Locally Sourced Ingredients. It’s a word that we hear frequently in the south but means so much more than being proud of the region we come from. Locally Sourced Ingredients at G Texas Catering means we are also proud to source non-GMO produce from local farms from right here in our own backyard. Take our Heirloom and Beefsteak tomatoes for instance. These delectable beauties come from Amelia’s farm in Bells, Texas. We have personally visited these farms to meet our farmers and see that the operation is pesticide-free and non-GMO grown. You can literally taste the difference between these top quality tomatoes and those that are commercially grown in every bite.

When you take a bit of G Texas stewed okra and tomatoes or dig into one of my Louisiana favorites, G Texas Gumbo, the flavors and freshness of locally grown produce makes the dishes even more mouthwatering! Our okra is sourced from a great Texas family farm, the Reeves Farms in Princeton, Texas. This is a true family farm that takes pride in their okra crop, producing 5000 pounds a day during the peak season, handpicked one piece at a time. We spent the afternoon with the Reeves family just a few weeks ago. Fine sustainable farming from people who really do care, just like us here at G Texas.
revival continues. 2000 small independent brewers in the US continue to create an unbelievable variety of innovative products that embody quality, personality, and flavor. The culinary staff at G Texas is no stranger to the passion that goes into creating an innovative product and they have developed recipes that pair perfectly with some of the most popular craft beers in our region. The Community Beer Company began brewing great products to fit almost any taste in January of 2013. Not only do they brew great beer, they also offer tours of the plant, live music and a great place to enjoy one of DFW’s favorite beers. The venue can be rented for private events as well. G Texas has had the privilege to provide catering services for many of these events and create custom menus that incorporate their best known products.

Another great placeto find a great Craft Beer and a very unique event space is Bitter Sister’s Brewery in Addison. We were pleased to provide an upscale dinner menu here for Nationstar Mortgage that featured some other great Craft Beer Food Pairings.
The perfect meal starts with planning and, of course selecting the perfect menu to suit the vision of the planner and the group that is to be served. Every element should come together to create a symphony of flavors and aromas. Desserts and pastry designs are the Chef’s opportunity to present a “Grand Finale” of flavor and presentation that the guest will remember forever.
For years we have baked incredible desserts like Amaretto Bread Pudding, Fresh Baked Cobblers, and pies of all kinds, in 2015 we were blessed with a true professional in the Pastry Arts that has transformed our pastry department. The plated desserts and pastry tables presented by Chef Maria Reveles are truly works of art.
Maria has used her experience which has been sharpened over 15 years of pastry design for Neiman Marcus and Nick & Sam’s to build a team that can create cutting-edge dessert pairings for most any menu. No “out of the box” pastries are acceptable, even for the largest of groups.
As it has been said, people eat with their eyes. Pastry designs have become a centerpiece for our events that have replaced simple buffet décor with colors, textures, and aromas that guests will never forget. Maria’s team now offers an Interactive Pastry Experience right in our corporate test kitchen, where guests are allowed to take part in the preparation of a variety of pastries, and of course, enjoy the fruits of their labor.
We can’t wait to see what ideas Maria and her incredible team come up with next!
