CHEF-ACTION STATIONS

Chef action stations are the perfect way to show personality and offer guests a custom catering menu. At each station, a chef will prepare items to order. These stations can be as simple as a mashed potato display or as intricate as a martini glass with smoked tomato grits alongside chili shrimp and smoked beef tenderloin with a jalapeno hollandaise.
