Edible Trends: Chinese goes Classy

October 12, 2011

Everyone loves cuddling up on the couch with a box of Chinese food. It is the perfect order-in comfort food. But why should this delicious cuisine be limited to take-out and restaurant dining? This week PBL is excited to feature Chinese food as a chic and classy option for wedding catering.

Start things off with refreshing lettuce wraps. This appetizer can be served buffet style- perfect for mingling guests.

Impress guests with a Lotus Root Soup appetizer. The secret ingredient in this and other Cantonese-style soups is dried honey dates.

Instead of a salad, serve Chinese Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce (above) and Shrimp Chow Mein.

For the main dish, keep the recipe classic and focus on presentation...

Glazed Cashew Chicken

Jiaozi (pork and leek dumplings)

Fish with Black Bean Sauce 

Our top choice for dessert (besides the wedding cake of course) is the almond tea with puff pastry- simple and delicious!
