Two Many Cooks delight in crafting party food which is beautiful to behold, and even finer to taste!
This week, we were called upon to create delectable canapes for British fashion icon, Amanda Wakeley. Whether we are catering for high profile events, weddings or at-home celebrations, Two Many Cooks has an instinct for providing food which mirrors the desired mood and thrills your particular guests.
For Amanda Wakeley’s evening, we felt that immaculate presentation, sophisticated flavours and light yet satisfying canapes would work perfectly.
Of course, these were to be served by our experienced staff, who find the way to be discreet yet irresistibly friendly!
The menu Two Many Cooks fashioned for the stylish celebration was as follows:
Miso and soy cured salmon with lime and cucumber
Beef Carpaccio with Watercress cream and Parmesan Croute micro watercress
Seeded Nutter, lemon houmous and charred courgette, lemon zest
Spiced Cauliflower Bang Bang with Filo Cup and Satay Sauce, spring onion and micro coriander
Sesame Tuna with wasabi and pickled cucumber
Cherry Tomato Tarte Tain with basil basil and micro basil
Amanda Wakeley styles Angelina Jolie and Helen Mirren. She has just unveiled her new Autumn/Winter collection, ‘Midnight Moth.’ For a special ‘behind-the-brand’ event presented by Conde Nast Traveller, Wakeley’s dazzling designs were presented at her flagship London boutique.
“I’m always travelling and absorbing people, places, cultures, nature and architecture,” Amanda explains. “Travel is my biggest source of inspiration, plus it gives me the space to think. Earlier this year, I visited Beirut for the first time and found the mix of ancient and modern exquisite, and the live-for-today spirit totally intoxicating.”
The fashion gurus at Conde Nast Traveller describe Amanda Wakeley’s ‘Midnight Moth’ collection as: “filled with rich embroideries and embellishment, bold prints, textures, jewel-like colours and ashes of metallics, made for nocturnal creatures.”
Amanda Wakeley adds: “I was influenced by New York in the 1970s and the golden age of Studio 54. It’s an eclectic fusion of bohemianism, rock’n’roll and disco.” Well, rock on, we say!
It really was a (disco)ball catering for such a luxurious event! We relished adding indulgent offerings of our own, in the form of our coveted canapes.
