There is a ‘Tasty’ New Caterer in Town!

I recently had the pleasure of attending a food and wine tasting for the launch of Taste Catering and Confections at Shelburne Vineyard and Tasting Room.

Owner of Taste Catering, Brian Martell, has described that his focus is providing fabulous food for any budget and taste and that his menus for events are completely customized to suit each clients needs.

At the launch party, I was able to taste his talent for myself! He served a series of hors d’oeurves, small plates, and finally dessert. My personal favorites were the goat cheese crostini with a fig and onion chutney, butternut squash and fennel soup shots, and the roasted 5 spice pork belly with jasmine scented sweet potatos and pickled apple and asian pear slaw. To top off the night, we each took home a ‘goodie bag’ filled with confections that I am still enjoying as I speak…passion fruit french macarons, rocky road bars made with homemade marshmallow (pictured below), truffles…the options that Taste offers truly speaks to the diversity of Brian’s talent.

Taste can cater for small or large parties, weddings, or private dinners. Be sure to check out their website and contact them for a menu consultation.

WT&E ‘Face Lift’!

We are so excited about our new Waterbury wedding showroom. We decided about a year ago that it was time for a face lift and to create a space that was in a more convenient location. Although we still have our Waitsfield showroom available by appointment, the new and improved Waterbury showroom is just off the interstate on Main St. in Waterbury.

The light, bright and comfortable atmosphere is the perfect place to talk wedding design, put together your rental order and talk with Jenna and Anastasia about wedding etiquette and the many wonderful vendors we work with.

Not only is the new showroom a great place for couples to meet for their wedding, but we also offer our space for vendors who find it convenient to meet in Waterbury. From tastings to meetings with photographers, floral design meetings and more- just call in advance to schedule a time to meet with clients and the space is all yours.

Our new business hours are Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:30pm and Saturday from 10:30am-2pm.

For a more personal experience, please call today for an appointment 888.898.3839
