Trip to the Islands Theme Events

                                       I found this picture from a big event summer event I catered in the late '90s. It was a company picnic, although the name of the company and exact menu is as faded from my memory just like the picture... I do remember, however, making over a thousand teriyaki beef and chicken skewers for this event. My staff and I grilled them over hot coals on a very hot summer day, ugh! I did some killer hard events in those day's!
Classic '90s appetizer set up, with fruit and vegetables cascading from a six foot tipped boat with nautical props and tropical floral accents.
The picture below (also faded) was a luau at a large home for a birthday party. We served the food family style on big platters to guests, resting them on the fruit garnished tables. Everyone enjoyed tropical tastes including a whole roasted pig. I remember it was hot that day too. I guess with warm weather is just around the's hard for me not to think about tropical entertaining!

Hungry for a taste of the tropics? Join me Saturday 2/16/13 (information below) and learn to make Kalua Pork, Kalbi Ribs, Hawaiian Shrimp Rice salad and Banana Nut Bread. Bring the recipes home to make your own feast!

Trip to the Islands Cooking Class
Get Ready for a taste vacation from the norm with a tropical dinner getaway! The island flavors featured in this class have a rich sweetness and wide appeal. Chef Renee will demonstrate, in cooking show style, recipes perfect for a simple meal or backyard gathering with family and friends. The focus will be on Polynesian dishes that are simple to prepare and feature fresh, easy to find ingredients.

Bartenders are performing greater responsibilities for a bar. They should be experienced and well educated and have to know the manner very well.
