Fruit to Start the Day

Because of my occupation, Iā€™m often invited to various types of conferences. Many times, these meetings begin in the early morning hours. Thankfully, most of the organizations that sponsor these conferences provide the invitees with a continental breakfast. However, at many events, the selection of foods only includes an assortment of donuts and bagels. Because I like to eat healthy, I wish more people would offer fruit for breakfast at these conferences. If you plan the breakfast menu for corporate conferences, consider adding different types of fruit to your standard bread and pastry offerings. On this blog, you will discover the best types of fruit to offer for breakfast at corporate conferences.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is hailed as Napa Valley's signature wine. It is known for its full body, rich and dense fruit-forward flavors, and exquisite texture. Stop at a winery that produces this wine and indulge in the Cabernet's rich flavor with aged prime beef steaks, beef tenderloins, and other red meats that are cooked to perfection.

Pinot Noir

Next, try Napa Valley's very own Pinot Noir. This wine is known for its fruity fragrance, silky texture, and notes of cherry and cranberry flavors. Pinot Noir demands a dish with enough complexity to match its depth. Try it with lean cuts of meat like duck and quail or creamy and luxurious vegetables like mushrooms and truffle.

Dessert Wines

Finally, end the day with some perfectly aged dessert wine, Port, or Sparkling wine. These wines are known to pair well with dark chocolate desserts, a variety of cheeses, nuts, and dried fruits, and rich treats like cheesecake.
