But luckily, cookie-cutter weddings with subpar food and anticlimactic courses are yesterday’s news. More couples have been going the artisanal, foodie route and turning the menu into the focal point of their big day. Therefore, we turned to three of New York’s hottest chefs to see what they're planning to dish out this wedding season. Who's hungry?
Food Network Chopped champion and caterer extraordinaire Elisabeth Weinberg, who runs Miss Elisabeth’s Catering in New York, has seen an influx of foodie couples coming to her for their big day.
“People who contact me are interested in the food being one of the most important parts of their event. Not only do they enjoy a great party and celebration, but they also enjoy a high-end, restaurant-quality meal,” says Weinberg, who sources most of her ingredients at the Union Square Greenmarket. Couples are asking for seasonal, organic, and local ingredients at their weddings, too. “I am designing menus based on what is available seasonally and locally, and based on the foods and dishes that the bride and groom really love,” she says.
