How To Have A Micro Wedding

Over the past few months, our lives and the way the entire world operates has evolved into something so unprecedented and unpredictable that planning just about anything is near futile. Due to the seriousness of Covid-19, our industry has faced several challenges from closures of our stores to the cancellation of events. With that said, our province has endured and we are slowly moving into phases that allow us to operate again. We know how important it is for you to tie the knot. And, as the old saying goes, “The show must go on!” When it comes to having your wedding, is it not just as relevant and applicable? 

With current restrictions in place, our culinary team has been able to pivot by welcoming any and every request pertaining to Micro Weddings. If this concept is new to you, I invite you to read on.

Celebrate The Lights With Us

Hey, Vancouverites! It’s back! Our annual summer tradition of relaxing on the beach and spectating the amazing fireworks display competing countries have to offer is just around the corner. If you haven’t heard, this year we are graced by the presence of India, Croatia, and our national heroes: Canada! Of all the activities we have to do this summer, I’m sure you would agree that catching the sunset on a nice patio, then watching the fireworks display is at the top of your list. What gets me even more excited is that we at Truffles Fine Foods is back!

The Hottest Lounge in Vancouver

With one of the best seats near the beach featuring the closest views of the fireworks, the Truffles Fine Foods team has partnered up with Concord Pacific to offer patrons an unforgettable experience at the Concord Lounge. Located at the famous Inukshuk near English Bay, the lounge opens nightly on the three nights of the fireworks display. It will feature live music, complimentary drinks, a delicious BBQ from locally sourced ingredients, and an unparalleled view of the waterfront so you can take in every firework that dots the night sky.

How To Plan Your Wedding Reception

Celebrity chef and Food Network host, Guy Fieri was once quoted saying: “Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat.” I cannot agree more. And, when it comes to a wedding, the meal served at your reception is what all your guests look forward to – after the ceremony, of course.

The reception is the time and place where friends and family gather, chatter amongst themselves, share stories and fond memories of you, and have many laughs over the speeches delivered. What stands out the most, however, with any reception is the meal (barring any embarrassing stories, of course). I have been to several weddings where the food quality ranged from amazing to mediocre – and those impressions are what guests take away from their night. If they leave hungry, or something tasted off, you’ll hear about it for years to come! To prevent this from happening at your reception, allow me to propose Truffles Fine Foods.

The 2018 Celebration Of Light

It goes without saying that it has become an annual summer tradition when thousands of Vancouverites descend upon the beaches surrounding English Bay to witness the magical show of pyrotechnics. Every year, several countries compete against one another in a spectacle of fireworks, choreography, and music. From the end of July to the first week of August, our city will, once again, be experiencing the extravagance of the Celebration Of Light by welcoming teams from South Africa, Sweden, and South Korea!

A Celebration Of Food

This year, much like the previous years, Truffles Fine Foods has been chosen as the exclusive caterer for the Concord Lounge – a relaxed atmosphere located at the iconic inukshuk on the peninsula at English Bay. This social setting will feature a live DJ, private bar, and fresh summer barbeque eats featuring locally-sourced produce. Tickets are limited, so we encourage you to purchase your ticket(s) today! If you are planning to go with a group of friends, reserved table tickets are also available.

Alternatively, there are several other features available around English Bay for you to enjoy the festivities. Whether you want to catch the show on the beach for free, or pay a little extra for your own private seat, there are plenty of opportunities for you to celebrate the fireworks your own way.

Sticking to this year’s fireworks theme of “Love” (as voted on by Vancouverites), we absolutely love cooking delicious, delectable food. We hope you have the opportunity to visit us at the Concord Lounge and enjoy in the gastronomic experience we guarantee to deliver. If not, have no fear!
