Fall Sit Down Dinner Birthday Party in Hillsborough!

     Turning 50 is a milestone and celebrating it with friends and family is the way to do it, but celebrating it a special way with gourmet catering it the real way to do it.  The butler and his team mates did again with style, grace and plenty of flavor with this delicious gourmet sit down dinner.  The host and hostess and all the guests were pleased, to the point that they could not breathe!  I didn't mean to stuff them all to the gills, but sometimes it happens.

      As guests arrived at the party we started off their appetite with some passed hor d'ouevres, first with my newest creation, olive tapenade and goat cheese palmiers, so good, tangy and savory and goes so well with a dry martini.  Second was my famous Korean marinated tuna tartare with wasabi edammame puree on a wonton crisp and third was a fabuous crunchy roasted corn, chili and cheese phyllo tartlet.

     The seated dinner started off with the seasonal favorite, creamy butternut squash soup with sour cream, followed by a fresh and crisp mixed spring green salad with apples, smoked bacon, fresh figs, blue cheese and a wonderful bacon sherry vinaigrette.  The dinner was a tender and juicy steak au poivre beef tenderloin with creamy Gruyere cheese mashed potato gratin with a parmesan tuile and we can forget something green on the plate; haricots vert with sundried tomatoes and that's a dinner you would not forget!

40th Birthday Celebration in San Jose

Catered a 40th birthday celebration for a new client in San Jose this past September.  It was a sunny and warm afternoon with hungry guests celebrating and eating up all the delicious food.  Special occasions and casual affairs should be catered, this way you can be a guest at your own party and actually enjoy yourself without having to worry about anything, I'm sure you can remember all the parties that you have been stuck in the kitchen sweating over a hot stove and you were the guest of honor, no less!

At Butler For Hire Catering we take care of setting up the party for you, making sure the buffet table is always stocked, passing appetizers to your guests and if you wish, we can supply a bartender for you to take care of mixing and serving the drinks for you.  Not to mention, we clean as we go and clean up everything at the end of the party, so you don't have to!  So, next time you have a special celebration to host don't do this yourself and don't go to a restaurant, where you will fee rushed to leave, just call will be worth every penny.  Look me up on the web
and remember...You can tell your friends that "The Butler Did It!"
