Some of what you might expect next week

A very helpful customer commented earlier this week that it might be useful to have an idea of what the food looked like; before coming to formal. Always one to please, I've taken photos of a few dishes we hope to replicate next week.
Please bare in mind that these are professionally staged food photos that don't really resemble the 'actual' food they represent. However, we will try our hardest to emulate these great recipes!

  1. Hello,
    I was at formal last night and I really enjoyed the amuse-bouche served in an eggshell. However, I'm intrigued to know how you managed to get the top off all the eggs so neatly?!

  2. Browsing these pictures, is a terribly good way to procrastinate. They look incredibly tasty. I just find it so sad that i can't eat formal everyday!
