Brides and bands and…food trucks, oh my!
We kicked off this April with a plated wedding at Cannery Ballroom for newlyweds Maia and Brian. The guests dined on beef tenderloin wrapped in Benton’s bacon and stuffed with Stilton bleu cheese, white cheddar and rosemary potatoes au gratin, and a medley of mixed seasonal vegetables. Wedding Season continued throughout the month, with weddings at two of Nashville’s most significant (and beautiful) landmarks, The Parthenon and War Memorial Auditorium.
Business as usual continued here in Music City, USA: our backstage adventures ranged from seeing Weezer’s back to back sold out shows at the Ryman to watching Tom Jones swoon the ladies at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The Robert Cray Band and living legend B.B. King also played at the Schermerhorn, and our good friends at tsp. pie and comfort debuted their phenomenal tea pies at the Ryman’s Rob Thomas concert. We also had the opportunity to live a bit of that high fashion lifestyle at the Symphony Fashion Show, featuring designer Christian Siriano and a performance by The Band Perry.
April also presented us with the chance to honor some people truly worth honoring. Lipscomb University held a reception to recognize their Academic Honors Students at the historic Longview Mansion, and Caterpillar treated their administrative staff to a luncheon of marinated and grilled salmon with mango-cilantro salsa, basmati rice with fresh herbs, and sauteed green beans with caramelized red onions.
And perhaps the most exciting part of April 2014? Well, you know. . . the food truck! Flavor Catering and Special Occasions has officially expanded it’s business to include our mobile food truck services. This month we made appearances at both local brewery Tennessee Brew Works, as well as the Montgomery Bell Academy Endada Arts Festival. We served up our signature Hot Chicken Tacos with homemade pickles and jalapeno slaw, Mexican Rice, white beans with chorizo, and hot water cornbread. We are honestly so excited for this fun addition to our company, and can’t wait to roll into an event near you! So stay tuned!
