2011 is all about sexy..
2010 was the year of retro comfort foods in the world of food service. Caterers and restauranteurs across the nation recreated meatloaf, mac & cheese, burgers and fried chicken in their likeness. I dipped into the mac & cheese scene by adding Italian black truffles for eye rolling decadence. I also tossed a slider burger onto the menus for our guests to order. And order they did. More events than not had my mini burger of hand packed, ground Kobe beef served medium rare with Gruyere cheese and my onion jam nestled on a rich brioche roll just out of the oven that day.
As 2011 rolls in we are adding new items to our menus. We are predicting that 2011 is the year comfort foods get sexy. Watch your favorite chefs for sexy cheese sauces like smoked blue cheese, mixes of meats and exotic fruits exuding sex appeal as well as pan fried poultry paired with sexy foie gras or luscious lobster.
I’m moving on my sexy now. My menus are splattered with it and my 2011 clients are going to have a tryst with my food.
My wheel of Rogue Creamery Smoked Blue is on its way from Oregon as I write. An affair is about to begin.
