- Wedding: May 2012
I am SO excited about our menu!! Here is a bit of a backstory, quickly…
I have been having a lot of issues. Money issues, groom issues (not cooperating) Bridesmaid or Best Man issues, just everything.
Well, I used to be a big restaurant girl… Its my passion. I have done everything in them. I used to be a chef (and wouldnt dare make my own food on my wedding day and ADD that stress!!!)
So, as you can imagine, I am picky about what food i wanted to serve to my guests!
At first we were going to go with a, for the lack of a better word, hole in the wall little italian place near us. Its a mom and pop place, and we figured we could give them some business, plus the food is pretty good. WELL – i wasnt too thrilled about this, but i was settling. The buffett was going to be about $2,300.00.
We are having 120 guests.
BUT, i was reallllllly hating that idea, AND we are having a dry reception so some things started to change. Instead of being at 5 pm. its now at 2. So i wanted Lunch food. Grazing food. Finger food.
SO, i called up my old chef and asked if he would help. I didnt want to abuse his friendship and ya know…. BUT, he said OF COURSE — Plus, i cooked at his wedding for him. So last night Fiance and I went to his house, and after MUCH deliberating….
Tell me what you think of this….
We are going to do 5 stations under the tent:
Kobe Beef Kabobs!
We will have a spread of Kobe Beef sliced, skewers in a Mason jar (like the centerpieces). Different peppers, onions, cheeses, pineapple, etc. As well as sauces and you will put together your own kabob!
Hot Food –
Pulled Pork sliders!
Big container of Pulled pork with ALL the trimmings!!
Buns, lettuce, onion, tomato, cheeses, veggies, sauces, etc…
Cold Food –
Fruit and Cheese!
Chef is going to make us a big display of all kinds of fruits, cheeses, breads, crackers, some fruit dips, etc.
Cold Food –
We will have 4 different kinds of sandwiches.
1. Chicken salad. pretty basic, for the non exploring person.
2. Turkey, lettuce, tomato, cheese
with various sauces to accompany.
3. Apply, Ham and Brie
THIS I AM EXCITED ABOUT!!
4. Smoked Salmon and cucumber.
A classic finger sandwich.
– ALL of these will be on various breads… Chibata, grain, french, white, asiago
Cold Food –
Sampler Table Basically!
-Asparagus wrapped in Prichutto (cant spell that. lol) with grape tomatoes around it
and balsamic reduction.
-Caprese Kabobs – Mozzarella ball, grape tomato, basil
-Vegg!! Basically just a huge display of all kinds of veggies, broccoli, carrots, celery, etc also with Pita bread and Hummus.
Then of course our favor for the guest is a candy buffet, so that station is available, including our wedding cake!!!
Sound good?!?! 🙂
OHHH and the kicker — THIS is all going to FOR SURE feed well over 120 people… and its all for around $750!!! But i will tip him, and what not, plus, I have to buy drinks and jazz. BUT HOT DIGGITY DOG!!!!
