If you're hosting a winter wedding, here are some comforting catering options to warm up your wedding guests
1. Thai Style Hot & Sour Crab Soup
The perfect alternative starter, this recipe combines the goodness of crab with Thai chillies, lime and coconut milk for an aromatic appetiser. Favis of Salcombe are a family firm who have been sustainably fishing off the South Devon coast for three generations and are triple gold award winners of the Taste of the West Awards this year.
2. Rich Steak and Ale Stew
At a chilly winter wedding, nothing is a more heartwarming sight than The Cotswold Kitchen's beautiful, rich steak and ale stew with all the trimmings, Yorkshires, slow roast tomatoes and a host of veggies. Served to the table for guests to enjoy together.
3. Chorizo Stuffed Turkey
This cracker of a turkey dish is the ultimate winter warmer from South West caterer Pickle Shack. Fresh chorizo stuffing creates a serious taste sensation that goes hand in hand with the turkey and all its trimmings. An epic example of comfort food, best served sharing-style to the table for everyone to dig into.
4. Chicken Wrapped in Parma Ham
One of the UK’s leading wedding caterers, Beales Gourmet (based at the award-winning Italian Villa at Compton Acres) inspire your winter wedding menu with their take on chicken wrapped in Parma ham. Their delicious version is served with Dauphinoise potatoes, roasted winter vegetables and a Madeira jus. See the full video to help you try the recipe at home.
5. Mulled juice
And if an alternative drink is what you're after, this immune-busting mulled juice from Imbibery London will be a welcome treat for your wedding guests and best of all... you can make it yourself. Add two cups of baby spinach, one bosc pear and a piece of ginger (cut and peeled) to the juicer and then warm on a low heat on the stove for 45 seconds. Squeeze a quarter of a lemon wedge and serve with a cinnamon stick.
