Zest were asked to cater for a corporate buffet on Thursday 4th July 2019. Alten, world leaders in engineering and technology consulting, required catering for the opening of their new office on Pride Park in Derby.
Iris, who found our website via our organic Google ranking, requested a cold buffet for 190 people. We put together a menu of smoked salmon tartlets, melon balls and parma ham sticks, mini cheese scones with herby cream cheese and cherry vine tomatoes, sweet tomato and basil bruschetta and homemade scotch eggs. Followed by a sweet menu of chocolate brownies, carrot cake and mini meringues filled with cream and raspberries. We served tea and coffee which were included on cold buffet menu, as well as serving cold drinks provided by the client on the day.
We provided staff for the whole event to lay out the buffet and tidy up throughout the day, before packing up and cleaning down at the end of the food service. It was arranged prior to the event that we would also ensure there were enough staff for drinks service and we hired elements of glasswear that the client couldn’t source elsewhere.
All of the food was handmade using locally sourced ingredients and we made sure to provide an excellent service from food preparation right through to event completion.
“I would like to thank you for our event, everyone really enjoyed the food, you did an amazing job” - Iris, Communication Officer
