My Wedding menu

Posted on 08 Feb 2011 at 04:07

In April 2012 I am getting Married to my Fiancee Rhiain. It is early days but we have alot to organise and the food is a massive part to me.

Although I am a chef and I cook and create dishes/menus every day I have no idea what to have for the meal. Me and Rhiain have had many discussions and keep coming up blank, so I decided to put it on here to see if people could help.

I am always inclined to go for something a little different but we have to please the other 70 people too. So I welcome all your ideas and themes ensuring they are seasonal.My good friend Adam Bateman twitter name @chefkhymia (AKA Craig Blackman) is doing the cooking.

Please add any comments below.

Thanks for your help..........

    Hi Paul, I too am a chef, my sister has asked me to come up with something for her wedding. We are going for picnic baskets with dressed crab, cheese, sourdough, potted duck, terrines etc

    I actually quite like the idea of a genuine British theme for the food, maybe a pub meal with a Foster twist!

  • The 'Real' Wedding Breakfast

    As you know it is called the 'Wedding Breakfast' because breakfast is the first meal of the day and this is the first meal of your married life together so why not take the 'breakfast' part literally and theme the courses around things you might eat at breakfast eg:- first course - eggs florentine - second course - haddock, poached egg, black pudding - main - sausages/bacon desserts - yoghurt, granola, banana, pastries, croissants. The dishes dont need to be in there normal breakfast state I just mean that you could create dishes playing on the ingredients - twists.......everyone loves breakfast i think it would work well for a large group all of which might not be as food orientated as you or I.

    Hiya mate, how about, considering the time of year, capturing a bit of an easter within the menu? So for Desert maybe Trio of Chocolate or a Chocolate fondant with Orange sorbet/ice cream? Urm, as its April, main could be based around lamb cutlets? Its a good time for Asparagus too, so possible a creamy asparagus to start or fried quail eggs with asparagus stalks on a bed of some form of lettuce? Just putting it out there?!
