Trumps' NEW Cheese Board Presentations

So, today at Trumps Catering, we're working on some new cheese boards.  One is a savory cheese board with artisan sausages, herb roasted almonds, mixed Greek olives and I'm thinking about adding a small gherkin pickle.  

The other board is a soft cheese board and would include Brie, Camembert cheese, a mild soft Blue Cheese and we're still working on the 4th cheese, probably a goat cheese of some kind.  The soft cheese board would be served with a fruit paste or maybe honey comb, dried fruit and also the roasted nuts.

Here are some photos of a recent savory board we did. 
The centerpiece is a waxed round of Manchego Cheese, which was mostly for looks but if someone had taken a knife to it, it would have been OK.  We also served a Blue Cheese, a soft Boursin, Brie with Pepper Jelly, Smoked Gouda, Herbed Havarti and Baby Swiss.  The sausage we served on this presentation was a garlic and baby fennel. 

Instead of crackers, we're serving the boards with flat breads and thin wafers

So far, they are a hit!

Starting Back Up

So, this morning I decided to give myself 5 minutes every morning and get my blog going again.  It's hard to decide which social media project you are going to try to keep up with.  It's getting to be like crazy city traffic and what route will get you where you want to go most efficiently.  

I'm so excited and pleased with our progress on Wedding Wire.  Wedding Wire is where we decided to showcase our reviews.  And wow, do they help our business with weddings not to mention that when it gets a little harried around here, I can go to Wedding Wire to read our review and get my ego back in line.

Catering is a tough business.  We gear up all week for the weekend events and have our many strategy sessions and methods of communicating, packing vans, cooking large quantities of food, accounting for tables, chairs, linens, and supplies.   Then we divide and conquer and by Sunday night, everyone is happily exhausted and we get up on Monday morning and do it again!

In between some of the madness, we get these beautiful reviews on Wedding Wire that we all cherish and basque in and appreciate everyone who takes the time to give us feedback.
