Greener and Organic
Executive Chef Rico believes that protecting our environment is as important as serving nutritious, healthy and delicious food. With this in mind, Chef Rico seasons its menus with organic herbs and organic produce. Customized Catering offers biodegradable serving products upon request.
A growing number of consumers favor food prepared with organic ingredients, claiming that it just tastes better. Moreover organic produce and herbs benefit the Earth and your health. At Customized Catering we couldn’t agree more and that is why we came by acquiring all organic herbs and produce grown locally in Gilroy, California. Their flavoring touch adds to Chef Rico’s culinary creations with tantalizing results.
Organic foods are spared the application of potentially harmful long-lasting insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and fertilizers. In-depth studies have compared the nutritional value of organic foods to conventional grown foods with most reports favoring organic. Foods grown naturally in well-balanced soils, ripened by the sun are healthier and tastier than products with long-term exposure to pesticides, additives, antibiotics and irradiation. Products brought up on a diet of chemicals, sprayed with preservatives only to allow them to sit in storage for months can impact your health significantly. At Customized Catering we believe our valued customers should have the full benefits of organic ingredients and products.
Caring for our environment is one of Chef Rico's goal as he prepares succulent menus. He makes every effort possible to exercise environmentally friendly practices, such as recycling, and biodegradable serving products at our customers’ request. These products include serving plates, forks, knives, spoons, and table napkins.
Chef Rico’s customized gourmet techniques combined with fresh organic produce and herbs proved a healthier, nutritional, and delicious alternative. Enriched with organic ingredients, Customized Catering will continue to guarantee quality service and the freshness that has distinguished its menus over the years. Should our customers require entirely 100% organic menus including environmentally friendly serving products, we will gladly as always customize your special catering needs.
