How to experiment with your wedding cuisine
With ample inventions in wedding cuisines, make sure your wedding is catered to perfection
Traditional Indian weddings often serve vegetarian food, as Rajgarhia states, “Hindu wedding rites are performed as per the Vedas. Moreover, nonvegetarian food is considered tamasicin nature and therefore, avoided on the day of the wedding.” That being said, many couples are making the shift towards an all-inclusive, diverse menu that sometimes includes non-vegetarian food.
Rohera and Advani dish out on the current trends: “Due to lower costs, brunches have become popular at daytime ceremonies. Wedding menus curated or prepared by celebrity chefs have become another big draw. DIY counters draw in people, as they allow guests to mingle and cook the dish of their choice.”
Rohera and Advani suggest, “Get creative with your cuisine and presentation; think pani puri shots, bite-sized kathirolls in sushi bowls, bhel puri in martini glasses, and tandoori chicken in kulhads.”
The duo recommends, “Finalise the menu well in advance. Do not experiment with cuisines if the caterer has no experience preparing it. Select a few basic dishes that will appeal to a larger crowd.”
