Local Food + Local Lumber = A Win for KC!

Yesterday we had the privilege of catering the VIP reception and open house for the new Urban Lumber Company, a project of Missouri Organic.

Tim & Tony showing off the new sign for The Urban Lumber Co.

We had a beautiful buffet set up for the crowd, including roasted Spring veggie turnovers, fried green tomato sliders, Spring garlic stuffed goat cheese crisps, and smoked mushrooms on grilled French bread.  We rounded out the buffet with beautiful platters of olives and nuts, and local artisanal cheeses accompanied by our house-made crackers.  So delicious — and everything went beautifully with the McCoys brews on tap!  🙂

It was great to meet the diverse crowd of attendees throughout the evening — there were Woodworking Guild members, hobbyists, contractors and builders, fellow local-foodies, even a handful of firemen!

*ahem*

There were some amazing wood specimens on display, all milled at The Urban Lumber Co. — everything from Ash to Walnut — some with gorgeous live edges and some ready-to-go planks.  And the passion exhibited by the Missouri Organic and Urban Lumber Co. crews for the work they do was inspiring.  They’ve got some amazing projects going, and we look forward to partnering with them again in the future!
