Andretti Autosports hosts annual ‘Night Before’ Party

Posted · Add Comment

Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering enjoys being a part of the Indy racing scene – from behind the scenes. Jacquie and her fast-paced ‘500 team’ is excited to cater the traditional ‘family and friends’ party for the Andrettis the night before this year’s running of the Indy 500.

The well-attended event will be held at the Andretti Autosports  headquarters on West 71st Street, and will most definitely include just as many famous racing personalities as well-known celebrities.

Set to begin in the early evening, the party kicks off with some amazing butler-served hors d’oeuvres for the “High Rollers Club,” including:

  • House Made Falafel with Lemon Tahini Sauce
  • Mini Cones with Tuna Poke and Black Sesame Seeds
  • Mini Chicken Creole Crepes
  • Filet Mignon with Horseradish Cream on Toasted Baguette with Caramelized Onions and Fresh Rosemary

The Main Event, the Andretti’s focal point of the evening, begins at 7:00 with:

  • Chorizo Meatballs with Chipotle Marinara
  • Bourbon Chicken Skewers
  • Mini Truffled Mac and Cheese in Parmesan Cups
  • Mini Chicken and Waffles with Local Maple Syrup
  • Cilantro and Lime Shrimp Lollipops
  • Fig and Gorgonzola Crostini with Caramelized Onion
  • Vegan Crab Cakes with Cilantro Lime Aioli

There will also be a Slider Station with guests’ choice of Grass fed Beef Sliders, Buffalo Chicken Sliders, or Portabello Mushroom Sliders.

Jacquie’s team has also assembled a Small Plate Station for those with “Mini-500” appetites, with: Shrimp and Grits, Pulled Pork Parfait, Pimento Macaroni and Cheese, or Barbeque Pullled Pork with Creamy Coleslaw

And, for those who prefer their veggies, this year we’ve added a Salad Station with:

  • Mini Beet Salad with Goat Cheese and Truffle Honey
  • Mini Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes, Mozzarella Balls, Fresh Basil and Black Sea Salt
  • Mini Quinoa Salad with Spinach, Tomatoes, Cucumber, Green Onion, Olive Oil

At Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering, we love the month of May – and all the wonderful festivities that go with it.
