Spring is in Bloom

Spring is here! And what better way to celebrate than with great food, wine and some good friends. That's what we did at Emelle's.

Thursday, May 12 marked the evening of Emelle’s 12th Annual Spring Fling. It was a beautiful spring evening as guests entered through the café doors adorned with lanterns in shades of tangerine, raspberry and lime green. Inside, guests were welcomed to have a glass of wine and sampled some of Emelle’s newest and tastiest creations yet.
Some of our tasty treats included:
emelle’s signature edible garden w/ a trio of dips
fresh summer meadow tarts w/ edible flowers
oven dried tomato, goat cheese & basil puffs
smoked salmon & chive tartlettes
mini dungeness crab clubhouse w/ madagascar vanilla
sunshine spot prawn duets w/ sake cups of prawn bisque

alligator pot pie
meatballs in parmesan cups
lamb lollipops w/ blueberry gastrique
kangaroo skewers w/ thai curry dipping sauce
sliced venison in mini yorkies w/ blue cheese infused foam
oh henry barspistachio macarons
lemon citron tort topped w/ fresh blueberry & mango
white chocolate mousse in dark chocolate cups w/ curacou pearls
emelle's chocolate cupcakes

The talk of the evening was definitely the exotic meat selection of alligator, kangaroo and venison. We are happy to say that our fearless group of guests tried and loved every bite.

We would like to say a special thank you to David and Maurizio from Debut Event Design who did an amazing job transforming our café. Also a big thank you to Dion at Big Red Chair Events for providing linens and rentals. Emelle’s was thrilled to host such a cheerful and fun group of guests this year. We would like to thank everyone for making it such an exceptional event.
