    Everything looks so wonderful. I’m particularly interested in the mushrooms. Very interesting combo that I’ve never tried (mushrooms and guac). I’m also curious as to how long the truffles actually lasted. I would have taken off with the tray to the bathroom or something. ‘Oh, shoot…I don’t know WHAT happened to all those truffles! Guess everyone ate them already… What? There’s chocolate all over my mouth??’ 🙂 I think ‘finger foods’ are the way to go with catering. I’ve enjoyed my catering jobs/projects in the past, and smaller portions of a variety of food has always yielded the happiest mouths. I think people get really excited when they see such a variety of yumminess waiting to be eaten.

    These photos tipped me over the edge and I just ordered your book!

    Looks lovely! You’d be GREAT at catering — hm — a traveling caterer? 😉

    Oh yah, I can just imagine the stress of that entire night! Just thinking of it stresses me out. I know what it’s like to cook for 10 people for holiday dinners and well, lets just say, thank GOD for wine! But 25? I think I’d run the other way (or wish I could anyway). The fact that you pulled it off in such short notice, and extraordinarily so, speaks volumes about your capabilities! Good for YOU Amber. 🙂 I do have your cookbook and this has definitely inspired me to make everything you offered at your party (the marinated mushrooms will be one of the first. Holy!!!).

    And by the way, made your Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (using the chick pea base) a few days ago (I was the one who high-fived you on hummus about 5-6 days ago) and figured I’d be the only one eating it since my girlfriend has sworn up and down for years that hummus just wasn’t her thing (she’s only really had TJ’s or Costco’s). Now she’s good about “trying” something if I ask her to…I usually say, “we’ll, perhaps that particular version or recipe wasn’t to your liking but THIS, you’ve got to try. Trust me.” And she usually does. 9 times out of 10 she’ll be surprised to find she actually likes something she would normally turn her nose up at.

    Well, because of your hummus, she is now a convert! lol. Yup. I almost fell over. She couldn’t believe how good it was. So the following day, after I had her first try it, she had to be gone for then entire day (and into the evening) helping at a big event (a three day event) her dermatologist friend was having. Sent her off with her healthy snacks and green smoothie as I do (even though the event was catered, we know it’s best to come prepared, as I’m sure you understand)…and sometime around noon I get a text, “your hummus rocks”! lolol. Again, I was shocked to hear such an enthusiastic appreciation come from her regarding a food she, for years, thought to be pretty much disgusting. Wow, I say. Wow.

    So I just had to share that with you and say thank you for ALL that you do, for ALL your efforts to bring such wonderfulness to so many. Cheers to success all the way around! 🙂

    Nice job!

    Looks like my kind of party! I must admit though, I would probably end up hoovering around the buffet, periodically nibbling more delicious bites… At least you’d know where to find me. 😉

    This all looks so freaking delicious Amber! Would love to be at one of your parties.. or would be fun to do an event together 😀

    It really does look too good to be real. I’m writing this shortly before dinner – so it looks especially delicious. I feel like reaching right thru the screen for some. Love to have some!

    Wow everything looks amazing!! I can’t wait to receive your cookbook for Christmas. The chocolate truffles will be the first recipe I try!
