Chef Elizabeth brought a menu appropriate to a ballet, featuring a number of Bite Catering Couture's signature miniature catered foods: creole crab cakes, caprese salad skewers, Nutcracker cones, and Nutcracker "Sweet" (espresso chocolate bonbons and caramel nut pie). Guests referred to the combination as "Food on point."
