Another award at Celebrity Hors D’oeuvres 2018
One more year – one more impressive win for Great Events Group at the 25th annual Calgary Celebrity Hors D’oeuvres hosted by Willow Park Wines and Spirits.
Representing both Great Events Catering and the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant, our executive chef Daryl Kerr and his team took home the Viewers’ Choice Award for the third year in a row.
For this edition, we decided to serve four outstanding hors d’oeuvres staged on an elaborate custom built pergola with vintage swing and curly willow accents.
And here is what we had on the menu:
- Lobster Truffle with red curry fennel sauce, compressed cucumber, crème fraiche and coral
- Pork Belly Cheesy Arepas, red bean puree, fried quail egg and micro greens
- Molecular Mojito Sphere with a pink grapefruit cone
- Dark and White Chocolate Consommé with crispy pearls
Although the event is typically a feeding frenzy, Chef Kerr’s favourite part of the night is the educational aspect of interacting with the guests. He enjoys sharing his passion for unique dishes and plating techniques.
Proceeds from the event went to Alberta Theatre Projects.
