Devon Autumn Wedding Catering
Autumn is a great time to have a wedding, the sun is often still shining into the evening, the trees are starting to change for picture perfect backdrops and some great produce comes into season for hearty autumnal fayre, Wedding catering
at it's best!
As an introduction to your wedding mean starters should be stunning in both taste and look. Having an autumnal wedding means that you have a huge choice of bold and colourful produce to play with. Consider a game starter with a blackberry inspired sauce, soups this time of year can be made from beetroot or carrot and have strong colours which look incredible served in small white bowls with rustic bread or a scattering of cheese.
As it is autumn you can choose to have your main as a hearty stew or filled pie if you want to, these can look and taste delicious when created by excellent caterers like Devon Catering. You can also of course serve chicken, salmon or beef and choose to inspire your sides from seasonal produce, roasted butternut squash and other seasonal veg will make your main course sing. Including things like chestnuts, pine nuts or unusual mushrooms can really add an autumnal feel to your wedding breakfast.
Autumn is a great time to incorporate seasonal fruits like blackberries and apples into your final course. You could try individual fruit crumbles, these would smell and look incredible when presented and served with a jug of custard for the table. Apple pie could also work really well as a dessert as could traditional English fools made from raspberries, blackberries or for something a little different try gooseberries. Salted Caramel is also a very popular flavour at the moment and this would work well with a variety of autumnal flavours.
The trend for having a sweetie table is now making way for the dessert table from which your guests can pick and choose from a selection of delicious desserts. Autumn is a perfect time to have this table as it can be filled with mini fruit pies and tarts in assorted shapes and fillings which will look and taste spectacular. You could also incorporate other traditional autumnal foods like miniature toffee apples for each guest or even a sweet pumpkin pie? Exchanging a sweet dessert in favour of cheese and crackers could be quite special this time of year if you include a variety of chutneys and pickles to liven up the plates.
Well it wouldn’t be a party in Devon without Cider and in autumn you can really play around with the apple flavours to create either sparkling apple flavoured cocktails or warmed apple drinks flavoured with spices.
Individual crackers served with cheese and chutney, filled small mushrooms, tiny individual pies and flans, glazed mini sausages on sticks or tiny shot glasses filled with bright autumnal soups are all great little mini tastes of what autumn can offer you as an appetizer.
