‘Tis the Season

In At Work, Catering on December 15, 2011 at 5:16 pm

These past couple of days we can’t help feeling like the energizer bunny – we keep going and going and going…

Yesterday we taught an in-home class with three children before Richard ran off to cook for a family of four while I baked 5 dozen cookies for a client’s holiday party and then we finished the day off by catering a three course dinner for one of our favorite regular clients. Busy indeed, but fun, no doubt. We thrive on the excitement of pulling it all off and doing the best that we can and there’s something extra special about our jobs this time of year. We drive to clients’ homes through brightly decorated streets and to the tune of holiday music, we take pride in making people’s parties memorable the only way we know how to, through food.

With little time to relax today, we’ve already set our sites on the events of the next couple of days but wanted to share some pictures from the three course dinner that we catered last night. Even though yesterday ended up being a 13 hour day for us, the feedback we received made it all worth it.
