Some of the most memorable meals we experience are the ones whose tangs and sensory pleasures stay with us sometimes years after tasting them. They might not necessarily be fine dining affairs for special occasions, but rather those visceral meals shared with family and friends, gathered around the dining room table, over old favorite recipes, wine and time honored rituals. We love the idea of weaving these meaningful dishes or flavors into your wedding menu, forever linking the food and memories. Celebrate these associations and create a menu that reflects your own personal food journey of childhood favorites, and amazing shared meals, that feel meaningful to you and your partner.
