Reno Holiday Party Catering 2014 Sparks, Lake Tahoe

This year, The Cheese Board Catering Company of Reno is putting a bow on 33 years of helping people in Reno, Sparks, Fernley, Carson City, Incline Village, and beyond celebrate the holiday season with amazing food, inspired drinks, and service beyond compare. How do they do it? You might say it’s in their DNA.

“It’s what I call “the Hospitality Gene,” says Debbie Branby, founder of The Cheese Board. “You either have it, or you don’t. Here at The Cheese Board, having the Hospitality Gene is a job requirement.”

In a nutshell, the Hospitality Gene is that unique combination of 1) being a “foodie” and getting joy out of great food and drink and sharing it with other people 2) being a “people person” and truly caring about making each person feel welcome and taken care of; and 3) being mindful that it is a great privilege to cater in people’s homes and businesses, and equally great care must be taken to leave them in even better shape than they were found in. The Hospitality Gene is what drives the catering team at The Cheese Board, led by Executive Chef Kaimi Coonrad, to absolutely “wow” clients, families, friends, and guests at the holiday parties, celebrations, and special events they cater throughout the Reno-Tahoe area.

“It’s really quite remarkable,” said Barbara B., a longtime client of The Cheese Board, “the difference in the quality and service delivery from one caterer to the next. When the food matters,” she added, “don’t waste your time. Call The Cheese Board.”

The Cheese Board Catering Company - Lake Tahoe Wedding Catering

Last weekend, Sandy and Ray, a very fun couple from San Francisco, had a beautiful wedding ceremony at a lakeside residence on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, and we at The Cheese Board Catering Company were delighted to be a part of it! (Thanks again to the bride and groom for inviting us to be a part of their Tahoe wedding day!) If you’ve ever dreamt of getting married (or renewing your vows) at Lake Tahoe, late summer is an absolutely gorgeous time to do it, with the warm breeze wafting through the trees, the smell of sugar pines, the gentle lapping of water on the shore, and the aromas of delectable foods exciting your appetite!

As a matter of fact, we’re catering another Lake Tahoe wedding today, at the south end of McKinney Bay … and we can’t wait to share our photos with you!

Artful Food For Artown & Summer Fun in Reno/Tahoe!

July 28th, 2013

A lot of folks know The Cheese Board has been catering Reno-Tahoe events since 1981. But what a lot of folks don’t know is that we don’t just cater fancy events at people’s homes or businesses. We also love helping folks out when they want to add a little something special to their party or when they need something yummy but don’t have time to cook. That’s why we have a whole bunch of special entrées and delicious menus for people who need catering and who just happen to be on the run. Sound familiar? So for all those summertime (and early fall!) events and out-of-door gatherings that make Reno-Tahoe so great, we’ve got house-made entrées, soups, salads, sides, and desserts to match. And, we package them right out of the oven into handy carry-and-serve containers (all 100 percent recycled and recyclable, because it’s a small, delicate planet we all share). For more information, call Krista Phillips at ext. 105 or Debbie Branby at ext. 104 today! One more thing: The photo shown here is really our food, and it really was shot by the amazing photographer, Jeff Dow of Reno, Nevada. Bon appetit!

The Cheese Board Set Up For A Pharmaceutical Dinner

Lights, Camera, Action: The Cheese Board’s new “DIY” catering and dining room captured by the talented Jeff Dow

March 9th, 2013

Amazing photographer and longtime friend Jeff Dow came over recently to photograph The Cheese Board’s new DIY (“do-it-yourself”) catering, a program we developed because brides were calling us for affordable drop-off reception food, and we wanted to raise the bar by offering a beautiful presentation to compliment our tasty food. We had discovered some amazing eco-friendly platters at a national catering conference that fit into almost any decor. Jeff & Co. also captured our wonderful dining room, which is available after 5 p.m. for your private events, such as pharmaceutical dinners, sales presentations, board of directors meetings, or wedding rehearsal dinners for 20-50 guests. We think it’s the prettiest dining room in Reno…don’t you agree?

Spectacular Thunderbird Lodge Wedding Catered By The Cheese Board

October 2nd, 2012

Fall is a magical time to get married at Lake Tahoe, and last Saturday’s event at the Thunderbird Lodge was no exception with bluebird weather, the lake like a millpond, and an adorable Reno couple tying the knot in front of family and friends. Debbie Branby, Chef Kaimi Coonrad, and the catering team from The Cheese Board arrived early to make everything “just so” for a glorious wedding reception, with passed hors d’oeuvres and a yummy wedding buffet set up to take in the view. Wedding guests enjoyed a wonderful guitarist playing while the drinks flowed and laughter filled the air. Reno’s own Eldorado provided a gorgeous wedding cake, and a rocking DJ kept things moving well into the evening. Our thanks to the charming couple for letting us be a part of their special day. Wedding catering at Lake Tahoe: It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it!
