I’m looking into my catering options and think i would like to do something unique! My Fiance is from Serbia and I am from the U.S. so I think I want to do half serbian half….something unique! for a buffet! (afternoon wedding).
What kinds of foods have you served/are planning to serve that are untraditional or unique? Maybe they will inspire me:)

BBQ. I don’t think that’s traditional (at least in northern CA where I’m from). I’ve never been to a wedding that had BBQ.

Actually… most likely we wont because it would be pretty expensive the way we would have to do it… but if we could, I would have done it in a heartbeat! I am still planning it in hopes we find a way though. lol

We had a nice mix of Chinese food and more American food. I substituted almost everything on my caterer’s Asian Station menu because it was so “americanized” Chinese food. My caterers were cool enough to not blink a eye at my more traditional recipes.
We also had Buffalo wings as the appetizer as a nod to my husband’s hometown and where we met!

Our vegetarian entree/food station is something I’d never heard of – it’s mushroom-filled beggar’s purse pasta in a carrot/white wine reduction. I tried it at the tasting and it was AMAZING. Really unique. I know it sounds like it might not be that good, but it really was. (I’m vegetarian, so it was important to me that the veggie option be GOOD.)

we’re having…. goat. i have accepted that it is a cultural difference & totally normal for FI’s family, but it’s still icky to me! but, we embrace both our cultures and they will be represented in our buffet- even if it means one of meat options is goat=)
the one thing i REALLY want, as far as the food goes, is a s’mores station! and it WILL happen, no matter what it takes! we’re getting married at a camp, it only seems right=)

We’re just doing traditional food, unfortunately.
I would have LOVED to do Ethiopian cuisine, there’s a local Ethiopian restaurant (which also happens to be my all-time favorite restaurant) that has catering available.
But fiance’s side of the family, especially his mom’s side, are not very adventurous when it comes to food. They would either starve or end up ordering pizza.

We’re having BBQ chicken and ribs catered, but I’ll also be serving Laotian sides… sticky rice, spicy papaya salad, and roasted tomato hot sauce.

You know, if I wasnt worried about my guests looking down on the idea, i think it would be fun to have a pizza buffet! I could hire those pple who come in trucks and set up a grill outside and custom make pizzas…like pizza catering 😀 I wonder if that is unheard of…
