The BMA House weddings team have been embracing the truly multi-cultural society that they are proud to live in, and in-house caterers BaxterStorey were recently set the test of designing bespoke menus to incorporate elements from two contrasting cultures and fuse them into one mouth-watering menu.
The task of designing a full menu from cultures as diverse as Italian/Irish or Spanish/Sri-Lankan became an exciting challenge for their chefs, who pooled their wealth of experience in global catering techniques to successfully deliver a unique menu enjoyed by both families.
Guests of the Italian/Irish couple were delighted with their menu, which began with starters including a traditional anti-pasti of cured meats, marinated vegetables and buffalo mozzarella accompanied with Irish brown soda bread. Main course options included baked salmon or beef wellington, with vegetarians enjoying a braised barley risotto.
The team were as equally creative when it came to the Spanish/Sri-Lankan fusion, blending sauté chorizo in cider with pimento and smoked paprika starters, to king prawn curry with curried dahl accompanied with Sri Lankan roti bread topped with deviled squid as a main course option.
