December 11, 2016 - Lauren Conrad Thanksgiving Shoot

This year, our thanksgiving festivities included a two- part styled shoot with Lauren Conrad for www.LaurenConrad.com.

Appetizers and sides included angel biscuits with country ham and kumquat pommery marmalade; roasted yams sprinkled with brown sugar and cotija; gruyere ciabatta stuffing with wild mushrooms and leeks and haricot verts tossed with a tomato romesco, charred shallots and parsley.

The turkey was finished with oaxcan mole rub and served with a tomatillo serrano gravy and gruyere ciabatta stuffing.

December 11, 2016 - Wreath Workshop

Design Love Fest and Moon Canyon recently held their annual wreath making workshop in Silver Lake– including a stationary display of some of our favorite fall appetizers and sweets.

While DIY’ing wreaths and sipping on spiked cider, attendees enjoyed pomegranate squash bruschetta, assorted cheeses and a beet grain salad with lemon truffle oil. Desserts included autumn trifle and fuyu persimmon tart, served with a delicious pomegranate whipped cream.

December 15, 2016 - American Girl Doll “Melody 1963” Premiere

We had a great time catering the premiere of “Melody 1963: Love Has to Win” — at the American Girl Doll store last month.

The menu included tray passed tomato soup shooters with white cheddar goldfish, turkey meatloaf cupcakes with mashed potato frosting, and individual caesar salads on baby gem lettuce.

The children’s station included mini tea sandwiches, veggie flowerpots and butterfly pasta salad with sweet peas, zucchini and parmesan — while adults were treated to a separate selection of tea sandwiches, autumn chopped salad and israeli couscous with wild mushrooms, fennel, french feta, dill and dried cranberries.

We capped off the night with a selection of kid friendly desserts — including chocolate malted milkshakes; mini strawberry shortcakes and birthday cake macarons.
