Top Trends: Small Bites Tasting Menu by Gaston Catering

I love the fall months of September, October and November. In our Sacramento, Amador, Sierra Foothills region, the wine crush is beginning, the evenings are cooler and there is a crispness in the air! These are all great reasons to plan a festive gathering and enjoy the weather, the harvest and some of the flavors of the season. Whether you are planning a corporate catering event or a special wedding after party catered event, contact Gaston Catering in Folsom today!

At Gaston Catering & Event Company, one of our favorite event catering party themes is a Small Bites Tasting Menu Paired with a Wine, Beer and/or a Hard Cider Tasting. In our Small Bites Tasting Menu we offer many Shots, Shooters, Sliders, Bites and Lollipops, all beautifully displayed in many different & interesting glasses, cups, spoons, on picks and sticks. If is fun to display the items on glass tiers or on granite or slate slabs with lots of different heights, elevation and interesting props. Some of our favorite dishes are Shrimp Shooters with Spicy Bloody Mary dipping Sauce. Brie & Pastry Lollipops with Cherry Chutney, Mini Crab Cakes with Spicy Lime Sauce presented in Mini Lettuce Cups. Sweet Potato Fritters and Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates with Fresh Basil and Prosciutto are also great flavors to highlight the Fall harvest. The Wine sampling would pare will with a Local Artisan Cheese Display and the Beer Sampling format wouldn’t be complete with Silver Dollar Size Sirloin Sliders and Cuban Style Pork Sliders with Spicy Slaw.

Add Dessert to your small bites catering menu

Don’t forget to add a Dessert Sampling as well. We have offer Cheesecake Lollipops, Mini Crème Brule, Crème Puff and Fresh Fruit Skewers Drizzled with Boozy Hot Fudge Sauce.

If you do a wine paring, you will want to offer about 5 different wines to taste. It is good to have a good white wine such as a hearty chardonnay, a lighter red wine such as a pinot, a medium bodied red wine, a merlot of cabernet. The desserts can be pared with either a Zinfandel, A port or a Muscat.

If you offer a selection of beers to sample, it is fun to offer some of our locally produced micro brews along with a selection of locally made hard ciders.
