What a stunning setting for a Bank Holiday weekend wedding held over 2 days near Slapton. The sun shone, the guests danced and everyone had a fantastic time! We had worked with the couple over the last few months, choosing the menu and putting together food that fitted with whole feel of the wedding. Dartmouth crab, summer salads and local pork. The photos tell the story of the weekend.... oh and yes the Wedding cake was a pork pie made by Serin!
Well what a difference a week makes in good old blighty! Last week wellies, this week Factor 50 sun cream. In true style British style we wheeled out the barbeque to cater for a house warming party. The guests feasted on fish brochettes, marinated rump steak skewers, Devon Blue rarebit bites, scotch eggs and various salads.
A slightly soggy start to the wedding season, but this is Devon after all! Wellies at the ready, we set up the marquee for 165 guests.
A selection of 1700 canapes, followed by sirloin of beef (carved at the table by the guests) accompanied by warm seasonal salads.
At our lastest collaboration with friends Michael Sutton's Cellars, at Riversbridge, as part of the Dartmouth Food Festival auction prize winners dinner, we put together a five course seasonal tasting menu with wines to match. From our Devon suppliers we served canapes, Devon crab salad, followed by lamb finishing with lemon tart.
Where do we start? This is Dartmouth Fine Foods first Blog on our brand new website, and we would just like to say hello and welcome to everybody.
Having had an extremely busy first half of the year, finding time to get the website up and running has proved to be a bit more of a challenge than anticipated. We think it looks great though, and would like to thank Howard and Paul at Cloudberry Digital for their work on creating the site and Sue and Terry at Original Image for the fantastic photography.
The rest of the year is looking good with lots of parties and several weddings booked, but we are also planning some very interesting ‘Pop Up Suppers’, watch this space!
Please get in touch with any enquires or ideas that we may be able to help with, and let us know what you think of our shiny new website on our Facebook page.
Finally, a date for your diary; come and see us at, ‘The Dartmouth Food Festival’, 23-25 October 2015. We will be everywhere, as usual, but have some very special things planned this year. We will tell you more very soon.
