Borough Market is a delight by night

Posted on: November 24th, 2014 by chandco

On 12 November, as the afternoon light faded and Borough Market’s traders closed down for the evening, our team burst into action, bringing the historic market hall back to life for an evening of vibrant street food and vivacious entertainment.

Over 250 guests caroused in a feast of flavours from our Street Eats food stall concept, launched to critical acclaim earlier this year at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Greeted by barrels of New Forest mulled cider, guests soon warmed up as they gathered around upturned oil cans that were transformed into table top fondue stations.

As the band warmed up and the drinks flowed, it was cheese galore at the bespoke branded raclette stall, with French bread, baby potatoes and pickles, loaded mac ‘n’ cheese and deliciously oozy Montgomery cheddar & sour dough toasties.

Korean yum buns tempted guests over to a tucked away corner. Steamed pillow-soft buns filled were heaped with slow cooked pork belly, miso glazed Portobello mushrooms or sticky chilli ginger salmon and served with kimchi, gyozas & Korean red dragon sauce.

There were winter warmers aplenty at the traditional pie & mash stall, complete with jellied eels, and we bought the Basque to Borough with baby chorizo butter bean stew, squid ink rice with calamari and carved Brindisa Iberico ham, all with a feast of breads, cheese, vinegars and oils.

Under the roof of one of London’s most famous landmarks, passers-by on Borough High Street stopped catch a glimpse of the goings-on inside. The bustling market place was alive with music, laughter and the enticing aromas of the stalls.

Needless to say, the event was a roaring success and feedback was outstanding. One guest commented ‘what a superb evening it was, probably one of the best I’ve been to in recent memory. The food, drink, entertainment and attention to detail were all outstanding, especially the branding’ another said ‘Literally the best corporate event I’ve been to in 20 years’. We couldn’t agree more!

H&J Events and St Paul’s Cathedral launch Street Eats for events and conferences

Posted on: July 23rd, 2014 by chandco

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.
