Tonight, my employer, Mel Day of Dogwood Tree Florals took me to the National Association of Catering Executives annual event - the Top of the Table Competition - with funds raised to benefit the Food Shuttle. I am too tired to post much, but I'll show you some of the foods I ate.
Creme puffs, cannoli, eclairs, and you name it - if it was chocolate - they had it!
Cheese tarts (to die for) with baby salad greens and a great herbed bread.
Salmon on a bamboo skewer - and they also had chicken satay - yummy!
A partially scavenged tray of bruschetta with bacon. There were also many passed hors d'oeuvres, such as pimento cheese tarts with apple wedges, miniature turkey pot pies (excellent), and Shrimp and grits (which I cannot live without). It was a feast for the eyes, for the belly and for the soul. Tomorrow, I'll begin to show you some of the tables that were entered into the competition. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
