Has designing your wedding day menu become extremely overwhelming due to trying to appease every guest and their dietary restriction(s)? Are individual food allergies are complicating otherwise simple menu decisions? Sometimes, when trying to consider specific needs, like Aunt Cathy’s gluten intolerance, uncle Joe’s vegan-ism and whatever cousin Sally’s latest diet fad choice is, there can just be too many of them to keep straight.
If there’s one thing you can count on for sure, it’s that, fortunately or unfortunately, dietary restrictions and specialty diets are an increasing facet of modern American life, and are surely here to stay!! And you’ll be happy to know that our chef and culinary coordinator would actually prefer it if your wedding guests spoke up to you about their dietary preferences when RSVPing to your affair. Being proactive about these sorts of requests is a plus because it allows the catering staff plenty of time to organize and prepare the requests, and in the end, it’s really no problem for us at all.
In the end, it’s fair to say that between many of the (quite common) specialty diets or dietary requests out there, such as, kosher, gluten-free (gluten-intolerant), vegetarian, vegan, South Beach diet, Atkins diets (low-no carb), sugar-free, diabetic, low fat, any-and-every sort of food allergy or even just good ol’ picky eaters, choosing an affordable wedding menu that you feel comfortable will satisfy every guest can seem like an impossible feat.
Here at Belle’s Catering, we have dealt with most, if not all, of these special dietary requests at some point in the our past, and work hard to stay privy to any new trendy diet fads. Our team takes every dietary request and/or allergy of every guest seriously. We are always more than happy to sit down with clients to help guide you through some of the more eccentric requests, and create a menu for their event that satisfies and accommodates all!
On your special day, our Chef and staff will partner to organize all of the special requests submitted. When it comes to the dietary restrictions or allergies, our Chef is more than happy to cook, and keep separated any foods necessary. Our culinary director then ensures that the food for any dietary restriction is plated separately and finally, one of our serving staff hand delivers the specially made plate to you or your guest.
And waaahlaah! Just like magic….we take all the requests and hand deliver them, on your special day for your very special guest(s)!
