Why I've Been So Busy Lately
posted by Kris Ardent @ 6:38 PM
Last night, Brenda and I catered our first raw foods event for Bikram Yoga Wellington. We've been working our asses off for weeks, figuring out the menu, testing recipes, printing our own business cards (hand cut, for that "rustic" look we're going for) and working on the website so it would be ready for all the new customers we would get from this party.
Check out the two pages we've managed to cobble together, but no making fun of my sad little html skills:
As part of our business, we've teamed up with Excalibur Dehydrators to be their New Zealand distributor. When I got home last night, there was an email from an appliance company requesting our price list and delivery schedule, so they can place an order! Wha?! Seems Excalibur already has us listed on their distributors list! Crazy. This morning, I had a food order on my cell phone. Seems there may be something to this raw food.
We made 8 dishes for the party, but each one had multiple recipes comprising the whole dish. Holler if you want any recipes.
Lasagna Roll - Zucchini "Noodle" Marinated in Lemon Juice and Olive Oil, Rolled with Sweet Sun-dried Tomato-Spinach Marinara Sauce and Pinenut Ricotta Cheese
Nachos - Flax Corn Chip Topped with Spicy Un-bean Dip, Guacamole and Cashew Sour Cream
Marinated Mushrooms Stuffed with Mushroom Walnut Pate & Pistachio Basil Pesto
"Salmon" Pate Made From Walnuts, Red Pepper and Celery Served on Cucumber Rounds, Topped with Dill
Thai Wraps filled with Mango, Carrots, Red Cabbage, Bean Sprouts, Basil, Cilantro, Mint and Almond-Ginger Dressing
Fruit Skewers are pretty sprinkled with fresh mint.
And finally, Coconut Cashew Divines - Dates, Cashews, Coconut, Vanilla and Agave Syrup
Now, the big sleep.
