Welcome to the insider’s view of the Casual Gourmet!

These are exciting times at the Cape’s foremost caterer. As the summer of ’08 rolls on, Casual Gourmet continues to perform on the cutting edge of catering at Cape Cod’s finest summer events.

Throughout the weekend of July 11th, the Casual Gourmet was kept busy with a three-day wedding celebration in Osterville. The festivities began on Friday with a high-end clambake rehearsal dinner for the happy couple and their 180 guests. The sun and sea breeze of the evening affair at picturesque Nauticus Marina set the tone for a beautiful weekend.

On Saturday, after an oceanfront ceremony and a beautiful wedding dinner at the Wianno Club, the 230 guests took trolleys to the stunning summer home of the bride’s family. There, with the help of Elegant Engagements, Be Our Guest, Chase Canopies and Tony Ormand’s incredible lighting and design, the clients’ backyard was transformed into a fantasy L.A. Nightclub. We served fabulous desserts, luscious martinis (poured through a 5-foot ice luge, no less!), and an elaborate sundae bar. After midnight, guests were treated to passed sliders and could grab a late-night snack off of our hot dog cart.
