About two months ago my team and I had the great pleasure of working with Ashley at Windows Catering. Ashley was the amazing event designer behind Adam & Sandy’s wedding at Sunset Crest Manor. From my initial interactions with Ashley I was impressed with her professionalism, attention to detail and her passion for her work; characteristics that make for a great working relationship between vendors. I recently met with Ashley for lunch (complete with butler and wine service I might add)! I was excited to learn the ins and outs of Windows from their extensive menus to their remarkable service. I really enjoyed my time at Windows checking out the kitchen, linens, equipment and especially meeting the team. Below are a few pictures from my visit to their showroom in Alexandria.
I was treated to three unique and delicious hors d oeuvres: Lobster, Mango & Avocado Skewers, Truffled Short Rib Shots & Duck Wraps, a first for me.
For the first course I was served crab cakes, my favorite! I have had many of crab cakes in my day and Window’s crab cake with bacon and sweet corn was unbelievable!
I enjoyed the herb crusted garlic tenderloin of beef for my main course. The beef was cooked to perfection, accompanied by green and white asparagus and a scrumptious pear shaped potato.
