Our November 13th tasting was a huge success! In case you were unable to attend, we thought we’d share some highlights from the night. We decided to host the tasting at our newly renovated office and tasting rooms in Merrifield, Fairfax. These spaces provided the perfect atmosphere for an intimate get together with clients + friends.
The night began with passed hors d’oeuvres from our new “What’s Hot Menu” including the Grilled Lamb Spiedini, the Artichoke + Gruyere Morsel, the Duck Prosciutto Foccacia, and the Mediterranean Falafel Popper. The “hottest” hors d’oeuvres of the night were the Moroccan Spiced Crab Cake + the White Truffle Shrimp Risotto Spoon. At the bar guests could quench their thirst with our Pomegranate + Purple Basil Smash while munching on Toasted Spiced Pepitas and Mini Cheddar Madelines.
As guests mingled they could visit one of two Chef Manned Stations. The first, The House Rubbed Carving Station, featured two Holiday favorites: The Caribbean Sugarcane Turkey + The Coffee Rubbed Flat Iron Steak. The Second Station, The Innovative Mac + Cheese Station, displayed our very popular and decedent Lobster Mac + Cheese and the less sinful Grilled Chicken and Artichoke Mac + Cheese.
The Holiday Buffet offered a location for guests to serve themselves + taste some winter favorites including the Deviled Crab Stuffed Tilapia, Winter Spinach Salad with Aged Jack & Tart Green Apple, Roma Stuffed Chicken + Asparagus Mashed Potatoes.
For guests with a sweet tooth, we offered a dessert bar with a selection of sweets. There was everything from Homemade Chocolate Twinkies, Mini Dutch Apple Crisp Vessels, Holiday Assorted Truffles + even Mini Chocolate Donuts and Milk Shooter.
As a thank you, we sent our guests home with a holiday favorite: Homemade White Chocolate Peppermint Bark. Thank you to Multi Flor for the fabulous arrangements and Perfect Settings for their expertise . Also, a special thanks to Rachael Foster Photography for sharing her amazing work with us! Happy Holidays!!
