2018 food trends to watch

Finley Creek Vineyard stays on top of catering trends and new ways of preparing and presenting various types of food.

As Jacquie Bols, owner of Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering and Finley Creek Vineyard is quick to point out, “Food trends don't suddenly happen. They're expansions of ideas from one end of the country to the other. It’s fun to see where these ideas come from, and where they go.”

Here’s what we expect to see more of, in the coming year:

Our Vision: Finley Creek Vineyards

An update on construction:
For those of you following the build-out of our new, 5-acre banquet facility and barn in Zionsville, Indiana, we wanted to give you a little bit of an update. While we have hit a few snags along the way since our demo date in June 2016, we are still working to obtain the proper permits and follow the guidelines of the city of Zionsville as we renovate the old Country Market space and grounds. Our plans are to announce a launch for 2017, but cannot confirm a date now.

Rustic Sophistication:

To get a better idea of our vision for our Indianapolis area wedding and event venue, picture a quaint yet sophisticated vineyard setting with rolling gardens, grape vines and a pergola. Our outdoor space will be perfect for a wedding ceremony, a nighttime cocktail hour or even outdoor dining. Guests can enter through double barn doors to our 5,000-square foot indoor space, where they will our designer has mixed contemporary elements such as glass, white stone floors and chandeliers with rustic features such as reclaimed wood beams. Our space designer, one of the lead architects at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, is helping make our vision for Finley Creek come to life, and we are excited for the changes to come.

European Style Catering:

As we have mentioned in the past, our philosophy at Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering is to keep things simple, and start with a great foundation. Much like we are doing with the design of our new Finley Creek wedding and event venue in Zionsville, our food is always simple, starting with a few great ingredients, which we build upon for great flavor without hiding the original taste. Our food is always created fresh and on-site for our clients, and we pride ourselves in customizing our menu to suit the overall vision of the event. We will also be offering many, sustainable food options from local farms for our entrees and other dishes.
