Nacho (Gluten Free) Nacho Man

We travelled to Pendleton Friday Evening to do a gluten free nacho bar wedding rehearsal dinner. Something sounds really exotic about a gluten free nacho bar. Sadly a gluten free nacho bar looks and tastes the same as a regular nacho bar. Apparently a few guests have pretty serious gluten allergies and the host stressed the importance of referencing labels to avoid possible glutinous agents. We were successful. Did not make anyone sick or kill anyone. Another feather in our Graze Catering Cap.

Highlights and Lowlights

  • With a little help from my friend Ben, I discovered how to make black beans taste more than just edible, but actually tasty. Thanks Ben. Your black beans are now the second best I have ever tasted.

  • The roasted tomatilla salsa was really really good. How good... really good.

  • In case you are wondering how many pounds of chips to purchase from La Calanderia to feed 60 nacho eaters the answer is about 12 pounds (17 pounds less than the amount purchased by this caterer).

  • Do not attempt to cook in the "kitchen" of the Pendleton Round Up 'Let Er Buck Room'. So gross we refused to wash dishes there, just packed all the dirties and took them back to the catering kitchen.
