My fiance and I were having trouble coming up with a menu for our buffet, and all of a sudden, it clicked! We’re both anglophiles, so we would like to have some British fare for some of our wedding food. What kind of British food could we have at our wedding that can be prepared beforehand?
Also, what other foods can we add for picky eaters that wouldn’t seem too out of place?

by finger food, do you mean canapes..?

@audry2222: Sort of. More like easy to eat, but it hasn’t got to be in one bite.

Cucumber Sandwiches or Egg Mayonaise, Smoked Salmon with Cream Cheese, Coronation Chicken and Ham and Mustard
Smoked Salmon served on a Bellini with Creme Fraiche or Soft Cheese
Scones, clotted cream and jam
Mini Sausages on Sticks
This all depends on whether you are referring to canapes or something ike the English Afternoon Tea

English Afternoon Tea is a pretty good way to describe what we want. But we also love Cornish pasties and Shepard’s pie.

ooh have you ever heard of a staffordshire oatcake … those are very nice with cheese 🙂
i think it would help to know what type of buffet you mean… to me a finger buffet is sausage rolls , pork pies and cocktail sausages, kids party food 🙂
the problem to me would be just like our accents, our foods also differ from town to town.
but typically British i think applecore has most of it covered

We are having mini Shepherds pies as one of our canapes, you could also do mini pasties and mini toad in the holes (sausages in yorkshire pudding for those that may not know)
The link below is the canape menu that my caterers have for us to choose from, got some good old english stuff in there
another great one, is to cook sausages, and then put a slit in the top and pipe some mash in for finger food sausage and mash 🙂

so many good suggestions! I’d add bacon buttys and for the fish n chips you could put them in a small cup.
@j_jaye: are you from the north (lancashire hot pots, cumberland sausage)?
