Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto Married!

The first photos and details are starting to be released from Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto’s Florida wedding. The couple were married last week, and their reception was held in the biggest ever wedding tent.

The 40,00 square foot tent was set up on the golf course of the Bear Club and was a short distance from the couple’s 35,000 square foot mansion at the club. It included separate areas for the cocktail hour, meal, and dancing.

We haven’t heard what was served for the couple’s wedding dinner, but we’re guessing they opted for something fresh and healthy. Both Michael and Yvette are in great shape, so we think there was a lot of low-fat luxury going on.

Yvette is Cuban, so we think there was also a good bit of spice in the menu. Having a Cuban-infused menu can be a great way of getting a lot of beautiful colors and flavors on the plate.

Kelly Clarkson’s Wedding Will Be Southern Style

Leave a comment

Kelly Clarkson is getting a lot of planning done for her upcoming wedding to Brandon Blackstock. This week she chose her dress — a Vera Wang gown rumored to be from the designer’s Fall 2012 collection — and told People a bit about what she has planned for the big day.


There’s been plenty of speculation about who will be performing at the wedding, and Brandon’s step-mom, who happens to be Reba McEntire, had been expected to sing. It now seems like they’ve arranged for Blake Shelton to perform, with Reba ready to go in case she’s needed.

Kelly has also said that the wedding is going to reflect the couple’s country roots. Kelly’s home state of Texas will be well represented by yellow roses, too.

With a thoroughly Southern affair, we’re looking forward to seeing what they choose for their wedding menu. We love catering a down home affair like the one Kelly and Brandon are planning. A Southern menu is the perfect combination of excellent flavors and fresh ingredients.

Destination Wedding for Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

Have you heard?  Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds tied the knot last Sunday at a destination wedding in South Carolina.  Destination weddings are becoming ever so popular..especially in New Orleans.

For example, we had the honor of catering a recent New Orleans destination wedding of Parker Argote and Whitney Pozgay.  They got engaged on a trip to New Orleans but live in New York.

Along with many other beautiful details, guests snacked on crab-broiled brisket and herb- and panko-crusted chicken sliders from Food Art, Inc.

They were topped with “Yum!” kraft paper flags on skewers.  If you’re having a wedding in New Orleans, (destination or otherwise) and still in need of an excellent caterer, please give us a call.  We will make your wedding food memorable in both taste and presentation.


Think Outside the Meat; Vegan Wedding Menu

Leave a comment

For a wedding, you choose your favorite colors, themes, centerpieces, flowers… why not your menu?  As a New Orleans wedding caterer,  I think people feel obligated to serve chicken or beef because they’re trying to accommodate their guests.

There was an all-vegan menu in former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.

But think about this; when you picked out your flowers, did you pick out flowers that all of your guests would like?  What about when you chose your colors and your invitations?  Did you make sure that all of your guests would approve of your colors and invitations first?  No, you didn’t.  Same for the menu.  It’s your wedding, it’s your menu. If you are vegan or vegetarian, definitely have a vegan or vegetarian menu!

Here are a few vegan wedding menu items that everyone will love.  

  • Seitan and veggie skewers (with plum sauce)
  • Sweet potato spread and plum tomato crostini with balsamic drizzle
  • Fresh fruit skewers
  • Spring rolls with soy-ginger dipping sauce
  • Stuffed grape leaves
  • Vegan Lettuce Wraps
  • Falafel with soy yogurt Tzatziki sauce
  • Butternut Squash Soup Shooters
  • A Bruschetta Station

What do you think?  Do you think your wedding guest will complain about a menu like that?  Food Art, Inc. is a full service, catering company in New Orleans that happens to serve vegan and gluten free menus.

If a vegan or gluten free wedding menu is what you’re looking for then give us a call.  We’re not just a vegan and gluten free New Orleans wedding caterer, but we do understand that everyone has their lifestyle and our top priority is to cater to everyone.

Jennifer Aniston Engaged!

According to the Associated Press, Jennifer Aniston accepted the marriage proposal of boyfriend Justin Thereoux on Sunday night.  As a wedding caterer, we’re interested in the type of food that Aniston and Thereoux will serve their wedding guests.

Perhaps they’ll follow in the footsteps of these other popular celebrity weddings:

The McConaughey wedding, was a particularly carnivorous affair in a nod to his bride Camila Alves’ Brazilian background.  According to Entertainment Tonight Canada, the meal was catered by local Brazilian steak house Estancia Churrascaria, which served Brazilian steak, chicken wrapped in bacon and pork sausages and cheese bread to wedding guests.

Drew Barrymore married Will Kopelman earlier this month in the backyard of her Montecito home and hired popular Los Angeles chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, who helm restaurants Animal and Son of a Gun, to serve lobster rolls and pork buns, reported People magazine.

How about you?  What food are you serving and who will cater your New Orleans wedding?
