  • Holy guacamole! Actually, there was no guac at our wedding, but there were crazy explosions of flavor at all corners. When it first came to choosing a caterer for our wedding, I was somewhat indifferent. I assumed wedding food is more or less the same. With Barry’s cooking, I couldn’t be more wrong. I just wish he had a restaurant near me so I could enjoy his flavors on a regular basis. My mouth is still watering as I think of the potato fritters, lamb kabobs, jerk chicken, mac and cheese . . .
