Fun Wedding Food – Build Your Own Burgers!

February 25, 2014

Increasingly, we have seen a demand for more casual and sociable food options at weddings and events.
Many couples are selecting food that they love and feel represents their personal style, over more formal or traditional choices.

We love to help our clients with their special requests, and seeing them and their guests enjoy and delight in their choices makes
us very happy! Last week, we catered for the fantastic wedding of Mark and Amy at the beautiful Heaton House Farm.
They wanted a delicious and fun menu for their guests to enjoy on their special day.

We served up a scrumptious array of canapés to get everyone warmed up –

Croute of sun dried tomato, caramelized red onion & mozzarella cheese
Fish and chips
Tiger prawn with pak choy, garlic and chilli
Peking duck pancakes with hoi sin sauce
Manchester Egg (a pickled egg coated in black pudding and sausage meat, and deep-fried until golden-brown)

This seemed to get everybody in the mood for more! We encouraged everyone to roll up their sleeves and enjoy some hearty
starter dishes, served on the slate or in bowls for guests to share.

Potato skins, with chicken and bbq sauce with Monterey Jack
Pork ribs with a sweet and sour sauce
Buffalo wings with a chilli sauce and blue cheese dressing
Battered tiger prawn with a smokey sauce
Courgette Fritters
Charcoal grilled sweetcorn

After this round, everybody was raring to go for the next course, a ‘build your own burger’. This was really fun and
everybody thoroughly enjoyed creating their burgers (and eating them of course!)

At this point there were a lot of full tummies, but somehow, as usual, everybody seemed just
about able to fit in some delicious desserts!
