I love reading other people’s menus so I thought I would share our menu with you now that we have sorted it. 🙂
We went for the tastings about 2 weeks ago now and I’m still drooling over what we ate!
Our venue is a restaurant in the middle of the countryside, we mostly chose it because of the location, food and real ale!
Mini steak burger
Prosciutto, mozarella & rocket rolls
Arancini, tomato, mozarella & risotto balls.
White onion & cider soup, cheddar cheese toasts (this is their signature dish, the only item that remains from their opening on the menu)
Butternut squash risotto, crispy sage, spicy pumpkin seeds
Ham hock, smoked chicken & parsley terrine, apple sauce, watercress, crostinis
Pan-fried seabass fillets, bombay potatoes with spinach, cauliflower bhaji, lime & coriander yoghurt tzatziki
Beef bourgignon, creamy mash, roasted root vegetables
Roast leg of lamb, garlic & rosemary potato cake, creamed spinach, slow roasted cherry tomatoes, red wine jus
Roast banana choux bun, creme patisserie, banana ice cream, toffee sauce
Baked chocolate cheesecake, salted caramel ice cream
Strawberry & vanilla panna cotta, seasonal berry compote
Late Night Snack
Bacon baps & fries
Chicken wings with BBQ & blue cheese dips
All vegetarians will be catered for seperately. This was something I was super happy with, as it meant we could offer more variety.
We’ve gone for a menu that reflects our personal taste, rather than the generic! For the starters we have two veggie options as one night when we were dining there my FI had the risotto as his main course and it was amazing! We asked them if we could have it as a smaller portion for a starter and they were more than happy to accomodate 🙂
When it came to the mains we were all set to choose one of the two red meat dishes, plus a chicken, but these two dishes were just so tasty that the chicken was bland in comparison- even though it was moist and perfectly cooked! The lamb was cooked to perfection and every single component of the dish was super flavoursome, my FI who doesn’t usually favour meat dishes was torn between this and the fish. The beef is an unusual choice for a summer wedding but I think it will work, we are in the UK afternall not SoCal! I wasn’t served as a stew, it was a cut of slow braised beef that literally fell apart, yum! The fish dish is pretty unusual but it looked and smelled amazing very summery. I didn’t try any as I don’t eat fish but all 3 who tried it said “wow”!
I’m also aware that we have 2 choices with mozarella and 2 with risotto, but on the whole I think it is fairly balanced and gave us the best options out of the choices we had!
I love food, even though I’m a fussy eater. I’m just super excited to share this with our friends and family 🙂
I wish I could add a poll with multiple options to see what you’d all pick! Silly new WeddingBee!
