We were approached by the Honest Group, London event planners of some repute, to cater this 10th anniversary party in The Drury Club, Drury Lane. One of the company’s directors was a member of an international dining club with a background in the food industry, so absolutely no pressure to deliver on this one. We set up a massive field kitchen in an underground car park at the rear of the club and had 25 waiting staff ferrying food into the throngs for about three hours. As an indication of how well it went, we were asked to cater for their private, international dining club about six months later!Read More
This event was all secret squirrels and hush hush, which was very exciting and a real feather in our cap. It was also the biggest single event we had done to date, a banquet lunch for 1000 guests featuring a BBQ station, big paella pan action, salad bar and pudding station. We collaborated with the London Log Company and Jamie Oliver’s Barbecoa chefs on the BBQ which was truly inspiring and spurred me on to invest in some serious BBQ kit for Bread and Flowers. It was a milestone for us, but it went off like clockwork and they were very happy bunnies.
It was a great honour to be asked to cater for Mario Testino’s OBE award celebration in January 2014. He’d experienced our food at the Vogue Christmas party we catered a few months earlier and demanded we cater his event. It’s always great to be back working in London and I bumped into quite a few old fashion mates on the night who put their heads into the kitchen. Mario is a complete star and so generous with his time, he kept us all entertained for 20 minutes, regaling us with stories from his career. We laughed all the way back to Wiltshire.Read More
