It’s time to eat, drink and get married! Our first Tasting Event at Davenport House was a treat for the senses.
At Galloping Gourmet, we know that your wedding breakfast is one of the most special moments of your day. It’s a time to celebrate as newlyweds, dining together with your closest friends and family and taking time to relax and enjoy your surroundings.
In August 2017, we became the exclusive caterers and Events Team for Davenport House; a magical country house wedding venue in Shropshire that offers couples an exquisite setting full of history and grandeur for their special day. We can now support the venue with our expertise and passion for imaginative dining, complementing their exceptionally high standards with our impeccable catering and service. You could say we are a match made in heaven!
May 2018 saw our first Tasting Event at Davenport House; an opportunity for couples to sample our culinary delights while experiencing the venue in all its glory, fully dressed for a wedding. Musicians entertained the guests while they mingled over cocktails and canapés in the Great Hall and Drawing Room, meeting other couples and wedding suppliers and chatting to members of our Events Team.
Couples were then invited to enjoy a delicious three-course Tasting Menu incorporating elements from the Galloping Gourmet wedding food packages, from roast fillet of beef to dark chocolate fudge cake with a brown butter toffee cookie. The Galloping Gourmet wine tasting station was also on hand, giving couples the chance to sample various tipples that they could choose to complement their wedding menu.
With exquisite food, a lively atmosphere and an idyllic setting, the Tasting Event was certainly one to remember, making us all the more excited about the forthcoming weddings!
