For our Wedding this Summer, Sami and I knew we were going to mainly serve Indian food, and because of that choice we knew there is only one possible option -- The Host. While both of us have dined at The Host many times, and many of those times were catered dinners, however, neither of us has had been involved with arranging a grand affair akin to a wedding. We didn't know what to expect from a tasting or a menu selection, yet we knew that food was one of the most important components for each of us. When we contacted Mrs. Archana Sethi, we had a good feeling of what we wanted in terms of the meat to veggie ratio, but not much else. We also have a few standard favourites, but knew we were willing to discuss and explore new ideas. She made the process so relaxing and heard in great detail what we wanted of this spread. As soon as we started discussing the meal and the dish styles for both our Ceremony and Reception, we immediately felt at ease. She made some super cool recommendations for our ceremony lunch, that we could hardly wait to try out. I for one, almost wanted to participate as a guest at my own wedding to get the full lunch experience! Haha! While we received so many compliments for the whole wedding, we received by far and wide the vast majority of compliments for the food. Namely, the interesting ensemble of Mumbai street food at our lunch, the various stations we had, as well as the fusion combinations of kale chaat papri on bamboo boats and manchurian cauliflower (that I sadly missed out on). I got to try my favourite Indian rice pudding and as always it was incredible, so flavourful, and comforting. We're so glad we went with The Host for the most important day of our lives!
