Nordic food is a popular trend for 2012 that not many people saw coming. Most will crave the comfort the Scandinavian food offers. In short, it will remind you of what Grandma used to make.
Igniting the taste buds include: Yellow Pea Soup, Lefse (flatbread), Gravlax (raw salmon), Mazarin Torte, Skagen Toast (baby shrimp, crème fraiche, caviar, and dill), Lihamojakka Beef Stew, and Chicken Fricassee with Mushrooms & Dill Dumplings.
If these basic menu items remind you of home, let us know. We would love the chance to create the comfort food for you! What food do you miss most from your childhood?
Did you know that Chez Hay offers full bar service both on- and off-site? Both can be set up to your preference – fully cash, fully hosted, or a combination of both! If you have a favorite drink, we can try our best to get it for you for your event. Go even one step further and offer a signature drink for your event!
Need a bartender for an event at your home? We do that as well! Whether serving our alcohol or yours, our bartenders are excellently trained and will make the most of any event you have! When serving our alcohol, we bring the mixers, ice, and garnishes, too! Call us today to reserve our services for your next event!
During the holiday parties at Chez Hay this season, we offered a different signature cocktail for each event. One of the more popular was the Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake Martini. To make this drink take 2 parts Raspberry Vodka, ½ part chocolate liqueur, ½ part Irish Cream and serve in cocoa-rimmed martini glass. Enjoy!
This past weekend, Chez Hay had the opportunity to work with two great groups at their events: Lincoln Christian and Phi Kappa Theta. Lincoln Christian occupied our space downtown and enjoyed Balsamic Marinated Chicken with Provolone, Fettuccine Alfredo, Smashed Potatoes, and Caesar Salad. At the UNL Student Union, Phi Kappa Theta dined on a served lunch of Chicken Breasts with Sundried Tomato and Havarti, Pasta Primavera, Potatoes, Garlic Rolls, Salad, and Dessert Bites. Thank you to both groups for thinking of Chez Hay for your events!
