Artisan by Santa Barbara Catering is proud to announce that Pro Em, the Southwest’s largest supplier of event services, chose us to cater their Open House at the grand opening of their new Design Center. We’re honored that, out of all catering companies in the Valley, Pro Em chose Artisan by Santa Barbara Catering to provide food and drink for this exclusive event!

Pro Em’s clientele consists of the Arizona Cardinals, Arizona State University and the Fiesta Bowl. Their new Design Center is a showroom dedicated to wedding and special event planning so that coordinators can view and select products that they would like to use for their occasions.

The Open House brought out several of the Valley’s top planners, which gave us great exposure and a chance to show off what we’re best at—fresh, delectable food!

As guests browsed the display tables, they were greeted with Sangria and hand-passed hors d’oeuvres.

The hors d’oeuvres menu included:

Beer Battered Coconut Shrimp Satays, accompanied by Honey Chipotle Sauce

Barbecued Pork Sliders slathered in a Spicy Sauce, topped off with Creamy Coleslaw that creates the perfect crunch

Beef Tenderloin accompanied by Arugula, Caramelized Onions and served on Roquefort Polenta

Lemon Parmesan Chicken Skewers dusted with Herbed Bread Crumbs and Fresh Lemon, accompanied with Roasted Garlic Dipping Sauce

Farm Fresh Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Basil, served in an Edible Spoon

Chickpea and Vegetable Empanada with Roasted Garlic and Lemon Hummus

Gourmet desserts came next, and the guests were delighted by these sweet items:

Petite Pistachio Tart with Whipped Orange Scented Crème Fraîche, Marinated Strawberries and Sweet Basil Syrup

Caramel & Sea Salt Truffle , served as a “Lollipop”

Mini Red Velvet Whoopie Pie with Cream Cheese Filling

While Pro Em is known for bringing the complete package to any event, we were honored to be able to create the menu for theirs.
