Food, drink, and great company are what weddings are all about. I spent weeks thinking about who would cater my wedding, what drinks would be unforgettable, and who I would invite. My now husband of 10 years and I spent countless hours and arguments deciding what experience we would give our guests.

At last we landed on our favorite Indian restaurant who catered non-traditional wedding fare full of delicious chicken curry, lentils, basmati rice, nan and a lamb biryani. Our guests were a little surprised, but after having the first taste they couldn’t say enough about the vendor and wanted to know where they could go for more. For drinks, we took it island-style with fresh mojitos; we were in Georgia, in the summer, and my father had what seemed to be an endless supply of mint growing in his garden. The selection of food and drinks were a hit.

Sustainability and Monterey Bay Food Tours

As a mother of four, I have a responsibility to leave behind a world in which the next generation can live and enjoy the way we have been lucky enough to. After moving to Monterey and deciding to start Monterey Bay Food Tours, I have tried to incorporate partners who share this vision, are environmentally conscious, and want to preserve the beauty the Central Coast has to offer.  

Revival Ice Cream, one of our original partners, epitomize this ideology sourcing their products locally from the likes of MEarth, a middle school garden sharing the vision with future generations. Revival uses re-usable tasting spoons and sells re-usable stainless steel pints that get you a $2 discount on pint refills. All of their cleaning products are 100% natural as their philosophy includes “living within the resources of the planet without damaging the environment now or in the future.”
