Appetizer Possibilities

 When it comes to planning an event, especially a wedding, we've seen many people want to make it fun and unique. They want their guests to have an enjoyable and memorable time at the party. Then why are people still choosing to serve deli sandwich trays?! Let's step away from the neighborhood deli and talk about treating your guests right with mouthwatering morsels.

Expand your Horizons; the options are endless

Chef Lou has an unparallelled passion for food. She loves to create new menu items that fit perfectly with your tastebuds and style of the event. Your guests will be blown away at the quality and variety of Savory's food choices. Give them a (food) experience to remember and set your event apart.

One of our newest appetizers is the Southwestern Sweet Potato Cake. Chef Lou was tinkering around in her kitchen one day and created this appetizer. This is a truly unique bite: it has a warm sweet potato cake, fresh avocado, black bean and corn salsa, lime creme fraiche and garnished with a spinach chiffonade.

No Store Bought Appetizers Here: The Story of Our Fruit Tarts

At Savory, we uphold the highest standard for the quality of our food. Chef Lou will not take shortcuts. She believes in giving the BEST to our customers.

Chef Lou puts it this way, "At first I used to buy the pastry shells from a supplier. They were dry and didn't have any flavor! I soon realized I could make a much better pastry shell. My recipe has some orange zest so it gives the dough just a hint of citrus. I also use a flower cookie cutter because the scalloped edges look so cute. It's the little details that put this recipe from good to GREAT."

It's the small things that make the Fruit Tart a winner: white chocolate lines the inside of the shell so it doesn't get soggy, real vanilla French Pastry cream is used, a variety of fresh sliced fruit individually arranged on each tart, and a shiny apricot glaze for the finishing touch.

 Fruit Tarts are a great in-between for those who want a slightly sweet dessert option.
