Summer weddings, the deep joy of fabulous ingredients (hello asparagus, samphire, baby peas, broad beans, strawberries!)
With summer being the most popular time of year to get married, it is important to choose an inviting menu which compliments the season. Whether you’re planning on a beach or barnyard wedding, make the most out of the delectable in-season food on offer.
Our summer wedding menu inspiration is full of ingredients that are fresh and bursting with flavour.
Catering for a large group of people – all with varying needs – is no easy task and it becomes even more difficult when those people are wedding guests!! When the British sun makes an appearance, we like to keep our menus light, refreshing and with food that shouts FLAVOUR, here is K’s fave summer menu (well, one of them!):
Griddled asparagus, rocket & quails egg salad with crispy pancetta, shavings of parmesan & lemon oil dressing
Poached salmon & hollandaise with buttery (always buttery!) Jersey Royals & a simple salad of baby broad beans, sugars snaps & garden peas with mint & chives. Heaven on a plate!
Strawberry Eton mess drizzled with berry coulis & garnished with beautiful edible flowers.
Summer food is also sharing food…It’s trestle tables under a tree, it’s rustic wooden boards, it’s pots of wobbly aioli, baskets of breads, dishes of olives. It’s…
Bruschettas with the ripest plum tomatoes & garlicky pesto
The best fennel salami with sour dough breads & grassy green olive oil or a quivering baked camembert with fig relish
Follow it up with a simple board of roasted meat (our boneless chicken stuffed with thyme, lemon zest & garlic, takes some beating for summer eating…Crispy skin anyone?!)
Squidgy chocolate brownies, huge cloud meringues (thank you Ottolenghi) shortbreads, berries, cream, coulis, chocolate sauce...build your own dessert! Be it a pavlova, the divine combo of dark chocolate brownie & raspberries or strange folk who just want fruit..it’s all there!’
At Kemp and Kemp we know you want food that makes even the fussiest of guests say “WOW”, which is why we work with you to ensure the menu you choose is sheer perfection.
