Wedding Meals: Smaller Can Be Better
When it comes to weddings, people usually ask two things: Is there an open bar? and What are they serving? You want your big day to be special, and your guests to have a great time. However, you’re not expected to provide a giant, 10-course dinner of hearty portioned meals. Smaller gourmet appetizers can make a bigger statement.
Nowadays, many couples are opting to have wedding caterers create numerous appetizers that are passed out throughout the entire reception instead a sit down dinner of chicken or fish. The current trend is to make small, bite-sized gourmet versions of a couple’s favorite meals in order to add a personal touch. Martha Stewart recently covered this new trend, praising the visual impact these delicious nibbles have.
If your first date was at an Italian restaurant, caterers can create a single Kobe beef meatball drizzled in truffle-infused tomato sauce or mini lasagna squares using quality ingredients. Do you and your future spouse have a tradition of donuts every Sunday morning? That can easily be incorporated as well. Mini donuts holes with your initials written in fondant would be adorable and delicious.
The chefs at The Culinary Studio have been in the business of wedding catering in Long Island and New York for more than 20 years and can create fun mini versions of your favorite eats for your wedding. While many have taken a cue from Martha and do these small bites for the entire reception, we can also make these bite-size morsels for just the cocktail hour. It’s your big day, and we’re here to make sure it’s delicious.
