The Wedding-Day Menu of One of Our Favorite Chefs
In this same way that I love to see how interior designers decorate their own homes, learning what chefs actually eat day to day, and on their most important days, is fascinating to me. Our food contributor, chef and author Claire Thomas of The Kitchy Kitchen, popped by the Clique Media offices a few months ago and mentioned that her chef pal Jason Neroni, who opened Venice's cult eatery Superba Snack Bar, would be responsible for the menu at her upcoming nuptials, with his famed pasta carbonara making the list. Needless to say, I salivated at the thought. What else would the menu hold? Well, the word is out. Thomas's rustic spring wedding has just hit the web on Style Me Pretty, and now we can ooh and ahh over her decadent menu. Scroll below to see what this discerning foodie and her favorite guests ate on her big day.
Thick-cut bacon crostini.
Yellow pepper crostini with scallions.
Roasted spring tricolor carrots.
Slow-roasted pork belly porchetta with kale salsa verde.
Bucatini carbonara, mascarpone, pancetta, black pepper, poached egg, and parmesan.
Rigatoni, tomato, braised greens, Sicilian condimento, and Formaggio di Fossa.
Fresh fruit cups.
