Healthy Centerpieces

Looking for a healthy appetizer that also doubles as a fabulous centerpiece? Check out these cool Garden Vegetable Crudite centerpieces I made for a pool party last weekend! I used wheat grass as the base, and skewered a fun assortment of veggies and voila! There you go! Our chefs made a yummy yogurt-fresh dill dip as an accompaniment – I delivered to the party and they were immediately put on the tables. So fun, festive, and delicious!

June Wedding, Mohonk Preserve

This past weekend we catered our first wedding of the season at the stunning Slingerland Pavillion on the Mohonk Preserve. What a delightful location with panoramic views facing west for the full sunset effect!

For those of you who have never had the experience of cooking and serving a four star dinner to 125 guests under a tent – enjoy the shots of our “camping kitchen”. Another fun detail: the bride and groom chose wheat grass with heirloom seed packets labeled with each guest’s name and table number as their “seating chart”! Very creative and fun.
