On the 26th March Heriot was at Stationers Hall. Though we’ve been there before this was our first function as preferred caterers.
The event was a little intimidating. It was a Banquet celebrating the 650th Anniversary of the Magistracy in England. So we were all on our best behaviour.
No loitering with intent – but quick snappy service.
Naturally for a banquet the guests started with a selection of Chefs Canapés.
Then the 200 guests sat down in this historic hall to a menu of:
Butternut Squash and Pomodoro Tomato Soup with Spinach and Marscapone Tortellni,
Roasted Seabass on a Bed of Fennel with new seasons Jersey Potatoes.
And a Sweet consisting of a Trio of Miniature Desserts
Given the number of people we prepared the meal in the Heriot production kitchen. Then transported everything to the Hall to complete the process and serve.
The Canapés were prepared there as the Chef just likes them to be just so .
We also prepared the tables and provided the wine for this event.
To finish off we received a letter from the Chairman of Middlesex Magistrates who had organised the event. He thanked us for all the work and praised the food and service.
Which we appreciate as we like to know that we’ve done our best to make such a unique event a success.
