Annual Tasting

We are host to about 40 weddings a year.  When we first started doing weddings, we did an individual tasting for each couple.  This wasn’t that big of a deal when there were only 4 couples.  As we grew, we needed to come up with a better way for our couples to try out food.

About four years ago, we offered our couples to ask for specific food items, then we would make that for them in addition to making extra of the items, so others could sample.  We have grown and learned new things doing our best to make everything be as efficient as possible.

This year’s tasting was held the first weekend of March.  It was on a Friday and Saturday.  I had these grand ideas of all the pictures I was going to take showing you how we do our tastings.

About three hours later, I picked up my camera to capture the reason for the lack of pictures.  We were busy.

IMG_3004How about you?  Have you had company over before and gotten the place all fancy only to forget to take pictures of all the fun that took place?
