A Delicious Welcome | Catering to a Gala Affair in Central Florida
October 25, 2010 by Puff 'n Stuff Catering | comments

We recently assisted a well known hotel client to produce the “welcome” course for a 2,100 person gala dinner. After countless hours of detailed preparation we were able to answer the question: what happens when you combine…

  • 6,300 precision cut pasta sheets with the word “Welcome” written in 3 languages stamped in squid ink
  • 1/4 mile of vegetable mousse in 3 flavors (pea and mint, cauliflower and anise, sweet potato and cumin)
  • 25 gallons of roasted red pepper coulis
  • 10,000 grape tomatoes carefully scored, roasted, peeled and dehydrated to look like an open flower
  • 8,400 fava beans husked, peeled and split
  • 8,400 purple cauliflower florets
  • 2,100 elephant garlic chips
  • 2,100 basil crisps
  • 2,100 slivered euro cucumbers
  • 4,200 red endive leaves
  • 10 cases of hand-cut eggplant skin thread
  • 20 gallons of muscatel vinaigrette
  • 24 cases of frisee
  • and a tremendous 900 man hours?

The answer is a beautifully plated dish of Deconstructed Saffron Pasta Salad with Autumn Vegetables. As always, we tip our hats to the team of chefs who gracefully executed this event!
