Just because they’re not eating in the dining room doesn’t mean that members and guests expect less than outstanding food. For takeout and grab-and-go fare, club and resort chefs’ satellite menus are displaying creativity and attention to delicious details.
Today’s couples want wedding venues that can create a one-of-a-kind experience. At clubs and resorts across the country, catering professionals are working with brides and grooms to customize every aspect of their special day, from cocktails to dessert.
Whether the menu features burgers and steaks, luxe lobsters or a succulent suckling pig, just about anything cooked on a barbecue grill or in a smoker is sure to fire up members’ appetites. And for chefs, open-air cooking also opens the way to exercising new creativity with deeply flavorful combinations of woods, seasonings and sauces.
A spirited sip or fragrant smoke can give members and guests a big finish to a great dinner—and good reasons to linger a little longer.
With their distinctive combinations of specialty ingredients, French-inspired cooking techniques and sassy seasonings, Cajun and Creole cuisine have earned their place on dining-room menus far beyond their original bayou boundaries.
Beverages sometimes take a backseat to food at clubs and resorts. But thoughtfully curated and promoted offerings of both spirited and spirit-free libations can reap high profit margins, while enhancing member and guest interest and loyalty.
