Elegant Plated Dinner Wedding Reception at the Lange Farm
Posted on January 11th, 2011 - 1 Comment
Many of our brides and grooms shy away from plated dinners because of they believe they’re limited to the tired old choices most often associated with seated dinners – overcooked filet mignon or dried out chicken. But when they are open to new ideas and don’t mind serving their guests great food, the magic happens. Recently, Good Food Catering Company was honored to design a great menu for a fantastic couple and served it with class at The Lange Farm.
Tara and Warren wanted an elegant plated dinner, but wanted it to taste great as well as give their guests something to remember. I guess we could tell you all about the food, but instead, we’ll show you, courtesy of some great shots by Carrie Wildes Photography. Guests had their choice of -
“Charleston Style” Shrimp and Sausage
Cabernet Braised Beef Short Ribs
A Happy Bride and Groom!!
Because the bride and groom trusted us in their food choices, we were able to serve top-notch food conducive to plated service while also integrating the bride’s Southern roots. Even though dishes like Shrimp and Grits may have been traditionally limited to the South, their popularity is increasing and they’ve become a staple for gourmet restaurants across the United States. If you don’t believe us, check out this great e-mail testimonial we received from the bride’s aunt in Texas:

Lange Farm Wedding Catering-Indian Fusion Menu
Posted on August 31st, 2010 - 1 Comment
Just recently for a Lange Farm Wedding, we had the pleasure of providing a fusion of great Indian and American food for a unique wedding where two cultures and two great people were being united. The task was challenging: His background was Indian and hers was of local Florida. So how do you put together a wedding where both families can both be represented?
The simple answer – call Good Food Catering Company! We work regularly with an Indian chef who is able to cook authentic Indian food and customize it for the occasion. We often have requests for great Indian food and we do it by integrating it with our regular menus to create a fun and diverse food display. In this particular instance, we created two separate stations to reflect the food and culture of both the bride and the groom. To begin during cocktail hour, we served a duo of bite sized samosas – Potato and Pea alongside Spinach and Cheese, both served with a traditional mint sauce. It turned out that they were one of the biggest hits of the evening. To beat the heat, we served mango lassis, but in miniature shot glasses!
For the Indian food, we served….
Indian Curry Bar
A curry bar attended by two servers, dishing up basmati rice, to be topped with your guest’s choice of…
A healthy blend of seasonal vegetables cooked in a curry sauce and spices
Chicken Tikka Masala
A signature Indian chicken curry dish cooked in a rich and flavorful bright orange masala sauce and yogurt
And to show off the “Tampa” roots, we created a….
Flavor of Florida Station
Key Lime Caesar Salad
A Florida twist on a classic salad! Elegantly served, romaine lettuce is tossed lightly with our house-made creamy key lime Caesar dressing and served on a vertical buffet display for a unique and modern look.
South Florida “Black Beans and Rice Bar”
A classy twist on a rustic South Florida influenced dish – Cuban black beans and rice.
To keep the crowd flowing smoothly
your guests will be served the black beans and rice
by one uniformed staffer, and then move to another section of the station
where a second staffer will dish out your guest’s choices of toppings, including
sliced marinated and grilled flank steak, pulled Cuban roast pork,
scallions, red peppers and caramelized onions.
The crowd was wowed by the ultra chic food presentation using our hand hammered copper chafers for the Indian food station and a rustic look of brick and cast iron for our “Taste of Tampa station.” Check out this great photo collage from photographer Angel He !
