Our team of Los Angeles wedding caterers helped a couple turn their favorite dish into a crowd pleasing finger food.
What better place to tie the knot than on an island surrounded by yachts! On a lovely summer day in August, Jimmy and Erin did just that. With sand between their toes and a cool breeze coming off the surf the couple shared their vows with friends and family on the island of Lido Isle in the Newport Beach area. Eco Caters, our Los Angeles wedding catering branch was on sight to help rain in their pacific coast wedding.
When Jimmy and Erin came down to visit our Los Angeles wedding catering office to do a food tasting with us, they fell in love with our chef’s Muffuletta sandwich. (A traditional style muffuletta sandwich consists of a muffuletta loaf split horizontally and covered with layers of marinated olive salad, capicola, salami, pepperoni, ham, Swiss cheese and provolone.) Even though the couple had already decided on their dinner menu, they just had to find a way to put these sandwiches on their menu. So, our team of Los Angeles caterers came up with a clever way to server them as appetizer-sized sandwiches for guests to eat during cocktail hour. They were a big hit! As a Los Angeles wedding caterer these are the types of creative solutions we love solving for our clients.
For the main course, our Los Angeles wedding catering team worked with the couple and helped them decide on a buffet. Serving a wedding buffet is a great way to save on wedding costs while also making sure your guests get exactly what they want to eat. And the food is just as good! We served up a nice grilled organic Hanger steak with fresh herbs and grilled shallots, our special Mojo Shrimp Skewers with chopped pineapple and chives on a bed of angel hair pasta, Wild Mushroom Quinoa (which has been a very popular summer menu item), and an assortment of grilled Farmers Market vegetables.
Thanks again to Jimmy and Erin for making Eco Caters your choice as your Los Angeles wedding caterer! We want to wish you the very best. Cheers!
