  |  By Alison McGill


Today marked day five A World of Weddings week on Canada AM. Over the past week I presented ideas for a multicultural celebrations, touching on everything from traditions, to fashion, gifts, food and inspiring ideas.


Canada AM Day 4 & 5: Food & Merging Cultural Ideas

Yesterday our focus was food and choosing dishes for your celebration that reflected your culture. Here are a few things we highlighted:

Chinese: Roast suckling pig served with jellyfish and seaweed; sweet lotus buns.

Indian: Vegetarian curries and chutneys served with rice and naan bread.

Russian: Borscht soup, potato pancakes topped with smoked salmon and caviar.

Greek: Spanokopita, sourdough coin bread, bittersweet Jordan “Koufeta” candied almonds.

A HUGE thank you to Toronto’s Daniel et Daniel who provided all the wonderful food for us; Flour Studio for the sweet floral arrangements; and Weddingbells’ Contributing Editor Catherine Doherty for styling everything to look so fantastic! Today, for our final segment, I answered some viewer emails and also brought along a show and tell table highlighting ways that you can bring your culture into various wedding day elements. More thank yous to the following:

Cakes: Susan Trianos for Bonnie Gordon School of Cakes.

Flowers: Flour Studio.

Stationary: Paper Ideas (red Chinese-inspired ones); Wedding Paper Divas (green Irish-inspired ones).

Blue Items: Shoes, Kate Spade at Davids; earrings and necklace, Fashion Crimes.

Thank you Canada AM, we had a wonderful time on the show! Can’t wait to do it all again sometime soon.
