Hire a chef or caterer that excels at the type of food you’re looking for rather than pushing them to do something out of their comfort zone. Sure a sushi chef can likely make a decent pasta, but do you really want “decent” pasta on your wedding day? Probably not. Instead find the chef that’s heart and soul lies in creating the perfect pasta. Or, if you don’t have a specific vision, allow the chef to guide you in the selections that he excels in ultimately ensuring the guests will have the best possible experience. For more tips on finding the perfect caterer, check out some tips from one of our all time fav caterers, Room Forty, here and here.
