We are looking forward to our 3rd Annual Easter Egg Hunt coming up this Saturday, March 26th!
We would like to thank Virginia This Morning and WTVR for having us on last week to share a great spring Scallop Recipe and to talk about the Easter Egg Hunt to benefit Easter Seals UCP.
Emily, one of our Event Producers, Ryan Traylor, Director of Catering at Mosaic Catering & Events and Chef Glenn Hooper of Mosaic did a great job on Virginia This Morning. Chef Glenn shared a wonderful Scallop recipe (eee below) and Emily shared details of the special event.

Preheat an oven to 400 degrees. Remove the stem from the cauliflower and cut into small florets then toss in oil, salt

Melt 1/2 tablespoon of the butter in a medium saucepan. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring

butter slowly to the puree while blending on low.
