Pink Party Theme Appetizers. It’s Close Enough.


A friend just had a party catered by a couple guys attending the Culinary Program at The Art Institute of California, Orange County.  While sitting at a bar one night with my friend talking about a networking party she was going to be hosting, our conversation was overheard.  We were discussing food for the party and what to do.  And Randall, a fellow sitting next to us happened to be attending the culinary school — He sounded knowledgeable about food and came up with some sophisticated suggestions.  We were initially impressed.  It was a bit tricky, since the party theme was PINK and my friend wanted all the food to be pink-ish in color. 

To make a long story short, she ended up hiring him and another student from the Institute to make the food.  We ultimately decided on the following MENU:

* Asian Marinated Lamb Chops
* Sweet Bacon Wrapped Chicken with Brown Sugar & Chili Powder
* Polenta Cakes with Sun Dried Tomato Mousse 
* Tomato Cups with Mozzarella, Basil and Balsamic Gastrique  
* White Chocolate Covered Strawberries with Pink Stripes

Well, the party was today.  Randall and Ernest did a good job.  They were professional and willing to do anything necessary to prepare the food to our linking.  We appreciate that.

Another Chef, Johnny, associated with the Event Planners featured at the party, did a terrific job BBQing the marinated Lamb Chops provided by the caterers.  He even served them.

The drinks were also pink… Champagne, Guava Martinis and Pink Lemonade. 


Overall the party and the food was a success.  Thanks to all mentioned.

    We lost track of the fabulous Culinary Students, but if they come back here to read this again, perhaps they’ll provide their contact information.

    Everything looks fantastic! I usually prepare bacon wrapped albacore, but now I think I’ll have to try it with chicken.
