Before the race begins, let’s eat! The Deighton Cup 2016 will be offering a full range of Southern classics meet Pacific Rim flavours designed and catered by Cocktails & Canapés Catering + Events. I’m excited for friendly finger food to stay in style and hearty sit down menus when I need to really fill my stomach. Hope this dress won’t be too tight!
Culinary Director Brett Turner has taken the event’s traditional Deep South-inspired food program and incorporated both subtle and fiery Pacific Rim flavours. The result is a tantalizing array of complimentary and à la carte creations that embody both the Deighton Cup’s heritage and the spirit of the West Coast.
