Presentation with a twist!

It’s officially Fall here in Northern Michigan and the markets are flowing over with my favorite mixings for dinner and displays!  I’m no food expert, I leave that to Cammie and Andy, but when working with caterers like Epicure Catering to create menus for client’s events I love talking about the “presentation.”

One of my must haves for a great dinner party is a well dressed table.  From the perfect layout, linen, chair, charger… you name it, they are all important and visually enhance the great meal each guest is about to be served.  A recent client created a harvest menu with accents of rosemary, root vegetables, spiced wine and braised meats but when we were selecting china patterns we could not decide on a soup bowl.  The soup was a Ginger Pumpkin Bisque and to add a “dash” of whimsy to the sophisticated menu we asked the Chef to serve the soup in miniature pumpkins.

Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box for table service- the perfect paper straw and milk bottle with your favorite strawberry shake or grandma’s vintage tea cup collection filled with mango basil sorbet!
