2017 is almost half over and we are seeing some amazing wedding catering trends! From super sophisticated to laid-back comfort food, we’ve got the top trending ideas.
Farm to Table
It’s all about eating locally and seasonally. The closer your food is served to where it was grown does make a difference. Think of it this way, does a January tomato from the grocery store taste anything like an August one from your local farmer’s market? Of course, not. So, when you plan your menu with your caterer, think about the seasonal foods that are available locally.
This is the latest incarnation of heavy hors d’oeuvres. The difference is that these are already plated and beautifully presented. Think two perfect dumplings in a pool of sauce or a mini grilled cheese perched on an espresso cup of tomato basil soup.
What makes this trendy is being completely committed to it. This isn’t about a random pasta bar, this is about everything being true to the cuisine. So, from cocktails to dessert, you conjure up the food of Provence or Ethiopia or some other culture that is personal to you and your relationship.
One of the reasons that Glatt Kosher Catering is trending is the perception that there is much more regulation in the sourcing and preparation of Kosher foods.
Kicked-up Comfort Food
Who doesn’t love comfort food? This is a wedding so why not kick it up a notch? Things like Artisan Mac & Cheese or Truffle Fries with a Black Angus Slider. If you are doing something with a country theme have a biscuit bar with whipped butter and bacon jam.
Your guests can work up a mighty appetite on the dance floor. That is why adorable little late night snacks are showing up everywhere. Whether you roll out the donut cart, have a trendy food truck at your send off, or pass warm cookies and milk shots on the dance floor, your guests will love this trend.
As in all things trendy, do not try to do them all. Pick one or two that work with your tastes and the style of your wedding and have fun with it.
