The Christmas Party Team Get A Taste Of What's To Come

Fri 14 Sep 2018

On 7th September, the Christmas Parties team made a visit to our catering offices in Bermondsey to get a taste of the delicious food our shared parties are offering this festive period. Smart Hospitality is the dedicated caterer for Christmas parties at Battersea Evolution, Finsbury Square and Willows Farm, delivering exceptional catering experiences to thousands of guests each year. To give you an idea of just how professional these caterers are, on some nights they make 3,000 canapés per half hour and still maintain the utmost quality they are renowned for.

Long before the tasting, the Christmas Parties team worked alongside our Group Executive Chef, David Ridgway, to craft delicious menus and choose accompanying wines that would deliver a truly outstanding catering experience.

Offering different themed events at Battersea Evolution, Finsbury Square and Willows Farm requires the creation of perfectly suited menus for each venue. You can find the individual menus on their respective Christmas party websites (links below), but we thought we’d give you a small taste of what’s to come with a few of the delectable canapés the team tried… 


Battersea Evolution: Around the World In 80 Days

  • Chargrilled cheeseburger with Monterey Jack cheese served in mini seeded brioche buns
  • BBQ chicken and coriander empanadas
  • Seafood dim sum with ponzu dipping sauce

Finsbury Square: Christmas in New York

  • Toasted Reuben sandwich with salt beef, mustard and pickles
  • Mini cheese pretzel dogs
  • Waldorf salad

Willows Farm: Après

  • Tartiflette Alpine gratin with Reblochon cheese
  • Mini fish pie served in new potatoes with Swiss cheese topping
  • Alpine burger with cheese and pickles served in soft burger buns

The team trialled and tested all the canapés, starters, mains and desserts for Battersea Evolution, Finsbury Square and Willows Farm, and it was safe to say, at the end of the afternoon, their stomachs were incredibly satisfied! After the tasting, the team gave their positive feedback to the chefs (of which there was a lot) and advised of any improvements they could make to ensure that everything will be perfectly prepared and served on the night.

We work tirelessly all year round to ensure our Christmas parties across London and St Albans are to the absolute best standard and leave guests with great memories to last a lifetime. And it’s not just exquisite dining experiences that our parties offer, but stunning theming, great attention to detail, and exhilarating entertainment all combined.
