An assortment of delicious savory & sweet goodies!

Had the pleasure to cater a fantastic house warming party for my new client's Andrew and Patty. They had just remodeled their home and it was perfect for entertaining with an outdoor wet bar and fireplace in the backyard, including an outdoor kitchen. What a fabulous home to work in. I also ran into other client's that live down the street from them, so it was fun to also see familiar faces. Finger foods galore.....remember, "Good Food Is Always In Style"!

Birthday Party in San Mateo

Endive Stuffed with Dried Apricots, Herbed Cheese & Toasted Walnuts

Artichoke, Ricotta & Parmesan Phyllo Tartlets

Strawberry & Goat Cheese Bruschetta with Balsamic Glaze & Pistachios

Had the pleasure to cater a bithday party for my client's Maria & Vern in San Mateo a couple of weeks' ago. My Hor D'Ouevres are a very popular option and they had serveral to choose from and linger over with great friends and family. They served a really great aged Rum from Guatemala that was very enjoyable, it was like a cognac with a great sweet nutty flavor. P.S.-Vern's piano playing really set the mood for this fabulous summer party!
