French Macaroons

By

People often wonder how new trends develop in creative fields like culinary arts.  Culinary artists look to many different places for inspiration, and one sure place to find it is the classics.   A prime example of a classic that has caught on in the United States is the french macaroon. Don't let their unassuming appearance fool you.  These jewel-like cookies are a perfect storm of complex textures, clean flavors, and brilliant colors.  The macaroon has gained favor with food enthusisasts due to the combination of a crisp, smooth - bordering on ceramic - finish on the outside and a chewy, sweet center.   Culinary Crafts is excited to offer this delicate treat in every color and flavor imaginable, adding a subtle delicacy to any event.

Cherry, Plum, Almond are among this variety and can make a big dramatic statement when included in springtime floral arangements. I love  the organic look of twisted branches of flowering Dogwood in bloom in vivid pinks and white. And keep in mind that many of these delightful species are locally grown and provide a great big punch without knocking out your floral budget. Till next time Best Regards Michael Sanders

Modern Wedding Style, hot tips for cool brides

Traditionally, the wedding rehearsal dinner is a gathering of the wedding party along with close family and friends after the wedding rehearsal. An occasion that often provides a special time for families and friends to meet and greet (sometimes for the first time) before the wedding.

 

The wedding rehearsal dinner is traditionally semi-formal, and often an opportunity for the bride and groom to present thank-you gifts to wedding party. But if you have family coming in from all over or if sitting down to a more formal meal is not appealing to you (or your budget), you may opt for a fun, casual alternative.

 

One of my favorite ways of planning a hip, casual wedding rehearsal dinner involves a grill, some good old down-home style BBQ and a relaxed atmosphere. If family and friends are coming from a distance to attend your wedding, a nice BBQ wedding rehearsal dinner is a great way to show them you appreciate their attendance without breaking the bank. They will be able to meet, mingle, and chat without the stress of formal wear and fussy etiquette rules. Kick it up a bit with bright colors and a stylish presentation to complement the bold flavors of a great American BBQ meal.

 

So forgo the filet, and make my burger medium rare!

 

Till next time….

Best Regards

Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides

It's all in the Mix! Signature MartinisI must admit, one of my least favorite things to do in this world is wait. As a guest, walking into a reception, there are those first few minutes of thought about how to negotiate the lay of the land, figure out where everything is a located, where do we stand? where do we sit? Oh boy, am I thirsty! One of my favorite things is the feeling of being welcomed and taken care of. Butlering a beverage to arriving guests at a reception provides a great big welcome. It can be a fabulous cocktail or non alcoholic "mocktail", either way cc0495loresit really makes your guests feel pampered. Think about your favorite flavors and colors and really take it up a notch by creating personalized names and themes. Follow through with availability of these beverages on your bars or beverage stations to add additional accessibility. Fun colors, dramatic glassware and creative garnishing touches will make your "Signature" speciality drinks a very memorable personal touch. Well that's all for this week. Check back next week for more wedding tips and ideas. Till then... Best Regards

We love that so many of our wedding clients are “coming to the table” with such refined palates!

 

Brides (and grooms) who fell in love over a fabulous meal are not willing to settle for ‘just OK.’ The fact is, you can’t throw an amazing party without serving amazing food and gourmet receptions are the Culinary Crafts’ wedding forte!

Special themes make for a highly personalized and memorable reception. It's fun to combine various ethnic foods to reflect the bride and groom’s respective backgrounds or pick a menu item from that special restaurant that you spent that romantic first date in. Make sure you consider and talk about both your likes and dislikes when planning your menu options and don't be afraid to mention favorite dishes and the recipes that you love. Inspiration for an unforgettable meal for everyone at your celebration most often begins with your own very personal vision.

 

  There are no second chances to get it right when it comes to your wedding and Culinary Crafts really understands that completely.  We work meticulously on all of all the most important little details, and lovingly prepare outstanding food so that our gourmet Brides and Grooms have the chance to fall in love all over again.  

 

Well that's all for this week. Check back next week for some fresh wedding buzz LIVE from Las Vegas, where Culinary Crafts will be catering a "little" wedding reception for about 1500 guests! Till then.....

 

Best regards-

Michael Sanders
