In celebration of the 139th Kentucky Derby, we’d like to chronicle a dinner we’ve had the pleasure of catering for the past 10 years at the beautiful Whitehall Mansion in Louisville, Kentucky. The exuisite Southern-style Greek Revival fashioned home and whimsical gardens made a perfect back drop for our beautiful and delicious menu.
Passed Hors d’oeuvres included proscuitto wrapped fig with gorgonzola, bite sized beef Wellingtons, wild mushroom Baklava and crab cake sliders with fried-green tomato and smoked paprika remoulade.
For an entree, guests were served a beautiful arrangement of medallion of beef tenderloin, filet of Alaskan halibut with champagne caviar sauce and garnished with watercress, chive mashed potatoes and a spring vegetable bundle.
Finally, for dessert, everyone enjoyed their own individual Derby hat or Jockey hat fondant covered cheesecake, provided by Sugar Buzz Custom Cakes & Confections, based out of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
