Recently we covered a Taste of Jay’s Event, a tasting experience by Jay’s Catering at their grand venue in downtown Santa Ana, The Estate on Second. Taste of Jay’s is where future brides and grooms, event coordinators and more come to taste and sample what Jay’s Catering can offer for their wedding or event. Not only focused on the food, Taste of Jay’s offers a tour of their majestic venue, as well as a chance to get some inspiration from their seasonal decor, flowers, and musical vendors, like Vox DJs who was spinning the latest and greatest tracks all night!
Jay’s Event Specialists first greets their guests at the entrance to help guide the experience and answer any questions. Then it’s time to chow down and pig out on all of the delicious appetizers, entrees, sides and desserts from Jay’s most popular event menus.
Here’s a little taster of what was eaten at the event… The first station at the grand entrance of the Crystal Ballroom was Tuscan Bruschetta where we could create our own bruschetta from a wide variety of delicious toppings, including Spring Pea Hummus, Caramelized Maui Onions with Roasted Garlic, Mixed Heirloom Tomatoes, White Truffle Oil and Fig Balsamic Syrup!
Our team’s personal favorite had to be the Mashed Potato and Mac & Cheese Bar. With options like Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Mashed Potatoes and Panko crusted Mac & Cheese, we could not resist! Jay’s also served up delectable toppings for this station like Applewood Smoked Bacon, Chives, Cheese, Brown Sugar, Pecans and Butter.
And this was just a small portion of the food in the Crystal Ballroom. EVERY room in the historical building was filled with food! Their other popular stations included Flatbreads, Tacos, Poke, BBQ Sliders, a Carvery, Chicken entrees, Paella and Pasta. (Hungry yet?) To end the night on a sweet note, Jay’s had a Donut jammed Dessert Station, featuring sweet-tooth favorites like Chocolate Raspberry Decadence, Macarons, Fresh Fruit Tarts, and of course, mountains and mountains of donuts.
