She’s the winner of “Top Chef” and he’s a craft beer consultant. Together, their wedding menu was nothing short of fantastic. Stephanie Izard and Gary Valentine were married earlier this month, and nobody can stop talking about their crazy wedding cake.
The cake, created by the pastry chef at Stephanie’s Chicago restaurant, included a layer made of chocolate-covered Cheez-Its, peanut butter, and chocolate ganache. Another layer of the cake was flavored with strawberry Nesquik and chocolate with bacon buttercream.
While much of the media focus has been on the cake, it’s worth mentioning the rest of the couple’s family style menu. It included a pasta course that combined cavatelli with smoked eggplant and heirloom tomatoes. The main course was red wine braised beef short ribs, grilled broccoli, and a bacon vinaigrette. In honor of the groom, the menu also featured a selection of craft brewed beers.
Stephanie and Gary’s menu shows that it’s possible for a wedding’s food to be creative and delicious. If you’re looking for a stand-out menu for your San Diego wedding, give us a call today!
