Mr. M and I decided to drive up to Montreal since it's only about a 5 or 6 hour drive from where we live. As soon as we got to town, we checked into the hotel where the wedding will be and immediately met with the event manager and chef for an incredible food tasting.
We started off by tasting the canapes that will be served during cocktail hour;

Next up for the tasting were the options for the first course that will be served at the reception (after the green salad). We had a choice between goat cheese and grilled vegetables or smoked salmon served with lettuce/cucumber wrap and a horseradish cream sauce;
|Goat cheese, grilled veggies, arugula, balsamic vinegar and oil|
|Smoked Salmon, lettuce wrapped in cucumbers and horseradish cream sauce|
Last but not lease, the main course! The options were either the grilled Angus beef sirloin served with mashed potatoes and asparagus with a black pepper sauce and the sea bass filet served with polenta and asparagus with a sweet red pepper sauce;

Oh and we had also paired each dish with different white and red wines (our package includes half a bottle of wine per person for dinner). Needless to say I was pretty tipsy by the end of it all!
