Wedding Catering Ideas
The traditional wedding catering style, plated menus normally consist of entree, mains and dessert served alternative drop by the waitstaff. The Cuisine on Cue plated menu features a variety of different options, from slow cooked pork belly, muscat grape, fennel, pear and chives to grilled darling downs eye fillet served with Jerusalem artichoke puree, celeriac gratin, broccolini and muscat jus.
The more social option, share plates are a great way to encourage guests to interact with each other and work as an excellent ice breaker. While the food still emanates the elegance and style one would expect at an engagement party or wedding, it also adds a little rustic energy into the mix. Guests are invited into a fun, social experience that wouldn’t normally occur during a plated dinner.
A cocktail-style wedding is great for the more casual wedding, guests are treated to a number of different roaming dishes throughout the evening. Options can vary widely, but popular dishes are Mooloolaba king prawn and capers served with lime segments and soda bread, and pickled pork, butternut pumpkin puree, marmalade and walnut.
