Corporate Holiday party at the Kitchener City Hall Rotunda

On December 11, we catered an annual corporate holiday party held at the Kitchener City Hall Rotunda. There were 130 guests, and the menu featured four station buffets. Breaking up the buffet cuts down on lines, and allows guests to wander around to the stations they are interested in. The beautiful linens were supplied by Posh Rentals.

The Steakhouse Carving station featuring ribeye and carved turkey with all the trimming

Kelvin and Neil set up the pasta stations. Three kinds of pasta and sauces were sauteed to order with a variety of add-ins to customize your dish.

The seafood station. Glass blocks frame the display for jumbo shrimp with dipping sauces

Sushi and maki were provided by Sakura Island in Waterloo

Mussels steamed to order and fresh oysters complete this chef-attended buffet station.

Select's signature chop salad buffet station. Crisp lettuce is chopped in front of you with tomato, cucumber and bacon bits, then tossed with a creamy dressing.

50th Birthday Island Cake

This is some kind of birthday present, a private island. What a lucky lady Deb.
This is a picture of the cake with the printed pictures of the island. The cake was made to resemble the island as much as possible with the recipient of the gift (Deb) fly fishing in the water.

The cake is not to scale but it is a good representation of what this lucky lady will be seeing when she gets to her private island.

It is wonderful to be back even though it is just as cold as when I left. I attended "the largest gathering of catering professionals in the world". There are some exceptionally talented and sharing caterers out there and they brought it all to Las Vegas. I soaked up information like a sponge and over the next few weeks I will integrate ideas I have learned into your catering. I really look forward to sharing some of them with you.
