Sample Menus

Appetizers are a nice ice breaker for any party or mixer. Thirty minutes of appetizers as guest arrive. One of our favorite appetizers is Smoked Salmon with a dill caper cream cheese spread on a toasted crostini. This can be a passed appetizer or at a station. Delicious, served with a local wine and a beautiful display of assorted cheeses and fruits. 

Today's menu items have evolved, vowing to use the finest ingredients and prepare each
dish with an infusion of passion and creativity. Guests rave about the food.  Chef Jan enjoys
working with fresh herbs, garlic, olive oils and a touch of her Italian & California Fresh influence.
