The majority of our couples have their receptions in marquees and a few unusual rustic venues / barns as we work with couples who want the flexibility to do exactly what they want with the venue and their food. Cooking fresh food for 100 plus guests in a tent is an acquired skill. It would be easier to prepare and cook it off site however that goes against our principles as fresh food tastes better when it has just been prepared and cooked.
It takes days of planning, researching, meetings, emails/phone calls to come up with unique menus, based on clients experiences and desires.
We have experience of weddings based on clients desires for authentic food from around the world, including Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Thai, Indian, Mexican, Argentinian etc. where we have worked with clients who want authentic food and not a supermarket version of a cuisine.
When you book us for a wedding, once we have a menu developed, we have a tasting with just you, so we can concentrate on establishing exactly what you want from your day.
On the week of your wedding we concentrate on your event only, we do not cater for more than one wedding a week, as it takes most of the week to prepare for a unique wedding and a few days to clear up and recover.
Sharing Wedding Catering
We started sharing style weddings over 10 years ago. Our clients prefer an informal relaxed event with often with whole joints of meat that have been marinated, charcoal and wood smoked, and then served whole on a carving board to each table. Accompanied with a selection of fresh salads so that each guest can choose how much and what they have.
Serving meat this way also allows guests to choose between having their meat rare from the middle of the joint, medium towards the end and well done at the the very ends. As the joints are usually, but not always butterflied and boneless, this does make it easy for them to be carved.
We have used this style for barbeques where we offer a choice of three or four meat fish and vegetarian options at our BBQ’s with bowls of salad on each table. We do not “platter meat” as it is essential to serve food fresh from the bbq to guests so they can choose what they want, and how they like it cooked: some want their salmon or lamb just coloured others want it well done this is not feasible when it served on a platter. We offer a choice of three or four meats fish and vegetarian options so everybody can try everything. Guests are invited a table at a time to choose freshly cooked food from the BBQ.
