We celebrated completeing our 20th year in business with an Open House on March 27, 2010. With the help of Tricia Hamil of Viridian Design Studio our store was transformed into four main themes. Our Pretty in Pink Sweets Table featured a beautiful wedding cake by Sophie Lochte of Sophie's Choice Bakery along with pink and tan candies, housemade pink Marshmallows and French Nutella Macarons. This table also offered a Cactus Pear Lemonade in adorable small bottles with straws.
We had an Asian Station featuring Momofuku's Steamed Buns with Pulled Pork and Cucumber Pickle, a Pan Asian Salad served in Pink Takeout Boxes with Chopsticks, Coconut Chicken in China Spoons and Lemongrass Beef in Lettuce Leaves with Sticky Peanut Sauce.
At the Latin Station we served Beef and Sweet Potato Skewers w/ Chimichurri Sauce, Blac Bean and Corn Salad in Chile Lime Cones with Guacamole and Chile Pearls, and Shrimp Campechana in Martini Glasses.
My personal favorite of the evening was the Paris Cafe Station where we served a Wild Hibiuscus Champagne Cocktail, Frisse Salad with Lardons,Tiny Croutons and Quail Egg, Watermelon Cube with Feta Cheese and Balsamic Syrup, and Gaufrettes topped with Smoked Pork Tenderloin and Carrot Salad.
