Tea Trolley Love | Food Theory Thursday


Recently, we here at Culinary Crafts attended the 2012 Catersource conference in Las Vegas and it was AMAZING!  And, as usual, there was SO much beauty and inspiration about, we were thrilled to be a part of it all!  As an added bonus, we were able to sample some of the fantastic restaurants that find a home in Las Vegas.  For example, Culinary Crafts's wedding planner extraodinairé, Holly Fowler, dined at the world famous Joël Robuchon at the MGM Grand.  Not only was the food amazing, they had a show stopping Tea Trolley. (Yes, I said Tea Trolley!)  This cart, named Le Thé, boasts all the normal accoutrements you would expect for your tea, with a twist.  Among the honey, sugar, and cream, are fresh, living, potted herbs from which you can create your own custom tea blend that is the freshest brewed this side of the Mississippi!  Thyme, peppermint, lemongrass, spearmint, and more, the combinations are virtually endless.  Once you select your herbs, they are hand cut, washed, and steeped.  How fabulous and refreshing does that sound?  Sign me up!  I really love the constant creativity and experimentation we find all over in the culinary world and how much we here at Culinary Crafts love to try new things and break out of the box.  There is always something new to try and something more to 'wow' our clients!  And, who knows?  Maybe you'll see a Tea Trolley of our own at a breakfast buffet or brunch coming soon!  :)  Happy Thursday everyone!
