I really do know the right people, and if there's ever anything I need to know about food, then Annie Ko is the woman to ask. She is a brilliant cook and food writer, specialising in Chinese treats and baking and not only runs these workshops but also does specialist catering too.

Recipes and details of where to book workshops are on Annieko.com.
Of course, this is all inspiration for my wedding, and I will be making
some favours that guests can take home if they wish, or just chomp on

I have to tell you, I sampled a couple, and they are delicious! Did put me a point over my WW for the day, but it was worth it.
