by Date February 28,2015

Besides the brides as the center of weddings, cakes own the second spotlight. Brides-to-be shouldn’t focus all their energy on elegant gowns. Give enough time deciding on the event’s centerpiece. Here are some nifty tips to keep away from disasters. Wedding Planning 1) Last minute planning doesn’t make sense. A reputable baker has a long waiting list so book him in advance to display his masterpiece at your wedding. A pastry maker has to order ingredients and decorations before creating your order. Baker 2) Choose a reputable baker. The inexpensive ones are mostly new to the craft, you’d be the lab rat. Handpick the baker who has the style that’s right down your alley.

Vegetarian Recipes: Your Meatless Dinner is Served!

by Date February 25,2014

Years ago, an upscale catered affair meant caviar, heavy, cream-soaked dishes, and prawn cocktails whilst the guests smoked the night away. If something wasn’t appealing to your particular taste buds, well, that was just too bad. Of course, times have certainly changed, and the catering industry has changed along with them. Many people are requesting fresher, lighter and healthier fare, and today’s caterer acknowledges that tastes and lifestyles are widely varied, and will be able to create menu and dishes that will tantalize his entire clientele. The primary reason for hiring a caterer is to ensure everyone’s dietary preferences will be, well, catered to, so first things first: let’s nix the idea that vegetarians and vegans live only on salads! Of course, a beautiful, green, leafy salad can be enticing, but vegetarian and vegan dishes range from mild to spicy with a medley of interesting ingredients which can be tempting…

Healthy Catering Menu Ideas

by Date February 24,2014

If you have an event in which you are aiming to impress, save yourself the hassle and have the event catered. Spend time to focus on perfecting your event and leave the other stuff to the caterer instead of spending all your time grocery shopping, cooking and making preparations. Just remember that you want to have a menu that is filled with delicious, filling and healthy options so that everyone that comes to your event will leave satisfied and smiling. Here are a few Charleston caterer’s suggestions that you can bring to your caterer for your healthy event. Appetizers Vegetable trays are a little out of date and ranch dressing is the least healthy salad dressing you can offer. Instead of dip, try something like hummus with warm pita bread. A tablespoon of hummus only has 25 calories and hummus can be modified for a variety of flavors and palates….

A Food Lover’s Guide to Finger Foods for Parties

by Date February 20,2014

People tend to think of the guest list, atmosphere or goodie bags as the best parts of any event or party, but the food is an element that should never be overlooked. Underwhelming food options can put a certain tone to an otherwise good time. People do not want to drink as much, don’t want to stay as long and it gives the appearance of cheap service. But if you don’t have a large budget to work with or the event will not be going for terribly long, then some delicious and portion controlled finger foods could be just the ticket. So for your next event, give your guests what they really want: a great time and some yummy treats. 1) Sliders When you’re serving finger food, it is important to remember three things. One, you want to serve something that can be easily picked up. Two, you want to…

Unforgettable Wedding Dessert Ideas

by Date December 17,2013

2013 has been a huge year for weddings so far, with some very notable styles and trends emerging. One of the fresher styles in 2013 has been the emergence of feathers. We’ve seen feathers used as centerpieces of tables, we’ve seen dresses absolutely covered in feathers, a feather pinned to the tuxedo of the groom and a lot more. Depending on how bold you`re feeling, you can do with minimal plumage or go all out – either way, you can’t go wrong with feathers in 2013! Another hot trend in 2013 has been long wedding dresses, likely inspired by Kate Middleton’s gorgeous dress that went on for days. The final wedding dress trend worth mentioning is that lace sleeves are IN! But we`re not going to focus any more on wedding dresses or styles; it`s time to talk about dessert!

How to Choose Wine Like A Real Frenchman

by Date December 12,2013

When it comes to wine, France is the place to go. There’s a clichéd stereotype of the French man as being someone who doesn’t care for much beyond wine, and whilst that’s not true – it is true that a French man takes his wine drinking very seriously. In this country, wine is something that should be enjoyed alongside food. It is almost never ordered in a restaurant or a cafe without food. It is also quite unusual for a French person to drink wine, with their food, in the late evening. Red wine, in particular, is a favorite choice for afternoon meals. Sometimes, it is even drunk with early morning breakfast snacks – this does tend to be on special occasions, like fete days. The question is – are you choosing wine like a real French man? Quality Over Quantity One of the big differences between wine in France…
