Yesterday I explained how I catered a friend's wedding earlier this spring, and I offered up the five questions I think you should ask yourself before tackling a project like this. I should have added one more criteria: Are you good at math? Because catering takes a lot of it. Here's the first piece of math required — estimating and calculating how many bites per person you are going to need.
This week I'm showing you the big wedding reception I catered for friends earlier in the spring, and today I want to share the menu we finally landed on. The reception took place after dinnertime, and so the food was all small bites, with cake to follow. But I knew that a lot of people probably wouldn't eat much dinner beforehand, so I leaned towards the heavy side of appetizers. Want to see what we served, and how we planned it out?
