Aaron provided some information about his business, serving methods, and tips for engaged couples planning a wedding. Especially how to hire the right wedding and event caterer.
-A quick bio on me is: I’m the chef-owner of Premier Catering in Mt. Juliet, I’m a graduate of The French Culinary Institute in Manhattan, NY. My resume includes The Inn at Blackberry Farm, The Biltmore Estate and The Grove Park Inn among others. We recently celebrated our second year in business at Premier and growing.
-If I had to pick a signature menu it would be:
-Strawberry Fields with Baby Spinach, Candied Spiced Pecans, Red Onion, Watermelon Radish and Poppy Seed Vinaigrette.
-12 Hour Beef with Cabernet-Thyme Demi Glace, Scalloped Potatoes with Rosemary and Asiago , Jack and Ginger Glazed Carrots with Shallots
Premier can accommodate buffet, family style or formal plated service. We generally see more buffets requested by brides. Be aware that staffing and rental costs will increase for family style or plated meals.
How to find the right caterer for your wedding or event – There are many choices with Nashville and Lebanon wedding and event caterers.
-My advice would be to set up a taster with a few different caterers to see which one matches the vision you have for your big day and to make sure you are comparing apples to apples in regard to taste and food quality.
Also, catering will probably be your second biggest expense when it comes to your budget. Be cautious of the lowest bidder and ask questions such as, is staffing and service charge included in a caterers quote.
