March 18th starts a week dedicated to the chocolaty dishes that manage to make everything taste wonderful. The third week in March celebrates National Chocolate Week, so be sure that your event includes a few dishes that will draw the attention of your audience.
Desserts are perhaps the number one source of chocolate goodies. Cake, ice cream, and cookies are popular pastimes, and can always be a crowd pleaser. But, food trends have begun to demand a taste that includes nutritional value. So, why not consider chocolate dipped fruits, such as strawberries. Think of the chocolate as a dip, and the fruit is the chip. These displays can really add an elegant, tasty, and chocolaty feature to your event.
But, dessert isn’t the only part of the meal that chocolate goes good with. The main course has been found to feature this sweetener as a tasty addition to fish and chicken dishes such as chicken with simplified mole and salmon with white chocolate. Because chocolate comes in a variety of flavors, it can meet the demands of just about any dish. Chili Con Carne y Chocolate is a wonderful Tex-Mex dish that takes advantage of a bitter-sweet chocolate. These main courses can be an excellent way to add some chocolaty goodness to an upcoming event.
There’s even a dish finding its origins in Spain and many Asian countries such as the Philippines- Chomparado. This tasty dish has a few variations, depending on the source, but it is primarily composed of sticky rice that can either be dipped into, or mixed in with a warm dark chocolate. This dish makes a wonderful snack or dessert, but you’ll be guaranteed that everyone will want some more.
Adding chocolate to your event is one thing, but finding the right help to get your menu to the dinner table is another. This is where caters, such as Gomez Catering, can make a world of difference. Not only can they prepare a quality meal for your event, but they can definitely add a chocolate topping to the party.
Be sure that your next event takes advantage of March’s chocolaty week. With some extra help from the professionals, you can be assured that any meal on your table has that unforgettable flavor.
