Glamorous Food - Difficult Circumstances

missclawdy | Feb 28, 2010 09:55 AM

I am not sure if this is the right Board to be on since it is not Home Cooking, but rather a Wedding Dinner I am catering for 150 people in September.

My "kitchen" will be a tent. I will have power and refrigeration, but only barbecues and Chafers for hot food.

Any ideas for food that can be interesting , delicious and stylishly presented will be very welcome. Dessert is not an issue, but passed hors d'oeuvre and a Buffet of several Stations are.

Right now I am thinking of one Station combining barbequed beef tenderloin and mashed potatoes with toppings, a Salad Station with the salads served in some kind of interesting glass
(not Martini though - too overdone), a Small Bites Station with things like Shrimp Shooters, Sloppy Joes on Black Pepper Biscuits, Grilled Lamb on a Baguette or Potato Raft with Roasted Chili Relish and an International Station - maybe Deviled Chicken, Macaroni Salad with Asiago Cheese and Cucumber Mustard Relish, a Paella or Korean Shortribs with a Green Onion Salad.

For hors d'oeuvre I am considering Duck Burgers, Chicken Nori Rolls, some variation on Sushi (fish being too problematic) but still want another two or three.

This is such a wonderful site to collect ideas. I am looking very forward to any replies.
