A Spicy Cajun Christmas Celebration By Chef Kathi Dameron 850-539-7750

My mind is always popping with different menus. Tonight while preparing dinner, the following ideas danced across my tastebuds for a Spicy Cajun Christmas Celebration.

Imagine playing homage to the festive holiday colors of red and green with an outrageous Cajun twist. I'm thinking big ruffly collard greens, artistically hollowed out cabbages filled with delicious dips and surrounded by boldly colored fresh vegetables. Of course. there will be several other designer touches- but I'm not going to spill all my secrets, here. Nope! You'll just have to wait till the party to discover the rest of the surprises!

A sample menu for catering a Cajun-themed party might include:

Oysters Rockefeller

Spicy Cajun Shrimp, Crabs and Crawfish

Assorted Crostini and Bruschetta

Muffuletta Wedges

Holiday Smoked Turkey Platter with Condiments and Specialty Breads

Golden Macaroni and Cheese Beignets

Jambalaya Served In Roasted Red and Green Pepper Shells

Festive Holiday Salad Trio ~ Your Choice of 3 of our Signature Salads

Banana Foster Bread Pudding

Praline Cheesecake

A Dazzling Display of Chocolate Candy Confections

This menu is available for private catered events from Chef Kathi Dameron of the Canopy Rose Culinary Arts Studio.

Kathi Wins Writing Award

Canopy Rose owner, Kathi Dameron has won the 2nd Place Award in the Newspaper Article Category at the 2008 Southern Christian Writer's Conference in Tuscaloosa, Alabama for her article, Simple Act of Sharing Food Can Truly Bring People Together. This article appeared in the Northeast Chronicle - Tallahassee Democrat during the spring of 2008 in the Entertaining with Kathi column.

Grand Prize Winner In Cooking Contest

The year was 1987 when Kathi Dameron, a passionate gourmet cook who spent her days teaching 32 second graders, and her weekends hosting fun parties for her circle of friends at her waterfront home on Florida's North Hutchinson Island, won two prizes in the first cooking contest she ever entered. One of these prizes was the coveted Grand Prize. At that moment Kathi knew that one day in the not too distant future her special dream to launch her very own catering company would be realized. Seven years later that day arrived with the birth of Canopy Rose in Florida's Capital City in 1994.
