Owner of Tasteful Affair Catering:totally custom food events. We specialize in small corporate events, off-site sitituations, and are willing to travel. We also do in-home parties, and showers. Regrettably, we do contract for weddings at this time. I'm married to a great guy named Randy who is my favorite recipe guinea-pig, and proud mom of Hatchie* our rescue kitty. *Ask how you can get free kitten with egg-roll.*LOL
My favorite things to cook
I am an appetizer junkie! Give me canapes, give me crudites displays, stuff my mouth with meatballs or cream cheese and I'm yours forever. Seriously, a good 'amuse bouche' sets great restaurants and home cooks apart from merely okay ones. It's the one part of a meal where you can boldly play with flavors, textures, and ingredients with-out anyone second guessing you.
My cooking triumphs
Pulling off a corporate event for 20 people without electricity at the venue. Only a standard sized gas grill and running water!
My cooking tragedies
Failing "Introduction to Basic Baking Principles" my first year of Culinary School. To this day if flour is the main ingredient in a recipe I skip right over it.
Cooking is an artful science,allowing for play and improvisation. However, Baking is a scientific art, no if's and or butter substitutions allowed.
