Quality of Presentation:
Every element of the menu was designed to impress and help achieve an unforgettable evening. The table design incorporated fresh house made breads and butters as a centerpiece. Guests were treated to two different salads to sway away from the norm. The Heirloom Tomato Farro salad plate presentation was inspired by a farmers market while the watermelon burrata salad had a more modern flair. The vegan corn fritters was a one dish wonder that was gluten free, diary free, nut free, and soy free which showcased a circumference of dietary needs.
The miso butter salmon featured a new technique using salmon skin as a crisp garnish creating a dramatic presentation. For an artistic elegance, we painting a bold stripe down the middle of the vincotto chicken dish to produce a great contrast piece. We also wanted to showcase two different desserts, so we started with a simple brie and jam trifle that was displayed on charming little cutting boards. We then worked up our way to the rich honey spice cake. Not only was this dessert beautiful and playfully interactive, but equally decadent and the perfect ending to an extraordinary meal.
