Shout out for Elbows Allowed!
September 7, 2009
To celebrate my mother-in-laws 80th birthday this past August, we hired a catering crew to come to our home and prepare a birthday feast. And what a feast! Elbows Allowed, a brand new, local catering company in Cokato, prepared and served a fantastic meal, all made from scratch and home cooked!
Bacon wrapped artichoke hearts
Prosciutto wrapped asparagus
Garlic mashed potatoes
Raspberry pear walnut spinach salad
Fresh garden vegetable medley
Raspberry topped cheese cake drizzled with dark chocolate
Basil strawberry punch
I believe that this new company is headed for some big time bookings! Elbows Allowed is a dream that two friends, Betsy Niemela (my sister-in-law) and Mary Raisanen, had talked of pursuing over the years while they worked in the corporate world. Finding themselves both laid off from their corporate jobs this past winter, they decided they had nothing to lose by following their catering dream! Both of these ladies come from large families, and grew up helping their mothers prepare home cooked meals from scratch, and Mama Mia, does it taste like it!
Catering to parties of any size or occasion, these gals are fast gaining a reputation for outstanding food! Give them a call for your next special occasion – 612.845.6573 or 612.229.1703
