6. Chef in your Home
You're going to absolutely love the food at the gala. At the most recent International Caterers’ Association CATIE Awards, Catering by Design was presented with “Caterer of The Year” and—for the fourth year in a row, “Best hors d'oeuvres”!
This fine catering company will work closely with you to prepare a distinctive menu, and provide a delicious dinner for ten guests in your home. Enjoy your gathering of family and friends while the Chef prepares a delicious meal. A Catering by Design server will be on hand for this very special 3-hour event. This package includes 3 passed hors d’oeuvres and a 3 course served meal.
Included to pair with this delicious dinner are two bottles of The Winemakers’ Collection Cuvee No 1 (2005) and two bottles of The Winemakers’ Collection Cuvee No 2 (2006).
Each year, the Winemakers’ Collection chooses one of the world’s greatest winemakers to produce a wine according to his own special methods, expertise, and personality. Although he is in charge of every aspect of production - from the vine to the bottle - the grapes are always from Chateau d’Arsac in Medoc.
Michel Rolland, an influential Bordeaux-based Oenologist, was in charge of Cuvee No 1 which is an exceptional vintage boasting classic richness, deep, smoky black currant and sweet cherry fruit. Denis Dubourdieu, a French winemaker and Professor of Oenology at the University of Bordeaux, was in charge of Cuvee No 2 which is more structured than the 2005, richly fruity, deep, and medium to full-bodied.
