Consider Charcuterie and Cheese Plate for Your Event

Consider Charcuterie and Cheese Plate for Your Event

Appetizers can set up the evening for success or failure. They can even be a conversation starter amongst those that are meeting for the first time. They also set the tone for the evening. If these appetizers are good, it will help make guests excited about the food that is about to come. However, if these appetizers are flops, then you may have a room full of disappointed guests and that can affect how they see the rest of the evening overall. This aspect of the menu should have as much attention as every other course. One of the simplest, crowd pleasing options is a nice charcuterie and cheese board. Charcuterie is a French word for cold and cooked meats. Often this is pared on the same board or platter with meats, cheese and other tasty tidbits. Better yet, this is an inexpensive choice with so many varieties that you can really use your imagination with it. It’s All About the Cheese There are so many cheese options that you can choose from. Start with something that is classic like an aged cheddar. Then move onto a spicy option like a pepper jack. Then you can mix in some other options as you wish, like Brie, Gouda, or goat cheese. It’s traditional to do a soft, semi-soft and also a hard cheese. Texture Texture is necessary when you are mixing soft cheeses and meats. You will want something to add texture to the platter to help make it more enjoyable. You could go with a crunchy type of bread or go with the more traditional cracker approach. We often do both!...
Visit Your Local Farmer’s Markets

Visit Your Local Farmer’s Markets

I do hope that everyone reading this takes advantage of the many farmer’s markets and fresh vegetable stands that bring so much healthy goodness to our communities. If you haven’t, please go this weekend to one of Lexington’s farmer’s markets. When my son was young, we would plan our Saturdays with a long walk to the Vine Street farmer’s market. (Katie would always give him an apple and share a cute story). That was 20 years ago, but the excitement and anticipation of the first tomato, the first peach, the first okra, the first fall crops is still there. It is a privilege to be able to get to know the farmers, know when vegetables and fruits are getting ready to come in season, share a recipe and a laugh. It will always brighten your day and put a healthy glow on your face. Selma’s Catering and Events shops at the local farmer’s market several times a week. We’re Kentucky Proud and use as many local ingredients and produce in our...
Cigar’s Under the Stars

Cigar’s Under the Stars

“I have made it a rule never to smoke more than one cigar at a time.” – Mark Twain Why are there so many good quotes about cigars? Attend any event that features cigars and you’ll soon see. As the night goes on and the smoke gets thicker, the conversations get better and better. Usually, there are at least a few words of ‘genius’ sprinkled throughout the overheard discussions. We love catering cigar-centered events because everyone is, unabashedly, in for a good time. Cigars signify celebration among friends. Think close buddies getting together to toast the groom…or saying goodbye at a moving away party…or one last guy’s night before the new baby arrives and changes everything. These are all perfectly good reasons to light up a stogie over grilled steaks, loaded baked potatoes, Caesar salads and a selection of bourbon. Many of my customers have a clear idea of how they want the night to unfold and that’s great. Others need a little more direction and I promise, we will walk through different scenarios together to plan your own unique event. For example, you could go casual, under the stars, with a more laid-back barbecue buffet, beers and a selection of cigars delivered for the crew. Maybe you’d like a fully staffed, sit-down dinner paired with wines and a selection of brandy and cigars to finish the evening. Whatever style you choose, we can intertwine your ideas into a night that will be reflected on at future get-togethers. If you would like us to pick up your selections, we are happy to. Need a bartender? Covered. You choose whether...
