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.
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.
