More Catering Escapades

One of my catering clients celebrated their daughters first birthday over the weekend. While the kids ate hot dogs and hamburgers, the grown ups feasted on my famous recipe for Lobster Macaroni and Cheese. Elbow macaroni is laden in a mixture of lobster, four cheeses, half & half, seasonings and butter drenched bread cubes.

To go with the entrĂ©e, I prepared an all-time family, friend and client favorite; Rainbow Salad. Aptly named for its array of color where I toss shredded red (aka purple) cabbage with avocado, peaches, (in summer – mango in winter) scallions, red pepper, Valbresso Feta cheese, toasted sunflower seeds(in summer – cashews in winter) … the colorful combination gets tossed with Apple Celery Seed Dressing. So popular is this salad, it made its way onto one of Baltimore’s most prestigious country club menus!
