Sample the salmon from The Salt Lick! Wow guests with smoked salmon lollipops filled with raspberry cream cheese and wasabi crème fraiche. Roll out a plated version with salmon sushi rolls stuffed with vegetables, baby red ribbon sorrel and a cumin Sriracha sauce.
Pick your pork with Royal Fig Catering! Enrich your palette with slow roasted pork loin wrapped in pork belly, accompanied with a side of roasted beets. Give guests a bite sized version with pork belly from the porchetta served on slider buns with beet slaw.
Cue the quail with Verde’s Catering! Savor every bite of bacon wrapped quail breast on top of a grilled tomatillo with tequila lime butter. Stuff the bacon-wrapped quail with Mexican chorizo dirty rice and plate it with fire roasted chipotle aioli corn and fresh grilled beef steak tomatoes topped with cotija cheese for a spectacular dinner presentation.
