One of our 2016 highlights was being asked to cater for the The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club, Lord Sebastian Coe Charitable Foundation, supporting Cancer Research UK. Lord Coe hosted a high-profile charitable fundraiser and first class polo match with one-hundred high-society guests who dug deep into their pockets to support a great cause.
Working along side the great events team at RCBPC and after a tasting at our HQ of a selection of dishes the menu was agreed on – with a change from the formal plated 3 course, with the starters being served family style. Family style is by far our most popular service – as guests are encouraged to talk to their neighbours by passing around gorgeous platters of delights & all guests sample a lovely variety. RCBPC owners, Greta and Jamie chose handmade Cumberland scotch eggs with red onion chutney, spinach gruyere and pancetta tarts & mozzarella, juicy heritage tomatoes with fresh basil salad, accompanied by artisan bread, olive oil and balsamic vinegar – a huge success. Followed by crispy confit of duck on a bed of creamy pea and mint risotto with a blackberry sauce. And then topped off by a classic, summer fruit and basil infused puddings with creme fraiche.
You can see our Mediterranean influences coming out in the style and tastes in our menu. Its just so lovely to excite guests with new and interesting flavours and dishes – a real joy. And we are very lucky to have such innovative clients that we can work along side with.
We were delighted and extremely proud to receive this glowing testimonial from Production Manager, Alissandre Henneton:
“As one of the ‘big four’ Polo Clubs in the country, the Great Food Company has allowed us to lead the industry in an unprecedented quality and level of service that is simply unmatched by our competitors. Hosting Sebastian Coe’s largest charitable fundraiser, the Great Food Company catered for 200 of the great and the good producing an exceptionally tasty menu, presented and served flawlessly. Previously the company catered at our annual Prince of Wales Trophy, again serving superb quality that arrives on the table is if prepared to order. Not only is the quality of their catering above and beyond anything I have ever experienced, the attention to detail and range of options available has provided us with a level of service that has been met with extremely positive feedback from guests, players and patrons. The company has provided us with everything from three-course fine dining to afternoon tea for the local Mayor that helped raise thousands of pounds for charity. Five stars!”
