Steal this menu: Pacific Northwest-style comfort food (plus root beer floats!) #Food#food#menu#seattle#washington August 1 2012 | Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photos by Carly Bish Perhaps I was jonesing for some comfort food, but when I spied the menu from Lisa and Kevin's garden party comfort food wedding, I was all "YESSSSSSS." So I asked Lisa to give us even more information on their wedding day noms. Lisa and Kevin worked with a chef at Orcas Hotel and requested all of the dishes listed, which were totally doable and awesome. They were focusing on comfort food-meets-Pacific Northwest. Plus, they handled some of the snack items and the cakes themselves. The week before the wedding they made 60 quarts of caramel corn and the three wedding cakes. These two aren't underachievers. The pre-ceremony snack: homemade caramel corn in action. Main Dishes Now this looks like a good example of pecan-crusted chicken.

But in the menu, Lisa's dad also had his moment. He was a pecan farmer, so they asked Chef Ryan to make something with pecans. They were already planning fried chicken, so in came pecan-crusted chicken! Delicious and meaningful is a total win.

This one features brussels sprout and asparagus, but she also had peppers... Read more Lisa and Kevin had originally been thinking of something like lobster rolls, but decided on crab roll sandwiches instead, to bring in some Pacific Northwest flavor. For the vegetarian crowd, these crispy tofu sandwiches look amazing and fancy. Side dishes Lisa told us that she heard lots of stories about guests trying to scam other tables out of their hush puppies! From the looks of them, I can totally see why. Cole slaw is a natural choice for a comfort food companion. It's good alone or stacked on top of other food! It's versatile like that. You can never go wrong with mini corn on the cob. But perhaps think about putting some tooth picks on the table for later. Beverages and desserts (which are also sometimes both!) The THREE homemade cakes. Lemonade in a vintage-style dispenser is perfection. This was served alongside the caramel corn before the ceremony. The pièce de résistance (according to me) were the root beer floats. Nothing says summer like a good ol' Black Cow. Lisa and Kevin served up all of the food on their own vintage china, which they are now renting out under the name "rad wedding crockery."
