Cooking with Alison

Alison and John’s Wedding Menu

In Random on December 7, 2015 at pm

Hi everyone,

I’m sorry that I haven’t written in a while. I got married in September, 2015, and am still dealing with some health issues. I have lots of recipes that I can’t wait to share with you. Hopefully, I’ll be able to soon.  In the meantime, I wanted to share our wedding menu. John and I hired the best Chinese caterer in Toronto, ON – Dragon Dynasty Catering – to cook a 10-course meal for our guests (menu below). There was also a 10-course Chinese vegetarian option and a 4-course kids meal. The photos below were taken at the tasting. (For more wedding photos, check out my instagram account @cookingwithalison)
