One person asked me for a quote for a small wedding reception and another business man asked for my card because his business also does small seminars and they need a caterer.
Overall, it was a smashing success. Here are some pictures.
Breakfast Seminar: Bagels, Muffins and Fruit...
The infamous flower made out of a melon...
Fruit Platter...Drink Table...(Looks better in person-the candles made the water glow!)
Full Frontal...Side Saddle...Tuna Wasabi Wontons (A HUGE hit) and Spicy Shrimp Canapes (Also a favorite)
Bacon Wrapped Filets with fresh Blue Cheese Dressing...
Sundried Tomato Spirals...These are actually delicious (everyone who tasted them said so) but they didn't really get eaten by alot of people. I think it's because of the way they look. Next time, I'm going to put the filling in a cup type dough and put a bit more cheese to make them more appealing to the eye.
Dessert...Me in "action"...Chocolate Truffle Cakes...At first I didn't top these with whipped cream and they looked like...um...dog poop cakes. See above. Good choice in topping them with a little bit of heaven, don't ya think?!Scones with Sweet Cream and Strawberries... The Spread...
Spicy Corn Cakes with Mango Salsa...OUT OF THIS WORLD!
The kitchen-notice the 2 TOASTER OVENS I had to work with!
*I need a bigger car
*If I am going to make puff pastry, I should do it at least 2 days in advance
*Home made puff pastry doesn't taste much different than store bought when using it for little bouchees-but for Beef Wellies, it's essential.
*Pastry bags are your friend
*Do not pipe chocolate ganache in a round spiral.
*I need a business card holder to place on the beverage table to fuel more referrals.
*I really am good
