Harvest, reap, seed, and sow.
That's how to watch a garden grow.
But if there's one thing that we know
it's JOY that makes the garden glow!
Thank you for helping that joy continue to the kitchens!
I hope that you are having a FANTASTIC time off and loving this weather.
I just wanted to send you a note and say thank you. Thanks for believing in Fresh Roots, and for helping make this all possible. You are the man!

Good morning Fabio, As always, our events were a great success and as usual, your staff bent over backwards to make it so. My client’s customers had such a good time and the food was so delicious, one customer who attended Monday night called on Tuesday morning asking if they could come again. It is always such a treat working with you Fabio and of course, Mike and the boys as well - you are all such nice people and consummate professionals. I sincerely hope FC and JTI will have the opportunity to host more events at the ICC in the near future. I look forward to receiving the digital copies of the invoices at our earliest convenience. Cheers and many thanks.

Dear Fabio, I wanted to say a special thank you to you and your team in all you provided for us. The celebration was very enjoyed by all, and we look forward to booking again for future gatherings. One of our guests is going to contact you regarding her 50th birthday celebration next year, looking to do similar to what we organized. I’m not sure how often the Bocce courts are available to families, but I can say it was the perfect game to bring together many ages: from kids to grandparents, so hoping we can drop in to play again from time to time during regular hours. Grazie mille!

Post in the Vancouver Sun:
RING TIME: As for broken noses, the Confratellanza Italo-Canadese and North Burnaby Boxing Club’s 10-bout Night of Fights helped fund those organization’s scholarship and boxing programs. It also benefited the East End Boys Club and Camp Miriam. Italian Cultural Centre catering director Fabio Rasotto all but knocked out 600 attendees with pork spareribs, roast beef, chicken, salmon, pesto pasta, five salads, cold cuts, cheese and Italian pastries. The Angelo Branca Sportsman of the Year award went to local boxer Tommy Boyce, who won 175 of 185 amateur and 17 of 18 pro fights. An earlier recipient, Olympian Manny Sobral, founded and heads the Burnaby club. Calling under-141-pound light welterweight Freya Orr’s split-decision win over Aanika Sehgal, “a barn burner and fight of the night,” Sobral said the latter “feels better about her body image and more confident” after shedding 60 pounds at Surrey’s Savard Boxing Gym.
