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!
