Historic Royal Palaces selected Blue Strawberry once again for this year’s most talked-about showcase at iconic Kensington Palace. The evening featured an exhilarating range of menus exploring 2019 gastronomic trendsat four uniquely styled ‘Chef’s Table’ experiences – highlighting Blue Strawberry’s innovative approach in moving away from a more traditional sit-down dinner format.
An Industry Led Wonderland
150 wedding planners and influencers sampled highlights from Blue Strawberry’s incredible dinner menu in an informal and sociable format before foraging for miniature desserts in an English wildflower ‘valley’.
Guests began their culinary journey with stylish canapés served in the Palace’s ornate Cuppola Room before moving to the Pavilion for the main event. Here they were invited to watch the intricacies of plating dishes from a seat at one of the stylish counters. Once diners had sampled the exquisite dish, complemented by a beautifully paired wine, they eagerly made their way to another stationwhere further talented chefs were at work.
Dancers and singers entertained guests throughout the evening from a breathtaking central floral installation with gold walkways, which also hosted an ethereal bridal fashion catwalk show. The models made way for Blue Strawberry’s magnificent desserts which were placed into the floristry installation. Guests were delighted to become part of the set and discover a multitude of colourful miniature puddings.
Stuart Jenkins, Managing Director at Blue Strawberry and Table Talk comments
“We have been overwhelmed with exceptional feedback from guests as they had the chance to see our talented chefs in action first-hand, ask questions about cooking techniques and the ingredients selected – before enjoying the many dishes being served.
The spectacular dessert station ended the evening on such a high note! People love to feel that they have discovered something hidden – particularly if that ‘something’ is a delicious dessert!
We are incredibly proud to be an Historic Royal Palaces cross-palace supplier, which is testament to our highest quality menus and impeccable service. We are thrilled to have been a part of such a magical event that will be remembered by the industry for many years to come.”
