Last week we catered an event that we had been working on since 12 August of 2017. It was a showroom grand opening for JSI Cabinetry. The making of this event was full of twist and turns and rescheduled opening dates, but it finally came to fruition, and oh did it produce grand fruit. The showroom was gorgeous, and I can understand now why the date was postponed. It was to reveal a showroom that was truly stellar. My contact there was coordinating the completion of the showroom and the event from her office in Fall River Ma. In designing the menu, we went through several menu concepts starting with a grand cocktail reception, to multiple action stations. Our final product was a fun menu consisting of four stations that would engage all attendees. Our menu was:
Station 1: A Build Your Own Taco Bar, with Ground Turkey, Ground Beef, Soft Tortilla Shells, Tortilla Chips, Salsa, Pico de Gallo, Sour Cream, Shredded Cheddar, Jalapenos, Chopped Tomatoes, Cilantro, Chopped Red Onions, Shredded Lettuce, Black Beans, and Rice.
Station 2: A Southern-inspired Picnic menu: Mini Burgers with pickles and cheese (each burger was about 1.5 inches in diameter, bite-size, the cutest little things), Mini Frank in a Bun, also 1.5 inches long, our famous Loaded Mini Mac & Cheese Cupcakes with Collards and Bacon and our Shot Glass French Fries with Ketchup Dippers
Station 3: Dessert featured the topic of conversation “Captain Crunch Encrusted, Deep Fried Peanut Butter, and Jelly Sandwich”. This was a HUGE hit. The station also had an Artisan Cheese and Fruit platter.
Station 4: Our Beverage Station consisting of Basil Infused Lemonade, Pineapple Sweetened Iced Tea and our Cucumber and Strawberry infused Water.
