As we start booking many weddings for the following season during the summer, we have noticed a trend. People just like beef and chicken! I know, crazy right!? Actually, not really all that crazy considering Beef and Chicken are the two most consumed meats in the US according to USDA ERS Food Availability (Per Capita) Data System and the Agricultural Research Service National Agricultural Library.
But there's a new trend in the US! according to Angela Wong of The Earth Policy Institute, chicken has taken over beef for the first time in over 100 years! Source: Earth Policy Institute. Credit: Angela Wong / NPR
I know what you're thinking......"what the heck does this have to do with my wedding or special event?! Everything!!!!! Beef wants revenge on chicken and they are facing off in our buffet ring so that we can test this data! No, we kid you ha ha. But seriously, what we have found is that our most popular package for the past three years was chicken and pasta. But this year, our newest addition to the wedding packages called "The Dueling Stations." is ranking in at #1 and for a great reason. This buffet/chef manned station offers chicken and roasted beef "BOTH," carved to order for your guests. And the kicker? it also gives them two homemade sauces to choose from for each. Yep, 2 for each including such favorites as our famous horseradish cream, a nice terragon bearnaise or our red wine & shallot demi. Those are only a few of the options you'll get to choose from to conclude 2 sauces for your beef, and 2 for your chicken. This will be served with your choice of 2 sides, dinner salad, two dressings, bread and butter. Not bad eh? Actually it's pretty awesome. So tell your fiance, boss, parents and get on our calendar that is filling up quickly!
