Chris Brugler Catering

I recently had the pleasure of enjoying a wonderful meal made by caterer
Christopher Brugler of Chris Brugler Catering.
We began with a perfect appetizer (pictured above) - sweet potato cakes with a black bean salsa and chipotle aioli. Other appetizers included mushrooms stuffed with chorizo and golden raisins and mandarin orange crab cakes. Flavorful and delicious Charred butternut squash soup followed. It was served with Chris's famous cranberry and walnut challah.
Our entree (above) - braised short ribs - served with roasted tomatoes, asparagus, potato puree and Bordelaise juice. The short ribs were moist and tender and seasoned perfectly.
We cannot forget dessert! White cholcolate bread pudding with caramel and vanilla ice cream was made with the wonderful challah. The strong espresso chocolate pot de creme was a nice contrast to the sweet bread pudding.
Chris Brugler began mastering his craft while he was still in culinary school on the east coast - working as a chef at The Ritz Carlton.
He spent six years with Ritz Carlton, including four years at five star, five diamond Ritz Carlton Buckhead. Chris moved to the west coast and began cooking for private families. He was asked repeatedly to cater parties for his client's friends. Lucky for everyone - Chris now caters dinners and parties of all sizes.
Chris also has a challah baking business - Challah King. He bakes eleven differnt varieties and the delicious bread is sold at Nate&Al.
