Ever since this nonsense started back in March, my clients have surprised me over and over again with their ingenuity and creativity.
This one last night in Concord. An โ€œI love Lucyโ€ themed birthday party. Tented and beautifully decorated. Wow!
We provided dinner boxes that were quickly consumed!

We specialize in barn, farm and outdoor weddings. Not all caterers are experienced with the obstacles that come up with an off-site venue. If you are looking for an unusual venue (i.e., outdoors, barn, farm, etc.) we can help you secure the venue of your dreams, and also make sure it goes off without a hitch. With the current pandemic, many couples have no choice but to post their important day in their backyard. We handle everything from generators and tents to lighting, outdoor restrooms (port-a-potties), fireworks, entertainment, photographers and mroe. Our specialty is COMPLICATED VENUES requiring years of experience doing outdoor weddings. Weโ€™ve been doing them since 1994! Our service area for wedding planning is wide open and includes past locations such as Osterville, Cape Cod; Georgetown, Maine; and Fairlee, Vermont. As caterers, we will travel anywhere and have done events as far as the Cape, Rhode Island, and western Massachusetts.

Finally! Our second cooking video is up and ready for viewing. This is a Pad Thai recipe from a cooking class I took last year in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Pad Thai for 4

Pad Thai sauce
(Use half the amount with half a package (8 oz) of noodles
2 teaspoons red chili flakes
4 tablespoons oyster sauce
2 tablespoons fish sauce
4 tablespoons tamarind paste
2 tablespoons palm sugar or raw sugar
8 ounces chicken stock or water

In a small bowl mix together the above ingredients. Put it close to your cooking area. Mix together the above ingredients. Put it close to your cooking area.

Pad Thai
4 tablespoons or more vegetable oil
3 ounces firm tofu โ€“ diced
1.5 tablespoons minced shallot
6 garlic cloves minced, small cloves
1 cup diced chicken thighs
3 eggs
16 oz dried Thai noodles (try to find ones thicker than a linguini). Read instructions on package for boiling time. Donโ€™t over cook!
2 ounces bean sprouts
Six scallions cut into 1โ€ pieces

Accoutrements
Roasted and crushed peanuts, red pepper flakes, raw sugar, scallions, wedge of lime

Cooking method
In a wok or sautรฉ pan, heat vegetable oil or pork belly oil. When the oil is hot and shimmering add the tofu and fry until crispy. Now add shallot and garlic. Stirfry over medium high heat until fragrant. Do not burn the garlic.

Immediately add the chicken and stir until the chicken is cooked. Push the cooked ingredients to the cold top side of the wok.

Crack the egg into the hot bottom center of the wok. Scramble lightly and when the egg has set, use your spatula to cut the egg into bite-size pieces. Push the cooked egg up to the top side of the wok joining it with the cooked chicken and tofu.

Pour half the pad Thai sauce into the hot bottom center of the walk. The sauce should begin boiling in a few seconds. Do not mix the sauce and the cooked ingredients. Keep them separated.

With the sauce boiling, add the rice noodles into the sauce. Stir until the noodles become translucent and cooked.
Finish up by tomorrow sing in the beans sprouts and chives. Turn off the heat and continue stirring for a few seconds.
Carefully, slide your pad Thai out of the wok onto the center of your serving plate and sprinkle with roasted crushed peanuts. On one side arrange a small amount of the garnishes- a few sprigs of scallions, a neat teaspoon of red pepper flakes and raw sugar. Some lime wedges.
