the order of the day

Olivia & William – what dream this day was! The Lake District pulled out all the stops and gave you a glorious sunny day!

The day started with this delicious selection of canapés..

  • Peking duck Pancakes with Plum Sauce
  • Minted Pea, Feta & Asparagus Tarts
  • Mozzarella Arancini with Basil Pesto
  • Mini Yorkshire Puddings with Roast Beef & Horseradish

Olivia & William chose the following menu which worked so well! A hearty main followed by a delicious pud!

Menu

Ham Hock Terrine, Mixed Leaves, Hawkshead Piccalilli
or
Wild Mushroom & Truffle Pate, Onion Marmalade & Mixed Leaves – Vegetarian Option
Baskets of Home-made Breads 

Chicken Fillet Stuffed with Mozzarella, Sun Blush tomatoes & Basil
Wrapped in Prosciutto
Roasted Vegetables and Baby New Potatoes
Rich Chicken Jus 
or
Char Grilled Vegetable Stack with Mozzarella with a Tomato & Basil Sauce – Vegetarian Option
Roasted Vegetables and Baby New Potatoes
 
Summer Berry Meringue Roulade
Raspberry Coulis

This menu worked really well as everyone had the same apart from the vegan/vegetarian guests! We always get asked about offering a choice and we always say if you give too much choice people usually become fussier.

Offering a choice creates a lot more admin for you as a couple and does increase the price of the menu due to having to get extra chefs in to help plate and serve the meal!

On the days guests usually forget what they’ve ordered so it does slow service down and can take a while… if you want to offer a choice a top tip would be to put the menu choices on the back on their name card so there is no confusion on the day!
