On Thursday we catered for a Christmas Party at Well Barn Estate. Deeply in picturesque countryside the shooting lodge boasts a large reception area ideal for weddings, parties and corporate dinners. The barn is decorated with a mixture of country, luxury and modern fixtures from all over the world.
The roaring fire set the Christmas mood perfectly last night, as the evening started with pink champagne and canapés which included devils on horseback and salmon gravlax on a bed of cucumber with dill. After the reception the guests were seated for their festive feast.
The food was served onto tables named after Christmas icons, including Santa Claus! Each of the tables were decorated with tinsel, Christmas crackers, holly, cinnamon and baubles.
Each guest had a choice of starter, main and dessert; with a festive choice within each course. This included a traditional smoked salmon starter, Christmas dinner with all the trimmings for the main course and Christmas pudding with custard for dessert. Other choices included a deliciously rich Chicken Liver Parfait to start and a Mandarin and White Chocolate Trifle for dessert. Delicious!
