So you’ve secured a venue, and are starting to reach out to vendors. Flowers, music, cake, and the big one, catering. Maybe your venue takes care of your catering, or maybe you need to find an outside vendor. But in either case, a tasting option will probably be in your future.
What does that mean exactly? Tastings are offered in two common ways…group tastings or private tastings. In either option, one thing remains the same: your wedding menu tasting is for you to learn about the chef’s style and quality of cooking. It is NOT a free-for-all tasting of anything and everything you want from the menu. For private tastings, there will most likely be a set tasting menu, or you may have limited choices from different categories. Group tastings look a little different, with a buffet style set-up of dishes the chef wants to highlight.
The group tastings will be the choice the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge offers moving forward. Twice a year we will be offering group tastings free for couples who have booked weddings with us, and a cover fee for those still shopping around. This gives everyone a chance to try several different food options. 2021 tastings will be:

Remember to take notes on what you taste, and take pictures so you can distinguish between dishes. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and give feedback, for your best experience possible. And have fun!
