Seasonal menus bring out the freshest flavors and unique pairings. We wondered what the latest menu offerings will be at Philadelphia wedding venues. We asked top Philadelphia wedding caterers what is new for Spring and what they are highlighting for the season.

Jeffrey Miller Catering: A great dish that we love to serve in the spring and that says “Spring” is a chilled asparagus soup shooter as an hors d’oeuvres. It is made when local asparagus are in season- usually end of April, and is made with just asparagus, chicken or vegetable stock, and some chive oil. We just blanche the asparagus, then puree them. to serve, we heat the stock, whisk in the puree, season, and serve with a little squeeze of the chive oil. No cream, not too thick, and chives give a springtime flavor to the dish.
