‘Tis the season… to give, to get, to celebrate, and to indulge in life’s fleeting moments of gathering with those who we hold most dear. It is a time when comfort and joy need to be spread and heralded as an important component of our human existence.
At Brian Beal Moore Catering, we craft settings and menus that are strictly customized for a vast and varied clientele. Each event is unique unto itself, and the experience is greatly recalled by both guest and host alike.
With the arrival of winter, we move from the abundant autumnal color cacophony to an austere and simplified winter white wonderland vision.
Darkness blankets us early now, and the drop in temperature begs for warmth. With a pure white table setting we have visually pared down the elements, but wanting to avoid a chilly aesthetic, we’ve created warmth with the use of meandering white lights which nimbly dance about, catching our eye and imagination.
Crystal clear stemware, votives, and a glass vase with slender white branches remind us of the icy outdoors, while the flickering candles and lights bring to mind the coziness of a snifter of brandy by the hearth. Textured gold flatware warmly reflects the lights, and in doing so adds another layer of warmth and connectivity.
The menu is modern, but certainly comfortable. Before being seated, guests are served canapés that pique one’s curiosity and appetite. Fresh Pears are wrapped in Prosciutto di Parma, which secure a tangy bit of English Stilton and some Winter Greens. Miniature Moringo Pancakes are the perfect vehicle of a bright combination of Sweet Mango and crunchy Purple Radicchio.
Elegantly poured table-side, our classic Russian Borscht is robust in color and flavor, and with a pillow of Horseradish Sour Cream and a dram of domestic Caviar elevate it to a new level. (and just wait until you try our Rustic Rye Dinner Rolls, warm from the oven with some lovely softened butter to slather with - incredible!)
Rosemary Roasted Lamb Chops will fill the room with an herbaceous bouquet which transcends trendy interpretations.
Ah…. but that desert! Perfectly delightful and totally appropriate. A little old school, but with a contemporary flair. Individually plated, Gingerbread Baked Alaska is adorable! Surrounded by a shimmering pool of Dark Chocolate Truffle Sauce fortified with Frangelico, the offering cannot be refused!
We shall be bringing more fresh ideas and menus over the next several weeks, illustrating that Brian Beal Moore Catering is a superlative choice for all of your holiday entertaining. From an elegant cocktail party, to a holiday banquet, we make our clients shine brightly. What may we do for you?
