Portion control: Getting the right wedding food balance

Portion control: Getting the right wedding food balance

Although classic English literature has illustrated the glories of great big feasts, often associated with the wealthy and important, the truth is our tastes have changed, with modern eaters certainly opting for quality over quantity. This has certainly been seen throughout our time as wedding caterers with brides and grooms wanting to impress the taste bud rather than put guests into a food coma.

‘People used to order tables upon tables of food for weddings, being borderline obsessed with ensuring everyone was full to the brim and unable to move’.

‘Nowadays things are very different. People want class and sophistication as well as doing all they can to avoid waste. Not only is food waste unethical but it is also costly for the couple’ says one the  Maharaja chefs.

Taster menus

One way to ensure no food goes to waste is by mocking up taster menus, ensuring that you plan your wedding food way in advance. At Maharaja we are strong believers in strategic planning, going above and beyond to meet our customers’ dreams as well as their budget. By mocking up meals per head in the planning stages we give our couples options, seeing that they have the full wedding guest experience before their actual guests.
