Catering Confidential, The Food

So, I realized that my last post was way boring, so I thought I might talk about the food.

Tomato Basil Tartelettes (Standard hors d'oeuvres)
Peppered RARE AHI TUNA w/Marinated Fennel on Small Crustini (now these are yum )
Mini Spanish Sausages (Passed w/Picks & Grain Mustard) (never had them, but I'm sure they were good)
1/2 Herbed Feta & 1/2 Tapenade on Same Toast Point (sounds too confusing on which side to eat first)
Dates Stuffed w/Gorgonzola & Wrapped in Prosciutto (now this is good, but you should try the figs replacing the dates)

7:45PM ~ Dinner ~ "Paris In The Fall" (we stayed on time with this...but maybe the last time the whole night)
1st Course: (Wine: Bandol) (didn't try it)
Seafood Mar mite w/Vanilla Broth (Oh MY! this was amazing. It was salmon, shrimp, scallops and mussles that were in a zip lock, poached in boiling water, then it had a boiling hot French Vanilla broth poured over it)
2nd Course:
Wine: Foley Syrah (didn't try it)
Traditional Cesar Salad (Cheese on the Side) & HOMEMADE Parmesan Croutons (didn't try it)
3rd Course:
Mixed Grill: Petite Fillet, Lamb Chop, Sausage & Chicken (now this was pretty damn awesome!)
Pascal's Gratin POTATO
Steamed Asparagus Spears
9:30PM****Cheese & Fruit STATION OPEN (Port & Dessert Wines - 4)
Dessert & Coffee Service
Croque en Bouche (all sorts of different fillings in the creme puffs)
Assortment of MINI Pastries (Petite Four Style)
10:15PM WEDDING CAKE by (CAKE STUDIO) (more like 11 p.m. and there was a "groom's cake" that looked like the groom's nasty old Georgetown hat.)
10:45PM Late NIGHT Nibblings (more like 12:15 p.m.)
French Onion Soup w/Crouton (didn't try it)

Outside of all the being late, the food was pretty dang good and chef did a bang up job.
