From Noble Food & Pursuits—the same group responsible for popular local eateries Rooster’s, The Jimmy, Noble Smoke, Bossy Beulah’s Chicken Shack, Copain Bakery, and The King’s Kitchen—comes a new culinary venture: Field Pea Catering. Driven by classically trained chefs and characterized by an elegant yet understated event presentation, Field Pea Catering is a feather in the cap of a suite of endeavors to bring good food to good people. It’s some of the best catering in Charlotte, NC.
Although Noble Food has offered catering through its individual restaurants for decades, Field Pea presents a new opportunity. Field Pea takes food a bit further—both geographically and metaphorically. “We’re taking our decades of experience cooking and nourishing guests outside of our restaurants and to your table—wherever that may be,” says Jim Noble, chef and founder of Noble Food & Pursuits.
Southern Standouts: Best Catering in Charlotte, NC
The catering service can be engaged for a range of events—from dinner parties and business meetings to weddings and graduations. A complementary pick-up/drop-off service is available to support events that do not require service professionals. Menu items are crafted from regional produce and protein. The menu can include passed hors d’oeuvres, like prosciutto and fig tartine or steak tartare. Additionally, Field Pea offers grazing boards, like classic cheese and charcuterie or smoked trout. Plus, Field Pea offers plated dinners that include entrees like wood-grilled salmon and beef tenderloin. Additionally, customers can contract chef stations that might feature a low country boil or polenta bar.
If requested, Field Pea can also procure offerings from Noble Food’s other establishments, such as savory brisket from Noble Smoke or flakey pastries from Copain. Field Pea brings these staple restaurant items into homes, offices, and event venues around the Queen City.
Little Pea, Big Impact
The eponymous field pea encompasses a broad range of legumes, from black eyed peas to crowder peas and purple hull peas, that flourishes in the warm climates of the southeast. Farmers have historically grown field peas between rice and corn harvests as a rotational crop. This is because they are uniquely able to restore nutrients to starved soil. In this way, they restore the land for the next season’s crop.
“I grew up eating field peas right out of my grandfather’s garden. I grew them in my own garden decades later,” says Noble. “Aside from their flavor, I love what they represent: simplicity, nourishment, replenishment, and taking care of those around you.”
This ethos sits at the heart of Field Pea Catering. If Noble Food & Pursuits’ other ventures are any indication, this is certain to be a local success. We expect it to be some of the best catering in Charlotte, NC.
