Our Family of Companies
Holiday Greetings From HRG
It's hard to believe, but another year is about to come and go! 2016 has been a particularly rewarding one for all of us at Hospitality Resource Group, as we worked with our long-time business partners to develop new relationships and clients. We would like to take this time to recognize the good works of the many organizations who lend a helping hand in our communities and bring joy to those in need, during the holidays and throughout the year. 

And as we gather with our family and friends to celebrate the holiday season, all of us here at HRG wish you and those you care most about - all the best for a peaceful and joyous holiday season!

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the HRG team and my business partner Michael Lattari for yet another tremendous year. 

So before we close the books on 2016, we thought we would share a few recipes from our friends at Caperberry Events, and invite you to  visit our HRG Facebook page  to see photos of our annual You are 'Cause' for Celebration party, as we celebrated the Westchester area not-for-profit community and the people who have worked so hard to make it such a great place to work and live.   
With warm regards,

Special Holiday Recipes from Joe Sasso, Executive Chef, N.Y. Hospitality Group/Caperberry Events
Mini Smoked-Salmon Croque-Monsieur
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 10 ounces thinly sliced smoked salmon, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Gruyère cheese (6 oz.)
  • 1 cup minced chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 40 slices of cocktail rye bread
  • 40 slices of cocktail pumpernickel bread
  • 6 large eggs
How to Make:    
  • In a medium saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons of the butter.
  • Stir in the flour until completely blended, then cook over moderately high heat, stirring constantly, until the roux is golden brown, about 3 minutes.
  • Gradually whisk in the milk until smooth. Bring the sauce to a boil, whisking constantly.
  • Reduce the heat to moderately low and simmer, whisking often, until no floury taste remains, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the sauce cool, stirring, until very warm.
  • Stir in the smoked salmon, Gruyère, chives and nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper and let the sauce cool completely.
  • Spread half of the rye slices with a rounded tablespoon of the salmon mixture and close the sandwiches. Repeat with the pumpernickel slices and the remaining salmon mixture.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°.
  • In a large, shallow bowl, beat the eggs thoroughly.
  • Stack 2 or 3 large rimmed baking sheets on one side of the stove.
  • In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over moderate heat.
  • Dip 8 of the sandwiches in the beaten eggs to coat completely; cook the egg-dipped sandwiches over moderately high heat, turning once, until browned, about 1 minute per side.
  • Transfer the sandwiches to one of the baking sheets, leaving a little space between each one.
  • Repeat with the remaining sandwiches and beaten eggs, using 1 tablespoon of butter per batch.
  • Reheat the sandwiches for about 8 minutes, until piping hot. Cut the sandwiches in half on the diagonal, skewer with small wooden forks and serve hot.

Sparkling Pear-Prosecco Punch
  • 2 c. pear nectar
  • 1 c. cranberry juice
  • 3 c. prosecco or sparkling wine
  • sliced pears, for garnish
How to Make:  
  • Combine pear nectar and cranberry juice in a punch bowl. Top with prosecco or sparkling wine.
  • Garnish with sliced pears and serve chilled.
