Engagement Chronicles: Tasting Part II

Pinterest

A couple weekends ago, Steven and I met with another caterer and tasted their food. So we had a very big lunch.

But since Steven is a picky eater we had some pretty generic entrees. The hors d’ oeuvres were a different story.

Appetizers:
Stuffed mushrooms with sausage and cheese
Spicy chicken wontons
Smoked mozzarella cups with honey
Goat cheese puffs with chopped pear
Crab cakes with Creole mayonnaise
Bruschetta

Salads:
Mixed greens with watercress, olives, hearts of palm and feta cheese with a white balsamic vinaigrette
Mixed greens with dates, oranges, dried cranberries, spiced almonds and parmesan with honey thyme vinaigrette

Entrées:
Sirloin with a red wine sauce
Grilled chicken with:
-A lemon herb beurre blanc (creamy sauce)
-Assorted sauces: corn and black bean salsa, mango salsa, mushroom sauce

Sides:Medley- snow peas, carrots, broccoli and peppers
Roasted green beans with cherry tomatoes


This food was delicious! The assorted hors d’oeuvres seemed weird written on the paper but after trying them, they were amazing. I LOVED the goat cheese puffs with pears. It was warm and sweet like a dessert. YUM!

Salads weren’t my favorite. I would have switched a few things between them to make my perfect salad. Cranberries, almonds, feta cheese and balsamic vinaigrette would be my choice. But the cool thing about it is that they will customize anything we want. This aspect is wonderful!

My favorite entrée was the grilled chicken and the assorted sauces. I absolutely loved the creamy lemon sauce and the corn and black bean salsa. Both had just the right flavor for the chicken.

And to give credit where credits due: Steven actually came up with the idea of having plain chicken breasts and have assorted sauces. He is picky and we have some food allergies in our families, we thought this was the perfect idea. This way everybody can eat the chicken but can have whatever dressing/sauce they want to accompany it. [[Way to go Steven!!]] J

All in all, I would give this a rating of an 8!

Until next time…
