>The latest trend in weddings and dinner parties are Family style entrees. It incorporates a more casual tone rather than dinners that come plated to each guest. The idea of passing around serving dishes and helping one’s self is meant to set the mood of family dinners. I think it’s a fantastic idea and I have some pointers on how you can make your family style wedding dinner a hit!
>It is important to choose menu items that are hardy and will keep their form. Flaky fish fillets are too difficult to serve from a platter. The fish will break apart, leaving a mess for the next guest. Another item I would not suggest is soup.
>Foods that are great for Family Style Dinners:
>* Italian food: Eggplant Parmagiana, Chicken Picatta, Spaghetti with Meatballs, and Lasagna.
>* Indian food: Curry Chicken, Chicken Masala and traditional side dishes with Nan Bread.
>* Chicken Dishes, Beef/Steak, Pork dishes.
>*Fish/Seafood: Shrimp Scampi, Paella, Salmon Wellingtons, Lobster Thermadore.
>Cupcakes make a great family style alternative to cakes. Cupcakes are the newest trend in Wedding desserts and can be enjoyed by everyone!In The News, Uncategorized, Weddings
