When you love to cook, preparing and serving food can be one of the most rewarding experiences. And when you get to be a part of a fantastic event, its easy to have your expectations exceeded….
Yesterday Silver Caterers provided food and service for the Sea Cliff Civic Association’s new comers cocktail party. I could be wrong, but it seems an event like this one has become more and more unique over the years. Going past the welcome to the neighborhood jello mold apple pie, Sea Cliff welcomes their new home owners with a gathering full of food, drinks, and great conversation. This year I was asked to provide the food and I wanted it to be perfect.
The finger food menu consisted of two bruschettas (a tomato basil and a chickpea and arugula), asparagus wrapped in prosciutto, miniature spinach quiches, tuscan stuffed mushrooms, and shrimp cakes with a roasted red pepper sauce. I only had the time to snap a few cell phone pics but I was thrilled with the way the food looked and tasted. And by the looks of the empty platters, the Sea Cliff community agreed.
