The approach to the menu was natural, elegant and packed full of flavour. Everything from the style of the food to the crockery and serving gear was designed to fit in line with the beautiful decor of the event and the venue.
Guests entered the courtyard and were welcomed with light canapes, poke bowls and a harvest table packed with homemade pates, pickles, cheese, and an array of mezze. Guests were then lead to the main dining room where tables were laid out with whole lamb shoulders, octopus cocktails, and beautiful salads.
