Last time you went on vacation, all you brought back was a stinking T-shirt. When L.A. caterers Tehra Thorp and Jamie Wheeler returned from a week in Cartagena, they brought back a new business: Ceviche & Co. Inspired by the neighborhood cevicheria across from their hotel, Wheeler (an associate producer) and Thorp (a chef who has done stints with Cook’s Library and Cecconi’s) put a California spin on the Colombian mainstay: peach and shrimp with habanero, cilantro, lemon, spicy pepitas, and black sesame; and butter-poached Dungeness crab with grapefruit, Thai chile, micro basil, and heirloom green tomato and avocado salsa. Available by special order, appetizers, tapas, and family-style portions elevate the spread at any get-together. With a little notice, the duo builds full-on feasts incorporating West African, Spanish, and Caribbean cuisines. Keep an eye on the company’s Facebook page and newsletter for pop-up dinners and tastings. They’re duty-free dining at its finest. For more information, go to cevechiandco.com. Catering quotes are available upon request. Photo: Courtesy of Ceviche & Co.
