Fall Favorites

The perfect day deserves the perfect meal!

Whether it’s a beautiful fall wedding or an intimate dinner, this is your guide to curating the perfect menu.

Here in Temecula, we are lucky enough to have access to great produce, pretty much, year-round. Nonetheless, there are peak seasons for all produce and as your caterer, we want to help you take advantage of that.

Listed below are some of our fall favorites.
