Chef Richard and Chef Katie

CSCA Holiday Party

In At Work, Catering on December 19, 2011 at 1:16 am

Today we catered a holiday party that is very near and dear to our hearts. A couple weeks ago our alma mater, The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, asked us to cater their holiday party. The party, which will actually be held tomorrow, will include all of our chef instructor’s and other faculty of the school and we couldn’t be more excited about going back to the kitchens, especially since we had never actually cooked in those kitchens together. Though it had been a while since Richard had been back (four years already!) and even though I graduated a couple of months ago, it felt like years since I’ve been there and we both were amazed at how little had changed.

The menu that we created was fun and totally our style of cooking – creative and fun but still approachable:

Homemade Root Vegetable Chips with a duo of dips;Beet Tzatziki with Meyer Lemon and Smoked Eggplant with Coriander 

Three Cheese and Prosciutto Phyllo Triangles

Thai Red Curry Squash Soup with Lemongrass Creme Fraiche

Black Rice Salad with Pomegranate, Kumquat, Fennel and Golden Raisins

Pork Loin stuffed with Harissa, Sumac, and Merguez

Blood Orange Almond Tart

We had a blast working in the kitchen where our culinary career started for us and we were honored to be asked to cook our food for the people who helped shape our culinary careers. And now…we’re taking a much needed vacation!
