TRUFFLES  TEAM COMPETES AT BC PROFESSIONAL WEDDING AWARDS

We had the opportunity to attend and compete at the annual BC Professional Wedding Awards last week as part of their Best Hors D’Oeuvre competition.

Our own Truffles Fine Foods culinary team worked hard to come up with a savoury creation to woo the taste buds of attending guests, with Chef Dave Bell crafting the perfect sensory entry for the evenings competition: Curry Chicken Arancini.

The event saw hundreds of wedding industry professionals converge on the Hard Rock Casino, Coquitlam’s main Theatre for a night of festivities and networking hosted by City Television personality and musician – Dawn Chubai.

It was a great evening that enabled our Truffles team to meet many of Vancouver’s top events, photography and wedding business owners – many of whom are integral in helping us produce exceptional catered memories for clients on a daily basis.

Check out a few photos below and be sure to check out our Facebook page for more! Visit the BC Professional Wedding Awards website for more information.

We look forward to upping the ante on next years competition and wish all award recipients our sincere congratulations!

FROM OUR KITCHEN TO YOURS

Our Chef Dave Bell is always busy in the kitchen cooking up something delicious for our customers and catering clients.   We’ve raided his recipe book and have a few tasty dishes for you to put to the test this winter…

Try out this easy-to-make recipe for a heart-warming soup guaranteed to please (and bring a taste of Truffles Fine Foods home this season!)

Curried Pumpkin Coconut Soup

Ingredients:

  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Sambal Olek
  • Coconut Milk
  • Turmeric
  • Canola Oil
  • Yellow Curry Powder
  • Ginger
  • Pumpkin Puree
  • Cinnamon
  • Honey
  • Salt and Pepper

Method:

  1. In large pot saute onions, garlic and ginger on low heat until very soft and lightly browned. (this is an important step as this is the flavour booster. You slowly cook these items until they are almost a paste and you will notice the scent go from really strong to a really pleasant sweet flavour)
  2. Add your curry powder, cinnamon and turmeric to the pot and add more canola oil if needed to make a paste: keep the heat low and cook out the spices for a minute or two
  3. Add the sambal and pumpkin puree. Stir until well combined
  4. Add the coconut milk(you may find it easier to stir using a whisk to get a smooth consistency)
  5. Then add enough water until you achieve the consistency you are looking for
  6. Simmer for about an hour, blitz until perfectly smooth, season with salt, pepper and honey
