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.
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.
