Rupert Parker of The Huffington Post comments post British night at Global Feast 2012….. “By now the Red Arrows have soared overhead and the opening ceremony is about to start. Denise Baker-McClearn’s Welsh dessert of apple and cinnamon tart with Bara brith ice cream and vanilla salted caramel is the perfect accompaniment to Danny Boyle’s idyll of sheep and green fields. There’s even a glass of smooth and slightly honeyed Penderyn whiskey, her local distillery, to wash it down. As the spectacle rumbles on, we drink more champagne and reflect that we’ve had the best of British on our plates, and now, on TV, the world is getting a glimpse of the same thing”
Reading Denise’s blog about mine and Sam’s wedding made me nearly cry and laugh out loud, especially with the timing of the arrival of the baby chicks!!
It also made me realize just how much time and effort Denise and her fab staff put into the catering for our wedding. To say it was challenging was definitely an understatement!! Not only did they have to battle the epic journey to Plas Gwynfryn with a very full van and squished in waitresses, there was also the rain, gale force winds, the second, yes the second flapping catering marquee (the other one had collapsed the night before), and smoke inhalation to contend with!
However, Denise and her team did not let on any of this get in the way, instead providing absolutely impeccable service, smiles and most importantly, top notch food throughout our special day. Having attended one of Denise’s supper clubs in December last year and trying first-hand, possibly the most amazing boozy blackcurrant trifle I have ever tasted, we knew the food would be to an excellent standard. However, it was more than that, it was incredible! Right from the tapas style starters which were presented beautifully on the tables, the BBQ buffet was perfect and the halloumi kebabs absolutely delicious!! The pudding went very quickly and everybody commented on how yummy the home-made Eton mess was.
We had also asked Denise to make cupcakes for our wedding, just a few of them, only 100!! These looked fantastic and Denise had even decorated some of them with edible bat iced decorations, a lovely touch and one much to Sam’s surprise!! He loved them! The cupcakes were incredibly tasty and were eaten ridiculously quickly, a great sign!
Denise and her team worked so hard to help make our wedding day perfect. They braved all the elements to provide 100 guests with a fantastic 3 course meal and a home-made vegetarian pizza for the evening meal, all cooked and prepared outside in a flimsy, canvas marquee. Denise also organised all of the crockery and kitchen hire for our big day helping to relieve some of the pressure of organising a pretty epic wedding!
We cannot thank Denise enough for all the help and support that she provided us with both before and during our wedding day!! It really was fantastic and although she will probably kill me for saying it, I will definitely be recommending her services for other catering events!!!
