Yesterday (Tuesday 22 July) Harbour & Jones Events teamed-up with St Paul’s Cathedral for an invite only preview of its first ever street food concept for conferences and events – Street Eats. Guests included Tamesis Dual Ltd, E2E Events, Aviation Media, essDocs and Borough Market.
Available for a September 2014 to March 2015, event bookers will have the opportunity to either have their own night market in the Cathedral’s magnificent Crypt or create an alternative daytime conference in the Wren Suite. The concept has already created large amounts of interest with a waiting list for some key dates.
The preview showcased street food stalls including Korean Yum Bun, with steamed buns filled with a choice of sticky ginger and chilli salmon, slow roast Gloucester Old Spot pork belly with spices and kimchi, as well as sliders including home cut beef burgers with stilton and caramelised onion, and burnt mackerel and caviar tartare. Chefs carved Cumbrian air-dried ham from the bone for guests while they tucked into a whole host of English cheeses, chutneys and freshly made breads.
Taking place in the Cathedral’s Wren Suite, bright hues of red, pink and orange washed the bare stone walls, complimented by matching flowers, while a live band entertained guests with upbeat twists on classic funk and pop.
The Beehive room gave guests an early taste of Christmas, with pudding dishes from St Paul’s Christmas menu including – Christmas pudding set cream with burnt sugar and brandy sauce bubbles, apple tart fine with Calvados ice cream and Caramelia chocolate with textures of clementine.
Suppliers included Lavender Green, Event Concept, Ash Productions, Velvet Living and music by Phoebe Gorry Trio.
