- Wedding: March 2013
FI and I are thinking about a buffet of Greek food! He says his family really likes it, and I think my family would as well.
Beer (brews TBA)
White wine (both wine types TBA)
2 Signature cocktails, TBA!
Cocktail Hour Apps:
Large Bowl of Hummus (small appetizer plates provided)
– Mediterranean salad: Spring greens, sun-dried tomatoes, walnuts, gorgonzola cheese, with white balsamic and pear vinaigrette
– Artisan breads
– Beef Souvlaki: Marinated chunks of sirloin, skewered and charbroiled
– Tzatziki sauce: Kefir cheese, cucumber, garlic, and dill
– Skordalia: tangy potato and garlic blended spread with cilantro. Garnished with sweet Anaheim pepper and grilled zucchini
– Riganato: Whole fresh chicken, cut in pieces and marinated in lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, and hint of garlic. Roasted and served with lemon potatoes and garlic aioli.
– Briami: Garden fresh vegatables braised with Herbs de Provence and Pizzaiola tomato sauce
– Couscous: with raisins, onion, and chicken base (some with veggie base, for the vegetarians)
– Fire roasted vegetables: marinated eggplant, zucchini, and sweet red pepper, roasted in open flame
– Decaf and regular coffee
– Wedding cake (made by moi!): almond cake with raspberry filling and amaretto bavarian cream, or chocolate cake with mocha mousse
We haven’t gotten a proposal back yet, but FI and I went to a tasting/consultation, and it was DELICIOUS. I was even opposed to Greek food before because I thought I didn’t like all the tanginess, but this food was really tasty. I know it’s not nice and fancy, but our venue requires caterers from a certain list, and the other (supposedly cheaper) caterers quoted us about 3k over our food budget.
What do you ladies think? Would you like to eat this food? Of course, I know buffets can be annoying sometimes, so I would try to do everything mentioned in my previous thread “How to do a buffet well.”
