Talk about a FUNDAY! I catered an event for a regular customer and it was truly something special. It started out as an “end of the summer pool party”, however, at the time we planned this, we had a hurricane coming our way. So we postponed, but now there was no special occasion. It just became a Sunday football party!! What was so fun about this party, was how they designed their home to host- the outdoors and indoors became one space and it was awesome! There were TVs all over the house with different games on so all fans can watch their teams. There was even a large TV over their Wolf grill and the host made sure I was able to watch my game as I cook! Because the party was outside and inside, some of their guests even arrived in their yachts! Never saw that before! LOL But how fun! They had a DJ, 2 bartenders, a poker dealer, and me, the chef! Yes, this really happened! It was sooo fun!
*Crudite platter with hummus, tzatziki, veggies, pita
*Arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette
*Antipasto pasta salad
*Vegetable paninis with pesto
*Sliders with all sorts of toppings
*Coleslaw with champagne vinaigrette
*Sweet and savory Chex party mixes
It was a lot of food for 45 people and EVERYONE loved it! 3 of the guests even told me that my peach cobbler was 10x better than what they had in Georgia! I mean, what a compliment! I knew it was good, because I made 3 large bakers of it and it was gone so fast! Every time I loaded up the slider station with burgers, they were gone before I knew it. I came up with the menu when the host mentioned how they wanted pool party food. What was really great, is there were no dietary restrictions! Though, I wanted to keep it kid friendly and definitely something that adults would want to eat. It was the perfect blend of both.
I literally cannot wait to cater another event for them!
Be on the lookout for the next post! It’s going to be all about Thanksgiving! Yes, it’s next month and I’m really looking forward to it! And be sure to follow on instagram! I love a good food picture and I’m going to be posting videos soon! EEEK! But I’m excited to take it to the next level! Have a great weekend! xoxo
