Black, Gold, and Glitz

 

In December, we had the opportunity to serve a 12 course birthday meal for one of our clients. Chef Lou was given free reign over the dinner menu and so our event manager decided to go all out on for a glam and glitz look.

Coral and Teal

 

With every wedding come a color scheme and a style. Some like it casual, and some more elegant. One of our brides in July hosted her reception at Sleepy Ridge in Orem and it was beau-ti-ful! She incorporated her coral and teal colors with a vintage style (no burlap here!) and a very classic, graceful style.

Rustic Wedding in Hobble Creek

 

One of the prettiest places in Utah is Hobble Creek Canyon. It is beautiful mountain country just minutes away from Springville. In June, we had the opportunity to cater a wonderful wedding ceremony and reception up at the Hobble Creek Lodge. The lodge is nestled up against the canyon walls and has many beautiful landscaping features in addition to the massive house. The owners rent this space for family vacationers as well as weddings.

Elegant Winter Dinner

For one of our events in December we decided to play off the colors of the season.
They had a wonderful dining table and with our decorations the setting was very glamorous.

 Lots of silver, crystal, white and glitter to make this dinner an elegant feast.

 silver beads, mirrored plates, and crystal beads

 Elegant white, iridescent, and silver Christmas tree bulbs were perfect

 And finally flickering candlelight from tea lights and votives 
was the perfect finishing touch

To welcome the guests we provided them with our classic Blood Orange Pomtini

 For our Amuse Bouche we had Green Apple and Wasabi sorbet garnished with green apple bits


  

For one of our appetizers we served a warm Pork Crostini: seasoned pork, sage cream, sauteed onions on top of an herbed crostini and garnished with a fried sage leaf

 Our salad had pears, blackberries, walnuts, and handmade

Sometimes, it’s the presentation that puts a dish over the top.
Keeping busy at the stove!


 Our main course was a dish native to Argentina. Matambre is a rolled flank steak with proscuitto, spinach, bread crumbs and seasonings.
Here, we accompanied it with a serving of mashed potatoes and shelled edamame.


How To Make a Creative Candleholder

How to make an Artichoke Candleholder decoration
1). Buy Artichokes fresh. They are in season in the Spring and early Summer.

Cut off the stem to make a level base. Use a sharp knife. For recommendations on knives, see Chef Lou’s top Kitchen Gadgets

Next, cut off the top because it looks more clean.

Open it up, hollow out a space for your candle and remove the inner leaves.

Complete! Great for rustic and modern table decorations.
