In an Instagram Live Q&A for The Pioneer Woman Magazine, Alex revealed she trusts her mom to take over (food-wise) during their wedding at the Oklahoma ranch on Saturday.
“My mom has kind of been the mastermind behind the wedding menu honestly,” Alex, 23, said. “I haven’t even tasted the food. My mom tasted it all for us.”
Ree, 52, added: “Alex rightly said that I love food more than anyone she knows so she trusts me.”
The menu will be catered by Food Network star’s restaurant, the Mercantile — which includes beef tenderloin filet, charred vegetables, peppers and asparagus, and mashed potatoes as one of the side dishes.
Ree says she “obsessed” over a variety of dipping sauces to accompany the beef.
“There are a lot of men in Osage County who firmly believe that you should never put steak sauce on a steak so we have a cute little dish with three little sauce containers and three little sauces so guests can decorate their plate and add whichever ones they want.”
Side dishes will be macaroni and cheese with caramelized onions and seven cheeses, including two different processed cheeses (to make it “dreamy and creamy,” Alex says), Fontina, goat cheese, mozzarella, sharp cheddar, and Parmesan.
“It’s actually cheese with a little macaroni added,” Ree adds.
And while Alex didn’t plan the savory courses — she DID have give input when it came to dessert.
“We decided to go with vanilla cake with vanilla icing,” Alex says. “I know it’s so basic, but it’s definitely my favorite.”
