Wedding Celebration and Food... Covid-19 era style!

Charles Yu | Sep 14, 202002:08 PM     10

My son and fiancee put their 'wedding plan wheel' in motion as early as late last year. A significant down payment deposit was placed with a wedding planner with a view of having a formal wedding ceremony/banquet sometime late this year. Lord and behold, out of the blue, this Covid pandemic struck, rendering everything into shambles and putting an elaborate wedding plan on hold.

Facing a no-refund policy and fearing the wedding planner might go out of business, decision was made to hold a reduced size, close friend & family only, dinner gathering in order to use up the down-payment deposit!

Following strict rules of the 3W – Wear facemask, Watch social distancing and Wash hands frequently. Under a surprisingly mild late summer day this weekend, a small group of less than 30 souls brave the virus threat and attended a dinner gathering held in a specially designed outdoor patio at ' Berkeley Field Event House ' with the newly-wed as hosts.

Surprising to all, the food was extremely well made and tasted delicious.....very 'restaurant quality' like!

Stand outs were the interesting H'or D'oeuvres, the tender, off-the-bone red wine braised Beef rib and the aromatic, dense and complex tasting Tiramisu dessert. The buttery short- bread crust of the tartlets was commendable too!
