One of our more popular passed hors d’oeuvres for weddings and corporate events is our Sea Salt & Black Pepper Seared Tenderloin of Beef Crostini with Housemade Herbed Boursin & Pickled Peach. This unique blend of bold and sweet flavors pairs perfectly together and is as equally beautiful on display. Besides the Boursin Cheese, the Pickled Peach is a uniting element for the flavor of this dish. We asked Chef Patrick to share the recipe to the Pickled Peach so you too, could make it at home.

Happy First Day of Fall!
Here at Hamby Catering & Events we are counting down the minutes until Fall is officially here. We’re dreaming of cool nights for walks around the Battery, cozy sweaters, and colorful leaves underfoot. Pumpkins are starting to pop up all over town, and while it may be too early to break out your carving tools, we’re getting inspired to break out the pumpkins in our kitchen instead.
