Catering Tips on Serving White Inspired Foods by Marcey Brownstein Catering:

  1. White with a touch of color: Try to find interesting, tasty and seasonal items that are white. Then you can mix in some color for variety and flavor. For example, it's OK to serve white mozzarella with tomatoes or a basil leaf. Deviled eggs are also great for parties. We usually serve them with house-made spice salts, which add color. They are delicious and actually quite decadent. We also make them with truffle oil. Oysters are sexy and very adult (I think of them as white). Also, soft rice paper wrappers are the closest we get to achieving a bright white. We use them to make vegetable rice paper rolls, which are sublime.

  2. Soups: Creamy soups are decadent, delicious, festive and white! Truffled cauliflower, clam chowder, and potato leek are all great choices. Add a creamy foam on top for extra whiteness. They can be served in a white demitasse cup and saucer with a beautiful silver spoon or in a pretty, clear cordial glass.

  3. Use white as your vessel: Egg whites, jicama, thinly sliced cauliflower, spring roll wraps, bread, goat cheese truffles – top these with your favorite accoutrement.

  4. Drinks: White cocktails are also great – there are so many you can make. Garnish them with a white orchid or a shaved coconut rim.

  5. Desserts: White desserts abound – mini milkshakes, white cotton candy (made with plain sugar!), cake, ice cream. Serve small portions in festive vessels for maximum impact.
