A wedding weekend to remember

Posted by Jeanne on September 12, 2010

Neil and Sara got married last weekend – I didn’t cater their actual wedding, but they had a big party after their groom’s dinner on Friday and a brunch on Sunday that I did do.

Neil and Mitch worked together in the past, and Neil was a guest at Mitch’s graduation party in June.  After tasting the food there, Neil asked for my card and about six weeks later I had an email asking me to cater their events.  It was a lot of fun and the food was DELICIOUS, if I do say so myself!

There aren’t a ton of pictures from Friday night because the party started near dusk and the light was just not working – but I did get a few.

Mac & cheese bites:

Mediterranean lavosh – hummus, cucumbers, kalamatas:

Margherita lavosh:

There were also caprese skewers with a balsamic vinaigrette, lamb lollipops with a mint/yogurt sauce, andouille pigs in a blanket with a remoulade sauce,and chicken satay with a peanut sauce.

And of course, dessert:

Red velvet cake balls and flourless honey-roasted peanut & chocolate chunk cookies from Words to Eat By.  Apparently the red velvet cake balls were the hit of the night.

Sunday morning there was a brunch so everyone could enjoy themselves and relax together with the happy couple a bit more.  There was creme brulee french toast and quiche Lorraine:

A bagel bar with cream cheese, lox, sliced onions & tomato, and strawberry jam; cut melon with basil; and spiced roast potatoes.

And you can’t forget the mimosa bar with orange juice, mango puree, and papaya puree – and the crowning glory, the bloody Mary bar with jalapeno-infused vodka.

There were quite a few logistical challenges with catering an event for so many people so far away from where we live and in a different kitchen!  I think we met the challenge and made Neil and Sara some delicious food for a couple of great parties.

And man, I wish there was some red velvet cake left.  That was AWESOME.
