Brief

Four Gables were approached to provide lunch for a two day digital workshop.  The brief of the workshop was to provide a training experience the directors at Luxe Bridal would want to attend – something unmissable and compelling.  The clients were the creme de la creme of bridal retail, you can view the full list here.  The food would be eaten as a working lunch and so needed to be clean and easy to eat but delicious and funky.  No buffets here!

The Four Gables Touch

The food needed to be beautiful and practical.  We put together ‘bento boxes’ styled with edible flowers.  Day one was a beautiful Asian styled box bursting with vegetable sushi; hoisin duck; luscious soy marinaded salmon and bok choy.  Lime and mint posset with sesame crumble served as a finale.  Day two showcased all things ‘traditional’ wedding with smoked salmon and crab mayo ‘pillows’; parmesan scones with blue cheese and poached pear; duck egg, spinach & cucumber roulade; four cheese and chive quichettes and a pudding of lemon & pistachio drizzle cake and fresh strawberries and clotted cream.  Leonie Clare co-founder of Luxe Bridal said, ‘Thank you so much again. There is still much talk of thoroughly enjoying the bento boxes among the attendees.  Superb food beautifully presented’.
