So my FH and I went for food tasting, and now we are unsure about our entree choices.
Initially we were going to do chicken & seafood.
However, when we tried chicken & salmon during our food tasting, while the salmon dish was delicious, chicken wasn’t that good.
We are rather against having beef, because we have never been to a wedding where beef entree tastes good…but if we cancel out beef, then our only other option is duck.
Would it be ok to have duck & salmon as the two entree choices?
P.S. A vegetarian dish is already included as the third option.

@Redholix: hmm… did you taste the duck? I’ve yet to have a duck entree at a wedding, and I’d be nervous about picking it. Duck is really hard to do right – it can be super fatty/gamey if it isn’t seared properly and then cooked. If you didn’t try it yet, I’d go back again.
Or, ask them for a different chicken dish. I ruled out any cream sauces for ours, since they tend to be either broken or flavorless.

I know a lot of people who would not eat either duck or salmon.

I wouldn’t eat either. I’m allergic to seafood and duck kinda skeeves me out. I know, it’s my problem, but if I were you, I’d ask for another chicken dish and test it out before ruling out a more ‘familiar’ food entirely.

I also know a lot of people that wouldn’t eat either, myself included. I actually do like duck, but ohmygod the calories, lol. I’d rather have chicken or beef personally.

@Redholix: Those are both flavours that people either love or hate…so i would avoid that. Did you try the beef? or do they have another chicken option?

Here is my suggestion for the menu…
1. One beef dish
2. one chicken dish
3. one seafood dish
4. one vegetarian dish
I really do not think that many guests will order duck……

Ok if I count em up right the options you had to choose from were:
- Fish / Salmon
- and a Vegetarian Option
Of that list… my own preferences would be (and I consider myself to be a pretty average Guest)
Chicken – Beef – Fish – and Veg.
If not the Fish then the Seafood
Duck for me would NEVER make the cut
And I think if you are going with Fish or Duck then that is pretty limiting
(Know quite a few people who won’t eat either… too gamey… or they are alergic to Fish)
This is exactly WHY Chicken is always on the menu, it truly is the SAFE choice
Hope this helps,

Duck would be a very different choice for a wedding and I don’t know how many people would actually eat duck. But if you could have 3 options then adding chicken would be great.

@Redholix: Hmmm if I were attending your wedding I would have to choose vegetarian (something I am not!) And the last time I had to do that at a wedding the vegetarian dish was NOT good.
What is your vegetarian dish?

I would eat duck, but not salmon. I know a lot of people who would not eat either.

I’d go with chicken or beef because people are picky and duck and salmon are not anywhere near as popular as beef or chicken.
I do know quite a few people who would not eat either one. I would, but I love all food and I’m the opposite of picky.
Do they have any other chicken options? What was the beef option?
Post # 14
I would be thrilled with both, but I can think of a lot of people who wouldn’t like either choice.

I’ve never had duck and don’t know that a wedding is where I’d try it OR that it would be any better than standard wedding chicken/beef.

@lovekiss: @Eight6Eleven: @Westwood: Oh wow, I didn’t know so many people disliked salmon. o_o;;
@BlondeBee: @HappinessIsInDaisies: They do not have another chicken option. FH is a bit reluctant to go in for another food tasting because of the extra fee (first time was “free” with $25 gratuity – otherwise it’s $66 per person). So we were trying to figure out a safe blind choice…(that sounds so bad now that I’ve written it down haha).
