A Treats Affair

How Sweet It Is

May 13, 2016

We love a yummy wedding cake, but better yet, we love a beautifully designed yummy wedding cake. Who says you can’t have both?! With so many wonderful cake designers and bakers, you are bound to partner with an extremely talented pastry chef to dream up the perfect stylish design for your sweet treat. We are loving this watercolor design by Buttercream Bakeshop from one of our styled shoots last fall. Not to mention, the gorgeous gold foil accents!

Inside the Catering Minds!

May 9, 2016

We sat down with Andrew Gerstel of Windows Catering Company to learn more about what they are seeing in the catering kitchen! Have a delicious Monday !

 What food trends are you seeing in upcoming weddings?

Strolling Buffets!

Providing an interactive environment for guests to socialize in is always a great way to enliven an event, and what better way to deliver a culinary experience to your guests than having a moving feast? Build-your-own ceviche carts, rolling dim sum (or sushi) bars, and roving oyster shuckers are just a few ideas that we’re excited to pursue in 2016. And while I’m at it…who would want to belly up to a build-your-own ice cream sundae cart?

Nostalgic Nourishment

What food memories do you have from your childhood? Savory or sweet? Was it your Mom’s favorite casserole, or your favorite Aunt’s Crock Pot creation?  Dad’s spicy chili or his famous barbecue ribs? If you’re like me, Grandma’s banana cream pie is what comes to mind. Look for foods that evoke memories of years gone by to be incorporated into catering menus in 2016. It’s not comfort food, but rather food that brings back experiences in your life you want to recreate.

Oysters Need No Introduction

With cleaner waterways, better farming practices that mean little to no environmental impact, and great value for the cost, oysters have already become a popular addition to our menus – and they don’t intend to give up their popularity anytime soon. Preparation can be simple, and can vary in presentation by using them as a passed hors d’oeuvre or as a buffet item.  One of our favorite recipes uses a petite kusshi oyster from British Columbia with an absinthe vinaigrette…delicious doesn’t do it justice.

What are the Benefits of cocktail style weddings?

Windows wants your wedding to be about YOU and your guests. The debate between a buffet and seated service-style is primarily about the vibe you want to create in the room. Buffet or stations – style service tends to lend itself more to a casual, interactive atmosphere. A served meal is more formal and does not create as much interaction between guests. When choosing between the two options you should also consider the variety of foods you’d like to serve…and of course your budget. Buffets, or stations, provide more flexibility in the types of cuisine you can offer.

Regardless of your choice of service, the menu you create with your caterer is a wonderful way to showcase who you are as a couple. For example, if you’re from the Jersey Shore, and you want Boardwalk Fries at your wedding, it is our job to recreate your desires and not push you into picking something standard. Many people chose off-premise catering for the freedom and creativity it provides. So if you like the variety that comes with buffets, do a buffet! If you desire a more classic duel entree with filet and lobster for each person that’s absolutely fine as well.

Late Night Snacks?

February 16, 2016

The answer is yes! We understand when budget is a factor, the first thing to go are the late night snacks you were so excited about. However, we are a huge fan! We promise you around 10:30 after a few cocktails and hours of dancing, your guests are craving a little sweet or savory bite. It is the perfect addition to top off an already perfect evening. We are loving these new all natural, real fruit popsicles, Squeaky Pops – becoming available this spring online, and in your local Whole Foods, Giant, Safeway or Harris Teeter. Based in DC, they are the perfect “local” addition!
