Sharon’s Zucchini Bread Muffins

May 23, 2018 § Leave a comment

 

A Favorite Recipe from Toast’s! Kitchen

Sleek and so fresh they practically squeak, zucchini are flowing from farmers market baskets and local fields this time of year. Wonderful grilled, sautéed or roasted and finished with a bit of fresh basil or lemon is a delicious way to enjoy this seasonal vegetable. But muffins work, too, preferably warm from the oven and slathered with a bit of butter.

These moist, tender muffins come from the kitchen of Sharon Egri, Toast! Brand Ambassador and a veteran employee of Charleston Hospitality Group.

“This recipe was handed down from family members and it is an awesome recipe that everyone should make.  I have a special loaf pan that I bought from Target and I make mini breads from the batter,” says Sharon. This recipe calls for muffin tins to make muffins, which takes less baking time and thus yields an even more tender bread.  The trick to keeping quick breads tender is to avoid over-mixing the butter, which leads to tough muffins. Blend the dry ingredient just enough to combine once you’ve whisked together the wet ingredients.

(Yields 16 – 20 muffins)

6 large eggs

3 1/2 cups granulated sugar

2 cups vegetable oil

4 cups all-purpose baking flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

4 teaspoons baking soda

4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons salt

4 teaspoons vanilla extract

4 cups grated, raw zucchini

Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, thoroughly whisk eggs, sugar and oil together. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla extract. Mix together gently until just combined. Fold in the zucchini, distributing evenly throughout the batter. Pour into well-greased muffin pans and bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let rest for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan gently.

Charleston Hospitality Group Catering Chef Kimberly Brock Brown?

Kimberly Brock Brown’s life has been especially full and exciting these past few months. The mother of two (including son Brock Brown pictured with her here), was recently engaged to be married for “the second and final time” and just started her post as Catering Chef at Charleston Hospitality Group in April.  Her duties will evolve as she grows into the role, but for now she’s focusing on coordinating and adding to the catering offerings at each CHG restaurant.  Her first focus is Eli’s Table, where she is creating a more upscale and elegant dessert menu and teaching the kitchen staff there how to prepare them.

The American Culinary Foundation graduate has a long and proud track record working in luxury hotel property kitchens such as Grove Park Inn, Hyatt Regencies and several Omni properties, including Charleston Place Omni (now Belmond Charleston Place), which is ultimately is what brought her to Charleston in 1994.

A native of Chicago, IL, Brown is adept in all manners of both cuisine and pastry, but she prefers working with pastry. “You can present a very beautiful plate of prime rib, but when you’re served an exquisite dessert, it truly makes the entire meal and experience very special and memorable. It’s the wow factor,” she says. Chef Brown describes herself as a “seasonal person” and is looking forward to using the fruits and berries of the season as much as possible as she creates her dessert menu masterpieces.

Farm to Fork Dinner Raises Funds to Support Ashley Ridge High School’s Agriculture and Culinary Programs

May 8, 2018 § Leave a comment

Culinary and Agricultural Students Grow and Raise Their Own Food to Learn Career Skills

Not every child has an opportunity or desire to go to college or culinary school. The staff at Summerville’s Ashley Ridge High School has acknowledged this in a way that goes well beyond intent and straight to a “classroom” farm and culinary training table.

The students’ education is part of Fox Ridge Farm, an educational farm on the school’s campus. The farm oversees and maintains livestock, vegetable and greenhouse production, forestry, wildlife management, and turf grass management. Fox Ridge Farm is comprised of ten acres and is the first GAP (Good Agricultural Practices ) certified farm operated by a school. School staff work with the students who are given hands-on instruction while participating in daily farm operations and responsibilities. Back in the kitchen Rachel Blank oversees the culinary program with her students.

The school held its second annual Farm to Fork Dinner on May 3,  featuring fresh produce and  hog they raised. The pig was was cooked and smoked by Sweatman’s BBQ, but all of the remaining food collection, cooking and service was performed by enthusiastic students of the culinary program.

Two members of Charleston Hospitality Group’s marketing team, Timmi-Jo Pashuta and Holly Herrick, were graciously invited to attend. The family-style dinner kicked off with a simple and exquisitely fresh salad of greens picked late that very same day from the school gardens by the students. Lightly and expertly tossed in a fresh herb vinaigrette, it was followed by platters of pulled pork, rife with pure pig flavor, delicately enhanced with smoke and pungent mustard  and vinegar-based sauces. Layered potato gratin, four cheese macaroni and cheese and fruit and fresh fruit parfaits finished the fabulous feast.

All proceeds from the Farm to Fork Dinner go back to the Agriculture and Culinary Programs at Ashley Ridge High School.  Ashley Ridge High School is located at 9800 Delemar Highway, Summerville, SC 29485.

Catering to Every Event Need

Charleston Hospitality Catering’s Got You Covered

Life has a way of presenting challenges that call for professional catering help, even for the most talented and organized cooks.  Pot luck dinners and backyard barbecues just won’t cut it  for most engagement parties, gallery soirees, baby showers, large, formal holiday events, corporate lunches and dinners, university functions, or yacht receptions.  And let’s face it, sometimes the home cook and entertainer needs and wants a break and to be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the fun and the food without having to worry about cooking and cleaning up the mess after everyone’s gone home.

Charleston’s no stranger to professional catering and event planning choices, as one of the country’s top wedding destination city’s and a town that’s big on parties, from oyster roasts to bar mitzvahs. What makes Charleston Hospitality Catering a little bit different is that its myriad menu and venue choices fall under the umbrella of Charleston Hospitality Group’s eleven restaurant and entertainment venues.

“All of our kitchens can provide food, depending on what type of event, menu and price range my clients are looking for. In addition, we have a full booklet of catering menus including hors d’oeuvres, salads, buffet entrée items like duck & waffles and shrimp & grits, buffet side opetions like au gratin potatoes and ratatouille, and dessert including red velvet cake, baklava, and tiramisu. We also do boxed lunches which are perfect for office events and include some elegant wraps and sandwiches and sides, as well as hot plates,” explains Charleston Hospitality Director of Sales, Nina Koutsulis.

The Chicago native has been with Charleston Hospitality Group for two year and holds a degree in hospitality management from College of Charleston. She runs the catering group with the assistance of Ryan Jennings, Catering Coordinator, who holds political science major from UNC Charlotte. He worked as a server at Toast and in sales during a short-lived stint with a trucking company before recently joining the catering team.  Both especially enjoy being out in the field almost daily interacting with customers and the special challenges and advantages of catering.

In addition to managing weekly corporate gigs with Boeing, Mercedes Benz and Wayne Brothers Commercial Concrete, they service multiple breakfast and lunch catering requests from businesses including car dealerships, medical offices, and pharmaceuticals with meals often selected from Queology, Tabbuli or Toast! menus. Meanwhile, more formal events including rehearsal dinners, bridal and baby shower lunches or corporate soirees, are more likely to select from Eli’s Table, Toast!, Tabbuli, or Fill Restaurant & Piano Bar (CHG’s newest acquisition) menus. Bachelorette and bachelor parties gravitate towards HonkyTonk Saloon’s celebratory, more relaxed Western mood and music. For these events, Jennings and Koutsulis will put together packages with food, t-shirts and rounds of shots. “We can truly tailor the event to whatever anyone needs or wants. We really have something for everyone,” says Koutsulis.

Charleston Hospitality Catering’s team has seen a little bit of everything. “I’ve done private events from as little as 8 persons, and oyster roasts serving many thousands. The largest individual home event we’ve ever done was for 300 persons for a memorial service. For the memorial, I understood the event was supposed to start at noon, but it was actually 11 a.m. Still, we were able to pull it off and get everyone served well and on time,” says Koutsulis.

Another time, she organized an event for 150 persons at Eli’s Table. It took place in the restaurant’s courtyard and she rented out the parking space behind the restaurant to accommodate the group. FILL Restaurant & Piano bar offers full space buy-outs for 92 persons offering assorted menu packages.

Charleston Hospitality Catering can meet most catering client’s needs with just 24-hour notice and can usually turn around private events within a week’s notice, depending upon server availability, according to Koutsulis. .
