When planning a Mexican themed wedding, we called upon our friends from abroad. One of our staff had been living in the southern USA and Mexico for a brief period and made friends with a Mexican chef named Robert. We had a few skype calls during which he generously gave us some recipes. With his tuition and some practice, we managed to produce an amazing meal which was enjoyed by 100 guests in an old woolshed in North Canterbury.

The mains were supported by Mexican coleslaw (red cabbage, grated carrot, mustard, pumpkin seeds and lime juice. Mexican refried beans and stir-fried chilli corn with parsley and garlic. There were other dishes for Kiwi guests wanting to feel a little more at home. The old woolshed venue and creative food came together to make a most successful evening.
