St. Pierre Festival of Fire

Earlier this month our John Michael Exquisite Wedding and Catering team had the pleasure of creating an incredible reception at Paradise Cove for a corporate client, St. Pierre Bakery.

They were in Orlando for the International Dairy Deli Bakery Association Convention and after the conference hosted the party for the attendees.

Preparing food for foodies is always fun and exciting.  The theme was St Pierre Festival of Fire, that boasted brilliant orange and branded backdrops; our team knocked it out of the park.

Our John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering team incorporated St. Pierre products into food items in several of our butler passed hors d’oeuvres, each of the four savory food stations and of course, the delicious dessert stations too!

Our team was dressed in embroidered orange St Pierre polo shirts and began the evening with delicious butler passed hors d’oeuvres that included:

Bacon Wrapped Dates with Almonds
Scallop and Mango Ceviche on Toasted St. Pierre Brioche Baguette Slices
