Sam & Bob's Wedding Day

This past weekend we had the privilege of catering 2 of the most wonderful kids magical day! 

Our team did a phenomenal job and made my job smooth like Butta. 

The wedding was held at the beautiful Southwood Estate in Germantown NY.  A gorgeous river estate with views to die for!

Sam looked spectacular in her gown that was also worn by her mother and grandmother.  Bob was so adorable after the ceremony, I overheard him say " Oh my god honey, you looked so beautiful I almost died " Brought a tear to my eye!Sweet and genuine!

Joe and I wish Sam & Bob many happy years of wedded bliss, now Bring on the babies so we can cater the baby shower, and help welcome a new generation of Burnett's into the world!❤

It was a beautiful day for a wedding at Montgomery Place! Kim & Konstantin said their vows over looking the Hudson River in  wonderful ceremony.  Dinner and dancing ensued all night. Toasts were had and swords flew for this magical day! 


Beer, Bourbon& Bacon Fest

We were so excited to be a part of this festival this year and can not wait until next years!!! We were tasked with making at least one item on the menu with bacon. So we made our Cheesy mac with bourbon glazed bacon which flew out the door. We also made some bourbon meatball sliders with bacon. We had our great friend join us for the day and he was making chocolate covered bacon sticks. Man were they good! It was a blast! Thanks to my team for the long hours and hard work!! A couple of you were over nighters with Joe and I and I know you were feeling it! Thank you to Jon Newcomer for lending his hands and countless other things that day! Sure happy you were there!

Rhinebeck Aerodrome Fundraiser

Fundraising at the aerodrome is always a fun time! Getting to see the old planes and read the rich history is some of my favorites of this day! Seeing the progress each fundraiser provides this gem of the Hudson Valley is very uplifting for us to be a part of. Can't wait for the next one.
