For our latest dinner party we were lucky enough to be booked for a Hen Party at the lovely converted farm buildings that are Mocketts Farm. They are part of the Burden Bros empire on the Isle of Sheppey. The area around the property is still farmed traditionally by the family with their own Cows and Sheep grazing the land. The area is also great for wild game, which is often on the menu at The Ferry House Inn just up the road.
Our clients wanted a simple menu for this event. So for starter we made a lovely prawn cocktail, given a twist with smoked paprika and a salad of mango and radishes. Main course was more traditional being roast chicken with fondant potatoes, braised cabbage, heritage carrots and celeriac puree. Dessert was vanilla cheesecake with crystalized ginger, rhubarb compote and marshmellows.
The facilities in the farm house were great to work in and the dining room was a bright airy space.
Hope to be back soon.
