Do you have any vegetarians coming? Just thinking there is not much non-meat food.

Your appetizers are really seafood heavy. I think they sound delicious, but there are some people that aren’t seafood fans. I would see if you could offer one or two non-seafood choices other than fruit. 

I might also add a pasta option for the vegetarians in the group. 

But, seriously, I want to eat your entire menu. ((Drool))

@JenniferWay13:  I think everything sounds incredibly tasty, but am an adventurous eater.  I agree with the previous poster who mentioned that the apps are seafood heavy, which, sounds heavenly, but a lot of people aren’t seafood people (not to mention allergies).  I’d just throw in something more universally appealing into the apps, like beef or chicken.

Sounds amazing and I want to eat all of it right now, but agree with PPs that you should have one or two non-seafood apps (other than the fruit).

This looks amazing. 

I think that you’ve done enough for potential vegetarians: fruit at cocktail hour, then rice/peas, cabbage, carrots, johnny cakes, salad and greens?! 

As long as about half of those are cooked without meat products, you’ve done a lot more for vegetarian guests than most!

I would switch to have at least one non seafood app, and streamline the mains. You don’t need 2 kinds of chicken and 2 kinds of tilapia. Too much similarity. Go with 3 mains and don’t repeat any of the proteins. Streamline the desserts, too. It’s fine to have a lot of choices but between donut favors, s’mores, ice cream, and multiple kinds of cake, it seems a little disjointed and overdone.

🙁 I really really wish i was having Jamaican food at mine. I dont think my caterers will do it though. 

You have a lot of Jerk there. Im guessing its a favourite of yours, but you also got things to balance it out so I think its great. I cant tolerate how hot some jerk chicken is but Im sure a lot of people will love it.


There is NOTHING wrong with your menu it sounds great but imma throw some suggestions your way anyway. I dont know which part of the caribbean you are talking but anyway from a girl with Jamaican heritage. 

*curry coat 

*Coselaw (caribbean style … you know the sweet one, my American Fiance goes crazy for that) 

* Fritters/Patti

* calaloo/ Ackee and Saltfish (but this would be probably quite expensive)

* Brow stew


My American Fiancee loves these things and so do his family. He always wants me to cook my mums food and those members of his family who havent tried it and very keen to try it. And Caribbean food is just simply amazing, thats why it has world wide recognition.

If you have anyone who doesn’t like seafood or is allergic to seafood, then your appetizers really only leave the fruit platter. It’s a little restrictive in that sense. I know personally my mother is allergic, and I know plenty of people who don’t like fish/lobster. 

Dinner – both of your meat options are chicken. Is there an protein option that’s not chicken? 

I’ll second there’s not much for vegetarians if you have any – a fact I have to be conscious of in planning.
