Last night saw housebites taking on perhaps our most difficult task yet …The feeding of the 500.
We were asked if we could cater for a huge event, in the basement club of our office building, called Silicon Christmas. The idea was to get together people from the Internet sector who are disrupting things digitally – whether just starting out (like us) or established and changing the world (like Moshi Monsters).
We don’t like the term ‘catering’ and prefer to call it ‘live cooking’ of our menus. Which is exactly what we did.
Chef Laurent Rossi served Slow Cooked Beef served with what one customer called ‘the best mash they had ever tasted’ as well as his famous Choco Brownies. He also offered some delicious Chicken Liver Parfait canapés.
Daniel Jack served melt in the mouth Spiced Pork Belly with Tomato Butter Beans.
Leo Sophocleous (who recently joined us delivering to Archway, Camden and Holloway) served Grilled Halloumi with Salsa and Couscous.
Our Head Chef Andy Oliver was there to help everything run smoothly. He also served a Seared Salmon with Asian Salad as well as some fantastic sweet and savoury canapés.
The food went down a treat but it was clear that some folks thought this was just exceptional catering and we had to explain to quite a few people that these were our actual menus and quite simply what they can have delivered at great prices.
Amazing thanks to Josh March, Kieran O’ Neil, Sam Matthews and the team behind Silicon Christmas. It was a great experience and we got to enjoy the party after the food was finished with two DJ sets and three live bands including a set from the Loose Cannons.
