Hors D’oeuvres

A Gluten-Free Gala

As a boutique firm that takes pride in creating customized menus for our clients, there’s nothing Marcey Brownstein Catering loves more than a challenge. After we were hired by three different celiac brides this past year, we focused on creating a variety of delicious gluten-free menu items based on each client’s specific tastes.

One of the brides – who is forced to abstain from eating french fries due to potential cross-contamination from fryers – was delighted to know that we could serve gluten-free truffled parmesan fries on her big day. At that wedding, the celiac-friendly stationary presentation featured lemon herb risotto arancini and grilled marinated flank steak with pesto and red wine jus, and was followed by the pièce de résistance: an entirely gluten-free dessert course. Passed around the lively dance floor were ginger crèmes brûlées, housemade gluten-free cones topped with mint chip ice cream, chocolate espresso pots de crème, and mini raspberry cheesecake bites on gluten-free graham crackers.

With an assortment of gluten-free menu successes under our belts (literally!) as we head into a new season, we look forward to sharing all the new challenges our amazing clients bring us this fall!
