Eco Caters San Diego Catering Division Serves Organic Cuisine at Private Home Wedding in Del Mar
Although we had rough weather all week it cleared up and turned out to be a perfect day for this beautiful wedding in Del Mar. Eco Caters, a San Diego catering company, provided all organic food to the friends and family of the bride and groom on this unbelievable April evening. The ceremony was held in the back yard and then everyone moved to the front for a drink and some organic hors d’oeuvres. We started off with stationary hors d’oeuvres during the cocktail hour which included a Chef’s Choice Cheese Display with Market Fruit and Preserves (pictured above), Antipasto with Marinated Artichoke, Sweet Peppers with Arugula, Marinated Cherry Tomato with Mozzarella, and Mixed Olives and a mixed slider platter boasting Curry Chicken Salad with California Golden Raisins, Muffoletta with Olive Salad and Provolone (pictured above), and Grilled Eggplant with Tomato, Arugula, and Marjoram Aioli. During the cocktail hour the photographer was snapping photos of the guests and our food (all pictures above) which all came out very nice. They can be found at www.barnettphoto.com. After about 1 hour of mingling the guests moved back to the back yard where the set up had been transformed by the Eco Caters staff and ready for the dinner buffet. As guests sat down we brought them a plated salad which consisted of Organic Mixed Greens with Goat Cheese, Sliced Almonds, 9 Grain Croutons, Goji Berries, and Avocado Dressing. The heartfelt toasts ended as we opened up the buffet which people were very excited about. The chafers were nicely filled with Rosemary Marjoram Chicken Breast finished with a Wild Mushroom Sauce, Pan Seared Rockfish with Cali-Crystal Beurre Blanc, Wild Mushroom Quinoa and Grilled Farmers Market Vegetables. We also put out fresh baked organic french bread and honey whipped butter with dinner. All of the produce was bought from local organic farms, much of which came from Suzie’s Farm in San Diego. The seafood was sustainably caught by Catalina Offshore and the chicken organic free range from Northern California.
After dinner guests continued to mingle around enjoying each others company and some dessert with Eco Caters organic fair trade coffee and tea service. The dessert was a spread of different options made by the mother of the bride and friends. The bride and groom actually came out from the east coast and picked Eco Caters San Diego Catering division specifically because we serve organic cuisine. We could tell that they had a knack for organic food as well when we saw the organic vegetable and herb garden in the side yard. It is always great to serve fresh organic cuisine in a lovely setting to people who truly appreciate it. We look forward to more Del Mar catering events and weddings, especially the ones with a view of the ocean!
