We are always developing new exciting offers for our clients and with the busy autumn winter session fast approaching, the creative minds at Berkeley Events have been busy working on some amazing interactive food stations. These standalone exciting set-ups offer street food ideas that allow guests to help themselves from an array of themed finger and bowl food items, some offer interaction with chef’s with live cooking taking place. Guests can quite simply walk from one station to the next eating as they go.
Three of these menus where selected by a leading media group for a lunch break during a conference for their team from around the world who were in London. So for this event we combined a number of offers and served them Bruschetta with tomato and basil along with a three flavoured gnocchi with Kalamata olives, this station was titled quite simply, “The Italian Job”. Alongside this was a Tex-Mex counter called “Let’s meat again” this came with a build your own slider burger concept, with a selection of relishes and toppings ranging from cheese to our house made corn and cucumber relishes. There was also sweet and spicy Dr Pepper flavoured pulled pork, with mini Brioche buns and some crispy fresh salad garnish. Next to this, we set up a nacho table with warm cheese sauce, salsa, guacamole, sour cream and jalapenos this allowed the guests to pile nachos into small hand held bamboo bowls and top with their own selection. You could hear the South American delegates calling “vamos muchachos!!”
The final station was called “I do like to be beside the sea” this had a mix of seafood delicacies such as bowls of prawns mixed with a rich Mary Rose sauce, blini’s topped with a choice of smoked salmon, smoked trout and gravlax. There were roll mops, homemade potted shrimps and an chilled tuna ceviche along with a mustard and dill potato salad. To top of this stand was a selection of our own sushi selection, an array of sushi rolls such as prawn and tuna nigari, salmon avocado roll, Californian crab roll, Boston shrimp roll, Philadelphia smoked salmon roll, tuna sashimi, salmon ceviche and tataki, served with wasabi, soy sauce, pickled ginger and salad garnish.
Talk to us and we can tell you about some of the others, like a passage to India, down the chippie and poke man to name but few.
The next evening we created a delightful cheese and tapas display for an evening networking session. This saw us piling a table high with a selection of European and English cheese, alongside platters of sliced Parma ham, stuffed piquillo peppers with cream cheese, bocconcini, sun-blushed tomato, spicy herb mixed olives with marinated chargrilled artichoke, aubergine, courgette, peppers and a selection of sliced salami, chargrilled chorizo sausages, tortilla Espanola, roasted pimiento pepper in vinaigrette and zucchini fritters. This really was a Continental affair washed down with ice cold Peroni, Prosecco, Sancerre and Rioja. Not a Brexit discussion was heard.
