In just a year from now, I’m not only marrying the love of my life, but I’ll be eating like a king.
Tonight, my fiance and I had our food tasting from the wedding caterer, except this time I asked if we could do something a little unorthodox. We told our friend Corey Lorenco, the owner of On The Go Restaurant in Mattapoisett if we could get our food to go so we could bring it home to try rather than eat at his establishment.
I feared he would be insulted, but he said it was not a problem and kept our food piping hot for us to pick up.
Just to make you drool, here’s a weird food flex for the choices we had the company chef up for us:
- Tenderloin Tips
- Brisket Mac & Cheese
- Baked Stuffed Haddock with Homemade Lobster Sauce
- Garlic Mashed Potatoes
- Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Maple Bacon Sauce
- Seasonal Harvest Salad with Apples, Pecans, Oats, and Cheddar Cheese
Here’s the reasoning behind asking to bring the food home and to be quite honest, I think all venues should allow this.
- There’s no judgment between you or the chef if there’s something you might not like
- There’s no pressure or time limit on how slow or fast you eat (even if you shoveled down as we did)
- It’s a more comfortable atmosphere
- It helps anyone who lives a busy life or time restraint
- You can wear your stretchy/comfy pants and no one will judge you
We not only loved the food that was cooked for us, but we got to enjoy it together with a little bit of privacy in the comfort of our own home. That statement alone should seal the deal for anyone getting ready to tie the knot.
