Food has always been a quintessential element of any social gathering. From family dinners to weddings and corporate events, food continues to be a crucial ingredient in the recipe for a successful event. Here at Madera Kitchen we pride ourselves on the delicious meals that wedding guests enjoy while celebrating their beloved bride and groom.
Yet, how do you create a wedding menu everyone at your wedding will love? We have some tips to help you with this – so read on and find out more:
- Pick the classic foods that satisfy everyone. There’s just no way you can go wrong with excellently cooked chicken or a deliciously tender beef steak. There’s no way you can go wrong with mashed potatoes and pumpkin pies. There’s no way you can go wrong with childhood favorites either: mac and cheese, pizza, burgers, and even doughnuts have become increasingly popular at weddings. So why not include them in your wedding menu, since they’re so likely to satisfy all of your wedding guests?
- Go beyond the rules. You don’t have to serve a seated dinner to call it a wedding. For instance, if you want to create an elegant event and not spend a fortune on food, why not bring a wine tasting specialist into your wedding day and serve mini-foods that go with the wines that are tasted? This way, everyone will have a variety of options to choose from, so it’s highly probable that they will like at least one of the foods.
- Don’t forget about the vegetarian menu. More and more people are eating vegetarian foods – so it’s quite important to make sure your vegetarian guests have a menu option as well. You can ask them to jot this down on your wedding RSVPs if you plan on having a seated dinner, or you can simply include vegetarian options in your wedding menu if you plan on serving hors d’oeuvres, a family-style dinner, or simply a classic buffet.
- Be original. Chicken is amazing, but how about chicken spiced with ingredients inspired by the Caribbean cuisine? Fish is amazing, but how about grilled cod instead of the salmon everyone’s used to? There’s always a more special alternative for you to choose from – go for that and you won’t regret it.
At the end of the day, what matters most is that your food is deliciously cooked, beautifully presented, and made with ingredients that are fresh and natural. Nothing beats good taste, no matter what’s on the menu! Inquire today on how Madera Kitchen can help create the wedding menu of your dreams!
