In just a year from now, I'm not only marrying the love of my life, but I'll be eating like a king.

Tonight, my fiancee and I had our food tasting with the wedding caterer, except I asked if we could do something a little unorthodox. We told our friend Corey Lorenco, owner of On The Go Fine Foods, Catering and More in Mattapoisett if we could take our food home rather than try it at his place on Route 6.

I feared he would be insulted, but he said it was not a problem and kept our food piping hot for us to pick up.

Just to make you drool, here's what we had the company chef up for us:

  • Tenderloin tips
  • Brisket mac & cheese
  • Baked stuffed haddock with homemade lobster sauce
  • Garlic mashed potatoes
  • Roasted Brussels sprouts with maple bacon sauce
  • Seasonal harvest salad with apples, pecans, oats and cheddar cheese

I think all venues should allow food to be taken home. Here's my reasoning:

  1. There's no awkwardness between you or the chef if there's something you don't like
  2. There's no pressure or time limit on how slow or fast you eat (even if you shoveled down as we did).
  3. It's a more comfortable atmosphere
  4. It helps anyone who lives a busy life
  5. You can wear your stretchy/comfy pants and no one will judge you

We not only loved the food, but we got to enjoy it together with a little bit of privacy in the comfort of our home. That statement alone should seal the deal for anyone getting ready to tie the knot.
