BG Events and Catering knows that what was once old is now new again. The company is still seeing the need for renovated classics which are prepared with amazing techniques, yet look approachable and are a delicacy for all. Current trends with which Chef Ian and the rest of the staff will work include chef table and pod presentations, and poultry prepared in contemporary methods with ancient grains like faro and quinoa.

"I'm looking forward to continuing to work with BG to help set the trends in the industry," said Chef Ian. "We have a lot of exciting things that we're working on, items and new ideas that our clients are going to love, and it's going to be a great experience to help in my new capacity."
