Every year we get to cater Thanksgiving dinner for families throughout Rhode Island. This family dinner was nestled in the country side of North Smithfield, RI in a house that looked like it came out of a vintage hallmark holiday card. Sometime we have to pinch ourselves by say OMG, we get to work here for the day.
The staff arrives three hours before the guests arrive to prep the dinner and cook the turkey on site so the house has the smells of the holiday season. Potatoes are boiling away on the stove to make mashed potatoes, Cornbread Stuffing is prepared and finished in the oven along side Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Shallots. OMG, did we mention the bacon. Yes, you can’t forget bacon anytime of holiday season. Its a staple like pumpkin and apple pie which was for dessert. Our onsite catering Chef Christine was having fun working on Thanksgiving by taking a selfie with the beautiful turkey. She carved it and served in a beautiful platter to serve to the guest.
Thanksgiving is the time to be grateful for family, friends and everything we have around us. Check out some of the pictures of the days events.
