Food Tasting- Love's First Kiss Menu

I ate several delicious meals this past Thanksgiving weekend!  It made me think about the big meal I had at our food tasting so I thought today would be a good day to write about that experience!

I must stress how grateful I was that we were able to do a food tasting before the wedding.  On the day of the wedding I was so full of nerves that food didn't seem very appealing so I really didn't get to eat much of the meal at our reception.   It made me very happy that I was able to enjoy the meal beforehand at the tasting. Make sure to ask your coordinator for a tasting!  I'm so glad we did!

The Food Tasting
Our food tasting had a bit of a shaky start due to an error in the scheduling.  Disney however was able to do their magic to fix the mistake and the Disney chefs that were supposed to be off duty came in just for us and made us an amazing meal in a short amount of time!  It made me feel a little better to know that if something goes wrong Disney does all they can to fix it!  

For the tasting we went into a room where they had a table set just for us! We sat down and looked at the different ways the napkins were folded and picked one for our tables at the reception.  

Then came the food!!!

All the food looked amazing and was delicious!  A different chef came out with each entree to explain the dish.  

We had selected the "Love's First Kiss" plated menu to try.  We were very pleased with it!

We started off with a bread basket but I forgot to take a picture of it at the tasting.  Here's a photo of it from the wedding!

Here are some pictures of each course!

First Course:  Petite Mache, Young Frisee, Sun-dried Cherries, Toasted pecans, with Port Wine Glaze & Shallot- Lime Vinaigrette.

I asked them if they could make the "X" into a heart for the wedding and they said they would try!  I was very excited at the reception when I saw that they did!

Second Course:  Roasted Meyer Lemon Chicken Breast with Garlic Jus, Roasted Garlic Potatoes, Asparagus Spears, Carrots, & Squash.

This was delicious!  All of us ate every bite!  So good!  

Third Course:  Tahitian Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee with seasonal berries.

I LOVED this!  The Creme Brulee turned out to be the food that all our guests told us was their favorite!

Then came the cake!  YUM!

We tried 3 flavors- all cake soaks-- Chambord, Grand Marnier, and Rum...more specifically:

-Vanilla Cake, White Chocolate Mousse Filling, Chambord Soak
-Vanilla Cake, Vanilla Custard filling, Grand Marnier Soak
-Chocolate Cake, Dark Chocolate Mousse Filling, Rum Soak

We all agreed on the same favorite- the one with the Chambord soak!  If I remember correctly, this was the larger tier of the cake, Rum was the top smaller tier, and we decided to have vanilla custard cake for the middle.

The food tasting turned out to be GREAT!  We had a lot of fun and really enjoyed it!  

I'm so thankful for those Disney chefs and staff that made it happen!  They truly did their magic to make us a great meal to try!  

Just Married!

Our wedding was a month and a half ago and it was a wonderful day!

Unfortunately I wasn't able to post my plans on here as often as I'd wanted to.  One of the things I learned was that the wedding planning really does take a lot of one's time.  I didn't have much time for anything else the closer we got to the wedding.  Now that the planning is done I have more time to work on this site. I hope to share what we learned from our experience, share the things we are happy we did, and more!  I just need to get it all organized so stay tuned!

Have a wonderful week everyone!
