The following recipes were provided by Six Star Catering.
Marinated Feta, Olive, English Cucumber and Mint Pic
2 teaspoons fennel seeds
2 teaspoons orange zest
3 tablespoons fresh orange
1 teaspoon freshly ground black
4 ounces feta cheese,
cut into 24 (1⁄2-inch) cubes
24 6-inch wooden skewers
24 fresh mint leaves
12 pitted green olives, halved
1⁄4 large English cucumber, seeded and cut into 1⁄2-inch chunks
Combine fennel seeds, orange zest and juice, and pepper. Gently stir in the feta and marinate for one hour at room temperature or up to 3 hours in the refrigerator. (Marinate overnight to save time.)
To assemble, place one mint leaf on a skewer, about 3⁄4-inch up, add one olive half and one cucumber chunk. Place one cube of feta on the end. These can be made several hours in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Bring to room temperature before serving.
1⁄2 small can tuna
2 hard boiled eggs
1 red pepper
1⁄4 cup frozen peas
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook potatoes with skin. When they are tender, let them cool, peel and cut into small cubes.
Peel the carrots and boil in salted water until tender. Let cool and cut into small cubes.
Mix the potato, carrot, peeled and chopped eggs (or grated), diced red pepper and peas. Season and add the drained tuna and a squeeze of lemon juice. Finally, add mayonnaise. Mix well and serve or refrigerate tightly covered.
1⁄3 cup Roquefort cheese
7⁄8 cup cream cheese
30 red seedless grapes washed and dried
11⁄4 cup pecans
Preheat oven to 350 and scatter pecans on baking sheet; toast until browned; set aside to cool.
In food processor add the Roquefort and cream cheese and cream till smooth. Transfer to a bowl and add the grapes; toss with spatula to cover the grapes in cheese.
In small processor, chop pecans. Place them on a sheet pan and drop individual grapes onto the pecans a few at a time, shaking the baking sheet around to cover the grapes with the pecans. Place on parchment paper in a container and chill until ready to serve.
