We have worked in partnership with the NFL for three years now, catering at an annual event taking place at the capital’s most famous stadium: Wembley.
Every year different teams from different US states fly over to battle it out before a UK audience, with VIP guests all tucking into London Kitchen dishes as they watch the match unfold.
The London Kitchen caters three separate events, all held within the VIP hospitality tent. These traditionally include the Trafalgar Square fan rally, another fan rally at Wembley and of course Match Day itself, also at Wembley.
The menus for each event are themed around the states of the teams participating. In previous years our bespoke menus have included Coconut Crumbed Fish Cakes with Pineapple, Chilli and Chive, Steak Frites, Seared Marinated Skirt Steak served with Classic Mustard Demi Sauce and French Fries, served in mini Cones and Fillet of Beef Tataki with Pickled Shiitake Mushrooms and Asparagus and ‘Miami’ Mojito Flavoured Gourmet Popcorn, all served for VIP guests at Oakland Raiders v. Miami Dolphins.
For Atlanta Falcons vs. Detroit Lions we served Mini Beef Burgers with Red Onion, Cheddar Cheese, Tomato Relish and Lettuce, Spicy Fish Tacos with Red Pepper Salsa and Fresh Greens and Mini Southern Fried Chicken Wrap with Home-Style Slaw, as well as Mini Boston Cream Doughnuts and Red Velvet Cupcakes.
When the Dallas Cowboys met the Jacksonville Jaguars guests were served Florida Sweetcorn Fritters, Served with an Avocado Salsa and Tangy Tomato Sauce, Southwestern Shepherd Pie, Classic with a Southern Twist, topped with Corianderand oven baked Four Cheese Mac and Cheese with Smokey Cheddar, Gruyere, Stilton and Parmesan, followed by “Dallas” Margarita Flavoured Gourmet Popcorn and Classic Pecan Pie with Caramelised Pecans.
We look forward to the return of the NFL to Wembley this Autumn – don’t miss it!
