hello everyone! my brother is getting married next year. as the family cook and resident taster, he's asked me to help him find a caterer, which is choosing to be more difficult than i thought! i've done about 6 tastings now and i'm wondering - how indicative is the tasting of what you're going to get on the day of? specifically, i've met with a bunch of companies with great reputations but the tastings had technical issues - i.e., overcooked fish, undercooked cheese sauce where i could taste the flour, overcooked beef, overly salty sauces, salads wilting because they're drowning in an overly acidic vinaigrette. my sister says that if the tasting isn't perfect, then forget about it. i know from personal experience that everyone can have a bad day... i'd love to hear from the professionals out there cheers!
