There is not a weekend that goes by where we are not doing tastings. Brides are coming in from all over to sort out all of their special day needs. As high end caterers, we like to make our tastings just as much of a memory for them as their actual wedding day. We love inviting potential brides right into our kitchen. We don’t have a dining room. I set up a 6ft banquet table and drape it with a white table cloth right in the middle of my kitchen. They are blessed with whatever tunes are in the background as my staff is usually preparing for whatever event we have coming up. A little Zeppelin, maybe some Beastie Boys, Outkast is always a favorite, Van Morrision, The Stones oh yeah and I can’t forget James Brown Live in Zimbabwe. Hell I might even offer them a kitchen beer, whatever the weekly flavor is, Pabst, Highlife, Bud oh and if we are feeling real fancy a Red Stripe. It’s all in the fun and it is a great way to break the ice. I want them to feel at home. It’s not everyday a glorified cook invites you into his kitchen and feeds you some of the best wedding food being served up in the surrounding area.
All in all we were delighted to cook for our potential clients a couple of weeks ago. Like I have said in my previous tasting blogs, I enjoy these because it gives me that one on one time with the bride. Letting her know that I actually CARE about how the food looks and tastes at her reception. Below are some pictures of our tasty treats. Enjoy.
Chicken/24 Brown Sugar Brine, Garlic Whipped Potatoes, Three Apple Syrup
Veal Meatballs/Herbed Tomato Sauce, Basil Oil
Crab Stuffed Bellas/Deviled Crab Stuffing, Lobster Remi
Salmon Oscar/Lump & Backfin Blue Crab Meat, Citrus Butter, Blood Orange Redux
Coffee Roasted Pork/Pineapple Pico, Carolina Rice Pilaf, Sweet Red Wine
As always we hope you enjoyed!
