Food Trends

Food. It's everyone's favorite topic isn't it? Well it's ours. And since you're reading our blog we'll assume you're pretty keen on food too.
So we thought it would be lovely to do little post on some of our current food obsessions coming to a party near you...

First up is this visually stunning appetizer of beet atop Greek yogurt, it's a simple appetizer but the addition of fresh mint makes the flavors more complex and absolutely delicious!  

Next on our list is an absolute favorite of ours, White Gazpacho. Gazpacho is traditionally a tomato based cold soup of spain. In this white edition the soup is made of a cucumber base. It's very creamy, surprisingly tangy, and refreshing! On top of that it can be served as a soup course or in shot glasses during cocktail hour.

2013 will definitely mark the comeback of deviled eggs in the food world, and we couldn't be happier about it! We've been crafting up a few different kinds in our kitchen, our top creations include a jalapeno bacon deviled egg (pictured below), a pesto deviled egg(pictured lower), and the refined classic deviled egg; which is the traditional deviled egg topped with Crème fraîche and caviar.

My personal favorite is our new Ahi Street Taco. It's basically heaven in a crispy wonton shell. That is NOT in any way an over exaggeration.


Our chef would probably describe it more along the lines of it being seared ahi topped with a mango jicama slaw, and a teriyaki drizzle.

Last but not least we have our English sweet pea crostini (which is definitely Colette's favorite).
Fresh pureed English sweet-peas on a delicious toasty crostini topped with greek yogurt and feta. Perfect for spring and summer parties!
What foods are you looking forward to most this upcoming party season? Tell us in the comments below!

  1. Can't make up my mind...these all look so tempting! But for ease of serving at a wedding social, I'd have to go with the deviled eggs (in any yummy variation)!
