They later confessed that they thought that the chef would have chosen some dishes from the list they sent...but NO. My caterers, Siitz, El Convento, are great with me and treat my clients incredibly well....Chef Arlene went wild and prepared the WHOLE THING....I AM TALKING ABOUT MORE THAN 18 COURSES and the most amazing thing of all, is that they were not even tasters portions.....THEY WENT ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!! ONE DISH PER PERSON..............FULL SIZE!!!!!!! Jay, the groom to be, was ecstatic! He ate and ate and ate....BIG time!!!!
I usually offer the food tasting for free. And my vendors back me up because they know that when I do this, it is because I am 99.9% sure that the couple will end up staying with them....This is something that Karen and Jay were really impressed with...they ate a king's banquet and paid zilch for it!!!
However, this time my 99/9% certainty began to fade as I saw more and more food come. I started getting nervous! What if all this food will simply overwhelm my clients? I kept looking at Karen struggling with every bite....we even noticed Jay's shirt button starting to, let's say: S T R E A C H .................. Luckily, they did not freak out as I feared would happen....And now......I must say that their guests are surely in for one incredible treat!
Moral of the experience: make sure you do not eat for a few days before going to a food tasting with Diana Sciarrillo, from I Do, Guatemala!
