Once a menu is selected, a date for the tasting is arranged. Depending on how far in advance from the event date and how seasonal the menu selections, the tasting menu may match or deviate from the actual menu. We see the tastings helping the client determine the style and feel for their wedding. Whenever possible we provide the actual food that will be served, but not always. Most caterers charge for the tasting and deduct the cost of the tasting from the invoice when the client books.
