RoomForty | 100 Layer Cake

Our mouths are totally watering right now. But before we dive into all these yummy food photos from Max and Friends, a little bit about the inspiration behind them… RoomForty founder Steve Fortunato noticed a trend with farm-to-table wedding food these days. It all had that same wood-and-parchment-paper, whole-pig-roasting-on-a-spit, rustic kind of feel (which is totally a fun way to eat, of course). But where did that leave couples who cared about keeping things local and organic, but wanted to make it more on the high end side? RoomForty came up with the “farm to form” concept with couples like that in mind. There’s still that same passion about where they are sourcing their ingredients, but the presentation and cooking technique are sophisticated and refined. Case in point:
