For some folks, food satisfaction is all about the main course. For others, it’s the little things they find tantalizing, and it is for those people we at the Nourishing Gourmet work hard to satisfy by offering a wide variety of delicious, high quality appetizers. If you’re new to the Nourishing Gourmet, we provide wedding catering services in and around Kamloops using as many seasonal, local, and organic ingredients as possible. It is our mission to provide gourmet food and exceptional wedding catering services using wholesome ingredients.
There are a few reasons why you might want to serve appetizers at your wedding reception or other special event. Perhaps you’re having a small, intimate afternoon affair without the need for a full-service dinner? Or perhaps there is a significant time gap between your wedding and reception and you don’t want your guests to wilt from hunger? Appetizers are also an effective way to entertain your family and friends before the main event takes place. They’ll also ensure your guests can nibble while enjoying cocktail hour prior to dinner, helping lessen the chances they’ll over imbibe early on in the festivities.
Our full list of Appetizers and Wedding Buffet menus are available here, but we’re delighted to share a few client favourites.
At a 50th wedding anniversary celebration, the beautiful Shuswap setting was enhanced by the amazing décor and succulent food choices. The meal started out with appetizers consisting of Iberico Ham Crostini, Fig and Brie Phyllo Cups with Okanagan stone fruit chutney, Prawn Lollipops and Champagne.
In order to help create the perfect wedding for another set of clients, we crafted beautiful charcuterie boards for each table, garnished with locally cured meats, homemade cranberry chutney and fresh fruits as well as a special warm fry bread called gnocco frito, prepared onsite.
At yet another unique, fabulous local wedding, we were able to create our first ever custom canoe antipasto platter onsite for the guests to enjoy. Over 15 feet of premium Italian meats and cheeses dominated this bountiful buffet while roasted red pepper dip, homemade hummus and tzatziki gave everyone something special to dip their crackers and fresh breads into. Edible flowers sourced from our local catering gardens put the finishing touches on this masterpiece.
With decades of experience behind us, we know that what matters is helping to make your special day perfect and that includes catering to the tastes and food preferences of you and your guests. For that reason, we have a wide selection of appetizers to choose from. Whether you’re looking for vegetarian, gluten-free, or seafood options, we have something for everyone.
