Steph & Shawn's Wedding
Nelson: A few days after my wedding, we attended a friend's wedding up north at a golf club. Golf clubs are nice settings, but we didn't consider it for ourselves because they usually can't host as many people as banquet halls.
King Valley Market Salad: Assorted baby lettuce surrounded by English cucumber and Japanese nori, topped with sweet peppers, garden fresh tomatoes and pea sprouts with a lemon olive oil vinaigrette. This salad came in a nice, almost floral arrangement-like presentation.
Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin: Accompanied with a brochette of shrimp & scallops, served on Madeira onion jus, garlic and herb mashed potatoes and asparagus and market vegetables. Kitty had this main and it was quite tasty. Rare to see pork served at a wedding, but I think it should be a more popular option.
10 oz Madagascar Peppercorn Sirloin Steak: Resting on a pan fried sweet peppers and button mushrooms, served with garlic Parmesan mashed potatoes, topped with peppercorn creme and grilled onions. I really like onions with my steak and glad they were included.
Belgium Milk Chocolate French Silk: Served in a homemade wonton shell, sided with blueberries, raspberries and strawberries garnished with pulled sugar. This dessert was really impressive visually. It is hard to describe the texture of this dessert, a cross between ice cream and mousse, almost like a thick creme. I really liked this dessert and hope I can find this elsewhere to try again!
Raspberry and Mango Sorbet: Fresh raspberry and mango sorbet in a wine goblet with a crispy cookie flan. I remember the fruit taste being really prominent, which is a good thing.
The wedding cake was made by the bride's mother...look at the detail, that is crazy! It looked amazing and absolutely professional.
During the night there was some wedding cake served (slab cake), along with a platter of fruit and a few dessert items (chocolate coconut and pecan tarts). And if by chance you were still hungry, they even had pizza!
Overall, the food was quite good, especially for a golf course.
