Soooo… more details on the wedding that the Editor and hubby crashed last weekend! Yesterday, we shared our thoughts on the entertainment. But there cannot be a wedding ~ especially an Italian wedding ~ without good food!!! And a cocktail for hubby to get into the wedding crashing mood!
As you walked into the event space, you were greeted by an adorable wish tree the happy couple set out for guests to write well wishes. We did one too! Hopefully, when they get back from their honeymoon in Ireland and read the tags, it will make them chuckle!
Bar to the right and appetizer buffet set to the left. Two big sections overflowing with food! The first table was the gourmet pizza station with a rotating selection of thin crust, straight-from-the-oven piping hot pizzas. Veggie was delicious, pepperoni always good but my favorite was the three cheese. YUM!
The other section was a selection of salami, prosciutto and soppressata next to a HUGE platter of mixed olives, marinated mushrooms, stuffed cherry peppers, marinated artichoke hearts, roasted tomato and mozzarella salad. In addition, there was a nice assortment of cheeses including Swiss, cheddar, havarti, bleu and goat with crackers. And for you healthy eaters, an overflowing platter of crudite ~ baby carrots, celery sticks, broccoli florets, sliced cucumbers and cherry tomatoes with ranch and Italian dips.
An intermezzo of fresh fruit in a root beer float type of glass was served at the table. Followed by a delightful house salad also served at the table.
Then on to the main course! There was a carving station for the roast prime rib of beef served with horseradish. On the buffet, you could select chicken francaise with lemon butter sauce or the stuffed filet of sole. I enjoyed the perfectly cooked prime rib and hubby loved the stuffed sole and both of us thought the chicken was delightful. For the sides, there were oven-roasted potatoes, a veggie trilogy and penne pasta in red sauce.
And for dessert, confetti cake and vanilla ice cream!
Everything was delicious and plentiful! Mazel tov!
