If you really want your next meeting, party, or other event to be spectacular start with catering by The Crack Shack! With a menu created by restaurateur, television personality, and cookbook author, Chef Richard Blais you can feel confident you’re treating your guests to some of the best catering in San Diego or Encinitas.

Chef Blais partnered with executive chef Jon Sloan to “elevate” the chicken and the egg while honoring owner Michael Rosen’s intense love of all things chicken. The restaurant’s menu puts poultry at its center; chicken and eggs—fried, grilled, and even deviled—are a part of just about every dish and can be picked up or delivered to your door in time for your next event.


Thoughtfully Crafted Recipes

The Crack Shack’s catering menu doesn’t skimp on quality. If you’re a fan of the fine-casual spot, you can expect the same delicious fare and thoughtful use of ingredients as part of your catered order.

Each recipe is built around locally raised, free-living chickens that are fed with all natural, antibiotic-free grains. Beyond the chicken and eggs, the restaurant uses top-quality produce sourced from boutique farms. Blais and Sloan transform these ingredients into elevated culinary creations and, of course, the perfect fried chicken recipe.

Before settling on their signature item, the culinary team experimented with different brines, salt levels, flour mixtures, and spices for months before the restaurant opened. And the result is addicting.

You can try the fried chicken alone in all its glory, or order a catering package that serves it as part of a specialty sandwich. But no matter what you order, you’ll be able to taste the quality ingredients and bold flavors chefs Blais and Sloan thoughtfully put into each recipe.
