Since we've decided to go with a buffet we were told to pick out 1 salad, 3 entrees and 3 sides from their menu to taste test. Ultimately we will settle on 1 salad, 2 entrees and 2 sides for the buffet. We both looked at the menu online last night and have decided we want to taste the following:
PEAR & WALNUT SALAD WITH
Field greens tossed with sweet pears, toasted
walnuts, gorgonzola cheese and our cranberry
**I think this will be a nice refreshing salad for an evening May wedding
BEEF MEDALLIONS WITH SHALLOT –
Tender beef medallions presented atop a bed of
caramelized onions, tomatoes and arugula.
Drizzled with a delicious shallot –brandy sauce
PECAN CRUSTED CHICKEN
Tender breast of chicken rolled in spicy pecans,
and then drizzled with a light cream sauce
**We tried this at their open house tasting and both really liked it
ORECCHIETTE PASTA WITH
SCALLOPS & SHRIMP
Open faced seashell pasta tossedwith jumbo sea
scallops and shrimp in a creamy lobster based sauce
Green Beans with Caramelized Onions &
Sharp White Cheddar & Gruyere
Macaroni & Cheese
Parmesan Smashed Potatoes
Between now and the tasting I've given Kristian the task of pricing out what it would cost for us to supply our own alcohol for the wedding. This way we'll have some numbers for comparison when we go for the tasting and can decide if we want the caterer to supply the alcohol or not.
