Keeping It All In The Family

Norman Lear is a legend.  If you don’t know who he is personally, you’ve heard of his work around Hollywood.  As a writer and producer, Norman was huge in the 1970s television scene.  With titles like All In The Family, The Jeffersons, Silver Spoons and Good Times, and later with movies like The Princess Pride, Stand By Me, and Fried Green Tomatoes, Lear has won four Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award, been nominated for an Academy Award for writing Divorce American Style, received the Humanist Arts Award, received his star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, and was one of the first inductees into the Television Hall of Fame.  He has also received the Woody Guthrie Prize and was recently been honored at the Kennedy Center, although he boycotted the White House Reception due to his dislike and disapproval of the Trump Presidency. 


Why are we talking about Norman Lear?  Last week, Chris got the honor of appearing on his podcast “All Of The Above” with Bruce Bozzi, owner of the Palm Restaurant.  In this podcast, you'll get to hear about business philosophies, dining etiquette, and what foods these guys try to avoid in order to keep their great physique.

Culinary Consulting

As we make our way into Spring, we start to think of what that means for new beginnings.  We have a lot of exciting things coming up, but what want to focus on is a new service that we offer: Culinary Consulting.

What is Culinary Consulting?

Throughout our years of service, we found clients coming to us, not just for full outside-catering, but for help on events that already have a company or person attached to the culinary aspect.  Normally we would turn this down, but we were intrigued.  Since then, we have collaborated with out-of-town chefs, restaurants, and even other venues with in-house catering, to bring the Chris Brugler Catering standards of excellence.  Working hand-in-hand with internal teams, both companies, under the guidance of Chris Brugler, execute a flawless event.

We know this is a little out-of-the-ordinary, but we think this is going to be something really exciting!
