Done to Your Taste's Signature Sundance Popcorn

Sundance Film Festival celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. In the past three decades the little independent festival up the hill has become an international destination for cinema lovers and a make-it-or-break-it venue for aspiring filmmakers. It has also become a great place to eat. There are hundreds of Sundance-related parties and the season is a high point for local caterers, inspiring some of their best work.

For 17 years, Done to Your Taste catering has been serving the Sundance Film Festival, providing food for up to 90 events during the 10 days of the festival. In addition to smaller private events, for several years Cuisine Unlimited has produced the final Sundance Gala for more than 500 guests. Here are some of the hits from the two companies' menus.
