ILEA thows a lovely luncheon together with ABC — at our Finley Creek Vineyards

Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering is proud of our newest event site, our own Finley Creek Vineyards in Zionsville.

The vibe at Finley Creek is relaxed yet chic, and the food, naturally, is always fabulous – as it is prepared by Jacquie’s gourmet team of professionals.

Last week, ILEA, the International Live Events Association, partnered with the Association of Bridal Consultants to host a terrific luncheon at Finley Creek that included renowned wedding consultant Sasha Souza of California.

Jacquie pulled out all the stops for the luncheon, attended by 150 folks. We kicked off the luncheon with some of our favorite hors d’ouevres, which were all met with approval:

  •          Peking Duck Crepes with Michigan Cherries, Chipotle Grilled Gulf Shrimp served on a Delta Grit Cake, and Vegan Cup Cake with Sweet Potato Frosting.

The salads were colorful and crisp:

  •          Multi Colored Beet Carpaccio with Herbed Mascapone, Black Truffle Honey and Candied Walnuts.

And then, the main course:

Braised Indiana-raised Pork Tenderloin from This Old Farm stuffed with Fig and Pancetta. Served with French Puy Lentils, Haricot Vert Bundles, Butternut Squash Chutney, Vincotto, and Micro Ruby Radish Greens, it looked as fresh and savory as it tasted!

There was also a yummy vegan entrée: 
Cilantro Potato Cake toped with King Trumpet, Mushrooms with Roasted Corn Salsa, and Roasted Red Pepper Puree, Garnished with Micro Ruby Radish Greens.

Which… leaves the dessert (which nobody left alone!)

Our Dutch Apple Baby with Salted Caramel Gelato was met with universal approval. A lovely finish to a great gathering.

Because this was a celebration, there was a self-serve Glug Station featuring Cinnamon Sticks, Cream, and Nutmeg.

There was also a signature gin drink for the occasion, created especially for the group by Hotel Tango, plus red and white wine, soda, Hibiscus iced tea, and lemonade.

Industry experts have give Finley Creek Vineyard their ‘air kiss’ of approval. Be sure to check us out for you next event!
