With all this horrible wet and windy weather its hard to believe in just a few months we will be catering in the Summer Sunshine for our excited 2020 couples! Here are just a few of my favourite summer pics form 2019!
Saturday saw us catering for Jill & Bob at City Church in St Albans. We served a delicious three course wedding breakfast starting with a Salad of seared duck breast, pancetta, watercress, pink grapefruit, honey and lavender dressing; followed by Braised blade of Beef, fondant potato, broad beans, peas, green beans, baby spinach. A trio of desserts completed the meal consisting of Sticky toffee, salted caramel sauce; Blackberry Eton mess, vanilla shortbread and a Chocolate orange pot, ginger bread. Fantastic compliments from the guests about the food and a great day had by all.
Friday night we worked with @eventsinc at Shendish Manor catering for a Chinese themed belated Christmas Party! Great night fun evening, no sign of anyone doing Dry January here!
It’s hard to choose what to have for your main wedding breakfast . . . it’s such a huge decision, with lots of different dietary requirements these days, and certain family and friends not eating certain things, it can feel like the hardest decision of all!
So to help you through this dilemma, we offer an individual complimentary tasting with you both, here at our kitchens to help. This also gives you time to meet the team and for us to discuss the logistics of your day and advise if necessary.
I always feel the main place to start is with what you would both choose at your favourite restaurant and work from there. Remember its your day and your guests are there for you, so choose for yourselves! We ask you to pick a few starters, mains and desserts to try, then we can work from there. Our experienced chefs will advise on selections that work well together and will adapt anything to suit your individual requirements.
We have lots of our 2020 couples due in for tastings over the next 2 months, we can’t wait to meet them and start working with them towards their most special day!
Here is some inspiration from last summer . . .
Final week of Christmas events for us. Large joiner parties at Venue 360, lots of buffet lunches and a beautiful wedding at North Mymms Park for David and Alice. Over 3,500 guests fed during December has kept our kitchens busy and all our staff working hard.
North Mymms Park is a new venue for us and to finish our busy December there was a real treat. David and Alice arrived to Champagne and canapés in the stunning house and then walked through the gardens to the stunning marquee with glasses of mulled wine in the winter sunshine.
A three course wedding breakfast of twice baked goats cheese souffle to start, followed by Lamb Shank with buttered mash and honey roasted roots, with a trio of desserts to finish. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate completed the meal. Wonderful heart felt speeches and a version of the 12 days of Christmas led by David and Alice set the atmosphere for the evening. A great day had by all, a pleasure to be part of.
Our busy 2nd week of Christmas saw us at Venue 360 for the Vauxhall Pensioners Dinner, at Spirella for the Knights Templar Prom. We have catered for the last few years at both of these events, its so lovely to be invited back to cater again. We were also at Venue 360 for a 260 guests joiner party and lots of other drop off buffets left the busy kitchen complete with many mince pies and festive treats!
Our busy 1st week of Christmas saw us at two Christmas parties at Court Garden House in Marlow, along with a private party; two Christmas parties at Venue 360 and a Christmas party for Simply Education in The Grand Hall in Bronham! With menus covering not just traditional turkey dinner and Christmas puddings but Salmon with Nicoise salad, Red onion, thyme and beetroot tart tatin, After Eight Mint Brownies and Chocolate Orange Tartlets. The team worked hard and the result was lots off happy well fed festive guests!
