I am a self-proclaimed foodie, and one of my favourite past-times while travelling is to try as many new foods as possible. Since I love to eat so much, I am really looking forward to developing the menu for our reception. What better way to kick-start the process than accepting an invitation to The Gourmet Food & Wine Expo? Join me* on my journey through cheese-y delights (literally). Bonus: the fiancé won a prize!
Prior to this event, I had never been to a Food Expo before, so I had no idea what to expect. My imagination ran wild, and for some reason, I envisioned a luxe 1920’s style extravaganza:
The reality was actually much closer to my experience at the wedding conventions Jake and I attended. Now that I think about it, I do not know why I was surprised. After all, it is a convention. I think the “gourmet” really threw me off. It just goes to show you that there really is power in words!
Have you ever been to a food and wine expo? How did you enjoy it?
Side note: How on Earth is our wedding only 6 months away!? It really is no joke, once the one-year countdown begins, the days just fly by.
