We're having our tasting this upcoming Friday and I'm not quite sure what to expect in terms of food portions lol. We're sampling 2 soups, 2 salads, 2 entrees, and of course the cake! Ours is scheduled for 5 PM and I was wondering if we'll eat enough food to count it as a meal. The reason I'm asking is my parents are coming in from out of town and will be joining my FI and I at it. When I spoke with the pastry chef, she mentioned she would provide boxes for the cake samples if we were too full from the meal tasting to eat it then (which implies to me the portions will be more than adequate). But seeing as it would be a Friday night, I'd like to have reservations for somewhere just in case. FI has already scoffed at the idea of the tasting counting as a "meal."
I know the tasting experience will vary widely from venue to venue, but I was curious to hear about past experiences from you ladies. For the record, our reception is going to be held at the PGH Golf Club in Squirrel Hill.
