60th Birthday Party
This special 60th birthday party was held at a beautiful venue in Upper Marlboro MD. My menu included, Fried chicken wings, Baked Balsamic Salmon, Mac & Cheese, Classic Potato Salad, Garden Salad with home made vinaigrette, Garlic Herb Green Beans & two home made cakes. The cakes included a homemade lemon cake with a lemon butter glaze & a raspberry infused sour cream pound cake topped with a caramel coconut glaze. This party was a huge hit and I've done other events for this client since.
An amazing Bridal Shower is essential to the bride to be. This Kentucky Derby themed Bridal Shower was held at a beautiful & historical art gallery. My menu included an apple gorgonzola salad with candied walnuts, Spanish tilapia, garlic & herb shrimp linguini, saffron rice, sautéed green beans with almonds & assorted homemade cup cakes. I also did a cotton candy martini for her signature drink. Her guest showered me with compliments and asked for my recipes. I felt proud to hit a home run and see the bride beaming.
Weddings are a special time for all who takes the leap of love. Why not wow your guest, friends and family with amazing food? At this event I prepared a gluten free menu including wheat free Belgian waffles with a homemade strawberry orange syrup, country bacon, maple sausage, scrambled eggs, home fries, a lavish fruit & cheese platter & mini salmon cakes with garlic lemon aioli. I received great reviews on my food and service and have since then done two additional events for this client.
