Impress your guests with your own private caterer

There is an enormous amount of planning and organisation that goes into a private party. One of the most important aspects is the food. It is vital that you provide your guests with food, but this is an enormous task. It is for this reason that it is worth enlisting the services of a catering company.

Food is an essential ingredient for any private party. Providing your guests with food allows people to stay at the party for long periods, relax and enjoy themselves. Food can bring people together, so it is also an excellent tool for helping people to socialise and mingle.
Whether it is a birthday party, cocktail party or anniversary, you should always make food one of the top priorities. Usually, finger food in a buffet is the best type to serve. It allows people to eat as much or as little as they like and choose when they eat. It is also light and easy so people can socialise while they eat. A few great options for a private party include canapés, sandwiches, cheeses, brochette and quiche.
Preparing food for a large group can be stressful and time-consuming. With this in mind, it is worth using a professional catering company. The best private catering London companies can even provide you with a chef to cook the food at the venue. Taking assistance of a catering service ensures that everything is fresh, hot and delicious and certainly impresses your guests. Using a catering company also reduces a lot of stress for the host and frees up time to focus on other areas of the party.
Private parties are always fantastic events and a great way to celebrate. They can also be stressful to organise and especially when it comes to the food, so using a caterer is an excellent solution to this problem.

Impress your guests with the best canapes London has to offer

Food is an important part of any party, but providing food for a large group can be daunting. This is why it is best to use a catering company, and in this way you will be able to select a wide range of delicious, well-presented food which is sure to impress your guests.

When throwing a party you will want to impress your guests and show them a good time. This can cause a lot of stress for the host as there is a lot to plan, and one of the most important aspects is the food.

All parties need food so that guests can satiate their hunger while they relax and feel comfortable, and it is also a good way to impress your guests. Providing food for such a large group of people can be daunting, and this is why it is best to use a professional catering company. This will not only alleviate the stress but also ensure the food looks good and tastes fantastic.

It is best to use an established catering company, such as Bertrand Munier’s private party catering, as this way you know that you are in good hands. Caterers such as these will be able to provide the perfect food for your party, including the best canapes London has to offer.

Canapes are a particularly good party food as they are light and allow people to socialise whilst they eat. In addition, they can also add elegance to the evening as they are beautifully presented and packed full of flavour.

My favorite Winter Treat ! Italian Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate Recipe

Italy is famous for their Cioccolato Caldo, especially during the fall and winter months. This hot chocolate is sometimes served so thick (like a pudding), that you need a spoon to actually eat it! this recipe doesn’t make it that thick. The luxurious richness comes from using top-quality chocolate.

What You Will Need:

  1. 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate 70% or higher
  2. 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  3. 2 tablespoons sugar
  4. 2 teaspoons corn starch

What To Do:

  1. Into a saucepan over LOW heat add chocolate and a drop of milk. Stir with a wooden spoon until melted.
  2. SLOWLY add remaining milk until it’s well combined. Add sugar. Mix to combine. Whisk in corn starch.
  3. Continue cooking over LOW heat until it becomes thick, creamy and coats the back of the wooden spoon.

Hot chocolate Italian-style is one of the most amazing treats in the world! You have to try this pudding-like chocolate decadence! Add some Irish cream, cinnamon, and whipped cream for a fun variation, or create your own!”

I suggest some petit four or sweet canapes and  sandwich to serve your afternoon tea

a delice !!!

for Chocolate lover watch the chocolat movie you will like it !!

The benefits of getting your dinner party food delivered

Cooking food for a large group at a dinner party can be intimidating for the host as there is an expectation to impress the guests. One great trick is to order your food online from a catering company. It ensures that everything tastes fantastic, reduces stress and allows the host to spend more time socialising at the party.

Hosting a dinner party can be very stressful as there is so much pressure to impress. Even experienced dinner party hosts will have anxiety in the run up to the big night, and often it is the food which causes the most concern. Cooking a range of dishes for a large group can be intimidating, but fortunately, there is a great hidden trick which can considerably reduce stress and dazzle your guests.

This is to get your dinner party food delivered by a catering company. A caterer can provide everything that you will need for the evening. The list includes starters, main courses, desserts and even a cheese board. You will have an enormous range to choose from so you can cater to every taste and choose something which will leave a lasting impression on your guests. The food comes with storage and serving instructions – means you simply have to serve it up on the big night.
One of the key advantages of this trick is that it frees up a huge amount of time during the party. The host often spends a large part of the evening hidden in the kitchen, but by ordering the food online, it allows you to spend more time sitting at the table and enjoying the company of your guests. It also means that there is less to wash up too!

If you have a dinner party coming up and have concerns about the food, this is a great trick that will reduce stress and impress your guests.

CANAPES IN LONDON – THE BEST FINGER FOODS FOR PARTIES

 

Imagine a scenario where you’re hosting a sleek, reception for your event in London. Every one of your guests has turned out in their best clothes and are looking elegant and stylish. So, would you just stick to cocktails and call it a wrap? No, because as host, you cannot let your guests leave the party hungry. Also, due to time or space constraints, you can’t squeeze in a formal sit-down meal either. So, what do you do? Look for canapes in London of course!

You serve them, canapés of course

It’s often said, “Good Things come in Small Packages”. And, canapés are no exception to this adage. They are exquisite culinary creations that not only look good but pack a punch when it comes to taste. Thus, the ever-increasing popularity of canapés in London corporate events and other private parties requires no explanations.

Enter Canapés – The most preferred finger food at parties in London

Canapés (pronounced as “can-a-PAYS”) are small finger foods that are usually served before dinner often accompanied with cocktails. It’s a type of hors d’oeuvre and is a two-bite food whose base is either a small bread or cracker with a topping of savoury or sweet ingredients.

Modern canapés use a kind of pancake called as blini or a pastry shell as the base. Even chefs make use of fluted cutters to cut round or shaped slices of plain white bread that serve as the base. At times, you can also find small baguettes as the base of the canapé. You can mix it up and serve different types of canapés and provide your guests with a broad range of choices.

Why are Canapés immensely popular at private parties?

There are various factors that contribute to the popularity of Canapés. Let’s have a short look at some of the notable factors:

Easy to Eat

No one likes to mess their favourite cocktail dress. Canapés are easy to bite into, non-messy and above all don’t leave you with sticky fingers. You can have waiters serving them on trays to your guests.

Varied Selection of Flavours

No one likes to eat the same thing over and over again at a party. With Canapés, you get to experiment with a vast range of flavours. The topping can be sweet, savoury, hot or cold. You can choose from meat, fish, cheese, caviar, steak, lobster, prosciutto ham and shrimp. The more luxurious the topping, the deeper are the flavours.

Apart from the topping, each canapé is finished with a garnish placed on top of the topping. By garnish, we don’t mean something that looks beautiful like a sprig of parsley but something that adds an extra dimension to the dish.

Very often, a garnish is what sets a canapé apart and makes it tantalising. It’s usually small like minced herbs that lend an earthy smell, slivered red or yellow peppers that add a dash of colour or minced onions for that extra crunch.

With so many permutations and combinations, you can serve a wide variety of flavours and textures all with a single dish.

Serve Canapés and Impress your Guests

Happy tummies make people happy. Serve a broad range of canapés to your guests, improve the mood of your event and, feel proud of hosting a successful party.

I’m Crazy for a chocolate Eclair !!

Chocolate éclairs are among the world’s most famous pastries and they are certainly one of my  great Dessert .

IMG_1903 - Version 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But must of the pastry shop in england and US  sell then with Chantilly cream and chocolate fondant on the top .

This is why I like you to discover the French version of this golden cake …

IMG_0668

Some best Patisserie in France  Like Fauchon, Lenotre bake some fantastic selection,( Rose, caramel, pistachio, coffee, vanilla, chocolate )

As a chef I start do do some different Flavours with raspberry, lemon,  strawberry and this eclair are working so well  with my cocktail party.

For me a eclair need to be Classic and Fashion at the same time ( the Summer eclair …. )

Eclairs are set to become the new cupcake, according to  London retailers.

Selfridges said sales are up nearly a quarter compared with this time last year, and its afternoon tea venue — Dolly’s — is set to sell 12 new varieties. M&S and Jamie Oliver’s restaurant Fifteen have also launched flavoured éclairs, with the latter offering rhubarb and custard.

Experts put the resurgence of the choux pastry treat down to the popularity of afternoon tea and the revival of home baking brought about by TV’s The Great British Bake Off. M&S said: “We think this will be the year of the éclair … it seems their popularity will soon be challenging the mighty cupcake.”

The chocolate éclair has long been a staple in UK patisseries, but new flavours are key to the boom. Selfridges’ executive chef, Mark Taylor, said: “On a recent trip to Paris, the range of flavours was vast — pistachio, mint, violet cream.”

Chef !! a movies for Foodies and food truck lovers ..

Foodies who feasted on “Big Night,” “Babette’s Feast” and “Eat Drink Man Woman” may flock to “Chef,” a lightweight but high-calorie confection in which the actors often run the risk of being upstaged by all manner of scrumptious-looking cuisine.

Chef_1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Written and directed by Jon Favreau, who also stars as a professionally frustrated chef who earns a second helping of happiness while operating a food truck, this amiably rambling dramedy will play best with audiences primed to go with the flow of its leisurely pacing while enjoying the cross-country ride. And, of course, savoring the views of that tempting grub.

The slightly longish setup establishes Carl Casper (Favreau) as a stressed-for-success master chef in a trendy Los Angeles restaurant where he is absolute master of his kitchen — as long as he pleases the establishment’s demanding owner (Dustin Hoffman). When an even more demanding restaurant blogger (Oliver Platt) pans Casper’s menu as too safe and predictable — and snidely suggests Casper may be overweight because he’s eaten too many dinners returned by unsatisfied customers — Casper furiously tweets an invitation to the critic to return for a taste of the chef’s new bill of fare.

Unfortunately, the owner overrules Casper and insists that his chef prepare the same old same old. Even more unfortunately, a video of Casper’s angry confrontation with the critic goes viral — and the chef quickly finds himself not just unemployed, but virtually unemployable. Fortuitously, Inez (Sofia Vergara), Casper’s well-to-do ex-wife, picks just this time for a trip back home to Miami, where Casper got his start as a culinary artist. She buys him a plane ticket to join her on the trip, ostensibly so he can play “nanny” to Percy (Emjay Anthony), their 11-year-old son — but really so he can get back in touch with his roots.
