Catering in New York was incredible. I arrived Thursday morning, shopped Thursday afternoon in downtown Manhattan (wish is an accomplishment in itself), prepped Thursday night, cooked all day Friday, and carefully displayed each dish across a table for when the guest of honor arrived.
I felt so lucky to be part of a perfect evening and contribute my love of good, healthy, wholesome, real food.
The event was self-serve, arranged beautifully with vibrantly colored platters, white tables cloths, flower and herbal arrangements, and of course…the most gorgeous presentation of natural and healthy foods. The dinner menu follows.
1) Make it yourself salad bar:
-shaved sweet potato
-freshly sliced; cucumbers, red cabbage, and grape tomatoes

2) Kale, kohlrabi, and beet warm salad
