We got to pick our own menu for our tasting, which was really nice.  (It’s next week).  I think if I was in your situation I would just try to get a general feel for how they prepare fish, veggie, beef, chicken.  For apps, I would try to pick one of each type of food and proabably a fish or a beef. 

You might also try and go there for dinner one time to try out other menu options if you don’t feel like you can get a good feel for the food from the tasting.

Mmm I am hungry!

We had the exact same situation.  There was a list of appetizers, salads and entrees to choose from but we could only choose 4 appetizers, 2 salads, etc.  Plus we had to pay for it!!  It was pricey ($100!) so I was careful of choosing the food.  But I didn’t know how the food would taste like so I just chose what I thought sounded good.  Well the foods that I picked weren’t that great.  My fiance and I were really disappointed and told our event coordinator this and she offered us another tasting for free but I didn’t want to go back there again (2 hour drive).  So I just asked her what were the top choices that previous guests enjoyed and she told me, so I picked the ones she suggested.  I say ask the coordinator or the caterer  the same question and go from there.  Unless you ate there before you have no idea how the food taste like.  Good luck!!

Do they do the same menu every time? If you have a whole year, you could attend other tastings and try different things. You could make an informed decision about the general quality of the food, and use that to decide to book them or not. But specifics about which meals could be worked out later, after multiple tastings. I’m not sure if they would allow you to go to multiple tastings, but it’s worth a try!
