Lets talk about food and lots of it! Nontraditional weddings are no longer on the road less traveled. Chic, lounge style receptions are in. Modern brides feature contemporary approaches in every detail of their wedding. Nothing is singled out, including the tasty food stations that compliment their reception style.
Food stations provide an intimate atmosphere allowing the bride and groom, with their families, to interact with guests during the reception. Top notch catering companies garnish food to perfection making it pleasing to the eye taste buds.
Contrasting food stations allow you the flexibility to please a larger crowd and do not limit you to a couple of entrées. Love sushi and Mediterranean cuisines? Have both and more! Arrange a hummus, baba ganush, falafel spread and warm pita chips with tasty dipping sauces.
Indulge your guests with a sushi delight as the chef demonstrates their artistry and creates culinary masterpieces. Include some veggie rolls for guests with shellfish or seafood allergies. Most chefs can make those separately to avoid seafood contamination. I’m keeping my promising and suggesting more than two options.
Who doesn’t like pasta? We’re not talking about spaghetti and meatballs (unless you prefer this of course). Instead, try cheese tortellini, herb pesto, and accompanying Alfredo and marinara sauces.
Tappas, Risotto and salad stations are delicious too. Carving stations are an elegant addition to any regale and your menu spread will be quite impressive. Throw a little fruit and desserts in the mix!
I encourage you to also serve a few customary selections for the more conservative food enthusiast while incorporating more exquisite items too. Your guests will relish the experience.
