Puff ‘n Stuff Catering recently had the opportunity to design a “sweet” dessert and champagne table for a “Merry Marry” holiday wedding inspiration shoot featuring a peppermint hot chocolate bar, rich red velvet cupcakes, and beautiful DIY flowers from Fifty Flowers. Photos from the shoot are up on the OneWed.com blog, and the post intro is included here. Check out some of the beautiful shots from John Unrue Photography of our assortment of red, green and delicious treats!

We recently assisted a well known hotel client to produce the “welcome” course for a 2,100 person gala dinner. After countless hours of detailed preparation we were able to answer the question: what happens when you combine…

  • 6,300 precision cut pasta sheets with the word “Welcome” written in 3 languages stamped in squid ink
  • 1/4 mile of vegetable mousse in 3 flavors (pea and mint, cauliflower and anise, sweet potato and cumin)
  • 25 gallons of roasted red pepper coulis
  • 10,000 grape tomatoes carefully scored, roasted, peeled and dehydrated to look like an open flower
  • 8,400 fava beans husked, peeled and split
  • 8,400 purple cauliflower florets
  • 2,100 elephant garlic chips
  • 2,100 basil crisps
  • 2,100 slivered euro cucumbers
  • 4,200 red endive leaves
  • 10 cases of hand-cut eggplant skin thread
  • 20 gallons of muscatel vinaigrette
  • 24 cases of frisee
  • and a tremendous 900 man hours?

Deconstructed Saffron Pasta Salad with Autumn Vegetables

The answer is a beautifully plated dish of Deconstructed Saffron Pasta Salad with Autumn Vegetables. As always, we tip our hats to the team of chefs who gracefully executed this event!

It’s happened again. It seems like we were just preparing for the 2009 Holiday Season, and “pow,” today is already February 1st, 2010 – amazing. People often say time can “stand still” or they need to “save time,” but time keeps moving. In the catering business, it is amazing how it passes so quickly.

From an operations perspective, we’re already beginning to focus on summer and holiday business. We’re busy inventorying linens, purchasing new color offerings, looking at new and stylish serviceware, and adding fresh menu items while also focusing on creatively reinventing some traditional ones.


In just over a month, I will be speaking at the
Catersource Conference in Las Vegas with Puff ‘n Stuff Catering’s Owner, Warren Dietel. We’ll be showcasing our process for executing the perfect event. Every year, we attend to see the upcoming catering trends first-hand so we can continually “wow” our clients, whether the event is big or small.

This year is off to a busy start and we are looking forward to the challenges that brings! I wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year and look forward to the opportunity to assist in creating your special event!

At Your Service,
Kevin Kulikowski, Director of Business Operations
