Our Tuscan wedding feast

I’ve shown you the photos of our wedding in Tuscany already so today I’m going to show you the photos of our wedding feast. My sister-in-law was kind enough to be my food photographer for the evening. These photos are of the plates we were each served but along with them would be a big bowl of seconds for the table to share. There was so much food we had plenty left over for lunch the next day (when it tasted just as delicious). The wedding cake may not be what we are used to seeing in the UK/US but it tasted amazing which in my book is what counts. The sponge was so light and moist  (not like any cake I have eaten before) and there was a custard/cream layer with chocolate chips in it (and some type of alcohol). The cook for the night had bought the cake so wasn’t able to tell me much about it so I can’t tell you much more either but trust me it was good!

To start with we had Bresaola with rocket salad and Parmesan cheese, prosciutto with melon, Capri salad with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, Melanzane alla parmigiana РAubergines baked with Parmesan cheese (not shown) and bruschetta with tomatoes. Next we had the primi courses which were lasagna and florentine-style cr̻pes with ricotta and spinach.

This was followed by two secondi courses. The first was a delicious salmon en croute style dish with a mixed salad.

This was followed with Tuscan style style roast loin of pork with roast potatoes.

The final course was a tradition style wedding cake and a tray of mini pastries.


Our wedding in Tuscany

Since I wrote so much about planning our wedding in Tuscany and how it has kept me from blogging as much as previously, I thought it was only fair that I share some photos with you.

These first two photos above were taken by me on the morning of the wedding. The rest was taken by the very talented Domenico Costabile.

The food for the meal at the reception was fantastic (as was of the food we ate in our two weeks in Tuscany). I hope to post some photos of the meal sometime next week (of course I didn’t pick up my camera that evening but my sister-in-law very kindly became a food photographer for the night!). I also plan to write a post on the food in general during our trip and the special places we stayed/visited.
