In July we provided food and service for a lovely intimate Wedding celebration in a private house in one of our favourite places, Whitstable. The initial enquiry was for a dinner party for 14 people to celebrate a house warming. As the quotation progressed it turned into a lovely small wedding in a new home. We were given the keys as the house would be empty due to the wedding at the time we needed to arrive to set up. The weather was glorious and so the food was served al fresco.
The starter was our favourite sharing platters. Mezze of grilled vegetables with olives and mozzarella, charcuterie with pate and chutney, smoked salmon with shallots, capers & blinis. All this with green salad and bread & butter. These always seem to be popular as they give lots of choice and create social interaction. The main course was slow braised pork belly with kent cider gravy for the meat eaters, and seared fillet of seabass with braised fennel and tomato salsa. The grooms sister was a vegetarian and was very happy with the moroccan vegetable stew with couscous. No dessert needed as wedding cake was served instead.
Lovely couple, lovely family in lovely Whitstable with our lovely food and service. It was all just so, well lovely.
In October 2017 we were asked to do a wedding at Chilham village hall. The lovely bride and groom, Jess and Rich wanted their favourite meal recreated for their guests. It was a dish inspired by Terre a terre vegetarian restaurant in Brighton.
The meal was a salad of roasted butternut squash with toasted pinenuts, pesto and vegetarian parmesan (Twineham Grange) followed by onion and herb rosti with nutmeg creamed spinach, poached egg, sprouting broccoli and welsh rarebit. For dessert the lovely couple wanted to serve their cake so we cut this for them and displayed with the vegetarian buffet that we prepared.
Then then we provided staff for a free bar where the guests brought their own drinks and we kept things going for 200 guests, it was incredibly busy.
The bride and groom were happy, their guests had a great time, the food and service was fabulous and the venue was just amazing We hope to be back soon.
