3 Girls Catering
3 Girls Catering (then 2 Girls) moved from San Diego to Boise in the summer of 2006 after my sister and I went through some major life changes. I had just had my second child (born with several heart defects and having just recovered from open-heart surgery - with flying colors). My sister Lisa had just gotten divorced after 20 years of marriage. We were ready for change. It was time. Our families had vacationed in Idaho for ages, at least once a year, to spend time with our middle sister Kris and her family. We knew the area well. In fact, it didn't make us nervous at all when my niece Rachel came home from school one day and said, "I wanna go to BSU, and when I get in, we're all moving!" Lisa and I agreed immediately and within a few months, we were loaded up and on our way. Kids, pets, chafing dishes, aprons, and all.
More About Us
Our philosophy hasn't changed over our 13 years here in Boise. We will not serve anything that we won't serve our family. We source locally first, designing menus around fresh, organic, sustainable ingredients. We charge what we need to make a reasonable profit without going overboard. We search high and low for crew members who are hard-working and share our love of great food and wine. We support local farmers, winemakers, entertainers, athletes, musicians and we make it a point to shop at local businesses. We keep current on food styles and beautiful presentation and We have fun. Oh, and if we make a mistake (I know, I know, we admit it! We're not perfect) we do our best to make it right.
Service Areas In Idaho
It was while talking to these clients and reviewing the menus from the previous caterer that we realized what wonderful potential there was for us here in the Treasure Valley. These poor brides, event planners, hosts, business professionals, and families were hungry for more than just great food. They wanted a caterer who heard their requests. They longed for fresh local ingredients, not packaged frozen junk the previous caterer had on their menu. They wanted a selection of their favorite items (and new ones to try) to share with guests without breaking the bank. They wanted Idaho wine recommendations, help with rentals, staffing and the works. I reworked each proposal, changing some menus completely and adding our signature "3 Girls flair". We accommodated those distraught people who were out thousands of dollars, catering their events either at the cost of our ingredients or completely free of charge. Within a few short months, we were catering to every venue in Boise and loving it. We took the Treasure Valley by storm and were excited to stay!
