number of cancellations we faced due to the Provincial measures in place to tackle Covid-19, we were able to pivot and provide the same quality of service and food in new ways that kept our team and your families safe.

Christmas Dinner To Go In Vancouver

There is something in the air this time of year – it is that feeling of hope, of relief, and of promise as we slowly count down the days to the Holiday Season and the New Year. It goes without saying that 2020 has taken us all for a ride. The entire world was turned upside down in an instant with this unprecedented pandemic and just as quickly as our catering teams were planning weddings and other catering events, the cancellations came at lightspeed pace. Yes, there was a lot of uncertainty, and yes, some sacrifices had to be made, unfortunately – not just here at Truffles Fine Foods, but across every industry. With that being said, it is with humble hearts that we bring back our annual tradition of Christmas Dinner To Go.

An Ideal Thanksgiving Dinner

Hard to believe, but it is the end of September and here I was complaining about how quickly July disappeared on us. As we move into the autumn season where, as we know, in Vancouver can become very grey, wet, and cold, it is hard for us to stay focused on the positives. I know you are dreading the chore of having to dust-off your rain boots and invest in a new umbrella, but I do have some good news on the horizon to share!

Catering Procedures During COVID

Since March, Vancouver’s culinary, wedding, and catering landscape – like several industries – has taken such a drastic turn towards uncertainty and fear that no one really knows when things would return to the normal we took for granted. As restrictions started lifting and with the guidance of Vancouver Coastal Health, Truffles Fine Foods has taken – and continue to take – measures to ensure both the safety of you, your guests, vendors, and our staff. The full outline of our re-opening guide can be found here, but it is important for our team to emphasize the following:
