Cold canapes

Way back in 1986, London catering options changed dramatically when we opened our doors in Smithfield for the first time. Primarily an up-market, take away, sandwich and salad bar, we were soon asked to supply sandwich platters for office meetings. Within a year, the demand for more varied menus marked the start of our evolution toward the business we are today

The first of those new menus was the introduction of cold canapés menus. Initially, just two menus were enough to satisfy demand but grew to four by 2004. Then, in 2005, we were asked to design cold canapés for the book launch of Matthew Pinsent CBE. The brief was to design a menu that reflected the cuisine of the four countries where he won gold medals: Spain, USA, Australia and Greece.

Inevitably, the success of that event led to the introduction of our bespoke canapés to complement our catering services London. Since then we have created themed canapés for many events including the Olympics and Paralympics , Halloween parties, an Hawaiian event for a blue chip City Company and a “Mad Hatter” wedding reception.

Whatever style event you are planning this year, why not call us to discuss and get a free estimate to include food, staff, drinks and equipment hire?
