Spring Forward To A Fresh Meal Plan

From large product launch parties to small social gatherings, Encore takes pride in our ability to cater any type of event. Here are a few ideas that will help you stick to a fresh and healthy meal plan this spring:

Breakfast: Say Yeah To Chia!

Ditch the toast and cereal! Chia Pudding offers fibre, omegas and potassium, not to mention a fresh and fully customized approach to your breakfast. Add sweetness with a variety of berries such as raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and blackberries. Visit chia-seed-pudding-recipes for more ways on how to customize your chia pudding.

Featured Toronto Event Venue: Miller Lash House

Miller Lash House - Toronto Catering Venue

– Experience The Beauty Of Miller Lash House –

When Miller Lash was first introduced to 130 Old Kingston Road in 1913, the scenic view inspired his imagination. He then decided to purchase the property, where a number of architects from Upper New York State planned and executed the design of the venue and its surrounding areas. Upon visiting the website at www.millerlashhouse.ca, a majestic photo of the entrance in the picturesque valley of Highland Creek captures the history and beauty of this premier Toronto event venue. The property also presents a harmonic balance for guests, from its natural surroundings and strong emphasis on the arts and crafts movement.

Miller Lash House continues to captivate guests for all types of Toronto events. From couples looking to book their wedding ceremony and reception, to companies hosting milestone corporate parties, meetings and product launches – Miller Lash House is both majestic and customizable. Their elegant indoor and outdoor space seamlessly connects flexibility with design to create unforgettable moments in time for you and your guests.
