Catering a VIP cocktail party at a large lumber yard that is changing image and launching upscale products. They are courting the high end realtor market to show them spruced up ideas, colors, products for improving home sales to high end clientele and looking to capture the upscale home buyer.
Okay so that's the client and guest audience. Short two hour cocktail party. Menu selected is
Tuna Tartare served in Crispy Wonton Cones presented on a triple tiered lucite tray
Smoked Salmon BonBons with Creme Fraiche & "Caviar"
Rare Roast Beef Roulades with Horseradish Cream & Arugula Chiffonade
Chicken Skewers (maybe panko crusted) with Coconut Curry "Fondue"
Mini Almond Cookies that are color matched (with sugar topping) to the 4 colors the decorator wanted
presented on quadruple tiered lucite "staircase" and surrounded by the color paint swatches (that customers select in the store)
What I need some creative brainstorming is the Coconut Curry Chicken display
I have a 1/2 sized chafer to hot hold the chicken skewers. Thinking of surrounding with glass block and (inside) uplighting with mini lights. Next to the chafer will be a SS fondue vessel hot holding the coconut curry sauce. Attached (cannot be disassembled) to the fondue vessel is a lazy susan with
6 SS round containers. What would you recommend that would tie into their theme (yes there's always flowers, chopped parsley....no I'm not filling the vessels with nuts & bolts.
All ideas, creative suggestions welcome!
