Trending: Ice Cream Sandwich

August 29, 2014

Ice Cream Sandwich

The Sweetest Trend

We’ll be honest: here at Continental Catering we’re not really into getting behind a trend unless we’ve started it. The ice cream sandwich, however, totally changed our minds on the subject. Hallelujah! How could it not? What could be better than delicious sandwiched between more delicious? Not much as far as we’re concerned.

THE COMBINATIONS:

What we’re particularly loving about the ice cream sandwich trend is the variety that is popping up all over the country. We thought that the basic ice cream sandwich was good but we had no idea what was to come! Now the options are limited only by our imagination and creativity. Once we get past the ingenious ice cream combinations (ice creamery, Salt & Straw, has flavors like Pear with Blue Cheese and Bone Marrow with Smoked Bourbon Cherries), we can get creative on what to actually sandwich the creamy goodness with. Oh yeah! Now we’re talking…

From freshly baked cookies to pies to waffles, the sandwich can be made with practically anything that our heart desires. There is even a macaroon ice cream sandwich! Be still our hearts. Oh, and we’ve even found s’more ice cream sandwiches. Talk about delicious overload!

WHERE IN SAN DIEGO:

If you’re anything like us, you’re salivating uncontrollably at this point. If you’re not, what’s wrong with you?! Run, don’t walk, to Baked Bear in Point Loma for a delicious ice cream confection. You can thank us later. Also, don’t forget to add an made-to-order ice cream sandwich station to your next event….

Clockwise from top to bottom: pie, s’more, square waffle, variety sampler, round waffle, and macaroon

Mood Board Monday: Navy-Yellow Wedding

August 25, 2014

Navy-Yellow Wedding

 

The Board:

There are color combinations that will remain classic and timeless through the years. Much like black and white, navy and yellow is a classic and chic pairing that although innately elegant and preppy, also has a playful side. It is safe to say that it is one of our favorite color pairings so it only seemed appropriate to dedicate a mood board to the navy-yellow wedding of our dreams.

The Process:

What anchored the board was the super adorable bride holding a yellow bouquet. She is a bride that doesn’t take herself too seriously but still enjoys the classic with a twist. The neutrals like dove grey, tan, and navy blue anchor the color scheme and allow the pops of yellow to make a statement without being overpowering. The result: a whimsical, yet refined navy-yellow wedding fit for a fun and fierce bride.

Mood Board Monday: Bright + Romantic Wedding

August 18, 2014

Mood_Board_1For the second installment of our mood board series, we imagined the wedding of the gorgeous bride at the top left corner of the board. With her luscious floral crown and ethereal veil, we knew her wedding had to be a romantic affair with touches of whimsy and a nod to vintage styling.

She is pure and innocent but doesn’t take herself too seriously and likes to have fun. You’ll notice bright and abundant flowers sprinkled throughout and handwritten elements on the cake and table number for the touch of whimsy the bride exudes. The palette is neutral with bright pops of orange and hot pink. It’s the perfect springtime fête! You can count is in at this wedding!

Taco Tuesday in San Diego

August 12, 2014

Taco Tuesday at PuestoFish tacos are to San Diego what blue is to the sky. These tasty treats have left the realm of the trendy and entered the world of cult-status. In fact, fish tacos have become so essential to SoCal culture that they deserve their own day to be celebrated, Taco Tuesday. Some argue it is the most delicious day of the week. We’re tempted to agree. So in the spirit of tortilla-wrapped fishy goodness, we’ve decided to share with you our favorite San Diego Taco Tuesday spots…oh, look, it’s Tuesday! Just sayin’.

Taco Tuesday at Brigantine

1. Puesto at the Headquarters // We’re loving the new location at the Headquarters at Seaport District! Sip on handcrafted margaritas and enjoy traditional to innovative taco combinations at their breezy outdoor patio. What could be better?!

789 West Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101 // 619.233.8880

2. Brigantine // This seafood superstar has remained a community favorite since 1969. Sometimes, you can’t beat the classics, especially if the classics are crispy and delicious fish tacos that never disappoint. Check out their rebrand….

9350 Fuerte Drive, La Mesa, CA 91941 // 619.465.1935

3. South Beach Bar + Grille // This is our event and design chef’s favorite spot in San Diego. He swears by the fish tacos and calls them “the best in town”. And what’s more, the hip restaurant is set in front of the water. Looking for ocean vistas and delicious tacos? They’ve got you covered.

5059 Newport Avenue #104, San Diego, CA 92107 // 619.226.4577

4. Mariscos German Food Truck // This purveyor of finger-licking-good fish tacos is 1) on wheels and 2) definitely the best value in San Diego. At $1.25 a taco (not a miniature) you’ll get the most bang for your buck (emphasis on the bang). Probably the closest your taste buds will get to authentic Baja Fish Tacos without the pesky lines at the border.

3030 Grape Street, San Diego, CA 92102

Taco Tuesday at Continental Catering

5. Ramon’s at Continental // Last but not least, we couldn’t forget to mention our definite winner for best tacos in town: our own kitchen! Chef Ramon makes the meanest tacos this side of the border. No, it’s not our bias speaking (well, maybe a little). Word of advice: make sure to add the Taro Root Tacos with Pulled Pork to you next menu.

8238 Parkway Drive, La Mesa, CA 91942 // 619.698.3500

Okay, now we’re dreaming….

Food Art Friday

August 8, 2014

Food_Art_3  So, it’s really no secret that at Continental Catering we’re into food, right? (It would be a total bummer if we weren’t and worked in catering.) We love food—fries to fois gras, corn dogs to caviar—we’re equal opportunity food lovers and we’re not ashamed to admit it. We’ll gladly stuff our faces with culinary concoctions like it’s nobody’s business. Why? Because food is not just sustenance. By appealing to the senses, food can tell us delightful stories and transport us to magical places. Oh yes, friends, food is not just delicious to eat, it’s also beautiful to look at! It’s art that you can eat (the best kind of art if you ask us). And so this brings us to our new “Food Art Friday” series where we’ll be highlighting amazing ambrosial art for your eyes to feast on.

We can’t think of a better way to kick off this series than with the agriculture artist/ produce photographer, Sybille. Are her color-coded food shots not incredible? It’s amazing how food in each color group seems to have a unique personality: vibrant, elegant, energetic….

What do you think?

“As an event planner and wedding coordinator for many years, when it came to my daughter's wedding I knew I had to go with one of the best caterers for my 300 guest Italian wedding. Not only did Continental allow us a couple different tastings to get the pasta course just like grandpa's, but every detail was perfection.” Angel H, Jamul, CA
