Gatecrashing ideas for Chinese wedding

Hihi friends of Hazelnutt House (",) 

Last year when a friend of mine got married, she invited me to be her one of her bridesmaids and my daughter as the flower girl.  Click here, if you wanna take a look at Kiddo's flower girl makeover.   

So, one of my duty as the bridesmaid was to design a menu of exciting dishes for the groom as well as the groomsmen.  The bridesmaids scour the internet for ideas and we finally came up with these four pretty original dishes.  

In the Chinese culture, the groom and his buddies have to eat their way through four (sometimes more) dishes before the groom gets to meet the bride.  

The bridesmaids have to create the dishes with these four elements in mind - sour, sweet, bitter and spicy. 

For the sour dish, we filled plastic champange flutes with apple cider which is truly and awfully sour when you drink it neat.  For the toppers, we made a skewers using rolled up sour candies and lemon slices. 

The sweet dish was simply Lotte Choco Pie  dunked in condensed milk and double dunked in colourful sprinklers. 

For the bitter dish, we coated a marshmellow with 99% Lindt cacao (available in major supermarkets).  The chocolate bar was first melted slowly in a microwave.  To amp up the bitterness of the dish, we tossed in some fresh cranberries that are bitter and tart.   

Lastly, for the spicy dish, we served the men with fried bean curd filled with chilli padi laced with a generous amount of wasabi.  

Thank you for reading, hope this entry comes in handy when you're planning a gate crashing menu for someone's wedding.
