Ahh the joys of a commercial kitchen

I love working in a big kitchen. big ovens, sheet pans, mixers, and knives. All the tools you need to get the job done quickly.

Yesterday I made: spiced molasses cookies, cinnamon sugar cookies cut into little acorns and oak leaves dipped in chocolate, an apple and raisin strudel with caramel sauce, 2 salad dressings and some spiced nuts.

I am working with Tom Leavitt of White Oak Gourmet and we are catering St. Viator Day at St. Viator in Arlington Heights, IL. The dinner is for 55 people and the menu is going to be really tasty!

Cocktail Hour with passes Hors d'Oeuvres
Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette, Spicy Walnuts and Bleu Cheese
Choice of:
Roast Prime Rib of Beef with Fresh Horseradish Sauce
Pommes Dauphinoise and Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Salmon with Pommes Puree and Pommes Frites and Sauteed Spinach
Apple Cinnamon Ice Cream and Pumpkin Ice Cream with Spiced Molasses Cookies and Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

Enough to work for me!
