Catering dinner menu with seasonal ingredients for portland birthday party

Chef Tamara’s custom Birthday Menu featuring fresh, seasonal ingredients

We start by having Exec. Chef Tamara develop a fresh, seasonal menu which will thrill the guests and meet all of their special dietary needs.  For Richard’s 50th Birthday Party Dinner, we wanted to impress his guests with the rich and tender Cascade Natural Hanger Steak with Cocoa Crust and Cocoa Demi Glace!  Then we discuss event timing and how our catering staff will be scheduled to meet the guests needs at the birthday dinner.  We conduct a site visit to inspect the kitchen equipment to make sure it can handle the quantity of food we will cook or determine if we need to our own commercial equipment.  Logistics and layout are a critical factors at every catering event for the comfort of your guests and we review location of bars, social areas, dining table, and dance floors including CAD layout to make sure everything at the dinner party will work as planned.
