Small World, Big Flavor


Shrimp Wrapped Scallop Skewers

This weekend I had the first of many upcoming opportunities to co-cater an event with my buddy over at Y-I-EAT-N. Our collaboration was years in the making since believe it or not, we were next door neighbors until we were three years old (hence the “small world”). Catering for thirty, we had the luxury of a beautiful kitchen and great outdoor set up with massive grill at our disposal. It was a beautiful day with a menu that didn’t dissapoint:

Outdoor BBQ Menu:

Grilled Vegetable Panzanella

Orzo Pasta Salad

Cabbage, Red Onion, and Raisin Slaw

Chipotle Mac and Cheese w/ Roasted Poblanos

Shrimp and Scallop Skewers

Tomato Mozzarella and Basil Sliders

Seitan Buffalo “Chicken” Tenders

Strawberry Basil Ice Cream Sandwiches

Homemade Mango Sorbet

Grilled Vegetable Panzanella

The menu was filled with dishes that perfectly complimented each other with a really great balance of flavors. The highlights had to be the shrimp wrapped scallop skewers served with a curry yogurt dipping sauce and the tomato, basil, and mozzarella sliders. And thats just for the savory because honestly is there anything better than homemade ice cream sandwiches?

Be on the look out for some future collaborations…
