Proof of the Pudding, a Southern-based catering group in the U.S., has announced a concessions partnership with Informa U.S. Boat Shows for five events in Florida: the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), the Miami Yacht Show, the Palm Beach International Boat Show, the St. Petersburg Boat Show and the Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota.

The new partnership will kick off with the 59th annual Fort Lauderdale show, set to take place Oct. 31-Nov. 4.
“Proof of the Pudding’s innovation in large-scale outdoor culinary services is poised to transform the food offerings at FLIBS into an upscale and unique culinary experience,” Andrew Doole, general manager of Informa U.S. Boat Shows, stated in a news release.

With 39 years of food service and management experience, Proof of the Pudding is planning a “Ports of Call” theme for food stations at FLIBS, including Cabo San Lucas (Mexican), Portofino (Italian), the British Virgin Islands (Caribbean), the Greek Isles (Greek), and the French Riviera (Parisian). Beverages planned for FLIBS include specialty cocktails, premium wines and a full line of craft beers.

For this year’s show, Proof of the Pudding mixologist Anthony Schuch will team with local brewers to add an onsite “guest brewer” to each drink station.

In addition to overseeing the management and operations for all of the shows’ food and beverage areas, Proof of the Pudding also will offer catering reservations for exhibitors and auxiliary show events. Exhibitors will be able to place online orders in advance for selected catering options, such as daily lunch for employees working the show, or arrange custom menus for parties and receptions.

“On the culinary side, I am very excited to be collaborating with our Florida-based providers to deliver amazing food and beverage options for exhibitors and guests that highlight the unique flavors of each of the boat shows’ host cities,” stated Proof of the Pudding Corporate Executive Chef Vagn Nielsen. “We will be featuring everything from flavorful fish tacos and stone crabs to authentic wood-fired pizza, with plenty of options for every taste and budget.”
