A feast fit for a king, or a bunch of queens I should say, is what we arrived to at the Proof of the Pudding headquarters this afternoon! We were completely stunned as we walked into a spacious tasting room with such beautiful floral arrangements, amazing table and buffet décor, and our own personal server. I think it’s safe to say that Proof of the Pudding believes in the “go big or go home” motto when it comes to food and presentation. They had a smorgasbord of deliciousness laid out before us, with a world-renowned chef, Vagn Nielsen to match.

Among the plethora of nourishment to choose from were Asian Chicken & Cajun Shrimp Quesadillas, Loganville Grits with Blackberries and Raspberry Jus, Olive Flan with Ahi Tuna and Grilled Vegetables, and POPcorn Shrimp, Chicken, and Lobster! Shut up! Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, our super-friendly server Tom brought out the Zuppa Inglaise in gorgeous martini glasses for everyone, Chocolate Raspberry Cake with Cream Corn Ice Cream, and some Margarita Cupcakes that definitely left us buzzing!

After several attempts of our bellies trying to burst open, we managed to keep it together and talk about what we were really there for. Getting acquainted with one another and learning more about the services we each provided was of high importance and boy did we cover every base. We learned about their ever-expanding company growth, their exclusive partnership with the World of Coke, and their fabulous new “Gourmet To Go” service which features vegan and gluten-free options, party trays, and even delivery!

We were so comfortable with Dina Biondo and Ali Barber from Proof, that onlookers would’ve thought we were one big happy family. Dina and Ali were so knowledgeable about the industry and were enthusiastic about working with Janice Blackmon Events in the future, as were we with them. The attention to detail at this tasting was flawlessly executed and is something we can definitely relate to and forever appreciate! Proof of the Pudding is an excellent choice if you’re looking for innovative food creations, unique presentations, and service that is nothing short of pure royal treatment.  We are happy to recommend Proof of the Pudding as one of our Preferred Vendor Partners!

Thank you to Dina, Ali, Chef Vagn and Tom for treating us to such a delightful and tasty afternoon!!!!
