“Real adventure is defined best as a journey from which you may not come back alive, and certainly not as the same person.”
― Yvon Chouinard, Let My People Go Surfing: The Education of a Reluctant Businessman
It’s a joke at the office that we do everything by the book. Our t’s are crossed our i’s are dotted we always have the right permits signed off from the right people. This probably makes more work, but it’s the right way to run a business. The ethic goes deeper than paperwork and its part of the reason Festivities is celebrating its 30th year in business. We know it’s not just what you do, but how you do it that matters.
In the past few years this has become a popular idea (and we’re so glad to see it catching on!). How we create an event, prepare our food, treat our employees and vendors matters. It creates exceptional final products and that matters to our clients, and ALWAYS has. Beef Bourguignon from a packet and crock pot is just not the same as beef braised in wine. We take special care in where we get our ingredients from. Here’s a video of one of our great adventures to find the best ingredients.
I don’t think we were ever in danger of not coming back alive, but we certainly did not come back the same people. Thank you Sun Noodle for sharing so much with us and Micheal Chlala for filming and editing.
Later this spring we participated in Great Chefs where we turned our adventure into a Food Experience for our guests.
