i think we decided on our dinner menu, but i wanted to see what everyone thought. we’re getting married oct 1st, at a kids camp, so we’re going for a ‘rustic elegance’ with some fall influence=) our dinner buffet menu right now is as follows:
salad (plated at seats)
assorted bead rolls (at tables)
sweet potatoes with canberries
corn on the cob
pork loin with apple stuffing
chicken bouillbaisse (boneless chicken cooked in a savory tomato, white wine, olive oil & herb sauce)
goat stew (this is a must, it is for FI’s family, it’s traditional food for his family)
nigerian jollof rice
does this look ok? would you be happy with these options? suggestions? thanks!!

Honestly, I’d be a little weirded out by the goat stew. 🙂 Also, I’m not sure how well corn on the cob works for a wedding. It tends to be a bit messy. Everything else sounds delicious!

secretly (well, not quite secretly anymore
), the goat creeps me out, too! but, it is a food commonly served at celebrations in Fiance culture. we are having a very multicultural wedding, so our food represents this as well. i figure as a stew, it’s not as meaty to look at, so hopefully it won’t be a big deal for people who haven’t been served goat before.
as for the corn on the cob, we were thinking of having them halve the ears of corn, so it’s not as messy to eat. still on the fence about it thought. if we had potatoes, i’d forgo it, but since i don’t eat sweet potatoes, i kind of want corn. i love starchy foods WAY too much!

I’m with you on the starchy foods. So delicious! I think halving the ears of corn is a good plan.

Is your fiance South American? I love goat. I know it’s not normally eaten in the States but it’s not a really weird animal to eat, and it is soooo good when cooked well.
I think your menu looks great!

Looks delicious to me. I hope to find chicken boulliabasse somewhere – shellfish makes me ill, so I’ve never had it.

yay! i’m glad you like it. Fiance is allergic to shellfish, so no shellfish for us either=)

Sounds good, but the corn on the cob does sound iffy to me. If I were a guest at a wedding, I probably wouldn’t eat it for fear of it being stuck in my teeth of something. Maybe you can have corn off the cob?

When cooked properly, goat is quite good! It resembles beef a bit.
Men looks good, but I agree with SoupyCat that corn on the cob could be a disaster.

sounds like the corn could be a bad thing! it will be the end of corn season for us, & i love fresh corn! i figured if the ears were halved it wouldn’t be as messy for people to eat or they would just use their forks (you know how you twist with the fork to take it off if you want to eat it with a fork?) loose corn just isn’t the same for me. we are using all local, organic foods, even our meat is from local farms=) maybe i should do a corn poll…
