I am going in for my tasting on Saturday and all of a sudden I am second guessing my menu big time. My venue has an in-house caterer so if we don’t like the selections we can choose another host of options and pay a $30/pp fee for a “re-tasting”.
As a guest, how would you react to being served:
Passed Hors D’oeuvres
1. Crab Cakes (w/lime yogurt for dipping)
2. Sliced Cucumber with herb cream cheese (on a water cracker)
3. Tortellini Skewer
1. Roasted Apple and Cranberry Salad (includes organic greens, pecans and champagne-orange vinaigrette)
2. Jack Daniels Roasted Beef
3. Oven-Roasted Chicken w/bacon and almonds (comes with a cinnamon stick)
4. Garlic Mashed Potatoes
5. Haricot Verts Amandine
Cake (stawberry with cream cheese filling)
Does this #1 sound like enough food and #2 sound like a meal that you would enjoy?

I’m not a picky eater so it sounds fine to me. =)

I’m a very, very picky eater. So take what I say with a grain of salt. None of the hors D’oeuvres I’d eat, maybe the third one if I had a better description or I saw it in person
With the actual food I’d probably eat everything, except for #5; because I have no idea what that is.
Also, the salad I’m a bit skeptical on, but I’d probably give it a nibble.
The only advice I have to give is maybe rethink the garlic mashed potatoes, although extrememly delicious I know I’d hate having garlic breath all night. Plus, I’m one of those mouths that hang on to garlic all night – even if I brush, chew gum, eat a bunch of other food. It just seems to stick. Maybe regular mashed potatoes or cheddar mashed potatoes?

@IowaDDS13: Oooh good point about the Garlic Mashed Potatoes! You are so right. I am one of those people who holds on to garlic breath too!
#5 is just a fancy description for french green beans lol

All sounds great. I love fruit in my salad so I’d definitely eat the salad! Everything else sounds great as well!
