A collection of special menus for memorable food occasions in your home, prepared and arranged to be absolutely stress free. Designed to surpass anything you can get from the High Street, our chefs have created a selection of menus for your celebration in the comfort of your own home. From fine dining restaurant food and opulent food stations to the most extravagant family style roasts, you can now have Vanilla Bean’s unrivalled food experience without stealing our chefs!
Our chefs have created a starter, main course and dessert that brings the ‘wow!’ from the finest restaurant to your own home. Each course has been carefully prepared so that all you need to do is follow the simple heating and serving instructions so that you can enjoy your dinner party from the table rather than from the kitchen.
Start with the ultimate Loch Duart salmon and freshwater prawn cocktail with a creamy Bloody Mary mayonnaise, followed by a selection of the finest outdoor-reared turkey, dry aged sirloin or rosemary-studded legs of lamb farmed just four miles away from our kitchen. Fluffy Desiree potatoes tossed in goose fat ready for the oven and a collection British vegetables prepared with that all-important Vanilla Bean twist. To complete this very special meal we couldn’t think of anything more luxurious than our 70% coco melting chocolate fondants with gold leaf, winter blood orange and French xo cognac cream.
The finest selection of cold water seafood from our British lochs and seas. Delicately cooked and cured seafood presented on a platter with our chefs’ zesty celeriac remoulade. Perfect for a decadent dining occasion.
Designed for a grazing-style informal occasion with family and friends. This opulent buffet includes a selection of heart-warming meats, salads and sides. To complete this food station we have selected some small batch artisan cheeses and for the sweet toothed, our chefs have prepared some French macarons and salted caramel chocolates. This menu is bursting with lots of exciting local produce.
A collection of classic home-style dishes fully prepared and freeze-chilled on the day of creation. Simply pop the trays in the oven or poach in bistro bays in a pan of water. Our most popular family favourite is currently the British Isles fish pie and our Bourguignon of Surrey Hills beef!
