Weddings, even in this modern day are still family events and, no matter what part of the world you live in, a wedding is still cause for family and friends to celebrate and that means food! The wedding "banquet", be it Chinese, Jewish, Italian, Thai or Indian, is one of the main focuses of the event in entertaining your guests. Food & beverage will also be about half of most couples' wedding budgets.
With all the food trends that are impacting weddings these days, from "global" and "exotic" to "sustainable" and "organic" cuisines for example and the focus on the ever present statement piece; the Cake, it is no wonder that Wedding Week on The Food Network is always such a big hit with brides and grooms who are in the midst of their wedding planning.
Of course, I'm sure you will also find Hotel & Resort Catering Managers, Catering Companies, Restaranteurs, Pastry Chefs and Wedding Planners (yes, Your Las Vegas Wedding Concierge included), tuning in too. We love this as much as you do!
So make sure to set your DVR (Digital Video Recorder) to FoodNetwork.com over the coming week as they feature a wide variety of Wedding inspired themes to both their regular programming (Duff Goldman, from Charm City Cakes has quite a lot of coverage this week & next on his show "Ace of Cakes" for example & there is an episode of "Unwrapped" dedicated to all things wedding.
All of this leads up to what the network calls "Wedding Day Saturday" with practically a full day of wedding programming. Click here to see the schedule.
Speaking of "specials", I must confess that I love all the Wedding Cake themed "Food Network Challenge" shows. They are always so exciting, interesting and almost agonizing to watch as they create exquisite sugar masterpieces that boggle even the most creative minds.
Enjoy the shows and...
Have a Delicious & Stylish Day!
