'Encounter' - Catering for Bristol's Artisans

Earlier this month we had the pleasure of providing the catering for Yonder Collectives latest event which ran under the theme ‘Encounter’.

This was based on encountering ordinary things in unexpected ways. This gave the team at Griffett Catering a great opportunity to do what they do best – be creative with the produce and present food in different ways.

The Food

Spring Bomb

For one of our canapés we introduced our well developed ‘Spring Bomb’, delicate, fragrant flowers with young herbs and preserved garlic emulsion served on a bed of live moss.

Yuzu Mackerel

Another was yuzu marinated Mackerel fillets served on a bed of sea rocks, seaweed and a scented yuzu vapour.

The Edible Garden

The Edible Garden

For our version of the edible garden, we served a selection of raw seasonal vegetables. The base was made from a preserved and smoked aubergine purée with an edible soil of home-brewed stout. To add effect we served this canapé on a vintage garden spade head.

We feel the menu tied in well with the theme of the event and complimented the surroundings of the venue Salt Cafe and their ethos of using ethical foods within their own cooking.

It was great to be involved with such a creative bunch of Bristol folk and to meet some of the people who attended the event.

Please take your time to check out the people who made this event possible:
