Chic Eats | Food Theory Thursday

By

We were lucky to be able to create some BEAUTIFUL dishes for Utah Valley Bride's article on the latest and greatest catering trends.  These dishes are truly indicative of today's bride.  Whether you are hosting a rustic ranch wedding, a small backyard celebration, or a glam Great Gatsby style affair, people want their food to not only taste good, but be spectacular to look at.  These varying dishes are all geared toward different types of events, but, nonetheless, all are striking in presentation and will be sure to impress your guests!  We love adding special touches like artfully brushing the sauces atop the plate (as seen on the far right photo in the Caramelized Salmon with Fresh Mango Salsa, Fried Rice Noodles, and Balsamic Reduction), or serving drink in mason jars with burlap tied drink signage (as seen on the top middle photo in the Mason Jar Lemonade Trio of Fresh Mint and Lime, Strawberry and Vanilla, and Lavender and Ginger), and lastly the fun misting spray bottle for the appetizers (as seen in the far left photo in the Cumin and Tomato Dusted Shrimp with Grilled Lime and Poblano Mister).  Even adding paper straws and vintage style soda bottles (like in our Old Fashioned Style Creamsicle Ice Cream Soda) or building a dish vertically (like the Basil Encrusted Sea Scallop) can really take a dish up a notch.  We love that brides are looking for more from their catering than just a way to feed their guests.  They want scrumptious food, lots of variety, and creative presentation - and we LOVE it!  Thank you to Utah Valley Bride for letting us come up with some beautiful dishes for the magazine!  We loved being a part of it!  Happy planning everyone!
