Usually starts with a few canapés with drinks when guests arrive, allowing people to meet and mingle and be surprised by each delicious thing that is passed around by waiters.
Dinner is served buffet style – a generous spread of beautiful platters, typically one or two “Mains” and 3 or 4 accompanying vegetable dishes or salads which are easy to eat from a smaller dinner plate with a fork.
Desserts typically take the form of an assortment of bite-sized treats which provide the perfect sweet bite to end the meal and to facilitate more dancing and partying!

How it works
We send you a menu and cost estimate for the party you require. You make decisions on the number of guests and the menu you would prefer. After we have discussed your choices, we send you a Confirmation Menu and Quotation/Invoice. You pay us a 50% deposit, we secure your date and then we are all go!
On the day
We do all preparation for our parties in our own kitchen at The Kitchen.
We arrive 1.5 hours before the event (or more, depending)
On site, we do plating, garnishing etc. and serve from whatever facilities are available to us.
We can arrange drinks and hiring at your request.
We could even host your party at The Kitchen.
I work with a group of professional waiters and barmen (who I have worked with for 15 years) who take care of drinks and service.
My own team of kitchen staff prepare the party and then serve it on site. They are superb!
