We have been cooking up a storm this past couple of weeks!!! One of the highlights was this beautiful twist on the Caprese. We had a lactose intolerant guest so we sourced a Water Buffalo Milk Mozzarella which was lactose free. We paired the Fresh Mozzarella with a bit of Prosciutto, Fresh Basil and Apricots then garnished it off right with an Arugula Walnut Pesto and a Golden Balsamic Reduction. This dish has summer written all over it!!! 

We still have openings this August if you are looking for a Personal Chef for your special occassion, corporate retreat...or just because :)

Honey Glazed Brussels Sprouts...Oh MY!!!

Posted on November 22, 2015 at 10:55 PM Comments comments (0)

My Mother tells stories of me as a young child, turning heads in the produce department as I exclaimed, "Mommy, can we get Brussels Sprouts!!!" I'm sure some may have thought it was too good to be true...a child that begs for Brussels Sprouts. I have always had a genuinue passion for vegetables, especially these little bundles of joy. I have toyed with roasting them in bacon fat, lathering them in maple syrup, tossing them with crisp Pancetta bits. Not until recently however, had I tried a simple drizzle of wild, raw honey after roasting them with a smidge of olive oil, a dusting of Pink Himalayan and a Trifecta of freshly cracked peppercorns.

Clean. Simple. Perfection.

You can find these beauties paired with my Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apple Onion Jam & Smoked Gouda Polenta for a warm, winter meal that will be sure to fuel your next day on the hill!

Next time you're visiting Lake Tahoe, let Tahoe Mountain Tapas Personal Chef and Catering Services take care of dinner!

We are so delighted to have participated in this year's Soroptomist Food and Wine Event here in South Lake Tahoe. With over 1000 attendees, we were happy to see some local faces and meet some new ones as well. The event was a great place to get a little exposure and network with potential catering and personal chef clients. Tahoe Mountain Tapas served up a Pumpkin Pecan Sage Hash on a Plantain Chip, taking full advantage of the flavors of fall. We are already looking forward to participating in next years event!
