Cauldron fritter with bourbon cream, anyone?


After just over eight months of anticipation, Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney are reportedly tying the knot this weekend. And despite having a fairly short period to plan, the event sounds extravagant as hell.

According to TMZ, the actress and her art gallerist fiancé will wed in Rhode Island on Saturday before a crowd of around 150 guests (Bradley Cooper? Emma Stone?). While their venue is no doubt lovely, the couple really pulled out the stops where it counts: FOOD.

Hor d’oeuvres are slated to include sweet potato flat cakes, brussels sprouts with cured egg yolk, smoked pork belly with pickled apple, and salt cod beignets — you know, your typical after-school snacks (weren’t mom’s salt cod beignets the best?).

For the main course, guests will have a choice between wood-roasted fish with herbs and lemon-infused butter and five-week-aged leg of beef with forager's sauce.

Dessert is perhaps the most delightfully bougie of the courses, with a selection that includes fire-baked sourdough bread pudding with chocolate, salted caramel and fresh apple, cauldron fritters with bourbon cream and cinnamon sugar (who doesn’t love a good cauldron fritter?), and an American campfire classic: S’mores!

Following suit with the gourmet menu, the specialty cocktails are similarly intricate, including an Old Fashioned (which, OK, is probably the most basic item of the evening) and a gin cucumber lavender Champagne.

We hope Lawrence and Maroney’s guests come hungry (and with a taste for cured egg yolk).
