Did you have a chance to stop by our booth at The Cream?

This year, we served up five sweet and savory bites, including chioggia beet risotto, tangerine shrimp on grilled ciabatta and a (crowd-pleasing) honey rosemary fried chicken on a chive biscuit.

We also highlighted our newest partnership with Sugarfina, giving attendees the chance to take home some sweets from a full tasting bar!

We were so thrilled to have been asked to cater this year’s FOX Emmy’s Media Center! UP was on hand making sure the media and winners were happy and full throughout the day. Keeping in mind that food needed to be accessible and easy to eat we created a menu of grab and go items placed on unique setups throughout 8 event spaces. It was a blast working on such a high energy event with an amazing group of vendors. Photos by Scott Clark.
