Private Dining Is A Popular Choice

These days we are finding that fine or private dining is a popular choice. Everyone wants to offer something different and with restaurant prices the way they are these days, we are getting lots of enquiries for this service.

We come into your home and cook the menu you have chosen. We then serve it to you, clear it up and leave your kitchen the way we found it.

This is a really special treat, especially for older people who would rather not go out. It is also extremely popular for stags as well as hens, at the start of their celebrations.

Many of our fine dining enquiries are for hen weekends in Brighton, where a group of ladies are hiring a house or apartment in Brighton, where they can enjoy all the nightlife this fine city has to offer. They will eat a gourmet meal in the beautiful accommodation they have hired for the weekend and then go out afterwards.

Take a look at just a few examples of fine dining we have worked with this year:

An 80th birthday celebration. This dining experience was in a rented property overlooking Bewl Water. they chose canapés, served by their grandchildren (a lovely and really personal touch!) The main meal was a choice of either oven-roasted fillet of Cod with a Chorizo & Butter Bean Ragout or slow-roast Lamb served on Boulangere Potatoes with Mediterranean Vegetables. And then a trio of desserts finished off the banquet.

“Nothing was too much trouble. Everything went to plan and all the guests were truly impressed by not just the quality of the food, but the entire operation – the service, attention to detail and the ease at which it was all put together.”

Stag Weekend at Haremere Hall. Tom and his merry band of mates wanted to buck the trend of most stag do’s by doing it in style, the emphasis being on fantastic food and great service. They chose a very sophisticated menu of Carpaccio of Beef Fillet, followed by Slow-roast shoulder of Lamb served on Boulangere Potatoes, with Mediterranean Vegetables in a light Rosemary Jus. For dessert they tucked into Sticky Toffee Pudding with Toffee Sauce.

We also delivered a selection of homemade curries for the day after, as they didn’t think they would feel like cooking!

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the weekend. The food was exceptional; the guys have been raving about the lamb in particular!”

Hired House in East Dean. This was another 80th celebration and like most who book Private Dining it was so that they could have fine food and an attentive service without anyone having to cook, or even worry about the shopping – and they definitely didn’t have to worry about the washing up either.

“we had a fabulous weekend, all of which helped by your fantastic food, so thanks again for that”.

Starters - Private DiningA Work Do. Mark, who owns a local company was stuck as to what to do for his Christmas work party. Being only a small team with varying tastes they have always in the past gone to a local restaurant, but this year Mark wanted something a bit different – something a bit more personal and tailor-made for them.

Mark and his wife selected a menu that would suit all of the tastes of the guests, which is what it’s all about really. On the menu to start was a trio of salmon, a tomato, basil & mozzarella tower, and chicken liver pate.

For mains they enjoyed pan fried fillet steak, slow roasted shoulder of lamb and stuffed chicken breast. The one vegetarian had a filo basket filled with chick pea and butternut squash curry and aromatic rice.

The trio of desserts went down a storm too, before finishing off with coffee & chocolate mints.

They had left out a selection of cheeses to enjoy later on which we plattered up and left all ready for them (with some of our lovely home made chilli jam – one of Mark’s favourite things).

“Having previously struggled to find a suitable venue ensuring quality food and atmosphere at our office Christmas party we decided this year to try something different. Green Fig Catering were booked to provide an evening of Fine Dining.

The evening was a complete success. The food was delicious and the attention to detail was faultless. The event was held in an open plan space , but despite this we were completely unaware of you during the preparation, cooking and even clearing up.

The evening was one of the most enjoyable parties we have organised and we will certainly look to repeat this again in the future. We have already recommended your company and will continue to do so to colleagues and clients.”
