Collins to work toward increasing visitation to Arkansas by groups and promoting the state's appeal
We went to Catering to You, the winner and regular high finisher in the best caterer category, to come up with a fine dinner where you leave the cooking to someone else.
The bottom line? Billie Rutherford, who runs the 23-year-old business, gave us by way of illustration a 92-person dinner Catereing to You threw recently. Field greens salad with basil vinaigrette, grilled pork tenderloin with raspberry salsa, nutted rice, rolls, cheese cake with a chocolate-dipped strawberry. Price: $52 each, prepared, served and cleaned up. Tax adds another 9.5 percent to that, for a total of almost $57 per head, including, well, water. Other beverages would be extra. And there might be a charge for a facility, unless your home can accommodate a crowd.
You also can throw your own dinner with gourmet to-go, gift baskets, cakes and gifts from the company’s shop at 8121 Cantrell Road.
