A wedding is one of the most important occasions in a person's life. More than a union of two individuals, weddings join families, friends, and even communities, and they mark major personal transitions. I take whatever time is necessary to meet with my wedding clients and get to know them. I listen to their requests and discuss what they envision for their receptions.
How do you personalize the weddings and events you cater?
During the initial consultation, I discuss with my clients what their goals are for their parties, bringing my considerable experience to the table to help formulate menus that meet their needs. I particularly like to encourage the brides and grooms I work with to incorporate dishes that reflect their cultural heritage. Family members are usually delighted to rediscover the flavors of their childhood, and the newlyweds are able to carry on traditions or create new ones with menus that incorporate such foods. For instance, we have included Persian, South African, Polish, Russian, Chinese, Scottish, and even Scandinavian elements that married beautifully with "Nuevo Texas" cuisine. Some clients have requested that we use some of their family recipes when designing a menu. We love that.
Do you provide wedding cakes?
We do prepare lovely desserts, but refer our wedding clients to bakers who specialize in wedding cakes.
Can you recommend a venue for our reception?
Yes, I am familiar with most local venues, as well as some unusual ones off the beaten path.
