Congratulations to the lovely bride Alicia and her winsome husband Ghassan! I was gleefully enchanted to be part of a memorable ceremony in an ideal location (Sursock palace Ashrafieh) with an outstanding setting, a spectacular decoration a peachy atmosphere and most importantly a pleasingly rich and luscious dinner catered by Cat&Mouth…
Generally speaking, during weddings, one’s attention is usually focused on the decoration and atmosphere since the dining experience expectations are moderate to low… Notwithstanding, I couldn’t avoid focusing on the food and had no critics at all! Thumbs up Cat&Mouth!
Starting with the welcome drink, i had a lychee-raspberry rose cocktail with carrots, cucumbers, a few vegetable chips and 3 thyme rolls!
The dinner consisted of the following:
Finely crusted warm goat cheese with sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts
Al dente asparagus with a trio of avocado shrimps, salmon tartar and hamour beetroots mix! A succulent trio!
Although i’m not a big fan of meat, i had two pieces all along with carrots and green beans!
From a large extended array of succulent deserts i went for the fruitful choice and customized my favorite desert that’s a coulis of red fruits with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and biscuits (supposedly biscuit crumbles)….
That’s what i’d call occasional eating 😉 Those who follow my blog can tell that I don’t eat that much every night… It happens to indulge from times to times specially on a occasions like best friends’s weddings 😉 Cheers again to the happy couple!
