When I got the call to come over for a preview of party noshings, my only question was, "How fast can I get there???"
Cheese presentation (on slate) with with pear moustarda
Fun cocktail napkins are great conversation starters....
The birthday boy...and party samples (detailed shot below).
Kris makes a beautiful spread, doesn't she?
One of each, plated
I love Kris' food. She designs menus that are packed with fresh flavors...and often feature a surprising twist. Vegetarian options are never a compromise...and delight meat eaters and vegetarians alike. Visually, the colors pop, adding to the festive party spirit...and her stream-lined platters create an easy, elegant touch.
Here's a look at the menu:
Tomato Basil Emulsion w/ rustic bread
Pecan Salmon Bites w/ crème fraiche asparagus tartar sauce
Herbed Chicken Medallions w/ ginger mandarin reduction
Asparagus wrapped in wontons w/ fresh lemon & kosher salt
Spinach Cakes topped w/ garlic jalapeno goat cheese, cherry tomato & shiso
Fried Goat Cheese & Cucumber topped w/ balsamic reduction, basil & lemon zest
Baked Figs wrapped in prosciutto & stuffed with blue cheese (Marc's contribution)
Assorted Cheese Board with pear moustarda (Marc's contribution)
Great food with a fabulous view and even better company...what more could you ask for?
Happy Birthday, Marc!
