The City Catering Company, local, brilliant, gastronomic force...recently debuted their culinary craft at a high end wedding show called: "Urban Unveiled." City Catering was one of five featured caterers (i.e. chosen for excellence.) Along with an exquisitely choreographed menu offering...their table featured a romantic bevy of glassyaby (think, true love, dream, cream, happiness, taffy etc..) Davey, my favorite, shared their table top design:
Davey also shared the menu...which would make anyone want to get married just to have City Catering:
- port seared duck breast
- wild mushroom risotto cake
- cherry sauce
- fried shallots
- potato croquettes
- citrus aioli
- vegetarian french onion soup
- gruyere fritter
- French macaroons
- chocolate cake with kahlua butter-cream
Lovely...Thanks Davey and City Catering...great share.
A glance back to early September reminds me of a great blog tale. Two moms (see above photo) entered our Madrona Store beaming with anticipation. We had a lovely exchange and charming details of their personal connection spilled forward. Their kids are married...if you can follow this...Julie's daughter, Teresa is married to the other Teresa's son, Patrick. Their kids reside in Ireland as Patrick pursues an MBA there. The mom's have each other. They take field trips together, like their visit to glassybaby, a nice antidote to kids far away. They purchased a fertile glassybaby for a friend who desperately wants a baby. I believe that it was Teresa who described that her husband was having hurdles at work some time ago. In a stroke of brilliance, she stealthily placed a whiskey glassybaby on his desk with a taller companion...bottle of his favorite whiskey...so stylish...and her report: "It worked." Ahh the many powers of glassybaby. Another great store passage.
Joy to glassybaby blog readers. More Soon, Nicola
