If weddings symbolise the coming together of two families, then why should the food on offer be any different? In light of the theme on cross-cultural weddings, we explore delicacies that boast of a colourful heritage
Once upon a time, the cuisines on offer at a wedding were limited to Indian, Continental, Chinese and, perhaps, Thai or Mexican. Shares wedding planner Rupali Sheth, “Nowadays, however, the definition of exotic has changed immensely. Expect to find Vietnamese noodles or a Portuguese dessert on the menu, too. Regional palates are also coming into play—such as from a specific region of India.”
Comfort over pretences
Rather than the structured meals that generally get served at weddings, laidback is the on-trend ambience. Comfort food is making its presence felt through delicious burgers, hearty fries, bite-sized pizzas and more. Food trucks, a recent addition to the global food scene, are another feature seen at celebrations.
