Here is a look at what is new and hot in Wedding Catering this Wedding Season.
Fresh is THE word for Wedding Catering this year. Bright colours, light sauces and healthy food people feel good about eating. The great thing about this shift in catering is that utilizing fresh, local, organic and in-season food is not only good for the guests, but good for the local economy!
This is not a new trend, but it is becoming more mainstream and accessible. In its most basic definition, "Molecular Gastronomy" is the use of Chemistry and Physics to prepare food. Molecular Gastronomists are very precise about their measurements and use chemicals such as soy lecithin and sodium alginate and tools such as scales and syringes to change the molecular state of food while stimulating the five recognized "basic" tastes - sweet, salt, sour, bitter, umami.
