Tonight's Cocktail Party

2 days of preparation for this Cocktail party of 50 people.Set in a beautiful home in Kensington the house was decorated so beautifully with , candles and flowers everywhere.I knew the food would compliment such an elegant night.

What's on the menu?
Vegetarian rice paper rolls - these are hand rolled and filled with silken tofu and mint. A yummy sweet soy dipping sauce to compliment these delicate canapé.
Chinese five spice pancake with Peking duck hoisin cucumber and green shallots , served on a ceramic spoon with an orange and star anise glaze.

The tomato and baby boconcini filo tartlets will be finished with a beetroot chutney , these are served slightly warm and have some amazing flavours that make this vegetarian option.

Our 5 pepper squid is cooked to perfection and we have so much positive feedback from the guests with people asking how we get the squid so tender.The dipping sauce we use for the squid is a lime aioli we make from scratch , it has tablespoons of lime zest through the aioli.

Our hit tonight was undoubtably the lamb shank pies w / creamy mashed potato , a perfect winter warmer. Such positive feedback about this new cocktail item , there a stayer.

Also up there with the pies was our true favourite and every parties favourite , the Beef burger the onion jam and soft rolls.
All in all the night was a sucess with alot of happy guests asking for business cards and raving about the food and the lovely service from our gorgeous waitress Emily.
