    I chose the Potato & Leek Soup, for some warmth and I think potato soup is generally well-liked. And for the salad, I chose Spinach Salad with Goat Cheese, Roasted Red Peppers, and Warm Pine Nuts.  A heavier and lighter appetizer. 

    Runner up for salad (for me) was the Winter Greens with Caramelized Pears & Maple glazed Walnuts. 

    But I have to say that they all sound yummy 🙂 If I didn’t dislike mushrooms all together, I’d be tempted by the gnocchi- I love gnocchi so much!

    I voted for the mushroom gnocchi and the winter greens, but I would warn that some people can be picky about mushrooms (or downright allergic). Not sure about your crowd, but we are having a few last minute swaps on people’s plates because of mushrooms. Who knew!?! Either way, the choices all sound great and perfect for a cold November night!

    Oh, my goodness – I’ll take one of everything except the mushrooms!

    I’m sorry, that’s not terribly helpful, but, on the bright side, I think this is a win-win(-win-win-win …) decision!

    Do you have the opportunity to do a tasting of these?

    Wow.  Surprisingly I actually ended up voting for the two most popular choices.  The mushroom gnocchi sounds yummy and the winter greens with caramelized pears and walnuts was just fancy enough for me without going overboard with pungent cheese (feta tastes fuzzy to me.)

    The Rotolo and Potato Soup were my next choices as hot apps.  For salad my second choice would be Field of Greens with Balsamic (even though this is the most common catered salad, it’s popular and used often for a reason; most people will eat it.)

    My votes didn’t necessarily reflect my own personal opinion.  My fiance is a vegan and has a horrible time finding food that he can eat at weddings.  He never would complain to anyone, but I can tell when he’s miserable because he can’t find anything to eat.  We always have to stock up on snack bars for him.  I chose the menu items that seemed to be the most vegan-friendly.  It’s not that he disagrees with eating meat or dairy, his body just hates him when he does.  He’s also allergic to onions. Anyway, the point is that since I started dating him, I have become much more conscious about special diets and what some people can and cannot eat.  I luckily can eat anything (aside from raw basil, which gives me heart burn and makes me feel like I’m dying) so my choices were based on that.

    BTW, the wild mushroom gnocchi served in a truffle cream sauce sounds AMAZING and if I were basing my vote on just my own personal opinion, this would be it!

    My eyes were immediately drawn to the mushroom gnocchi, so that gets my first vote!  For the second, I say the winter greens salad with carmelized pears.  Also, can I come to your wedding?  😀

    The one that sounds the best to me would be the spinich and ricotta stuffed Rotolo. Nummmy! I also like he idea of having a sald as well and I love spinach salad. The soup would be nice also.:)
