I got a good advice from this place on which item to taste. So I wish for your advice again please. I apologize that my English is not perfect ahead of the time. I am having a difficulty in choosing the veg option. Not many guest choose this, but my fiance is a veg and so it is very important. Sad to say he did not taste with me, he must work at that time. He is not a big help to choose, only saying “whatever is fine” and saying no preference.
The two choices are
- Coconut Curried Vegetable Risotto: Cashews, Toasted Coconut, Cilantro
- Wild Mushroom Ragout: Arugula, Parmesan Polenta, Crispy Onions, Truffle Oil
On the day of tasting I can only taste 1 veg choice. I pick the mushroom ragout to taste. Mushroom seem like fall to me, and it is a November wedding. In honesty, I was not over thrilled with it. For fairness, I was very full at the time I taste it. But the mushrooms seemed very vinegar to me. It had tomato that was acid and vinegar like. The polenta did not taste. I mention they have to much vinegar and they write it down. So they can adjust it but I am not thrilled with it. It tastes like veg food. I do not know how to say it, but some veg food does not remind that you are eating veg food. This was not like that. I know very much it is veg. I hope my meaning makes sense.
So, now I am stuck. Will I keep the thing I am not over thrilled with or go with the thing I never tasted.
The other is the Curried Vegetable Risotto. It must have cream in it? I think cream has a better, less “this is veg food” taste. But is it “fall” enough?
The meal has 3 courses, it goes:
1. Apple Salad: accompanied with Arugula, Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Spiced Pecans, Brown Butter Croutons, Smoked Blue Cheese, Sage Cider Vinaigrette
2. Curried Sweet Potato Soup: Toasted Coconut, Micro Cilantro
3. and then the main dish, which is either going to be Mushroom Ragout or Coconut Curried Vegetable Risotto.
Really I was in love with the curried sweet potato soup. It was very amazing, the best thing I taste the whole day.
Big problem is, I am not sure if Curried Sweet Potato Soup followed then by Vegetable Curry Risotto main dish is too much curry, too much coconut?
For meat eaters there is: Parmesan crusted chicken with asapragus and truffle oil mashed potatoes … and the other is beef tenderloin with triple cream au gratin potatoes and portabello mushrooms — same soup and salad for all guest.
So, what can I do? Change it or leave it as mushroom ragout? Thank you so much for help with my question.
