Cocktail /Tapas event, an elegant way to celebrate.
Follow us on Facebook and instagram
Creating delicious canapés is an art form. The highlight of any event or celebration is the food. The sight of beautifully presented, gourmet canapés is guaranteed to induce a mouth watering response from guests. With a long history in the catering industry, we have developed a canapé menu through extensive experience with superior quality and a dedication to fresh produce. The result is a series of dishes perfectly balanced to excite the palate and intoxicate the senses.
Selecting the perfect canapés is an art form in itself. Canapés should be selected in conjunction with a wider menu to ensure that all the dishes compliment one another. We will consult with you regarding the perfect canapé option to suit any event. Contact us to discuss our tantalising options to match your event requirements.
We have three options for canapés/tapas events:
A light meal option, select 3 cold and 3 hot choices, one bowl/box option.
A substantial meal option, select 4 cold, 4 hot choices and 2 bowl/box options.
A full meal option, select 3 cold, 4 hot choices, 3 bowl/box options and 2 dessert options. (you may choose all savoury should you prefer)
Depending on the size of your function you will require at least one chef and possibly up to several waitstaff.
