National Cherries Jubilee Day is here and we are highlighting our live action cherries jubilee crepe station! But before we get to the yummy pictures…
A Brief History of Cherries Jubilee
Cherries jubilee is a dessert that consists of cherries in a sauce, usually a simple syrup, flambéed in some kind of liquor (typically brandy, or kirschwasser). It is served as a dessert topping, usually on ice cream (or our favorite: atop warm, freshly made crepes). Cherries jubilee is generally credited as being created by chef Georges-Auguste Escoffier for Queen Victoria’s Jubilee celebrations in the late 19th century – hence the name!
Our Marketing Director, Katie Sanchez, recently took a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth! While there, she kept an eye open at what tips caterers and event planners could learn from the entertainment giant. Here’s Katie:
“I’ve been visiting Disneyland almost yearly since I was 4. I am no stranger to the magic, attractions, and treats the park has to offer. However, beyond the shiny castle and your favorite characters roaming the grounds, Disneyland is a major operation to carry out every single day of the year; an organism that must run smoothly and quickly to keep on top of the show. With an average of 16 million guests per year, Disneyland has the large task of feeding – and appealing to the senses – of all these guests!
So what can caterers and event planners learn or adopt from Disney when it comes to feeding and appealing to guests? Disneyland, and Disney in general, is a brand with a die-hard loyal following. How can you as a caterer or event planner, infuse the same wow-factor into your events and make your guests loyal to your company?
