So you have settled on a Mediterranean style wedding and now looking for the right food options to go with it? The Mediterranean region is expansive and covers a large geographical area.
Depending on your personal reasons for choosing a Mediterranean themed wedding, (perhaps its family heritage or you just love the cultural aspects of the region), you may opt to pick a single country for your wedding lunch menu.
This short article will introduce you to a selection of menus from three Mediterranean countries including Italian, Spanish, and Greek favourites.
Dazzle with a taste of Italy
A Mediterranean style wedding with an Italian-inspired menu is simple enough to pull off. With the assistance of an experienced caterer, all you have to do is pick the dishes and then leave the rest to them.
Serve your wedding guests an authentic Italian meal by choosing a three-course meal featuring Antipas Miso, Chicken Cacciatore or Braciole, and for pudding, a classic Amaretto Cheesecake or Tiramisu served in a Champagne flute.
All main meals are served with Tuscan rosemary roasted potatoes with Parmigiano shavings and a selection of fresh bread.
Take your guests on a Greek food odyssey
Start your wedding sit down meal with a serving of traditional Greek meze all accompanied by toasted pitta bread and olive oil dips. Choose from humous, Tzatziki, Olives, Feta, Stuffed Vine Leaves plus much more. For the main meal of your Mediterranean style wedding feast, you have the following option:
- Lamb Kleftiko, which is a slow cooked shank of lamb with red wine, garlic, cinnamon, root vegetables & oregano. It is served with a side of olive baked potatoes and baby aubergines and baskets of continental bread.
To top it all off, your guests can enjoy a traditional Greek lemon cake served with lime yogurt. As an option, the adventurous can try Baklava, which is a tasty, sugary pastry made of filo and contains nuts and honey to keep it all together.
Spanish dining will also add the icing to any Mediterranean style wedding. For more menu options from the Spanish collection visit Heriot’s International menu selections.
