Hon. Willie Brown, Jr. Calls McCalls: “Academy Award Winning Caterer”

At the Consular Corp party at City Hall hosted by Charlotte and George Shultz in December, the Hon. Willie Brown, Jr. said it “was as festive as a party can be because McCall’s, the Academy Award winning caterer in my opinion, decided to tour the globe for hors d’ oeuvres to honor the more than 70 consulates represented at the party.”

Writing for the San Francisco Chronicle, the former mayor wrote: “McCall’s, as busy as the holiday season must be for them, made each one of the food items seem like it had been made only for you.”

Brown said: “There was a dish to please each one: grilled truffled cheese and porcini sandwiches; chicken shumai; roasted butternut and chestnuts in pumpkin ravioli; smoked Scottish salmon; and crispy prosciutto chips with manchego cheese and pear-apple marmalade.”

In another post for the Chronicle, the former mayor of San Francisco, went to a party at a location he declined to name saying, “This food made you want to linger. It was just the right amount and prepared as if McCalls had actually done it. And I would guess that it was McCalls, not that I visited this private club’s kitchen.”

Both blog posts were unexpected presents. Lucas Schoemaker, our President and Executive Chef, said: “We are humbled and honored by these generous comments.”
