Kathi's Saturday Night Dinner Party Menus

It's fun! It's different! And it's absolutely delicious!

What am I talking about? I'm talking about my new Saturday Night Dinner Party!

It's a great way to enjoy some of our delicious food, without having to host a fully catered soiree. (Of course, we are always happy to do that, too! Afterall, catering for weddings, birthday parties and office luncheons is our main bread and butter!)

But as you'll see these parties are a little different. This is how it works...

Each Saturday Night Dinner Party Menu/ Theme will be based on one of our delicious main dish entrees, either from our catering website, a new inspiration from our kitchen, a classic-tried-and- true favorite from our catering menu/ recipe archives, our cookbook library or from some other inspired source.

Someone asked a really good question. They wanted to know if they could select the entree of their choice. The answer is... OF COURSE, you can, providing that we are available to prepare the dish.
Say for example, you are planning on having 6 for dinner on a certain Saturday night in July. We suggest that you go ahead and contact us and book your dinner reservations. With enough advance notice, we would be honored to create our Saturday Night Dinner Party Menu for that night based on your taste preferences.

Bookings should be made EARLY! Your food will be prepared, packaged and available for pick-up on Saturday afternoon. All you'll have to do is take your food home, refrigerate and/ or gently reheat at dinner time.

It's like the best of all worlds... our incredible food....available in any number of servings and enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.  We cook, you pick-it up and rake in the compliments. We won't tell anyone who did the cooking! Your secret is safe with us!

Kathi Wins Writing Award

Canopy Rose owner, Kathi Dameron has won the 2nd Place Award in the Newspaper Article Category at the 2008 Southern Christian Writer's Conference in Tuscaloosa, Alabama for her article, Simple Act of Sharing Food Can Truly Bring People Together. This article appeared in the Northeast Chronicle - Tallahassee Democrat during the spring of 2008 in the Entertaining with Kathi column.

Grand Prize Winner In Cooking Contest

The year was 1987 when Kathi Dameron, a passionate gourmet cook who spent her days teaching 32 second graders, and her weekends hosting fun parties for her circle of friends at her waterfront home on Florida's North Hutchinson Island, won two prizes in the first cooking contest she ever entered. One of these prizes was the coveted Grand Prize. At that moment Kathi knew that one day in the not too distant future her special dream to launch her very own catering company would be realized. Seven years later that day arrived with the birth of Canopy Rose in Florida's Capital City in 1994.
