18 Dec Best Tahoe Destination Wedding Caterers
I am SO glad that I selected Blend Catering for my September 2018 Wedding. I have been in the wedding catering industry for 8 years. When it came time for me to get married, I chose a destination location in Tahoe and didn’t have time to do a food tasting. I chose Blend based on positive yelp reviews, excellent menu offerings that were on-trend and right up my alley, and really reasonable pricing. Whitney was my main point of contact and always replied quickly and provided plenty of insight, recommendations, and advice.
My wedding was at a private estate that I didn’t get to see until the day before my wedding. I did not have a layout or an accurate seating chart, but that didn’t stop Blend from providing quick and excellent service. Everything was right on time from set up, prep, plating, and clearing. I also asked them to move my ceremony chairs over to the dinner tables, which they banged out with no trouble whatsoever.
The food was to-die-for. Our appetizers were tray-passed and came out right on time, and quickly. Mini Chicken N Waffles with a Sriracha Glaze, Smoked Pork Belly Skewers, and the best citrus cured trout with avocado mousse and puffed grains–my guests were obsessed with the hors d’oeuvres!
Our family-style dinner consisted of a delicious plated salad with grilled summer peaches and goat cheese, and the entrees were a braised beef short rib in red wine caramel, *custom requested* grilled shrimp in a citrus buerre blanc but with a paprika or something that added a beautiful hint of spice to it, served with amazing twice-baked smoked potatoes with black garlic aioli and asparagus with citrus and almonds.
They made fresh doughnut holes for my dessert, and when everyone was dancing and partying, they quickly adapted and went from table-service to tray-passing the sweets around the party.
I can’t thank Blend enough for giving me the most perfect wedding dinner and all of their hard work and service throughout the entire planning and event execution process!
