There are many reasons why I love Spring. It is not just the beautiful cherry blossoms that paint our parks and streets pink, or the welcoming weather that surrounds us with sunshine and warmth. Spring also gives us the opportunity to call out and show appreciation to that special person in our lives. No, I am not referring to our best friend, or a significant other. I am talking about that special person who showed us unconditional love since day one – our mothers!Read more “Mother’s Day Brunch in Vancouver”
All right, you love bugs, listen up because this one’s for you! We all know how difficult it is to plan the perfect evening during these Covid times. There is uncertainty with dining out, we are limited with how many guests we can see, and given our busy schedules, time is of the essence! Look no further because Truffles Fine Foods has come up with a solution.
If you want to surprise your special someone with a delicious, home-cooked meal but time or cooking skills aren’t in your favour, our Valentine’s Dinner for two has you covered.
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.Read more “Reflecting On Our 2020”
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.Read more “Christmas Dinner To Go In Vancouver”
With November just around the corner, our culinary team at Truffles Fine Foods has been working incredibly hard in our new commissary kitchen to come up with some creative holiday ideas that should excite and awake your inner foodie. Looking back at this year, 2020 had its share of surprises and challenges that had and still continue to affect us all. Our industry, much like many others, was pushed to its limits; however, it made us think outside our proverbial boxes and plan some carefully thought out menu and food ideas as we see the year out. This year, Truffles Fine Foods is proud to introduce Corporate Holiday Packages for all those who are busy working from home, and gift ideas from baskets to charcuterie and dessert boxes to treat loved ones or those deserving of a surprise.Read more “2020 Food-Related Holiday Gift Ideas”
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!Read more “An Ideal Thanksgiving Dinner”
It goes without saying that Micro Weddings and Events will now become the new normal – ideally not forever, but just for the foreseeable future. At Truffles Fine Foods, we understand how difficult having to reschedule and re-plan your events or big day could cause much unnecessary stress. Where can I find a decent venue? What would I serve my guests? How much would this all cost?Read more “We Are Servicing Micro Events”
Over the past few months, our lives and the way the entire world operates has evolved into something so unprecedented and unpredictable that planning just about anything is near futile. Due to the seriousness of Covid-19, our industry has faced several challenges from closures of our stores to the cancellation of events. With that said, our province has endured and we are slowly moving into phases that allow us to operate again. We know how important it is for you to tie the knot. And, as the old saying goes, “The show must go on!” When it comes to having your wedding, is it not just as relevant and applicable?
With current restrictions in place, our culinary team has been able to pivot by welcoming any and every request pertaining to Micro Weddings. If this concept is new to you, I invite you to read on.Read more “How To Have A Micro Wedding”
