Oakville Conference Centre

24 May

Oakville Conference Centre, 2515 Wyecroft Road, Oakville, Ontario

Over the Victoria Day long weekend, I attended a wedding reception at the Oakville Conference Centre located near Toronto, Canada. One of the many highlights of the evening was the exceptional food that was offered.  The evening began with cocktails and a buffet style antipasto table. Followed by a three course meal and then in the wee hours of the night, there was a self-serve dessert and snack bar.

At the bar, I tried a Cesear which wasn’t too thick and quite tasty.

At the antipasto table, there were a wide variety of savoury cured meats, delicious pickled artichokes, pungent cheeses, unique crackers, lightly seasoned pasta salads and grilled fresh vegetables.

Before the three course dinner began, a server arrived at our table and asked for any special dietary needs or allergies.  The starter was a noodle and vegetable soup which tasted homemade to me.  The main course were tender slices of beef topped with a dark rich peppercorn sauce and  asparagus, potatoes and zucchini. The option of a garden salad and poached salmon was also available. The vegetables in the salad were fresh and crisp with a perfect amount of dressing. For dessert, there was frozen ice cream wrapped in a crêpe served with berries. Coffee and tea were offered at the end our meal.

Later in the evening, an assortment of colourful desserts came out. The miniature squares and swirls were homemade by the groom’s mother while the cakes and cream puffs were ordered in by the conference centre.

It was an amazing night filled with pretty dresses, smiling faces, a live band, whimsical decorations and  beautiful food.
