Beautiful presentation, absolute freshness and the highest quality ingredients are the hallmarks of this Tallahassee Florida area caterer

Chef Kathi from Canopy Rose Catering writes, " We just love to share pictures of the beautiful and delicious food we prepare in our catering kitchen. I suppose some things never a school girl I loved Show and Tell and as a caterer, I still love Show and Tell! As you can see, presentation is very important to us.(That has alot to do with my design background.) Equally important is absolute freshness and  the highest quality of ingredients! The food that we prepare for your event, is made from ingredients that are specifically purchased for your event. The bottom line is, I am extremely picky, which translates to a very good thing for my clients, since I am even pickier about each and every ingredient that goes into your menu!"

It is no wonder that this Tallahassee Florida area catering company will soon be celebrating twenty years since first opening their doors in Tallahassee in 1994!

Always popular, always delicious... the Mixed Greens with Fresh Seasonal Fruit with Pecans and Blue Cheese Crumbles by Chef Kathi from Canopy Rose Catering has been a Tallahassee catering tradition for twenty years!  (Goat Cheese Crumbles or Feta Cheese Crumbles may be requested.)

The Marinated and Grilled Flank Steak from Canopy Rose Catering is absolutely outstanding. If you want to serve an extraordinary tender and flavorful steak at your next event... this is it! Your guests will be raving long after your event is over. Call and order some today! 

While there are so many different dessert options available to you from Canopy Rose Catering, we just love the sophisticated elegance of Chef Kathi's Grasshopper Pie. Whether traditionally prepared in a communal pie pan or served in individual containers, such as these martini glasses, the final result is pure decadent deliciousness. This version was made with big splashes of Creme de Menthe and Creme de Cacoa, but equally delicious non-alcoholic versions can be requested.

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.
