Culinary Innovations

img-culinary

When all is said and done, it’s all about the food. CulinArt is a “Food First” company whose culinary professionals emphasize, and are trained, to produce meals from fresh, raw ingredients. CulinArt believes the dining experience should emanate from freshly prepared ingredients, sourced locally and in a manner that sustains animal, aquatic and plant life, minimizes environmental impact, and accommodates sound nutritional habits. We shun corporate templates, standardized recipe databases and procurement-driven menu development. Our chefs and managers make purchasing decisions based on the specific needs and desires of their customers. Our Culinary Development team ensures that CulinArt is at the forefront with regard to quick service, dining trends, innovations and breakthroughs in menu design. Our Director of Culinary Development and his team of regional chefs continually create new menu offerings drawing inspiration from authentic regional and international fare, as well as the latest cutting-edge culinary trends experienced in restaurants and reported on in trade magazines and food blogs. Visits to farms and markets, meetings with food product representatives, and national food and nutrition conferences also help to spark the inventiveness and originality we pride ourselves on. We provide dedicated culinary leadership within each sector/region of the business through our Regional Chefs’ Network. A collection of CulinArt’s premier culinary talent, the Regional Chefs’ Network is a group of senior chefs that represent CulinArt accounts, led by our director of culinary development. The Network promotes the sharing of information between its members and CulinArt’s chefs and managers. Members of the Regional Chefs’ Network are actively involved in recipe development and testing, as well as researching new programs and creating new concepts.

What our clients are saying

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“I would like to thank you and your staff for helping to make our Annual Holiday Party a Great Success.  You did an Amazing job from the décor, the food and the service you provided! I have heard nothing but great comments. As always, I enjoyed working with you and your team.”

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“I wanted to take this moment to thank you and your staff for making the Athletic Celebration absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about the event. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Thank you for your help from start to finish.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”
