Paella & Co – paella and party tapas caterers
Paella & Co. specialise in creating delicious and memorable paella and tapas wedding breakfasts. Paella is their passion. They have been cooking authentic paellas and tapas for over seven years at their beautiful Hotel L’Avenida in the mountains of Mallorca. They still own the hotel, but are now living and cooking the amazing food of Spain here in the UK.
The philosophy is simple – to use the freshest, most authentic ingredients to create fabulous paellas and delicious tapas. Provenance is paramount to everything they cook. The rice is from the Navarra region of Spain, and the earthy smoky paprika comes from La Vera where farmers still roast the red capsicums over wood fires. Chorizo and hams come from small producers and estates.
From 40 to 1000 guests, their mouth watering food is enjoyed by happy clients at weddings, birthday parties, special celebrations, sporting events, festivals, charity bashes, and corporate gatherings. They can cook paellas indoors as well as outside. The possibilities are only limited by imagination! www.love-paella.com
Butcherland Lamb Roasts – organic lamb on a spit
Forget hog roasts and BBQs, beautiful organic lamb roasted for hours slowly over a spit beside a wood fire will make your guests drool. Butcherland Roasts have been roasting lambs beside a wood fire since 1988, It was a skill learnt from their forefathers, when the spit was still turned by a person having to continuously pull a chain. They use the same traditional family butcher for the lamb who is well known for his homemade sausages, organic lamb and beef. A work of art, it takes 2 hours to set everything up and 5 hours to cook the lamb. The lamb is constantly turned on a spit and by being constantly basted the meat is mouth wateringly moist. Perfect for your evening guests on a balmy Summer night. www.butcherland-lamb-roasts.co.uk
Fish and Chips
There is nothing quite like traditional British fish and chips and we just love this idea for a low key wedding. Choose fish and chips as your favourite on your wedding breakfast menu either as a mini canapé, main course, or instead of an old traditional evening buffet. Increasing amounts of brides, grooms, party organisers, and event planners are booking traditional British fish and chips for their freshness, cost effectiveness and health benefits. Simon Cowell served some of his favourite delicacies such as Shepherds pie, fish and chips and mini roast beef and Yorkshire pudding hors d’oeuvres at his 50th birthday bash. Honest traditional home cooked food is making a come back and will be a wow with your guests. www.fishandchipcatering.co.uk
