It’s our utmost pleasure to cater for people’s weddings – we get to meet fantastic people and see wonderful venues. It’s amazing how differently people decide to celebrate their nuptials. This year we have done a wedding at Exeter Museum which was great! A young, fun wedding among the fossils and exhibits! Very unique and exciting.
The other day we went to a stunning house overlooking Bantham beach for a small, intimate, waitress served 3-course meal. We had two fantastic staff work with us to serve the food and drink. We made rare Devon wood pigeon with Fungi Futures gourmet oyster mushrooms and local salad leaves or roast organic squash soup with local yoghurt swirl for starters. The mains were herby nut crumbed, locally caught lemon sole with a homemade salsa verde, slow cooked free-range pork belly with apple saffron puree or gardeners pie; spring local veg in a white wine sauce topped with puff pastry served with seasonal roast root veges, braised red cabbage and creamed leeks – lovely seasonal and local accompaniments! The desserts were rich chocolate torte with rhubarb compote and clotted cream or blood orange cheesecake.
The atmosphere was lovely – the decorators had made the dining room really beautiful and the 29 guests enjoyed the flowing wine, candlelight and conversation.
It feels like such a privilege to provide food for people on their special day. It makes it all the more wonderful when we have the kind of response we had the other day – the bride and groom told us that the meal was the best wedding food that some of their guests had ever had! We can’t wait for the other weddings booked this year at various venues in South Devon, with different styles of ceremony, food service, decor, flower arrangements and dresses.
