ORLANDO With the Republican National Convention just 10 days away, caterers around Tampa are busy finalizing menus and preparing food to serve some of the estimated 50,000 media, delegates, and other guests expected to come to town for the event. From hospitality areas to luncheons to late-night parties, there will be dozens of events each day, August 26-30, in venues around Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater. Good Food Catering Company is one of the official caterers for the convention, providing a variety of fare for 17 events each day for a total of more than 2,400 guests, primarily at the main convention site, the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Owner and chef Kevin Lacassin shared this preview of what he plans to serve.
