Food Trends This Summer

In our many years as a successful Atlanta caterer, we have seen many food trends come and go. Thankfully, some trends did not last long while others are hopefully here to stay. Just like in other world-class cities, catering in Atlanta means staying abreast of the various food trends that continually show up on the culinary radar screen. Below are a few food trends that have found their way into foodie hearts all over the country this year. Which one of them would you like to try? Which one do you think will last?

Locally Sourced Ingredients

There was time when only professional chefs and well-informed food lovers would insist on farm-fresh produce and meats. Now even the average food shopper prefers to eat food that has not crossed an ocean or a continent to get to their plate. Not only do they taste better and cost less, locally sourced ingredients also have a much smaller carbon footprint. This is a victory not only for health-conscious, environmentally aware consumers but for Mother Nature as well.

As innovative and resourceful caterers in Atlanta, we fully support our local farms. Our clients have our assurance that we use only the finest and freshest ingredients in all our dishes.

Healthy Kids’ Meals

Childhood obesity is on the rise in America and parents are not taking it sitting down any longer. They are pushing their kids into sports, playgrounds and a variety of active extracurricular activities in an effort to address this serious health threat. They are also insisting on children’s menus with healthier options in restaurants.

We constantly adjust our Atlanta catering menu to reflect food trends that benefit our clients. Providing healthy food options for children is one food trend that we hope will become a mainstay in modern American cuisine.


Because they are eating more fruits and vegetables that are not only organic but also locally grown and sold, Americans are discovering just how delicious really fresh produce can be. An ever-increasing number of restaurants all over the country now carry at least one vegetarian dish on their menu. This culinary offshoot of the commune dwellers from the turbulent ’60s has indeed come of age.

Fruits and vegetables have always been a notable part of our catering menu. Their vibrant eye-popping colors and unique flavors brighten up a dish like few other ingredients can.

Enjoy the best that Atlanta catering has to offer. Call A Legendary Event and let us make your dream event come true.

Wedding Color Palette Ideas

As a successful wedding caterer in Atlantawe know that choosing a color scheme for your wedding is not an easy task. While your favorite color (or colors) is a good place to start, there are so many new and exciting color combinations right now that staying with conventional pairings just seems so staid. So let your “something new” be a complete departure from the tried and true. See below for a few bold suggestions.

Vintage Aesthetic

For a classic yet daring look, add a touch of gold to a black and white color scheme. Gold-trimmed wine glasses, black centerpiece vases with all white flowers and wispy gold ribbons glittering in the light — let your imagination take you back to a time when glamor was all the rage. If you’re changing outfits for some part of the evening, glam it up with a white boa, a solid gold gown and mile-high black stiletto shoes.

Serve black and white dessert items with a sprinkling of edible gold dust as a way to bring your evening of vintage glamor to a close. A Legendary Event can create a unique Atlanta catering menu to feature a variety of delicious dishes that reflect this color combination.

Modern and Bold

Pair traditional white with a terrific bold hue such as orange for an impact that will leave your guests stunned with awe. Set a luscious table with opalescent white bowls overflowing with orange fruits (kumquats, clementines, navel oranges) and dotted with showy white flowers like gardenias and orchids.

Or pair white with varying shades of slate for a smoldering, more sophisticated look. White and slate centerpieces (white flowers with slate accessories) will add drama to your table setting and help set the mood for an evening of revelry.

Simple and Elegant

Different shades of yellow and green will imbue your celebration with cheer and good spirits. Choose from contrasting ends of the color palette to lend an ethereal quality to your reception (bright lemon yellow with pale mint for example). Cluster a variety of yellow blooms in jade-green celadon vases and use them as centerpieces for your tables. As experienced Atlanta catererswe can create a variety of green and yellow drinks to serve at your wedding and carry the color theme from cocktail hour to the very end.

No matter what color scheme you choose for your wedding, we can weave it seamlessly into your celebration. A Legendary Event is a leading expert in the Atlanta wedding catering industry.
