The Kollinger team had the opportunity to create a brand new dish inspired by Casa Dragones Tequila for a private event. We were thrilled to introduce the flavors of Casa Dragones Tequila to some VIP circles of Dallas socialites. Casa Dragones Tequila is sipping tequila, which means there is no need of a lime or chasers. It is also great for selected food parings. This being the reason CEO and celebrity Chef Jeffrey Kollinger from The Spice of Life Catering (SOLC) was inspired to create a dish to compliment the complex, yet smooth taste of Tequila Casa Dragones Joven.
Casa Dragones Joven tequila is a small batch of handcrafted 100% Blue Agave Joven Tequila. It has a nice blend of silver tequila with extra aged tequila, rested in new American oak barrels for five years. To add a more complex and smooth taste, Joven is perfect for not only sipping, but to pair with our Agave Roasted Birdsboro Duckling Crepette: King Trumpet Mushroom, Squash Puree, and Asparagus Spike Creamer Pea Vinaigrette accompanied with a Crispy Herb Salad.
”In order to create a harmonious palate with Joven’s warm and earthy sophistication, Chef Jeffrey Kollinger fashioned a dish embellished with citrus high notes and a hint of spice to accompany and embody the tequila’s pure essence.“
We give our projects the care and special attention of our core SOLC principals, and this spectacular event was no exception. To mark the occasion we created an artistic ensemble to enrich the uniqueness of Casa Dragones Joven tequila. We used the highest quality ingredients available and the signature dishes were prepared by the artistic hands of Chef Jeffrey Kollinger and 25 staff members to ensure the experience was one-of-a-kind.
Our passed hors d’ oeuvres included a Mini Crispy Tuna Tartar Taco: Tequila Spiked Aioli, Pico and Micro Cilantro.
Wild Mushroom Risotto Cake: Bistro Fork Chervil Crème Fraiche and Chive.
Crispy Texas Corn Fritters: Bistro Fork, Avocado Jalapeno Ranch and Scallion Silvers.
Seared Sea Bass Cake: Bistro Fork, Smokey Remoulade and Micro Green.
Here at The Spice of Life Catering we were excited to share this menu with some of our best clients and longtime friends including former Dallas Cowboy legend Emmitt Smith. We also had the opportunity to meet new friends such as radio personality, television host and producer Ryan Seacrest. We are also excited to announce that we will carry Casa Dragones Joven tequila at our Tillman’s Roadhouse bar Top Shelf bar starting mid-October.
