MERGING TWO WORLDS
Salthouse is accustomed to working with clients from all over the country and around the World to create a menu that reflects who they are and what they love. We were excited to be part of a wedding that would merge two families, their backgrounds and customs. Half of the guests would be Indian and the couple wanted to offer authentic Indian cuisine paired with our traditional southern fare. After the tasting, the bride, her sister and wedding planners chose Salthouse’s shrimp & grits, mustard roasted cauliflower and classic tomato pie.
We were happy to work with a local restaurant to provide the Indian cuisine, which we would pair tastings with our food and serve family-style. Guests would be treated to a combination of food that matched the couple’s unique heritage.
The wedding took place at the beautiful and historic Legare-Waring house (lowcountryparkvenues.com). The ceremony was situated under a row of oaks followed by a family style dinner served at long farm tables set up under draped lighting and hanging Spanish moss. Guests enjoyed communal dining at its best with platters of food and conversation flowing around the table. The evening was topped off with gourmet doughnuts served out of Diggity Doughnuts food truck. An empty belly was not to be found.
