Budget – it is very important to determine how much your budget is for the particular event or function you will be hosting.  You have to discuss this budget with your caterer before you proceed into hiring their services.  Of course, along with budget, the caterer needs to know how much people this budget of your will be served to.  Your budget will only be as good as the number of people it serves.  Even if your budget seems big, if the number of guests that needs to be served is also big, then simply put, your overall budget per guest goes down.

Food – prior to picking the catering service, you need to determine what type of food you want to serve your guests.  Some catering services excel in particular types of dishes.  It is crucial that the dishes you will have served compliment the tastes of your guests.  Make it a point to also have other options as you may have guests that are purely vegan in diet.

Theme – some catering services provide theme based services with which they have the table, chairs, and linen decorated with the theme of your preference.  This is very desirable when there is a particular color theme you want for the event.

Shiitake Mushrooms

Shiitake Mushrooms

Recently, a customer queried our use of shiitake mushrooms in our Duck Breast and Creamed Cabbage dish, why not use regular mushrooms?
It’s a good question – shiitakes have four to ten times the flavour of common white button mushrooms. In addition to their robust/pungent, woodsy flavour and meaty texture, shiitakes provide high levels of protein (18%), potassium, niacin and B vitamins, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.
They also have natural antiviral and immunity-boosting properties and are sued nutritionally to fight viruses, lower cholesterol and regulate blood pressure. Lentinan, an immunostimulant derived from shiitakes, has been used to treat cancer, AIDS, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibrocystic breast disease, and other conditions with impressive results.
So the next time you tuck into some tasty shiitake mushrooms, think of all the benefits – or, you can simply enjoy the rich flavour.
