Tall Grass Catering:
Good food's on the way!
Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company has been known for its commitment to organic grains,
fresh milling, high quality baking and whole food since its beginnings in 1990.
Catering taking a summer break
Tall Grass Catering is taking a summer break from July 1 to August 24, 2014.
We will be reopening Monday, August 25 with a restructured format ready to prep and platter any size order for pick-up at our Forks location. This includes baking, fruit, veggie and cheese platters, as well as appetizer platters. [read more…]
Breakfasts and snacks
The main focus of catering at Tall Grass is on baked goods for morning meetings as well as snack breaks. We also have lovely platters of fruit, cheese or veggies.
For small breakfast and snack events we require 24 hour notice, and appreciate 48 hours. In an emergency, call us and see if we can make it work. We cater meetings from 30 to 3000 people with our cinnamon buns, muffins, scones, squares, cookies and platters.
We put together delightful arrangements for business, government and educational meetings, and can also supply conferences and other larger events.
We generally do NOT cater coffee, lunches or suppers, except for larger events, by special arrangement. We require at least two weeks notice for these events, of 50 people and more.
Choose from fresh, out-of-the-oven mini versions of our cinnamon buns, muffins, biscuits and croissants. $2.75 per person (includes 2 pieces of mini baking).
Savoury Breakfast Squares
This catering-size version of our popular breakfast square is fingerfood friendly. Please allow 48 hour notice for any savoury square order. $2.00 per square.
Fruit Platters, Veggie Platters, Cheese Platters
Fresh fruit, vegetables or cheeses, beautifully arranged, offer a healthy alternative snack option. The fruit and veggies we use are not necessarily organic. We use mainly Manitoba Bothwell cheeses.
- Mini (serves up to 7) $24.00
- Small (serves up to 15) $36.00
- Medium (serves up to 22) $54.00
- Large (serves up to 30) $68.00
Cracker and cheese platters or larger combination platters are available. If combining other food with these platters, a smaller size often works well.
A word on butter. In our experience at most 20% of people will use butter. To avoid unnecessary waste, we include 30% of butter and knives free of charge. Extra butter and knives may be purchased at cost. Our traditionally-prepared house jams are available in 250 ml jars for $6.95 per jar. We have various flavours. For environmental reasons we do not supply jam in portion cups. Enjoy left-over jam at home!
Nothing brings smiles to a group like Tall Grass Prairie's famous sweet treats. Choose from lemon squares, date squares, brownies, cinnamon buns, fruit loaves and a range of yummy cookies. In general, a portion includes one square and 1.5 cookies. You can also just order squares and/or cookies. $2.75 per person
Half and full-sized pan cakes available for larger events. Please enquire for details.
- Small Juices (300 ml) $1.25
- Water (500 ml) $1.25
Note: Coffee service is exclusively available for larger events of 50 people or more, and includes a pick-up fee for all carafes. Call for details.
We will put together a delightful arrangement to meet your needs and look forward to serving you. Place an order and good food's on the way!
Pickup & Delivery
Our catering is focused on early morning breakfast options or snack platters during the mid morning and afternoon. Late afternoon catering needs to be negotiated.
For small and medium sized orders, customers can pick-up their catering orders or send a courier to do so. There is a handy loading zone behind The Forks Tall Grass Bakery along the tracks, which make pick-ups very easy.
Delivery of catering orders for large events such as conferences, receptions, press conferences and similar functions is available with at least 10 days notice. In general, events of 80 people or more qualify for delivery. We do try to keep a sense of flexibility and common sense around this number.
To place an order, our catering team can be reached at 204-947-1297 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Tall Grass Catering is taking a break from July 1 to August 24, 2014 and from approximately December 20, 2014 to January 10, 2015 for the holiday season.
Prices are subject to change without notice. Taxes are not included in pricing.
Payment options: Cash, cheque, debit, or VISA & MasterCard over the phone or in person. Invoicing available for most catering orders.
Catering, the Tall Grass way
- We bake because it is our passion
- We mill organic grains because we believe in the power of the fresh whole kernel
- We bake mostly with our own fresh ground organic flour, because there's nothing like it
- We press our own sunflower oil because only fresh cold-pressed organic oil carries wholesome goodness
- We buy locally because we enjoy knowing our growers and suppliers, and helping each other look after the land.
