A fundraiser using Chef Charles through Kitchensurfing
I have been using the same caterer for over a decade. I love working with Thom. I literally shoot him and email and tell him the dates and we are set. He just sends me the menu sometime before the event, I sign off and that's it. I can literally show up 10 minutes before the event knowing that everything is perfect.
I know that is not the norm as many people don't know where to go or who to use...so that is where Kitchensurfing comes in to play. I am investor in KS so obviously I have to move out of my box and give it a whirl for some events here and there. This week we had a fund raiser for Fred's fraternity at MIT and Chef Charles provided the food. Absolutely delicious.
The menu was chorizo in puff pastry (take on the classic pigs in a blanket and one of my faves), vegetable samosa with chili tamarind and cucumber raita, braised pork Vietnamese summer rolls with sweet plum sauce, herb & pretzel crusted chicken & bacon lollipops with a cilantro lime aioli, mushrooms stuffed with herb goat cheese and truffle oil and last but not least spinach & feta cups.
