What is your signature dish? I love to make Paella, but if I had to choose a dish, I would say it is our 7 Chicken – grilled chicken breast topped with asparagus tips, sun-dried tomatoes and citrus beurre blanc. We make it for a lot of weddings.
What advice do you have for brides who are trying decide between a sit-down vs. buffet style meal? I always suggest a buffet style meal as it lends itself to a more casual atmosphere, it also allows the dancing to get started sooner!
Do you offer menu tastings? We do offer menu tastings. I think it is the best part of the wedding planning process, except maybe the cake tasting…
Do you have a set menu or do you offer custom menus? We have both. Our set menus range in cuisines from all over the world and our custom menus give us the opportunity to capture the exact ideas a bride and groom have in mind.
What advice do you have to offer brides and grooms? When dealing with your wedding vendors make sure everything is in writing so there are no surprises on your wedding day. If you are expecting a certain service, make sure it is in the contract so there are no disappointments. All of your vendors want to give you the perfect day so let them!
