Two full lambs to roast and 140 wedding guests to serve? Challenge accepted!
On Saturday May 26th 2018, Aksel Bourdages & Emily Campbell tied the knot in a rustic yet formal wedding ceremony in Westsyde, Kamloops. We put together a huge spread for this wedding banquet, with two distinct meat dishes and a variety of complimentary sides that really seemed to satisfy the large group! “We had Nourishing Gourmet cater our wedding in Kamloops… and it was great! We had a double lamb & chicken dinner with all the extras. The lamb was amazing, and very important to us. They were very accommodating for those with food restrictions, myself being one!”

We started of course with the roasted lambs! Provided by Sullindeo Farms in Kamloops, who Nourishing Gourmet secured a partnership with earlier in the year, the lambs were raised naturally on organic grass pastures only being fed non-medicated & non-GMO grain products. With this kind of care for the meat it makes our jobs as wedding caterers that much easier! We served these beautiful pieces of meat with a from-scratch, rosemary gravy that used the lamb drippings. In addition to lamb we also prepared some paprika herb roasted chicken for the wedding buffet.

The star of the show here was clearly the roasted lambs, but without the perfect side dishes what really is a meal? We served basmati rice pilaf with fresh mushrooms & thyme, roasted potatoes with herbs & lemon, and a seasonal medley of vegetables in a honey dill butter. The meal was also served with house caesar salad with a homemade dressing, mediterranean pesto pasta salad & our classic organic, house green salad with a trio of from-scratch dressings! To sop up all the delicious lamb gravy, we provided fresh-baked butterflake rolls and hand-pulled herb & garlic focaccia bread served with whipped butter.
