The mashed potato bar is a catering staple that is consistently a crowd pleaser at every wedding and event we feature it. Affordable and popular, this is a great item to include in your event menu as it compliments almost any main dish you choose to include. Having a variety of toppings displayed in an elegant way makes this simple side dish go from ordinary to chic, and your guests will enjoy making their own creation with bacon, fresh chives, an assortment of cheeses, and farm fresh veggies. mashed potato bar-1

Char or no char: How do you roast your marshmallow?

Do you like it just a little bit warm so it melts when you smash it in between graham crackers, or do you like to sear it on the exterior and taste the char when you take your first bite?

The S’more is a roasted marshmallow mingled with melted chocolate on a graham cracker, and is everyone’s favorite campfire dessert. A sophisticated s’mores bar makes a perfect and fun addition for your next party or wedding.

Kids and adults love to roast their own marshmallows, since everyone has their own level of char preference, which makes it a fun and interactive activity in addition to a tasty treat. We featured one at a rustic chic wedding at Thompson Farms, and it was a huge hit with all of the guests.

Caprese Salad Skewers

When we cater an event, our creative culinary team puts a big emphasis on designing a menu that will be visually complimentary to the event decor. These caprese salad skewers are a great example of food that looks pretty and tastes exceptional: the fresh mozzarella layered with a basil leaf and cherry tomato with house-made balsamic vinegar in a special toothpick is a pass-around vegetarian appetizer that everyone can enjoy, and the display adds an element of sophistication to the event.
