I am back with more Foodie Wedding tips – hooray! I figured it may be fun to have this topic pop up throughout the year. Let’s pick back up with food, namely the buffet.
While a buffet doesn’t sound foodie-like, there is a way to do it. The rule: don’t go plain and be predictable. There are so many great foods around the world, choose a location or two and build your buffet off the best foods of that culture. And because it’s a buffet, picking two totally different types of food is acceptable and in my opinion, more fun. Let’s try it out with Spain and Italy, both familiar but still have yummy gourmet foods that I’m positive many have not tried before.
A quick reminder, always select items that don’t require immediate serving and can withstand sitting at room temperature or in a chafing dish if needed. Nothing is worse than mushy risotto, soggy bread and limp roasted veggies.
Cochinillo Asado – Roast Suckling Pig
Pulpo a la Gallega – Galician Octopus
Coca – a flat bread that can be savory or sweet
Crema Catalana – the classic dessert of Catalonia and very similar to creme brulee
Ossobuco alla Milanese
Spread of Prosciutto, Goat Cheese, Roasted Peppers and Sicilian Olives
Struffoli – deep fried balls of dough mixed with honey and other sweets
