Food by Chef in Miami

It is likely that the one thing that can REALLY ruin a foodie’s wedding is, obviously, bad food. Last Sunday, on the happiest day of my life so far, Chef Lars provided my guests with wonderful food and service, so I felt it was my duty to write this post.

His right hand and coordinator, was wonderful since the first day I met her, she went out of her way to get me a combination of table sizes so that I could have the exact rectangles I wanted, she helped me choose beautiful linens and most of the china choices were included in the quoted price, which, if you have been searching for a caterer, you know everything is an upgrade. They communicated with me for months and offered to help me with errands, and gave recommendations for all other services I needed. They gave me an incredible price that included all alcohol….no limits.

On that day, she managed to make me smile and feel completely comfortable. They worked with high efficiency, the tables looked wonderful, the wait staff was sooooo nice and finally the food was fantastic. They started with a cocktail reception in the beautiful Spanish monastery gardens of passed tapas and white and red sangria. The tapas included high quality meats and cheeses, gazpacho in cucumber cups and tapenades. The presentation was great and the service incredible. My guests kept saying how they always had a waiter right there with food for them. When the paella came out, it came with a side of vegetarian paella and chicken paella for my allergic and/or vegetarian guests, fried garbanzos with chorizo, a Spanish omelet, organic greens and roasted vegetables. When I saw the beautiful paella I almost cried. One of my guests and good friend is a foodie from Spain, so I said jokingly “Do not tell me if it is not to your standards ok? It won’t be fair”. A while later he walks by me with a second plate of food and says “I plan to eat a third one”, and he did! Wine kept coming, there was so much champagne and great liquors. It was a dream come true, a fairy tale, and I just can’t thank them enough.

The cake was made by Todo Dulce in Miami as well. Instead of buttercream or fondant she used Swiss meringue and it was DELICIOUS. EVERYONE had a compliment for it. Chef Lars served the most amazing spiced coffee with the cake and no one could stop dancing and smiling. If you are getting married in Miami, or have any other special occasion coming soon, I tell you, you will love these people.
