We served them canapés and Prosecco in front of the house before moving into the Tipi for a anti-pasti starter, followed by Sirloin of Beef, Crispy Polenta, Rocket Leaves, Vine Tomatoes and Oregano, Parmesan Gnocchi. This was completed with a trio of desserts consisting of Tirimusu in a Shot Glass; a Limoncello Posset and a Ricotta and Pistachio Cheesecake; a lovely menu combining two different cultures beautifully. A great band and the bride singing kept everyone entertained late into the evening. A lovely day for us to be a part of.

Yesterday we catered our first event at Court Garden House in Marlow. A sad affair as it was a funeral but with 200 attendees all with stories of a wonderful man it wasn’t too downbeat. They arrived to tea & coffee and a selection of sandwiches and buffet items from our menus. Lots of great compliments from the guests about the food.
Olivia & Lucas celebrated their wedding day at Lodge Farm on Saturday. A beautiful blessing in the secret garden, followed by receptions drinks and canapés on the terrace. Moving int the Tipi we served sharing platters of Slow cooked pulled pork with stuffing, apple sauce and crackling. Brioche buns, and bowls of greek salad, redslaw, roasted med veg and cajun sweet potatoes made it a great feast for the guests.
