As a well-respected wedding caterer with over 50 years’ experience, we are very lucky to work with some of the most fabulous wedding venues in the country and through them we get to work with some amazing couples who are super excited about their forthcoming wedding!
One of the highlights of our calendar year is when we get to showcase our wedding catering skills at a Tasting Event hosted by one of our wedding venue partners. The wedding venue will normally invite those couples due to get married at their venue within the next six to nine months and it’s our chance to really impress by serving a variety of dishes; from popular classics to new and innovative dishes of our choice.
Upon arrival at the wedding venue you are treated to a selection of canapés and a glass of bubbly. After exploring the fabulous wedding venue once more, you are invited to take your seats for a three course Tasting Menu of our choice.
From the Bride and Groom’s point of view it’s a tremendously enjoyable day where you get to experience the wedding venue full of people prior to your wedding day; you’ll also get some reassurance on our presentation of food, as well as experiencing first hand, our generous portion sizes and fabulous flavour combinations.
From our perspective as the wedding caterer, it is a thoroughly enjoyable if challenging day. Our Catering Managers love having the opportunity to meet couples in such a relaxed and fun setting. They’ll take the time on the day to explain what the dishes are and answer any questions you couples might have.
Our chef’s meanwhile excel themselves; they have to cope with around 100 covers per sitting where they’ll prepare around 4 different dishes per course. We sometimes joke with couples that their wedding breakfast, normally a set menu for everyone (with just a few exceptions to cater for special dietary requirements) is easy by comparison!
Not all of the wedding venues that we work with host Tasting Events, please contact your wedding venue directly for more information. If you have any special dietary requirements you will be given the opportunity to advise us of this prior to your Tasting Event and we will ensure that your Tasting Menu is altered to suit. If your wedding venue does not hold a Tasting Day, or if you’ve booked Jenkinsons to be your wedding caterer directly, please contact us to discuss your tasting options.
