One of the things I love most about running a catering company is that I get to explore so many different types of food. With today being Fat Tuesday and the Mardi Gras atmosphere is all around I thought that we would jump into the spirit of the festivities and theme all of our lunches this week with the Mardi Gras feel. Now, I am not a Southerner, but I do have friends who are and I was able to call them up and get some real strong feed back. After a bit more research I decided that the lunches we serve to our corporate clients would be as follows:
Dijon and brown sugar glazed ham
Louisiana red beans and rice
Red Velvet Cake
It was a lot of fun to put this meal together. We served the white rice in a chafer with the red beans poured over the top, a very traditional presentation and of course, there is nothing like a piece of Red Velvet Cake for dessert. Presentation is a vital part of our service so we used some Mardi Gras decor to top off the event. All in all, I am quite pleased with the outcome.
A note to all, as a convenience to our clients we design a new menu each week. Should the circumstance occur that we visit the same doctor’s office twice in the same week, we change up the menu so that we are not delivering the same food twice. Also, should any of our clients have a special request we accommodate that with no penalty.
Have a filling day,
