Food by Dish

Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 16:30

Last month, Kensington Palace welcomed 40 guests to a spectacular dinner catered by Food by Dish as part of the London & Partners and The Leading Hotels of the World’s London Summer Weekend.

As part of the undeniably British evening, guests were welcomed into the Sunken Garden by a guitarist for drinks and canapés. The serene garden provided the ideal space for guests to enjoy networking (in some beautiful weather we should add) before dinner, when guests were seated in the magnificent King’s Gallery.

As caterers for the event, Food by Dish provided a distinctive menu fit for the occasion with a starter of lobster tail, yellow blistered tomatoes, avocado puree and English garden leaves. A main course of fennel rubbed pork belly, hay smoked pork loin, black pudding bon bon, crackling shard, piper mash and sprouting broccoli was followed by a trio of English desserts – apricot Eton mess, apple and toffee crumble tarts with Cornish clotted cream and chocolate and butterscotch pudding pots.

This atmospheric dinner was perfectly accompanied by the soothing and relaxing notes of a harpist provided by Prelude Entertainment.

Alex Donnelly-Palmer, Events and Operations Manager at Kensington Palace, says: “We were delighted to host the London & Partners and The Leading Hotels of the World’s agency dinner on Saturday evening. We wanted to give guests a quintessentially British experience at the palace and this was certainly achieved. The fantastic weather meant we could make use of the enchanting Sunken Garden for the drinks reception, while the King’s Gallery set the scene for a royal banquet.”

This is the latest in a diverse string of wonderful events Food by Dish has worked on with Historic Royal Palaces, and this prestigious dinner at a truly special venue was again a pleasure to be involved in.
