Rich and Simple


A celebration is meant for everyone to come together with full hearts, shared stories, and gathering around a meal. Our presentation mirrors that: we offer a hearty menu, passed hors d’oeuvres, and food for communities to be enjoyed around.

We start by sharing appetizers like Organic Medjool Dates: a natural sweetness stuffed with robust Gorgonzola cheese and salted pecans. It is a favorite amongst the crowds and is easy to eat while in the midst of a conversation.

Spanikopita is another of our appetizers. It is a flakey filo dough triangle stuffed with creamy Feta and spinach.

smoked-salmon-on-potato-pancakesWe serve a piping-hot and smoked tid bit of salmon atop a fried Potato Pancake with Crème Fraiche and Dill. Not only is it a visual piece of art, but it tastes as good as it looks.

The first part of the shared dishes was a rich Mediterranean Platter with Goat cheese (the third cheese of the evening; they keep getting better), and red bell peppers roasted to perfection then marinated in lemon zest, parsley, anchovies, fennel, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil. This is served with baguette slices to be assembled as you please.

The buffet consisted of a hot mushroom frittata: a baked scramble of cage-free eggs, roasted cremini mushrooms, pungent chives, and grated cheddar cheese. To complement these two dishes, we baked cheddar and dill scones, which brought in some flavors from the hors d’oeuvres as well.

For fresh sweetness to even out the richness, we offered a tray of fresh cut fruits and apple cinnamon bread with coffee, tea, and orange juice.

Individually, these delicious foods hold their own unique richness. Together, they form a wholesome eating experience and communal atmosphere.

The highlight of dessert was lemon-curd filled pastry cups served cold with a fresh berry or two on top. A trifecta of flavors and textures coming together for a perfect bite.
