One very important aspect of any event is the food. For our Bohemian-Desert Bridal Brunch, we worked with one of our favorite local caterers, Cuisine Unlimited, to create a colorful, flavorful, and unique menu. Read on to hear about how we came up with such an amazing spread.
"In developing the brunch menu, we tried to incorporate influence from both the bohemian-desert as well as the natural setting of Red Butte Garden. The flavors were the primary consideration in determining the Moroccan-Mediterranean menu, evident in items such as the hummus and chermoula shrimp. We introduced a bit of fusion from other cuisines in the menu by incorporating Mediterranean herbs to the spreads for the cucumber and salmon rolls. The items naturally have very earthy colors, which play very well to the venue. Flavor and visual interest were added through the pomegranate seeds atop the hummus and beet-pickled jicama in the vegetable crudite. Pops of deep color were also added through various preparation methods and garnishes. The beverages used light but interesting flavors so as not to overpower the menu."
