Women's Connection Fashion Show

Yesterday we had such a great time catering for the lovely ladies of the Valencia Women's Connection. They enjoyed an apple stuffed chicken, raspberry asparagus, zucchini chocolate coffee bread, a berry spinach salad in a poppy seed dressing, an apple harvest salad in an orange vinaigrette, and a watermelon and feta salad. Special thanks to the ladies of White House Black Market (at the Valencia Patios) for modeling your new spring and summer looks during the fashion show! See you ladies next month!

Cooking Class

Today we had a fun time teaching at a bridal shower. The ladies started with naan bread with hummus, green beans with a saffron aioli, and mini ramekins of our 6 cheese mac and cheese. Each guest got to watch and participate during 6 different recipes including an artichoke stuffed garlic bread, a cape cod chopped salad, a california grilled panini, a grilled strawberry and goat cheese panini, a toblerone sauce to go over mixed berries and bananas, and an angel food mini cupcake. The girls all got to take home a cookbook of these recipes and also a few others. Since we were running around so much, pictures weren't taken too often, but here a a few shots of our prepped tastes and paninis!

Dela Salle Meeting

We've been busy this weekend! Yesterday we catered for the always lovely Dela Salle group and whipped up some new and very tasty dishes. To start guests got to munch on various Naan breads (traditional, garlic, and curry) with hummus and green breads with saffron aioli. For the main course, we served our apple harvest salad and berry salad in a poppy seed dressing with garlic bread, a 6 cheese mac and cheese, a penne pasta with sausage, shrimp and pepperoncinis, grilled mixed vegetables and leeks, and tri-tips. Strawberries and cream and a butterfinger cheesecake were devoured for dessert.
