This is my first wedding and I want to keep the quality as good as possible. I would love to be able to not have food sitting in the Cambro hotbox for very long but that does not seem possible. Maybe someone has some tips. The ceremony is at 3 PM to 315 cocktail hour starts at 3:30 dinner starts at 515. My kitchen is an hour away and I don't want to pull up during the ceremony so I would have to get there around 2:00 I think , right? So I would have to have the food cooked and in the hotbox at by 1:00 ?? It's at a house with a single oven. The apps are mini Wellington and risotto croquettes. Dinner is 4 sides- coconut rice, roasted root vegetables, butternut squash hash, and roasted purple potatoes , mole braised chicken and espresso rubbed sirloin. I would love to have a way to avoid having food sitting for 4 hours. The sirloin I think I will slice and keep cold and pour hot sauce on it at service time and the chicken will hold well in the hot box. I might try to fire off the apps at the house. 50 people. Any suggestions??
