Cru Catering Designs Magical and Delicious Menu for Former Olympian, Tara Lipinski’s Charleston Wedding
Posted on July 19, 2017
We were thrilled to hear that Cru Catering had be chosen as the caterer for the wedding of Former Olympic figure skater, Tara Lipinski, and Fox Sports Producer Todd Kapostasy. It’s an honor to work with any bride and groom on their special day and every event is magical, but this one did leave us feeling particularly proud of the entire Cru Crew.
People Magazine covered the Charleston wedding in detail and included tidbits about their delicious and crowd-pleasing chicken and waffles. Served in two varieties, guests could choose from fried chicken served in a waffle cone or friend chicken atop mini waffles, both served with maple bacon remoulade. The question of the night- would you like a cone or waffle?
Southern Living also acknowledged their southern cuisine in their coverage of this special event. Aside from the ever-popular chicken and waffles, other options included watermelon skewers, mini steak tacos, shrimp and grits, and fried green tomatoes. A crowd favorite was the watermelon and tomato skewers- a combination of champagne-shallot compressed watermelon, smoked gouda, and tomato.
The dinner service was equally elegant and exceptionally romantic, and allowed Cru to show off some of our heartier offerings. We continued late into the night to make sure we kept guests fed during their dancing and revelry, offering late night snacks like mini Philly cheese steaks, French toast bites and adult milkshakes. The chocolate Kahlua milkshakes served with French fries were a hit with everyone – what’s better than a delicious salty sweet combo after an epic night of celebrating!
