Bowl food is rising in popularity and we expect it to take centre stage at many weddings this summer. Harry and Meghan chose a taster bowl menu for the royal wedding reception in May.
What is a taster bowl menu?
It’s exactly what it sounds like – tasty bowls of your favourite foods, distributed to guests in small but perfectly formed portions. It’s a lot less formal than a traditional sit-down wedding breakfast, allowing your guests to mingle while they munch. It’s also ideal for spaces that are a bit too small to accommodate tables and chairs. A taster bowl menu is also a much heartier alternative to a buffet – essential if you’ve got the Champagne or prosecco flowing – and allows your guests to sample a selection of delicious dishes.
Our invite to Harry and Meghan’s wedding reception was unfortunately lost in the post we assume… but we did find out what the options were for their taster bowl menu. Their lucky guests enjoyed:
- Fricassee of Free Range Chicken with Morel Mushrooms and Young Leeks
- Pea and Mint Risotto with Pea Shoots, Truffle Oil and Parmesan Crisps
- Ten Hour Slow Roasted Windsor Pork Belly with Apple Compote and Crackling
Does this sound like something that might tickle your guest’s fancy? Get in touch with our team to discuss your very own unique taster bowl menu.
