Our clients are always loving their selections of late night snacks at events: BBQ, Sliders, Grilled Cheese, Mac & Cheese stations, and so on. People often mention that we are so lucky to be able to snack all the time at events. HA, that is so far from reality of an event for us worker bees! The snack attack happens on the regular when in the event business, but not till after some long days! The result of our team arriving home late brings some fun ‘go to’ snacks.
Nikki Lazar, CCNYC New Business Development Coordinator, goes to a snack that’s whack, but delish in it’s own way. She loves frozen cinnamon graham cracker and cool whip sandwiches. Nikki says “it all about them being made in bulk and ready to enjoy right out of the freezer, they are especially good in the summer!”
CCNYC Executive Chef, Miguel Urrego, has a snack that is pure delight. Arequipe con obleas, which is Colombian dulce de leche on thin wafers. Miguel does not claim to be a ‘sweets freak,’ but says “it just hits the spot, total comfort!”
The Creative Director, Benjamin Lester is a ‘sweets freak,’ but surprisingly his choice is savory. Toasted english muffin with smashed avocado and bragg liquid aminos (soy sauce). He says, “I like something substantial before sleep otherwise I wake up on the cranky side and no one wants to see cranky Ben!”
Julie Sommers, CCNYC Director of Catering, gets the award for most healthy selection. Her go to snack is yogurt with fresh banana, berries, nuts, and a touch of honey. She says, “…it’s just the perfect light snack and is not too heavy before going to bed.”
