Phillip Koenig, partner at The Silver Spoon, caters hundreds of weddings and has insider insight into what brides will want to serve at their 2019 nuptials. He whispered his secrets to TOPS:
» Champagne cocktails.
» Soup, like butternut squash, tomato dill or corn chowder, served with mini grilled cheese sandwiches, either as an appetizer or instead of a salad.
» Boneless fried chicken served with a light herb sauce.
» Filet of beef is a permanent trend.
» High end-comfort food. Beef short ribs often top the list.
» Heirloom potatoes and heirloom tomatoes.
» Glazes: orange or lemon glaze on chicken, bourbon molasses glaze on beef, and bourbon-infused sauces.
» Corn pudding and other Kentucky-centric foods.
» Donut boards and donut stations, non-traditional cakes and pies.
» Gluten-free and vegetarian options.
