Hamby Happenings: Taxidermy Big Fun Party

Hamby was thrilled to be part of the hottest and most fashionable Pop Up Shop Party in all of Charleston on December 3rd at Shop Taxidermy‘s new store on 94 Spring Street. The event planners at Yoj Events set the stage for the event with their fabulous design that featured trendy pink decor! Everywhere you looked there were smiles, laughter, and of course people snacking on our delicious Hamby hors d’oeuvres. Take a sneak peak at the pictures below to get the inside scope of the party:



Our chic cuisine provided the perfect bite-sized snacks for attendees as they browsed designer handbags, shoes and bowties. The menu included our very popular Yucca Root Chips with Edamamus and famous Hamby Tea Sandwiches, as well as Shaved Beef Crostinis with Pickled Peaches and Crabcakes with our homemade 5-Pepper Muscadine Jam.

Real Hamby Weddings: Megan & AJ

Megan & AJ, a recent Hamby couple, said, “I do” on a beautiful September day at Magnolia Planation. With Smith photos + ink on hand to capture all the sweet moments, their day was complete perfection. The pair traveled from NYC to celebrate their love in Megan’s hometown of Charleston. Donning red lips and a feather hair fastener, Megan was one stylish bride! It was a true pleasure to be involved in their day.

Oh, and we can’t forget to mention the couple served chicken and waffles as a late night snack – the perfect dancing treat!



The couple let their love of wizardry influence their reception decor.


Notice anyone familiar? Hint: The lady on the far left thinks 98 degrees is the perfect temperature!

Hearty & Warm: Flavors of Fall

As the leaves begin to change and the temperature drops, our minds drift to hot apple cider, pumpkin flavored everything and hearty entrée options that warm the soul. It’s fall y’all, and we wanted to share a few tips to make your fall menu memorable.

For starters, we encourage clients to highlight ingredients from the harvest. Produce like corn, pumpkin and potatoes are fall staples, but at Hamby we like to combine these basic ingredients with unexpected flavors that excite the palate. Our warm Corn Bisque with Crisp Prosciutto is one example of a unique pairing, as well as our Rilette of Duck Confit atop Cabernet-poached apple with leek frizzles (shown below).

Alongside seasonable vegetables, these surprising hors d’oeuvres invite people to approach basic ingredients with a new fall flair!


Moving on to entrées, it’s all about the main attraction. You can’t go wrong with classics like a perfectly seasoned beef tenderloin or rosemary roasted chicken. But for couples that want to explore the less expected, Hamby offers our Lamb en Chemise with Goat Cheese, Pine Nuts, Baby Malabar Spinach and Rosemary Jus.

And, of course, you can’t forget the sides! We pair this dish with Sweet Glazed Carrots and Herb Roasted Mini Potatoes to complete the fall flavor profile (pictured below). Yum!


Another option is our Lowcountry Chicken Saltimbocca, pan-fried with Shaved Country Ham and served with Seasonal Fall Vegetables (pictured below).


To round out the menu, we never forget dessert! Our Homemade Fruit Pies are a fan favorite for dinner parties or holiday meals. While our Apple Tarte Tatin with Cinnamon Crème Angalise or Tispy Bread Pudding (shown below) are also perfect options for the grand finale of an autumn wedding or corporate event menu.

Tipsy Bread Pudding

As the evenings cool down and a breeze drifts through the Holy City, we look forward to being a part of your fall season. Whether it’s for a wedding, Thanksgiving dinner or holiday party, Hamby would be delighted to share the flavors of fall with you and yours.
