Diggin’ on Donuts

Guests have been delighted by our newest event dessert offering – donuts. Plated, or as an action station using our new donut machine, Hamby donuts can be served hot and fresh with a variety of toppings, including powdered sugar, customized icing colors to match an event, cinnamon sugar or cracked M&Ms. Our new dessert is being devoured like never before. Seconds, please!

Since debuting at Spoleto last spring, our new donut machine has been all the craze at local events. In fact, we’ve served more than 50,000 hot and fresh donuts in the past three months. As a chef-attended station at SEWE, Stray Dog Society and the Volvo Car Open, these mini donuts are the perfect nostalgic snack.

The tiny dessert is a great filler for conference room breaks or a festive treat during a wedding reception. While they are easy to eat, they are also fun to display and guaranteed to bring a smile to any guest.

So far, we’ve experimented with tons of icing flavors, including Buttermilk Vanilla, Chocolate, Raspberry and Espresso Icing. The donut toppings are the most fun part of the dessert – ranging from Benne Wafers to Toasted Pecans and Crispy Bacon. But, if classic flavors are what you desire, make sure to save room for Powdered or Cinnamon Sugar.

To include donuts in the line-up of your next event, contact an Event Producer for more information.

The Market at Hamby: Eat & Meet

Last night we held an exclusive event for a few local food IGers and bloggers. We hosted the party-goers at The Market at Hamby, our new retail space where people can come to purchase our traditional pre-made favorites for casual parties or meal at homes, as well as exciting new items coming out of our kitchen.

Guests were invited to mix and mingle, snap photos and enjoy a few special selections from our Chef – of course! The spread included Mini Beef Wellington, Mini Tomato Pies, Duck Confit Flatbread, Chicken & Waffles and the trending, Hot Chicken Drumette!


The talented, Yoj Events helped with decor and event coordination while Branch Design Studio brought in gorgeous florals to decorate the space. It was a great night meeting area tastemakers and introducing them to our new retail concept. Thank you so much, 843 Productions, Food Slayer, Spots to Savor, Chucktown Foodie, Lets Eat Y’all, Food Coma 843 and Charleston Foodie Babe  for stopping by to our Eat & Meet.

Below are a few photos from the fun of the evening.
