So this is the second year in a row we have been asked to be a part of the Full House Lottery VIP Sneak Preview. It’s a two day event where previous ticket buyers are invited out to see the new show homes before anyone else, and enjoy some tasty appetizers and beverages while they do it!
This year the theme was Hollywood Movie Premiere. They asked us to put together a menu with that theme in mind, each house having a mocktail, two appetizers and a dessert. This was another exciting opportunity to be creative!
We came up with the following custom menu for each house:
House One – Hollywood Boulevard Bubbly, White Truffle Popcorn, Mini Gourmet Dogs with Caramelized Onions & Horseradish Cream, with the dessert being Whimsical Gourmet Cake Pops.
House Two – Beverly Hills Baby Bellini, Chili Lime Jumbo Prawns, Savory Onion Confit Tartlets with Gruyere Crumble & Balsamic Reduction, with the dessert being Mini Chocolate Dipped Creampuffs.
House Three – Sunset Strip Sparkling Sangria, Antipasto Skewers with cured salami, basil, olives, tomatoes and cheese in a basil infused olive oil, Mini Herb Garlic Toasts with Shaved Roast Beef & Berry Compote, with dessert being our Raspberry mousse in a chocolate cup.
We had two servers in each house, circulating the room with platters with the various appetizers. The crowds were big and hungry, and everyone seemed to love the fun themed finger foods.
