Wildside Winery Valentines Day Luncheon

January 21st, 2016 Posted by Wedding Venues No Comment yet

One of the most lovely things about being caterers in Woodford County Kentucky is we get to visit so many beautiful places when we provide the food for weddings, birthdays and other celebrations. And one of our favorite places is Wildside Winery on Troy Pike here in Versailles.

We have had the privilege to cater many events here over the past couple of years and have got to know the owners Rachel and Neil well , so we were more than delighted when we were asked to come back for another year and cater their special Cupid’s Day luncheon on February 14. This year the luncheon will be coupled with a “Who Dunnit” play and guests will be able to take a stab in the dark or should we say a highly educated guess, as to who committed the dastardly deed!

We’ve come up with a mouth watering menu to tempt and tease you which includes Tuscan salad with among the cast, cranberries, candied walnuts and caramelized onions. There’ll be roasted winter veggies (asparagus, Brussel sprouts, carrots, Portobella mushrooms) and oven roasted chicken smothered with a creamy Dijon sauce and crispy country ham.

Then whilst you and your love are giving some serious thought as to who murdered Mrs. Peacock in the dining room with a candlestick (Oh my! I loved Clue as a child and could play for hours) we will be setting up the dessert station.

How do some red velvet cake shooters, mocha brownies and white chocolate mousse cups with a berry coulis tickle your fancy?

Of course, all this will be complemented with a choice of exclusive Wildside Winery wines chosen to compliment each course. A wine tasting to make your selection will take place around noon before luncheon at 1 PM. Star of the show is the newly launched Dry Rose Cabernet Sauvignon, a crisp, light rose and a perfect partner for the chicken.

And the beauty of a luncheon, if this romantic notion had not already occurred to you, is that it leaves the evening free to cozy up at home with your love, throw a log on the fire and sip a few more glasses of wine!!
For reservations call Wildside Winery (859-879-3982) or visit their website at Wildside Winery.

Tickets are $40 plus tax per person.
Don’t leave it too long to call as last year’s event sold out pretty quickly.

The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow

January 21st, 2016 Posted by Uncategorized No Comment yet

The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow….well actually it was shining bright all weekend at The Lexington Opera House as they launched into their 2016 Broadway Live with the iconic musical Annie.

Playing to packed houses for three nights, followed by rave reviews from the critics, this touring show wowed and delighted the young and not so young in equal measure….and we were there!

IMG_0879Sweet Lilu’s is the official caterer for all the Broadway Live productions and it was our honor to provide the pre-show “nibbles”to the patrons. On the menu were Daddy Warbuck’s Cranberry Brie Bites, Roosters Buffalo Chicken Cups, Punjab Pineapple Sausage Skewer and Miss Hannigan’s Hummus and Roast Veggie display. Then during the intermission of this stunning production we served some stunning productions of our own in the form of one-biIMG_0877te desserts including our own, much acclaimed Annie’s Sunshine Banana Pudding Shooters and Roosevelt’s Red Velvet Cupcakes!

Catering this type of food for between 200-300 people for two nights means our kitchen has been busy round the clock….a veritable hive of bustling activity. But we love it and look forward to our next performance there.

Excitement is brewing at Sweet Lilu’s. With a hectic but amazing Christmas and New Year under our belts 2016 is already gathering momentum here in the kitchen and promises to be our best year ever!

So to launch us into Twenty Sixteen orbit we are delighted to announce our new blog….something we hope will not only keep you up to date with all our Sweet Lilu’s news and events but may even put a smile on your face from time to time.

You’ll get to know a little more about the amazing staff here, learn a little of what goes on in a busy commercial kitchen (we are just like you and have our fair share of culinary disasters!) and be first to hear about new products and up coming events. So tune in regularly, tell all your friends about it and hold on tight for an enjoyable ride!
