    I would want some sort of vaguely exciting salad… rocket and mixed greens with tomatoes, black olives, pine nuts, and avocados, for example? Also, a more exciting variety of vegetables would be nice.

    The cheese, nuts, and baked goat’s cheese all sound lovely.

    It is very hard to think of what you could swap out without knowing exactly how they are doing the food, if that makes any sense. My advice would be to picture it all in your head (which you can do better than I because of the tastings you’ve been to) and think about all the colours. If the buffet has lots of different colours and textures, I think you’re onto a winner (colours + textures = variety).

    @rusticbee2014:  if the lesser was only a $2 per person savings for that much less, I’d stick with this one.  can you mayeb save else where in your budget?

    I think it looks great. If you know you have red meat eaters I think you could get rid of the chicken or pasta. I also think it would be  okay to cut the fruit salad if you want. If you don’t like green beans you could ask to switch to broccoli or asparagus. But green beans are nice because most people like them (but obviously not all!).

    Are you going to taste the food?  It all sounds really good…um but I am hungry and have been drinking a bit.  !!  I love green beans.  I love them especially when they are “lightly sauteed”…which is why I wonder if they honestly lightly sautee them or whether they cook them to death.  

     

    I think it all sounds good except the chocolate covered strawberries.

    @rusticbee2014:  sounds awesome, I would remove choc strawberries (even though I love them, but its more of a dessert then an appetiser), and remove fruit salad as you have so many other dessrt choices.  I would also remove the garden pasta depending on how it is seasoned and what it comes with as have had garden pasta that is quite plain and people might not need it.  Everything else sounds amazing to me.
