Website finally finished!

We have finally finished the website! it now has pictures of all our new food and menus, with great testimonials and new venue information.
We are very pleased with the result, it shows a more personnal side of us, no stock shots here, just genuine pictures taken at actual weddings and events from last year!
I will try and update them with some of the chefs and staff in action over the year, although they are a very outgoing bunch, they do get a bit camera shy!

Buffet with that personal touch

Catering at weddings throughout the summer is fun and very rewarding, being part of someones most memorable day really does have that ‘feel good’ factor!

But equally as rewarding are the funeral wakes we have attended in recent weeks. We offer a personal, professional and discrete catering service for families and their loved ones at a very difficult time.

Recently we catered for a family who had lost their most precious Grandma and the last thing they really wanted to think about was catering for everyone who came back to the house. We arrived, set up the food, catered all the drinks, cleared up and left, taking that stress away. It was something the family had never considered before but were very complimentary of us and glad that they had. Hopefully we will cater for them again in happier circumstances.

This is a sample of what we can offer, a selection of sandwiches, homemade sausage rolls, caramelised onion and goats cheese quiches, mini BLT croissants, followed by chocolate brownies and mini fruit tartlets.

It’s not always about the food!

Yesterday we had the pleasure of meeting Rusty Goffe, he impressed us with his stories of being Gringotts and Goblin in the Harry Potter films and Kabe, Jawa & droid in Star Wars! Ben & John were in their element!

Sausage n mash, fish n chips!

Today we celebrated the life of Gail’s mum, Hollie & Dan’s grandma, from the wedding we catered for in March, not a sober occasion, many people spoke of her love and enjoyment of life! The family gave her a great send off, with champagne, her favourite tipple and a party which I’m sure she was very much part of! Lovely for us, the KF team to be invited back to share such a personal occasion.
We served them bowl food, little bowls, where everyone gets a bowl of each, sausage & creamy mash with leak crisp, Haddock in English Ale Batter, Chips, Tartare Sauce, and Pork Belly, Caramelised Root Vegetables, Apple Sauce. Followed by sweet canapés! Tea and coffee, yum!

Recommended wedding caterer for 2014?

Without being ‘how great are we!’ about us, I want this post to be honest and factual. Of course I’m baised, I event manage the majority of events for Kingfisher and I wouldn’t be in a job if we didn’t get the feedback we have this year!
So what do we do that’s different from other caterers? We take time to get to know our couples? It is so important to treat everyone individually, we do this by a series if meetings, free tastings, and being accessible in the run up to the big day. We spend time finalising the perfect menu for each individual event, no two are ever the same!, and we take the time to prepare and manage to make each couple feel unique! Dan and the kitchen team, john & MJ work so hard and are currently working on new and innovative menus for next season.
As I said I’m baised, but we gave had some great feedback this year from couples, family members and friends, and indeed from those events further bookings. This is just one from last weekend:
Hi Dan,

On behalf of us Tycer’s may I say a massive thank you for all your hard work. Laura was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond making sure everything went to plan once we arrived and did more than we ever expected. Meanwhile, you must have worked your socks off in the kitchen and we have been inundated with compliments on the food. I just wish I could manage to eat it all!!! It truly was wonderful and the food to me was a big part of getting the day right.

We will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.

All the best for your future events.

Mr and Mrs Tycer.

Cheesy maybe? But it follows at trend over the year, our remit works, we hope to continue this into 2014. I see no reason why not, we have great chefs, a good hardworking front of house team and above all, we all love our job, we go to a wedding every weekend!!

This is our new promo leaflet, new menus, pictures from actual events this year, no stock shots here! If you would like one, please contact me

The softer side of us

It can’t always be fun and laughter at weddings for us, I have been distributing our funeral wake flyers this week around Herts, Beds & Bucks. We believe Kingfisher offer a discrete, personal & professional catering option to families at a difficult time. The response I’ve had today from owners and managers has been very optimistic, they felt we had approached the market in the right way and were very happy to promote us.
Our menus include a choice of sandwiches on flavoured breads, finger foods including Thai style chicken, salmon, dill & mascarpone encroute and roasted vegetable & goats cheese tartlets. Also included sweet finger foods such as mini banoffee pies & chocolate & hazelnut brownies. Not your average curly sandwich and sausage roll buffet!!
