Last Saturday I went to the Poet Society's fundraiser reading, (David Lehman!) and had been asked to donate food.....now the request came from my best/fav client. There were 2 other caterers preparing food, this event was for 75-100 people....over 100 showed, 5-7pm. The table included: Asparagus with white and black sesame seeds, red and green tortilla rollups, room temp crostini with pesto, feta and a sliver of dried tomato cooked on, sausage and meats on skewers......all were easy, low cost. I prepared morel duxelle in fillo tarts (warm) and choc truffles (bought, ran out of time and didn't make the mex. marshmallows). There are only a few things I donate time/product to, most involve culinary education. So, what do you provide when a client asks for donations? And what causes do you support with time/product? Just curious. Oh yeah, what I thought would be a staid evening was a laugh riot.....this guy's work was hilarious.
