Last night my mom hired me to cater which of course I don’t care it was a great experience. Everything was devoured and yes I know what you’re thinking, I crushed it myself but the guests did get to eat something too. When I started cooking I must’ve at least cooked and prepped for three hours. It was fun and by the end of the day my favorite part was about to come. All I do is eat eat eat no matter what, got cooking on my mind and I never get enough. Setting up and presenting it was fun too.
I’ll tell you the menu. I made a charcuterie platter. On it was, parmesan and thyme shortbread, herb grilled flatbreads with fig jam, procuitto wrapped breadsticks, assorted cheeses (the smoked gouda was the best), grapes and olives. I made the parmesean and thyme shortbreads and the herbed flatbread from scratch. The flatbread did NOT work out well. It was too dry and the fig jam did not help at all. It was terrible. The parmesan shortbreads were the first to go they were so good. I also made, bacon wrapped chicken bites (see my other post on how to make these) and BLT sliders. Some sliders had avocado and others did not.
I think everyone was happy with the food I made. I was happy to make it and earn some cash. I think my mom should hire me again. she has to, because I’m her son. Recipes linked below. For other catering needs make sure the get “The Kings of the Kitchen” in to help. That is the name of my catering business that I want to start. Coming soon…or when I’m old enough. Maybe summer of 2017.
