Brides opting for healthier food
May 15, 2009
When it comes to the food served at the wedding reception, some brides are choosing meals that are unique and healthy for their guests.
Will Greenwood, executive chef at a West Virginia resort, told CBS affiliate WVNS that he has been cooking up meals that are low in fat and cholesterol such as seared tuna and lamb. With the tuna dish, Greenwood said he topped it off with avocado, caviar and a seaweed salad.
"Certainly something for the adventuresome but with people loving sushi the way they do now a days this is a dish I feel comfortable serving to a lot of the masses," Greenwood told the news provider.
However, being this adventurous may not be the best idea for all guests, since some people can be very picky or have food allergies. Because of this, it may be a good idea to have other options available.
As for dessert, Greenwood told the television station that though the wedding cake is still seen as the centerpiece of the evening, some couples are giving their guests a different dessert with their meal (perhaps something that goes better with the adventurous choice) and sending everyone home with a piece of cake.
