What is Slow Food?

What is Slow Food?

We love to take part in local events and provide the utmost level of quality to our clients. Chef David Catering takes pride in following the Slow Food mantra of good, clean and fair food.

One question we get often is what is slow food? Carlo Petrini and a group of activists spearheaded slow Food as an alternative to fast food in the 1980s. A snail was chosen as the symbol for this movement as it moves slowly as it eats its way through life. Today, Slow Food is a global movement involving many chapters, including Miami, and millions of people in over 160 countries.

What is Bibimbap?

What is Bibimbap?

Bibimbaps are nothing new in Korean cuisine but have recently taken the spotlight of food trends. Our clients love having them as part of a station for their event or meeting. Part of their appeal, aside from fusion of flavor, is the endless variations to this dish and each one is just as good as the next.

Bibimbap translates to mixed rice with meat and assorted vegetables. The bowl starts with a base of warm bamboo rice and is topped with namul, sautéed and seasoned vegetables. Vegetables layered in usually include julienned cucumber, zucchini, mushrooms, spinach, carrot and soybean sprouts. Egg and some form of protein are common additions. For visual appeal, the vegetables are often placed so adjacent colors complement each other. Not only is it a site to see but the dish is a fun mix of texture and flavor; at one point you can get a crunch from the veggies, smooth and runny from the egg, and soft from the rice.

Plancha Octopus with Spiced Chickpeas and Citrus Relish

We invited some of the greatest in the industry to join us in a team photoshoot to kick-off what we call "Chef David 2.0".
