Hi Guys, This is a mini blog as I just had such an exciting Monday morning! My lovely friend Esther and I have been to a food tasting at The Mae Deli – brain child of Deliciously Ella. Just lately I’ve been working on my corporate packages and researching gluten free/dairy free catering options.
We will soon be launching our brand new corporate packages and so I am busy slicking out the offer which means I am running around trying out delicious food and sourcing beautiful venues, locally brewed gin and learning all about champagne – it’s a lovely way to learn! This morning was all about the food..
Esther is a foodie and I was just so happy she agreed to come with me. When she suggested doing a taste test for my corporate packages I begged her to come along – “Please don’t make me go on my own, it would be like sending me to the opera and then asking me if it was good or not!” We both agreed that we all have our talents – Esther is really, really good at food and I’m really, really good at making hats!
The guys at Deliciously Ella’s, Mae Deli arranged for us to have a very lovely tasting session in the very stylish deli – this is where we sat..
So this morning top of the taste bud pops were Deliciously Ella’s …
Red pepper hummus.
Crunchy asparagus and carrot.
Asian broccoli and Bok Choy.
Satay sweet potato.
Mae day cake.
There were a few things that I had no clue about with regards to food for corporate events. The first is that, as Ella said, “People eat with their eyes”. And actually if you check out the Deliciously Ella and the Mae Deli instagram feeds this is totally obvious! You’ve just got to look at these pictures to know that the food is going to be healthy, wholesome but most importantly, it’s going to taste delightful!
Apart from taste, other practical elements for doing corporate food the right way are, it should be easy to eat with one fork, it shouldn’t be too “flicky” – you don’t want the guests to end up wearing it on their beautiful dresses and lastly when you’ve finished, it shouldn’t be lodged between your teeth!
Thank you Deliciously Ella’s Mae Deli for a wonderful tasting and especially thank you to Esther for such practical tips and for using your foodie magic thing to put the menu together.
If you are looking for corporate entertainment and want an original team building activity please do email or call and I will be super- happy to arrange your event either at your venue anywhere in the UK or at a beautiful venue in London. You know for sure that along with a wonderful hat making workshop your guests will be fed the most gorgeous, healthy food around. With a gluten free and dairy free menu they will leave feeling energised as well as feeling creatively stimulated!
With Love & Laughter, Glam Hatter Girl.
