We planned a holiday party for a San Francisco law firm this month.  They wanted a day time event and a long lunch seemed perfect for the beginning of the holiday season.

Co-workers arrived at Hands On Gourmet in the Dogpatch Neighborhood of San Francisco on a gorgeous Friday afternoon.  Greeted with gourmet cheeses and wine selections chosen by Rosecrest Special Events, these guests enjoyed mingling in the state of the art kitchen.  Soon, the chefs were engaging everyone, assigning teams and they got to work!

Lunch was a Moroccan theme – various groups made lamb kebabs with a Persian yoghurt sauce for appetizers, chicken tagine for the main course, and a chocolate torte from scratch with creme anglaise for dessert.  Somehow, the various teams also made chicken phyllo cones with saffron, ginger, cilantro, toasted almonds and cinnamon, and a Fattoush Salad, complete with fried pita chips – yum!  The food was excellent (thanks, in no small part, to the kind and watchful eyes of the resident chefs).

After creating the dishes, everyone was invited to sit down and enjoy!  A long, lingering lunch was enjoyed.  This would be a great party for a special birthday, engagement celebration, or corporate team building event.

Merry Christmas Everyone!
