Introducing our Pudding Wall

Posted on: June 30th, 2016 by chandco

 

We unveiled our new pudding wall concept at ‘Eat the Rainbow’ showcase at 41 Portland Place

On Wednesday 22nd June 2016, we held a showcase dinner at 41 Portland Place to unveil a new event food concept. Forty of some of our industry’s most prestigious events professionals arrived at the central London Grade II listed townhouse to feast on a rainbow-inspired menu cooked by our talented chefs and discover a much anticipated surprise for pudding…

We began the evening on the outdoor terrace with canapés of crab disguised as mini apples, chicken liver parfait in the form of baby oranges and creamy mozzarella made to look like cherry tomatoes, washed down with peach bellinis and rosewater and pomegranate martinis.

Guests were then led to the dining room, serenaded by a DJ and saxophone fusion playing contemporary house music, and seated at long tables adorned with flowers in all shades of the rainbow. An amuse bouche of bright orange carrot and coriander gazpacho served in a shot glass was followed by a yellow starter of roasted yellow pepper, endive, pickled yellow carrots, burrata, and yellow pepper jus. The main was purple themed, featuring slow cooked cannon and shoulder of lamb, beetroot puree, roasted baby beets, purple potato cubes and crispy purple kale.

Having eaten their way through the rainbow course by course, guests moved through to the John Newsom-Davis Council Chamber for the grand finale – a 2 by 2.5 metre edible pudding wall. A colourful structure with integrated Perspex shelves adorned with scores of homemade rainbow-coloured cakes and puddings which guests could dress with fruit coulis and butterscotch sauce dispensed from four taps. Treats included blueberry cheesecake slices, raspberry macarons, lemon posset, iced pistachio sponge and lemon drizzle squares.

We were delighted to see so much enthusiasm from guests towards our innovative creation. It was a great opportunity to show how we are forward-thinking and always trying to push the boundaries of event food.

Chapter House: New Event Venue

Posted on: September 18th, 2015 by chandco

Renowned as a venue for prestigious events, St Paul’s Cathedral has added yet another jewel to its crown.

Designed and built in 1715 by the Cathedral’s acclaimed Sir Christopher Wren and his son, Chapter House is a significant landmark in London’s portfolio of architectural elegance. This year, following an extensive restoration project, St Paul’s Cathedral is proud to open the doors of Chapter House to event bookers for the first time in history.

With views overlooking the north side of the Cathedral and its iconic dome, the new event venue includes two intimate and ornately decorated rooms, perfect for fine dining (for up to 24 people) and elegant receptions (for up to 70).
