Happy New Year! As we are now nearly half way through January I think I can probably stop saying Happy New Year but it doesn’t seem five minutes since we were all planning for Christmas – where does the time go! Here at The Rustic Caterer we’ve had a rush of Wedding Catering enquiries, I think there must have been a few proposals over Christmas. Congratulations to anyone planning the big day and we are always happy to be a part of the festivities. Wedding food can seem a bit daunting to begin with – will Great Aunt Mildred like the same thing as my fiances five year old cousin? – who knows, which is why a rustic style buffet works for everyone, so we’ve been experimenting with a few recipe ideas for our buffet menus.
Pesto has always been a favourite here but we’ve tried a few different varieties and a stand out winner was the Sun-dried tomato pesto, which we smothered on to Roasted Red Peppers and rolled up and they were totally delicious – also vegan to which fits in nicely with the Veganuary theme currently running through the month.
Not vegan though but delicious and vibrant all the same are these lovely asparagus spears which have been seared in a little olive oil and rock salted and then wrapped in smoked salmon and tied with chives.
I think these might be appearing on our Wedding Buffet menu this year – not this batch though they have all gone in the name of research!
Time for some more research I think……………………..what to try next?
