Tipis at Lodge Farm

Saturday we catered for Lizzy & Alex and their lovely family at Lodge Farm. A 3 hat Tipi looked stunning in the sunshine. They had their ceremony in the secret garden followed by canapés and Prosecco on the terrace, garden games for the children made it a perfect afternoon.

Moving into the marquee we served them a BBQ of Sticky Maple Boneless Chicken Thighs; Marinated Haloumi And Vegetable; Rosemary, Honey And Garlic Lamb Cutlets and Charred And Glazed Mini Beef Brisket. This was accompanied with Caesar Salad; Homemade Slaw; Baby Potato Salad, Cornichons, Red Onion And Dijon Mayo and Roasted Baby New Potatoes.

Speeches followed and and Ice cream shack before the evening guests arrived. A great DJ got the party going and we served them a full buffet which the guests loved. They choose our Picnic menu which consists of a selection of sandwiches, quiche, chicken liver pate, gammon, cheddar, pork pies, chutneys and pickles.

A great day to be part of and a lovely family to look after.

Weekend Weddings

Last Friday we catered for Sam & Abbie for their big day on their family farm. Being farmers themselves they had plenty of space to hold a massive marquee, with straw bales, tractors and plants in abundance. They arrived to canapés and sloe gin & Prosecco and the sun shone on all their family and friends. Moving into the marquess they chose a hog roast served with apple sauce, stuffing and perfect crackling! This was accompanied with sides of salads and baby new potatoes. It was a delicious feast. Eton Mess with strawberry shortcake completed the meal. Great speeches followed and then they danced the night away to a fantastic band. Lovely couple, a great day to be part of.

Saturday we looked after Lucy & Rob at Hastoe Hall in Tring. They had their ceremony first inside the hall then made their way out into the summer sunshine to be greeted with Margaritas and Prosecco. Kingfisher canapés were also served. Whilst they enjoyed the reception the brilliant Kingfisher team turned the hall round ready for dinning in record time!

We them served them Anti Pasti Board Of Chorizo, Proscuitto, Salami Milano Served With Balsamic Oils, Ciabatta and Sun Blushed Tomatoes, Boccocini, Olive Tapenade & Marinated Roasted Vegetables for Starters.

Wedding Season in full swing!

Kingfisher Caterers

Its been a busy few weeks for the KF crew, Wedding season is in full swing, with weddings at Lodge Farm, Buckingham Railway Centre and Eggington House and Corporate events in their plenty!

Some shots from Katherine & Mike’s Day at Lodge Farm 5th May 2018.

Some pics from Laura & Robert’s Day at Lodge Farm 19th May 2018.

Also on Saturday 19th, Dan & Ian catered at St Michael’s School in St Albans for their first ever Charity Dinner  for 150 guests. With the below feedback we received yesterday, we can hopefully return and help them achieve the same again. Well done team!

The general consensus is that Kingfisher Catering were AWESOME!  The food was fab (I thought it might be): lovely starter, a substantial and warming main and a brilliant pud!  For me though, it was this:

The general consensus is that Kingfisher Catering were AWESOME!  The food was fab (I thought it might be): lovely starter, a substantial and warming main and a brilliant pud!  For me though, it was this:

Went over and beyond to help and make the evening a success.  Examples: helping to switch on the table lights; helping us setup the bar, poring a glass of wine for everyone.Flexibility.  For example, adapting the timings to suit the live auction.Really good service.  Fast, efficient and ran like clockwork.All the staff were friendly, helpful and had a really good attitude.Ian, the Catering Manager, deserves a special mention — really conscientious and proactive.  A huge asset to Kingfisher!

The event was a success and looks like we raised around £2,000 towards the school.  This was helped a great deal by Kingfisher’s special pricing for us, which allowed us keep the ticket prices down to boost numbers.

We’re not sure if we can face annual balls yet, but we very much hope to run an event with Kingfisher again in the future!
