That’s what you get for shoplifting I guess, you are destined to be a reception clerk at a wedding caterer in Bowmanville.

We went with the future in-laws to King’s Court Catering and I really have to say up front, bravo for the Yorkshire Pudding appetizers. We arrived and were ushered into a kind of old industrial mill type building with whitewashed walls and a couple of tables set up for serving the hot food. There was also the largest chocolate fountain I have ever seen with various dipping items just waiting for me to stick my head into. We started off with oyster shooters, that is an oyster in Clamato juice with flavoured salt around the rim. There was also a fried wonton wrapper with some kind of seasoned choped meat on it which was very tasty. They also had 3 dips, a tzatziki, a roasted red pepper and a hummous which were all fine as far as dips go. Then it was through to the main course area, where a nervous looking kid served us some Prime Rib (which actually looked like plain roast beef to me) with au jus and the aforementioned Yorkie bombs. I call them that because they were tiny Yorkies with a rolled up piece of beef in them, filled with au jus. Wow! Tasty!

There were other hors d’oeuvres, plenty of little pastry things like sausage rolls, veggie samosas and jerk chicken rolls but none compared. We tried the chicken along with the choice of 3 sauces and by this time with several Yorkies in me I was starting to slow. I did try the cherry cheesecake but I am really not a big desert person so I went back and snuck another Yorkie for good measure.

The food was pretty good, I would say good quality for a wedding, nothing to blow your socks off, but then again, we don’t have $10,000 to spend on food… Of course I dipped a few marshmallows in the chocolate fountain which was very good and I also was pleasantly surprised by the punch which was light and refreshing.

Another item off the list, I am now searching for more caterers willing to fill me up for free!
