Catering to their every whim

This weekend I had four catering jobs - yes, I am very tired. Here are a few of the creations that I made:

My favorite - a pistachio cheesecake with pomegranate seeds


Smoked salmon tart with Fleur Verte goat cheese and fresh dill


Gingerbread petit fours, lemon glaze and chocolate decoration (didn't come out as nicely as I had hoped)


Tuile of Asian Cabbage Salad - I purposefully left the tuile (little cup) sweet to pair with the sour of the slaw. This was very, very good.


And asparagus tips with homemade morel mayonnaise on toast


I made a few other things but the pics were boring. Finger food is so much better than fork food!

Oh come on, the petit four looks good! The transfer sheet was a very chic touch :) Did you mean something was off taste-wise?
Very interesting mold you've used for the cheesecake too-- Chefrubber I'm guessing :)

Nice! Sounds like a busy week for you but the results look great. I actually got a bit of a break this weekend after a couple really busy weeks so I've been embarrassingly lazy.

I was hoping for a lazy recovery day, but I'm teaching a Thai class in a few hours...back to the salt mine!

Manggy, I"m not sure if they're from Chef Rubber. They probably were. For Christmas I asked my family for pastry forms and molds...that's all I wanted. This year I'll add an infrared thermometer and the knife book from the eG member (can't remember his name right now).
