Battle of the Cusine

This past weekend the final cratering decision was made! It was very hard to choose between the last two contenders.

The first tasting was on Friday and was attended by my Mom, JJ and me. We sat out on a patio overlooking a marina. We started with shrimp cocktail, mini crab cakes, scallops wrapped in bacon and spinach & cheese tarts. It was all so good! I'm very excited about the crab cakes.... I mean what would a Maryland wedding be without one?

The next course was a delicious Tuscan spiral cut chicken and beef tenderloin. The presentation was lovely and the flavor was even better!

Then we sampled dishes that will be available in the pasta station. Oh and the grilled vegetables!

All in all everything from Ken's Creative Kitchen was delicious, beautifully presented and we really liked our event manager. Jamie is extremely helpful and is quick to make suggestions if needed or asked for.

We also sampled our last cake vendor Friday night. We had red velvet cake and carrot cake with cream cheese icing. Also, vanilla and chocolate cake with butter cream icing.

All this food talk is making me hungry!!!

Monday was the last tasting at Tapenade in Edgewater. Two bridesmaids, JJ and I had the best breakfast we've had in a long time.

We started with a hot spinach and artichoke dip with fresh french bread! That was followed by shrimp cocktail, mini crab cake and scallops wrapped in prosciutto. Oh and the pecan encrusted chicken bites. After the hors d'oeuvres we had a sample of the spring salad and Caesar salad.

Next we had a sample of the pasta station. This included several sauces and toppings. All scrumptious!

Finally we had beef with horseradish or wild mushroom sauce and grilled vegetables.

All in all everything was delicious and I don't think a single guest will go hungry at our wedding. JJ and I really enjoyed this experience. Its nice to have someone interested in getting you exactly what you want! JJ enjoyed it so much he is talking it up to ever person he talks to. I think it I told him this was apart of wedding planning he would have proposed long ago! haha!
