More and more weddings are choosing to give their guests a choice of two entrees by selecting their meal in their RSVP card. Is this a good idea? Absolutely it is but you need to know the following before going this route: the most important thing is the reply card. If you are sending an invitation to a family of 2 or more then you MUST have a line for each guest to fill out their name and what they would like to eat. This way you can make a spreadsheet with each guest s name and their order when you present it to the Manager at the venue. The last thing you want is a reply card with 3 chicken and 2 fish and not knowing who is having what. It makes it very difficult on the Chef and wait staff the night of the wedding and you can run into some embarrassing situations. Here is where you organizational skills come into play.
Some have even told me that they want to make sure that consuming these meals doesn t affect their overall results. To address these concerns I ll look at some nutritional information for some of these chef s table entrées. Since the biggest concern seems to be about the calories and protein I ll then take the averages of both to give you a better idea of what you d be taking in if were to consume these meals on a regular basis. It may make you feel better to know that the chef s table meals are in line with the other meals on all plans including the core or the select lines. All of the meals are pretty low in calories and pretty high in protein. For example the steak tagliata has 260 calories 22 grams of protein 2 grams of fibers and 18 of carbohydrates.
Dried seafood is popularly used as entrees owing to its taste and texture and because it complements the usual flavour and feel of main dishes. The following dried seafood may be used as entrees for a delightful course meal you ll ever had: Dried Abalone According to Tiffany Lam the dried abalone texture is like a meaty chewy mushroom and it s often cooked in a rich soy-based broth. She recommends home cooks to soak the abalone in water for two to three days in the fridge then dunk it in boiling water for an hour and leave it to cool in the pot. After rinsing the abalone under running water for two hours it s ready to be stewed with red meat such as ham and roasted goose. Fish maw Fish maw for those who do not know is the air bladder of all fishes except sharks and rays. It is cleaned dried and then deep-fried.
