From the country...
So it is not everyday that this country bumpkin makes her way to a fancy wedding in the city... and this one was super special! The August 1st night was beautiful, cool with a light breeze, where we celebrated Miriam and Neil's nuptials with 250 of their closest friends and family. The event was held at the Evergreen Brickworks, which is a pretty exceptional place and the music of the Strumbellas filled the air with their rich folky sound.
And the food, oh my goodness, a true test to all that is local and in season in Ontario made by some of Toronto's best chefs! There was rotisserie lamb from Metheral Farm, grilled chicken from Kawartha Ecological Growers, Fresh Fish from Akiwenzie's Fish, handmade stuffed agnolotti, fresh greens, potato salad, roasted beet salad, and a maple chiffon wedding cake amongst a table of after dinner sweets.Amuse Bouche: a beautiful pickle tray, Monforte cheese gold, mortadella, bresaula, cured duck breast
Congratulations to Miriam and Neil!
