We do not skimp when it comes to food. A great meal is the centerpiece of any holiday gathering.
We have selected one of our favorite catering teams, to create an unforgettable, gourmet buffet dinner that you will want to write home about.
Feast on your choice of Spinach Stuffed Chicken or Smoked Pork Loin with Apple Chutney for your entree.
(We have had them both and they are amazing)
Add au gratin potatoes, green beans with slivered almonds, a salad and fresh rolls and now you've got the makings of a fantastic food experience.
And of course, we'll top it off with a tempting selection of desserts. Purchase a cup of gourmet cofee and you're all set.
Afternoon Matinee's are equally tasty with a selection of gourmet boxed lunches.
