Boy, do we love our Austin wedding vendors, and our love for Barr Mansion certainly grew when we heard the venue offers seasonal menu tastings for their couples pre-wedding! Barr Mansion creates four seasonal menus each year. Each menu is harvest-based so that Barr‘s executive chef, Thomas Hunter, and his staff can feature the freshest ingredients available at the peak of their flavor. Barr Mansion sources as much produce as possible from their own gardens and other local farmers. Their clients build their own custom menu from their array of offerings, and all of the food served is certified organic! Couples getting married during that time are invited to the tasting so they can try a selection of items from the full menu to choose from for their wedding.
The latest tasting’s menu included gazpacho with marinated cucumbers, bacon-wrapped gulf shrimp with romesco, watermelon salad with feta and chili-lime vinaigrette, spicy Caribbean chicken thighs, roasted steak with Cabernet peppercorn demi-glace, just to name a few! And it was all served in the all-new Farmstead – an outdoor pavilion with a large solar array angled to catch the afternoon sun. Their next tasting for Barr Mansion couples is coming up this week for the Autumn weddings, and we can’t wait to see what all they serve!
Looking for another excuse to try Barr Mansion‘s cuisine? Keep an eye out on their social media for the next seasonal Supper Club this fall! It’s a great time to gather and grow ideas, have fun and enjoy food to make our community sustainable. Visit Barr Mansion online to book a tour and to look into more tasting options.
