The Puff ‘n Stuff Catering team was excited to cater the The Roosevelt 2.0 Showcase on February 1, 2011. Formerly the quarters for Theodore Roosevelt’s horses during times of war, The Roosevelt 2.0 has been transformed into a beautiful environmentally friendly venue with gorgeous displays of art and wildlife. The event was a showcase for approximately
75 event industry professionals to experience all that The Roosevelt 2.0 and Puff ‘n Stuff Catering have to offer.

To complement the eco-friendly theme of this event, we featured primarily vegetarian dishes, excluding a Rose Chicken Tower chef bar for non-vegetarian guests. Our delicious vegetarian creations included some of our favorite hors d’oeuvres:

Artisanal Cheese Presentation– with hand-picked seasonal cheese assortments from small independent farms complimented by dried fruits, nuts, and crackers; each plate features a well-rounded selection of cheeses that represent a variety of flavors, textures and milk types

Kabob Skewers– with grape tomato, fresh mozzarella ball, Kalamata olive, and artichoke heart with aioli dip

For the main course Puff ‘n Stuff Catering featured two Chef Bar stations filled with a plentiful amounts of organic gourmet food fit to please every guest at the party:

Smoked Rose Chicken Tower– including raspberry and chipotle chicken roulade served on a grilled corn, peach and poblano salad and accompanied with a jalapeno corn muffin topped with a peach and raspberry jam

Oriental Wok Station– cooked to order with bok choy, straw mushrooms, water chestnuts, bean sprouts, baby corn, bamboo shoots, shiitake mushrooms, savoy cabbage, stir-fried in a ginger-garlic sauce and served over house-made vegetable fried rice in pagoda pails with chopsticks

For the perfectly portioned dessert, guests enjoyed a selection of our “Little Luxuries” presented in a variety of glass stemware – fresh fruit compote layered with vanilla cream, silky chocolate mousse, carrot cake, dulce de leche cheesecake, tiramisu, key lime with crushed graham crackers, red velvet and cream cheese icing, peanut butter chocolate mousse, German chocolate cake, strawberry shortcake.
