Best Of 2013: Caterer

Perennial Best Of-winning caterer Picnic Basket (the flagship company in a trio that includes Cravings and Buffalo Gals) has had an exciting year because, as co-owner Michelle Talarico says, it's finally been able to tackle the Colorado farm-to-table food that clients have been wanting. "Until recently we just couldn't get the amount of product to execute, say, a wedding," she says. Now, however, thanks to an increase in local farm resources, their chefs are rolling out new menus quarterly based on the season. Of course, she laughs when asked about the 24-year-old company's most popular item, because there's nothing new about it. "It seems so silly because we make tens of thousands of them [but] ... people are just insane for our almond-stuffed dates wrapped in bacon." — Kirsten Akens
