To keep things informative but fun, our instructor arranged for the last class to include a tasting of foods from around the world. Each student made and shared a favorite dish representing her own heritage, with one simple catch. It had to be a food that could be easily served during a wedding reception. As an Irish-Italian, there were tons of delicious options that initially came to mind, but in the end, I went with a tried and true, and relatively simple, recipe – bruschetta.
Not only is bruschetta incredibly tasty, but it’s also one of my favorite cocktail hour foods because it’s so easy to eat with your hands and is a great vegetarian option. All in all, I loved this class, especially since blending traditions when coordinating a wedding is now important to me for another reason. But I’ll save that announcement for next time…
What are your favorite cocktail hour foods, and what’s your favorite dish from your own culture?
