Uneda CateringFamily Style.
Our catering menus are always bold & rustic using fresh & locally available ingredients.
Generally our format is a selection of passed appetizers, salad & bread, and then either one or two main courses served family style on platters to each table. Usually the meat is on one platter and the vegetables and side on another.
We buy whole local animals for your event, so for example a pig will give us braised shoulder, roasted loins and sausages. For lamb or goat we would serve roasted legs, chops & ribs, and braised shoulder. Rabbit would be braised legs and roasted saddle. Ducks yield confited legs and roasted breasts. Chickens are roasted whole and cut French-style into eight portions. Fish is whatever is local, seasonal and best quality, roasted in the wood-burning oven very quickly and served immediately. Every meat and fish is garnished with a fresh herb sauce (gremolata, salsa verde, romesco etc.)
Vegetarian main course options are highly seasonal, and can be served family style at every table or plated and served to individual vegetarian guests. Choices include roasted & stuffed peppers, roasted whole cauliflower, stuffed baby squash, & couscous with dried apricot & nuts.
