Flying With The Stars 2016

Our 3rd Annual Flying with the Stars was a huge success. Together we raised over $20,000 for The Dolphins Cancer Challenge and Operation Lift Hope.
This year guests were lucky enough to enjoy a large silent auction including a large variety of luxury items from jewelry, sports paraphernalia, to wine.
As well as a once-in-a-lifetime wine-paired 5-course dinner prepared by 2 Italian Michelin-starred chefs, Davide Brovelli of Il Sole di Ranco and Tommaso Arrigoni of Innocenti Evasioni, in collaboration with Graspa Group’s own chefs from Salumeria 104, Midtown Oyster Bar, and Spuntino. View event photos here!

Summer Vibes

Little beats the feeling of sharing summer weekends with friends and amazing food in your backyard, just relaxing by the pool. And that usually entails a BBQ. Slow-roasted pork loin, spicy chicken legs, coleslaw, roasted corn… yes… BBQ…

Now your mind might be wondering towards the mess and prep time a BBQ really means. DON’T!

Our team can come in and seamlessly prepare summer favorites without the hassle. That way you can enjoy frozen margaritas, play with the kids (slip n’ slides are pretty awesome!), host an unforgettable afternoon and still feel relaxed (no clean up!).

Let us know if you want to take advantage of the last few weeks of summer break to make a statement as the best BBQ host this year ;o)

I Know How She Does IT!

From Chef Carlo Donadoni:
“I’m from Milan, 100%. So much so my family lost count of how many generations we go back. With that said, another tell-tale of being from Milan is your ability to make Risotto alla Milanese. If you can’t, your family is probably not really from Milan…
My mom’s Risotto alla Milanese is the best I’ve ever had, and her recipe, which I use faithfully, is unmatched. But until recently, she refused to share it and the secrecy made it that much more special. The crunchy bone marrow with a perfect al dente rice and creamy saffron sauce are just absolutely deliciously perfect together, from flavors to textures. Maybe the special ingredient is her love. But Mom: don’t worry, I will keep your secret recipe safe!”

Spuntino Gets Artsy

February is an exciting month featuring Art Wynwood and the Miami International Boat Show! Spuntino Bakery and Catering will serve its amazing food at both events in different formats.
At Art Wynwood, as during Art Miami, Spuntino will host the café portion of the exhibition with a

limited menu and a full bar for guests to enjoy, as well as a VIP lounge. Integrating our chef-driven restaurant destinations, the café will be Salumeria 104-inspired with plenty of Italian cured meats, paninis and salads to choose from. Meanwhile the lounge will showcase some of Midtown Oyster Bar’s favorite bites such as the crab cakes, mac & lob and the must-try edamame, curry & crab soup!

During the Boat Show, this year for the first time on Key Biscayne, Spuntino will cater the “Made in Italy” brand Mangusta Yacht, an OverMarine company. Guests at the by-invitation-only opening cocktail reception will enjoy passed hors d’oeuvres, a small buffet and plenty of delicious wine. And throughout the weekend, on the floating expansive booth, Spuntino will serve Italian coffee service with house made pastries followed by lunchtime mini paninis, salads then afternoon sweet delights with an assortment of tiny desserts like macaroons and tiramisu and truffle chocolates.
It’s a month filled with art, extravaganza and deliciousness. On land and water. Spuntino style.

Here’s what Dan Jackson of the MoMA Cafes, Gia SanAngelo of Untitled at the Whitney, Mike Shain of Porchlight, and Simon King of the Modern had to say.  Read Full Article
