An unforgettable wedding always has gastronomy as an essential element. This is a good reason for reviewing some great ideas for the menu on a day so special both for the bride and groom as for their guests.
There are as many wedding menus as there are wedding tastes and budgets, so choosing the menu to be served ends up being one of the main worries when organizing the event.
In any case, the norm is to always begin with a good aperitif as a prelude to the banquet. An aperitif that can include from classics such as mini ham croquettes to more exclusive specialties such as eclairs with foie mousse, sea bass ceviche with tomato compote or crispy brick of goat cheese, dried tomato and basil, which will be served to you at El Principal de l’Eixample.
From here the spotlight is on the starters. The bride and groom have a wide range of choice. How about starting with a cold pea soup and virgin oil ice cream or perhaps a crustacean and beetroot gazpacho? These are good options which, at El Principal de l’Eixample, are joined by others with a fresh character such as chatka salad, watercross and apple.
The wedding banquet can continue with main dishes both of fish and meat. As for the latter, a good option could be roast boneless lamb with potato and truffle strudel, or sirloin steak stuffed with mushrooms and foie sauce.
For those who choose fish, from the menu at El Principal de l’Eixample they will not be able to resist lobster with vegetables, sea bass with onion puff pastry, tomato compote and black olives or scallops and pistachios with white truffle.
However, a wedding menu cannot finish without a sweet touch. A touch which at El Principal de l’Eixample brings specialities such as chocolate in textures with cocoa cream and chocolate ice-cream, mini fondant of warm chocolate, mini cannelloni of pineapple and mascarpone or a tiramisu with amaretto jelly and coffee crumble, among others.
