I don't think I could write a blog about food without mentioning a large, somewhat food-centric event that occurred last month - our wedding! Yes, my sweetie Bill and I tied the knot on October 11, in front of 100 family and friends... and lots of fantastic food. The wedding was held at Perona Farms, in Andover NJ. After a wonderful ceremony held under the gazebo, we had the pleasure of the Perona Farms cocktail hour, featuring the world-famous smoked salmon made on site. Of course, there was much more than smoked salmon - everything from scallops and lobster cobbler (oh my) to carving stations, to edible cocktails (fun!), the food, drink and service was outstanding. While I don't specifically remember the food, I do remember everyone telling me how wonderful it was.
After cocktail hour, we moved inside for dinner. We started with a broiled lobster tail and salad, then a choice of entreés, and then finally dessert of wedding cake and assorted treats. Everything was amazing. Bill and I had a great time - I just wish I had a chance to enjoy the food a little more! Luckily, Perona Farms also serves brunch every Sunday, so we can go back and relive that wonderful day.
