Allan House Wedding

May 6, 2012

It’s always a delight being at the Allan House, a beautiful Victorian home located  in the heart of downtown Austin.  2 Dine 4 is privileged to be one of the preferred professionals that the folks at the Allan House trust to treat this turn-of-the century treasure with the care and respect it deserves.

And we were even more privileged to have been selected by Wenny and Steve to cater their wedding there recently.  Wenny and Steve came to a Supper Friends dinner and after experiencing an evening of fine food and enlightened hospitality they knew they had found their caterer.

Wenny and Steve enjoy good food and so composing the perfect menu was very important to them.   Working closely with their event planner and Chef Chris they came up with a menu that would delight both them and their guests.

Passed Hors d’oeuvres

                 Gougeres of Duck Confit with Cherry Compote and Arugula Sprouts

              Sesame Seared Ahi Tuna Tostada with Marinated Cucumbers & Wasabi Guacamole

Dinner Buffet

Arugula and Baby Spinach Salad with Pumpernickel Croutons, Toasted Caraway, Gorgonzola, Heirloom Tomatoes and Sake Pickled Onions

Oven Poached Atlantic Salmon with Ginger Lobster Sauce & Crispy Leeks

Beef Shortribs en Daube with Baby Zucchini and Roasted Pearl Onions

       Potatoes Lyonnaise

Ratatouille of Fresh Garden Vegetables

Freshly Baked Focaccia Bread

With a menu like that it wasn’t surprising that several guests made more than one trip to the buffet which is always the ultimate compliment!

Many thanks to Wenny and Steve for allowing us to be a such an important part of their big day. And we look forward to the next opportunity to spend another charming evening under the majestic oaks of the Allan House.
