The Dish: Egg Soufflé Had enough of the same old scrambled eggs for breakfast? Consider the egg soufflé from South Florida-based caterer Silver Lining. Executive chefs Andrew Whiteman and James Donato came up with the recipe. They combine shrimp, sautéed mixed vegetables, creamy boursin cheese, a bit of nutty asiago and beaten egg with heavy cream and seasonings. The quiche-like mixture is then baked in a croissant shell. Hey, nobody said it's heart healthy. But it tastes great.

The Caterer: Silver Lining, Pompano Beach and West Palm Beach, Fla., (954) 917-1020, www.silverliningflightcatering.com

Silver Lining Inflight Catering is the culinary child of Mitch Amsterdam and Mike Linder, who launched the business in 2003. Today, it has 55 employees and kitchens in Pompano Beach and West Palm Beach, and it serves business aviation customers at most of South Florida's airports. In July, the pair opened the Jet Runway Café next to Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport.

Among the standouts on Silver Lining's varied menu: vanilla poached lobster, which has a smooth sauce reduction from the poaching liquid combined with cream, vanilla and brandy; and Moroccan spiced lamb, which comes with a tropical mojito pureé (primarily mint, sugar and rum with a hint of garlic).

“"My model for business is the Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other, and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team." ”
