First Event at the Exploratorium
Last night we had our first event at The Exploratorium. We were very well received by the guests, some said we had the best food even though there were many other caterers. We served our Portabella Mushroom Veloute with Black Truffle Oil, Reinvented Spaghetti and Meatball and the Red Fruit Soup. It was the first time I tried the Reinvented Spaghetti and Meatball. The presentation is adorable, one meatball and a small twirl of spaghetti on top skewered by a tiny wooden fork so that one can get a single perfect bite. Our Portabella Mushroom Veloute is one of my favorites. Even though it is creamy, the flavor of the portabella mushroom is not diluted by it. Sometimes chefs put so much truffle oil in a dish it can be overpowering but when used sparingly it is absolutely delicious. I tried the Red Fruit Soup for first time as well. The soup had basil and french vanilla ice cream besides red fruit which were raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries. The combination of fruit and basil was a balanced contrast and the heat of the soup and the cold of the ice cream was an unexpected yet pleasant surprise. The Exploratorium is another museum I look forward to going to, with so much educational information and interactive exhibits, I will be going there often.
