  • At Chesapeake Traditions we cater to varied celebrations. One of the events we would like to highlight and share is the launch party of the new website free slot machines of the online gambling company NLG. This must have been the first casino or gambling related event where every dish contained succulent crab. All the guests of leovegas at the launch party of the new free slot machines website loved all the crab dishes we had created for the event.
  • Another even that we catered to was on a fantastic summer evening, Jane and Perry van Zant had their wedding. We had the honor to treat their guests in a culinary way.  For starters some delicious crab soup, then of course our famous crab cakes. The guests were delighted with them. Here you can find some pictures of the event.
