No 346: the Family Style Dinner

Friday, January 1, 2010

Family style meals are an elegant and cost-effective way to serve a sit down dinner, and I can't imagine my wedding meal any other way. Whether it's beautiful filets and roasted fingerling potatoes sprinkled with rosemary, steaming pans of paella or pan seared sea scallops and a cucumber salad with sweet vinagrette dressing, everything looks more delicious in large quantities. Besides the stunning visual rewards, as seen in this photo from Martha Stewart Weddings, guests eating a meal family style pass, share and chat. It creates the feeling of an intimate dinner party whether you have 50 guests or 250.
