This year our team has catered at some of the most exciting events on the calendar, from the star-studded launch of Halo 5 at the Roundhouse and Brick Lane pop-up the House of Peroni, to summer festivals like OnBlackheath. Here are just a few of our favourites.
Microsoft took over the Roundhouse in Camden, in order to celebrate the latest instalment of their multibillion-dollar gaming franchise: Halo 5: Guardians. Guests enjoyed a selection of our hearty manapés during the spectacular event. We served Mini Traditional Fish and Chips, Roast English Strip Loin Open Sandwiches, Vegetable Spring Rolls, Beetroot and Goat’s Cheese Arancini.
A one of a kind immersive, multi-sensory experience returned to Brick Lane from 29 October – 25 November. Residents included Michelin-starred chef Accursio Craparo, acclaimed surrealist art director and set designer Rhea Thierstein and Italian paper installation artist, Francesca Signori.
The Roundhouse Rooftop Gardens returned for a second summer, and summer party guests enjoyed our catering while they were up there. Our catering options included a huge range of canapés for guests to pick from, as well as a full barbecue menu – well it wouldn’t be summer without a barbecue, would it!
It was a Freaky Thursday as art, design and production company Theme Traders presented its secret party. Held at the company’s North London HQ, the promotional event was inspired by the magic of childhood birthday parties, with different themed rooms for guests to explore and plenty of nostalgic food courtesy of our team. In attendance were members of the press, venue partners and clients.
The London Kitchen team returned to On Blackheath festival for the second year running last weekend, for a world-class celebration of food and music. There were no greasy burgers and soggy chips at this festival! Instead partygoers enjoyed food demos, delicious Farmers Market produce and some of the hottest street food in town.
The Cambridge Satchel Company unveiled its brand new store in Short Gardens. It’s the company’s first men’s store, and stocks the brand’s famous leather satchels as well as seasonal variations. The launch gave 150 specially invited guests the chance to explore the new store and collections.
A recruitment company hosted a daytime conference at Old Billingsgate, followed by an evening celebration, complete with bowl food and street food stalls created by our team. Live cooking stations added a touch of theatre to proceedings.
Ray-Ban’s “13th hour” was a feast for senses you didn’t know you had. The deeply immersive, extra-sensory experience brought the brand’s global campaign to a close at Shoreditch Town Hall. We were tasked with providing impressive catering worthy of the Order of the Never Hide, an event where guests would really take a leap from reality.
Abbey Road Studios is one of the world’s most famous recording studios, having been the venue for innovative recording techniques adopted by The Beatles, Pink Floyd, the Hollies and Badfinger. In the summer, the London Kitchen team headed to the heritage site to put our own singing skills to the test, as part of the studio’s ‘Record a Song’ experience.
On 9th November our team were at the stunning Leighton House for a prestigious Patrons Dinner. 64 guests enjoyed a selection of canapés, followed by a two-course seated dinner. Hot canapés included Sweet potato rosti with lime crème fraiche and confit duck, Baby aubergine with harissa-marinated feta and pomegranate and Smoked haddock and leek fishcakes with tartare sauce.
We’re looking forward to more brilliant events in 2016 – keep an eye on our blog in the New Year!
