Decision making dinners

Last night we welcomed a wonderful young couple to The PKA to sample the delicious menu for their wedding. Met at the door with a glass of wine, we then ran through their wedding day to make sure all the timings and food was as they desire!

Then it was onto the serious part of the evening – the tasting. For starter the bride and groom chose three options; a ham hock and Waldorf salad , a goats cheese puree with a caramelised onion tart tatin and sautéed pigeon, peas and pancetta crisp.

Next came the mains, and what a good choice they made. They settled down to braised rolled shin of beef with dauphinoise potatoes, pan fried bream with pea and broad bean risotto, and finally a spinach, sun dried tomato and ricotta Wellington with butter kale and celeriac purée.

Lastly came the desserts. Hopefully they weren’t full by this time as they again had three to taste; lemon custard tart, chocolate and macadamia nut brownie and mint chocolate mousse. This was all lovingly prepared by our sous chef Bevan.

Both bride and groom thoroughly enjoyed their tasting, and were so pleased with the food they decided to go with all the options which was great news for us. After discussing the evening food and bar options the couple headed home.

Tastings for weddings are a great way to sit down with the clients to find out exactly what they want for their special day and make sure we can make it happen.
