Who's News in Catering for July 30, 2022

Hott Off the Presses

Chef Gavin Kaysen has launched a new catering arm to his expanding Soigné Hospitality collection of ventures: Spoon and StableDemiMara and Socca with the Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis, Bellecour Bakery with Cook's, GK at Home, and KZ Provisioning with Andrew Zimmern. Now adding, Spoon Thief Catering

According to Minneapolis - St Paul Magazine, Spoon Thief will cater smaller events from 2 to 16 people, and up to 250 people upon special request. The company will be more aimed at special dinners inside your home or larger buffet-style events with bar service, small weddings, and business events.

Peter Ireland, a veteran local chef formerly of Harriet Brasserie and the long-lost Lynn on Bryant, is on board to help make things easier. He'd been working with Andrew Zimmern, and done some time with D'amico, so Kaysen called him up to help build Spoon Thief from the ground up.

For in-home dinners, they'll have a basic structure. It all starts with canapés during a reception and then moves to a seasonal four-course meal (appetizer, mid-course, entrée, and dessert). Of course you can customize, but some of the menu options include chorizo and date meatballs, dandelion gnocchi and mushrooms, smoked pork chop with warm potato salad, even Dorothy's Pot Roast can now be served direct from your kitchen. There are wine pairings and batched cocktail options for you to choose as well. Pricing, of course, varies by head count, but there is a $1,500 food and beverage minimum for in-home dinners.
