Kosher Wedding Menu Ideas


Follow these kosher menu ideas for your upcoming wedding!

Besides the main ceremony, one of the most important parts of any wedding is the food and drinks you will serve to your guests during the reception.  If you or your partner is of the Jewish faith, your menu will most likely be kosher which may seem difficult to achieve, but don’t worry the Catering by Alan Weiss has you covered.  You will need to construct a menu that will please all of your guests and leave them with a pleasant experience.  Follow these menu ideas especially if you have a wedding closely approaching.  

Cocktail Hour

At most weddings, the reception starts with guests mingling with each other and sipping on delicious beverages.  Treat your guests to several options of cocktails, beers, and wines.  A popular Jewish wedding trend is having a small wine tasting before the main meal.  Have your guests try a selection of premium wines.  A wedding reception cocktail hour wouldn’t be complete without tasty hors d’oeuvres.  For meat options, include a variety of choices from pigs in a blanket to beef wellington.  Don’t forget to offer vegetarian options spring rolls to cheese plates.  Make sure your guests can pick up the hors d’oeuvres easily, and they are bite-size, so your guests will stay have room for the big meal.

The Main Course

The food for the main course all depends if you want to stick with meat or dairy.  For great meat option, go for a classic chicken breast with roasted potatoes and vegetables.  If you want to serve dairy-based options, then have your guests try an eggplant quiche or a Jewish staple, kugel.  A Jewish wedding trend is to have small plates served during the main course rather than a large scale buffet.  Have your guests try all of the food you have to offer them.  


Any wedding isn’t complete without a great dessert menu.  If you choose to go dairy, then you have a wide selection of treats to choose from including cakes and brownies.  Don’t forget to offer fruit-based options like sorbets for people who do not consume dairy products.
