The wine for the occasion...


Again because of Covid, I have to prepare and cook all the food but I am so used to cook for a large crowd so 15 people is a breeze for me.


The first appetizer is a Caprese tomato, basil, mozzarella drizzle in  balsamic & olive oil.


Close view of the Caprese salad.

Because of Covid I had to make individual portion as sharing is not a possibility.


2nd appetizer is a poached shrimps with lemon juice, olive oil, avocado, cucumber, and chopped parsley.


Practicing distancing so there is only 2 people per table.




A toast to the newly wed!

Mimosa to go with the appetizers.


The3rd dish is a Hamachi with ponzu sauce.


Here I am in the kitchen putting together the 4th dish with is a combination of caramelized onion quiche and served with an asparagus soup.


Close look at the onion quiche and the asparagus soup.



The 5th dish is baked penne with eggplant and Italian sausage.

I figure that up to this point all the dishes were pretty light so adding a pasta will definitely fill up your belly.

6th and final dish is roasted guinea fowl legs with cauliflower puree & sautéed broccolini.


Bon appetit everyone!


Lunch is over and it is time to bring out the wedding cake.


The cake

Fro the wedding cake, I made a Berry crème frâiche cake.


Decorated the cake with fresh Peonies since I am not that great at piping.


The cake turned to be stunning with the fresh peonies.

It was such a hot day but thank god we set up all the tables in the shade.

Congrats to the Newly wed!
