02 Apr Tips for planning a tasty menu for weddings in Tuscany
Menu for weddings in Tuscany – The menu of the wedding lunch or dinner is always an important part of a ceremony. This becomes even more fundamental if you decide to celebrate your big day in Tuscany, a land famous worldwide for its food and wine.
Here are some tips from Wed in Florence to help you with the planning:
1 – Determine the Number of Guests: The number of guests on your guest list is the first thing you need to know. Then you should check if there are children and how many in order to create a specific menu for them.
2 – Identify the Allergies of your Guests: Some guests may have some allergies to gluten, milk, nuts or other foods that need to be mentioned to the caterer while planning your reception menu. Be sure your guests can enjoy a typical Bruschetta (toasted bread with vegetables), a tasty portion of Lasagne and a beautiful fillet of steaks.
3 – Decide on what Tuscan Food you want to include: If you are dreaming of a wedding menu with traditional Tuscan food you should include tasty plates of different types of Salami and Ham mixed with a delicious selection of dry and soft cheeses made in Siena. All of this may be served with vegetable jams or sauces produced by a local farmhouse of the Chianti area. Don’t forget to include the typical Pici, a type of pasta from the south of Tuscany or the Tortelli which are a local product of the north of the Region.
