We love a delicious summer wedding menu full of incredible flavors and local ingredients. We recently spoke with Karen Freeze from Two Fat Men Catering to get the scoop on planning an incredible summer wedding menu in Nashville. For a true sip of summer, Two Fat Men Catering starts the cocktail hour with a refreshing beverage and a yummy passed appetizer. Fruit Sorbet with Sparkling Champagne, Fruit Tea with Pennington Strawberry Whiskey, and infused water with summer favorites of basil, cucumber and citrus are a few favorites. Strawberry Bruschetta is a best selling appetizer – a toasted crostini with mascarpone cheese and fresh strawberries mixed with Tennessee honey topped with aged balsamic.
For a summer wedding, Two Fat Men Catering’s ice cream truck is a must. They are the only licensed small creamery in the state of Tennessee and use only local ingredients, like milk and eggs from Middle Tennessee State’s farm. “All the guests go crazy when we pull the truck up at a wedding reception; it’s like a kid in a candy store. Chef Ed is the mastermind behind all our ice creams. For this summer he is making Strawberry Cheesecake, Watermelon Sorbet, Chocolate Goat Cheese & Walnuts and Peachy Peach.”
Two Fat Men Catering loves incorporating the fresh produce that is available during summertime, like fresh fruits for sauces, jams, and jellies. “The best ingredient is one that is hand-selected for freshness and flavor. To make each recipe stand out, we source the finest ingredients from an extensive network ofspecialty growers and suppliers. We work directly with farmers, and have total confidence that our food is perfectly grown and perfectly fresh.”
Two Fat Men Catering asks all of their couples, “what are your favorite foods?” to begin crafting the perfect wedding menu tailored for each couple. “We have couples asking for foods that make them happy, such as Fried Chicken, Mac & Cheese and Mashed Potatoes. We have our couples asking for their favorite desserts as a dessert station to compliment the wedding cake; Banana Pudding Shots, Our Two Fat Men Homemade Ice Cream served with all kind sof toppings and Homemade Individual Pies.” The chefs take each couple’s favorites and put a spin on them for a fresh summer menu.
Two Fat Men Catering loves to add a Nashville flair to their events with awesome options, such as Nashville Hot Chicken Waffle Tacos, Chicken & Waffle Bites, Fried Pickles, Biscuit Bars for a late night snack, and a Goo Goo Cluster Dessert just to name a few! Your summer wedding menu is sure to be a hit with these delicious options from Two Fat Men Catering. “Give us a call to discuss what your wedding meal ideas are and we would love to help you craft a menu for your big day!”
