Mac & Cheese!

These are few food items which are trending in any wedding food menu! Though all of these already exist in the market, you’re only starting to see them at weddings now.

What kind of new food presentation ideas are trending?

Wedding Food menu

Thick & Thin

Mini portions are really trending. I suppose this trend would never go out of style as it’s the most convenient way of having a floater – whether it is a snack, dessert, salad or chaat!

Munching

The idea behind serving small portions is – presentation doesn’t get spoiled, guests can taste more items and it is easy to eat on the move!

We’ve heard your brand specializes in starters! So two veg and non veg starters I must have on the menu if I’m getting married this season?

These Mini Tacos with Lime!

Two veg starters that you must keep on your wedding menu are Dahi Aam Papad Tikki and Mini Tacos! If its a winter wedding, you can also look at Makki ki roti topped with sarson ka saag and white butter, served with gudd.

Sushi with Salman Roe

For non-veg starters you can look at including delicacies like Shrimps with guacamole, Chicken satay. Again Sushi is doing very well – both as veg and non-veg starter on wedding menus!

Among western desserts we’re seeing a lot of demand for waffles, pan cakes, tarts and rumballs!

Then there are lots of innovative Indian desserts that are trending at weddings these days. Think of a kheer station (cold) with varieties like orange pulp kheer, rose kheer, cherry kheer, kesar kheer.

Others like matka kulfi, fried ice cream, pineapple halwa or jalebi topped with rabri are must have’s on your menu!

What’s the biggest mistake people make while choosing their caterer?

Wedding Food menu

Chicken Lovers

I think the biggest mistake is comparing the cost quoted by different caterers without knowing much about their work. Or just comparing the number of items being served with the cost quoted!

Wedding Food menu

Healthy & Tastyyy

Ideally your number of guests, venue & occasion should decide the number of starters, main course, and desserts. Just increasing the number of items without factoring in other things can lead to a disaster.

Say, for example, if we are offering our Royal Veg Menu for Rs. 2300 per person for 600 pax. Anyone could easily reduce this to 1800 per person and create a Difference of 3 Lakh Rupees in the food budget! But how does that happen?

All in a Queue

Usually the cost of cooking, presentation, good quality raw material is almost same for all carters. So the only way to give a lower quote is by compromising on things like quality of raw material, service staff quality, crockery, quality of outsourced chefs, number of live counters, quality/count/presentation of chaat etc.

This is something you need to understand carefully and then make your choices.

How different – easy or challenging is it to plan the food for a destination wedding?

Wedding Food menu

Straight from Punjab

Its is not difficult to plan the food for a destination wedding if you are doing it with a right! A perfect mix of different cuisines, including local ones is always a good choice.
