Chef’s Collaborative

We were thrilled to coordinate the 6th Annual Chefs Collaborative Sustainable Food Summit in Boulder last fall.  Hundred chefs and culinary professionals visited Boulder for three glorious days to enjoy events focused on sustainability in the culinary industry.

We had a wonderful time producing one exciting event after another. Three experiences that were particularly memorable were held at iconic Boulder locations. They definitely qualified as “Big and Boulder”!

First, we recreated the farmers market experience on the site of the traditional Boulder Farmers Market. The event gave Chefs Collaborative participants an opportunity to feel like true Boulderites on a stroll through their beloved Colorado-homegrown market.. The following day began with the so-much-fun breakfast food truck rally held in front of the Boulder Theater near the Pearl Street Mall.  Over 250 people joined us for breakfast treats provided by the area’s most popular food trucks.  Finally, we arranged a glorious luncheon on the Chautauqua Park Lawn, a breathtaking stretch of land at the base of the Flatirons. We opted for community tables to encourage networking opportunities.

Working with Chefs Collaborative was a phenomenal experience. Thank you Chefs Collaborative for inviting us to be part of your 6th Annual Sustainable Food Summit.


Calluna Events takes Sur La Table Cooking Class

We took a break from wedding wonderland last week to spruce up our knife skills in the Sur La Table kitchen, attending “Summer at the Farmers Market” cooking class. We channeled our inner foodie and hunkered down for an exciting two hour, four course meal guided by personable and knowledgable Chef Kate Hegman, a Boulder based chef we’ve had the pleasure of working next to throughout the years. Each course brought different elements, techniques, styles and flavors, all centered around fresh, Farmers Market grown, local ingredients.

This evening class was a peak of our week and we are dying to get the word out. Sur La Table has the best of all worlds – hands on instruction, conscious food selections, a creative environment that fosters learning and laughing (and let’s be honest, eating!) topped off by a I-didn’t-know-I-needed-that-but-it’s-amazing retail shop for every kitchen or hosting need. Welcome to all levels, every cooking stress, fear or question was whisked away by the hospitable staff and we were left with happy hearts  and full tummies.

We love and recommend this class for a multitude of events – team bonding, holiday, parties & bachelorette gatherings to name a few. What’s more, book this class with a group of your people and it turns into a BYOB party! Bonding over sips and stirs sounds pretty perfect. Did we mention the food was delicious?!?
