Cowboy & The Rose Catering Grand Jct CO Wedding
The Cowboy and The Rose Catering finished up the Grand Junction Colorado
Wedding Show on Sunday evening January 28, 2007. The event is one of our
biggest booking shows of the year, in that it fills in the few remaining
weekend slots we have available for the 2007 calendar. And also helps
with the 2008 slots that are starting to book since last December.
No big story here year but I wanted to show a few plates that we put
together prior to the show. These are just little kitchen shots, but
they are what we do for a show like this.
The tastings lined out like this:
Chef Mike and I cut live sushi for the event
Zane carved Prime rib and brisket.
Ray served up hot wings and mini Chile relleno
The ladies served up meatballs three ways, Mediterranean sauce, Chile
sauce and bourbon cocktail sauce.
We put together some of our normal real food test plates. And after two
years of research we brought to the public the Churrasco four ways
complete with chimichurri!
A few pictures to start and I will get to other blogs as I sort through
the 300 pictures my son took.
This is the chicken and my fabricated lamb skewer:
The chimichurri sauce so popular in Argentina
Plated up a real ribeye steak plate with saffron twice baked and chef
Also plated up a Chile Rellano plate with Mexican Rice and beans
Put together a puff shrimp platter with a take off of Jon's blueberry
shrimp, pulling together a blueberry horseradish sauce with vanilla
Family style pork tenderloin with apple red quinoa slaw and asparagus.
Featured a whole grilled pork tenderloin sliced covered by a rose wine
cranberry sauce served with red quinoa and grilled asparagus and roasted
Last is the most work we have ever done, this is a picture of the
preparation for the sushi as well as the first of the tuna pieces.
This was just to give you an idea of the plates we did at the show, I
will get into the presentation pictures over the next few weeks to give
you a better feel for the entire booth, which featured a unique event
this year, Mary Lou insisted that there be something for the future
husbands this year, so for the first time we advertised and set an
entire area up for the bachelor party. Poker chips, beer, pizza, and a
lady's legs coming out of a giant "chef Al" cake!
'Til we talk again, pop the top on a brew and have a real nice steak, as
many times as I make steak I still love to look at it, smell it and eat
it! What a damn perfect dish!
