Garden, Grill & Guilt

Garden, Grill & Guilt

PERFECT FOR…

Garden, Grill & Guilt is our delicious shared table banquet menu. It is a fun, relaxing, and social way to dine. It’s a great way to celebrate with family and friends, especially if you’re looking for the greater timing control that a seated function provides, but with slightly less formality than the plated service our Special Occasion Dining menu offers.

STYLE & SERVICE

Your entrée, mains and sides are presented on shared platters down the middle of the table for guests to help themselves to. The number of guests each platter will feed depends on the table configuration for your particular event, however our chefs ensure that there is a serve of each choice of protein selected for the two main dishes for each and every guest. This shared catering experience is complimented by an individually plated dessert because, let’s face it, nobody wants to share their sweets!

For this style of dining, we suggest keeping table decorations to a minimum as most of the room down the centre of the table is required for food service. By the time glassware, cutlery, napkins and menus are in place, the table is already looking quite stunning anyway! Some clients like to get creative with this requirement by choosing hung flower arrangements, lighting, or decorations which look fantastic and add a great point of interest and extra ambience to your event.

POSSIBILITIES

As always, we offer flexibility in the way your menu is presented and so it is possible to replace either your entrée or dessert with canapes from our Mere Morsels cocktail menu. When replacing your entrée course, 5 canapes can be selected, and when replacing dessert, 3 canapes can be chosen. This allows your guests to enjoy a period of cocktail service on arrival before being seated, which can tame their initial hunger, and give them some time to circulate prior to being seated. Another alternative is to offer a roving dessert, which could be a selection of canapes, or a version of your chosen plated dessert presented in a stand-up friendly manner. This is often a great alternative for those arranging a wedding, for example, who would like to maximise time on the dancefloor, but still see their guests enjoy a delicious dessert.

Of course, there is always the possibility of adding to your menu, rather than substituting seated courses, if you would prefer. Prices are available on request.

IN SUMMARY…

The shared nature of the Garden, Grill & Guilt menu provides an exciting, social atmosphere, encouraging guests to chat across the table, pass plates, and engage with one another. The emphasis on the sharing of a meal really brings people together, especially when the food is as hearty, innovative and appealing as ours!
