Courtney & Travis’s wedding was pretty awesome. So awesome that we wish we were guests at it. We’ll take being hired as their caterer & working it as a close second. Beautiful venue, delicious menu, cocktail party vibe, great vendors (All About Events handled the rentals and Jonathan with Blue Photo, took these rad pics) and a very cool bride & groom. Did we mentioned we love Flying Caballos Ranch in San Luis Obispo?
First things first. Courtney & Travis wanted their guests to enjoy themselves as soon as they arrived. As in before the ceremony. Champagne and craft beer were available, as well as a beautiful spread of cheeses, tapenades, hummus, artisan breads & local fruits prepared by our creative chefs.
Following their lovely San Luis Obispo wedding, we catered appetizers that featured seasonal and local ingredients. Think figs, proscuitto & goat cheese, and some classic stuffed mushrooms with local sausage, gorgonzola & fresh herbs. And if you love olives, our tapenade with local kalamatas, fresh herbs, garlic, anchovies, lemon, chili flakes & olive oil is not to be missed.
Good, because now it’s time for dinner. They chose a stations-style service with cedar-plank salmon with olive tapenade & lemon zest and oak-grilled tri tip with fresh chimichurri sauce as their entrees. Then there was a salad station: baby arugula, pepparanada, toasted almonds, feta and roasted red pepper vinaigrette or one of our classics: organic field greens, apples, gorgonzola, candied pecans and pomegranate vinaigrette.
This menu was all about fresh flavors & beautiful presentation.
To finish it off, guests enjoyed sautéed brussel sprouts, local farmers market vegetables and mac & cheese with gruyere, pancetta & butternut squash. Delish!
Congrats & thanks for using Pacific Harvest Catering!
