2015 promises to be a huge year for rugby with the Rugby World Cup just around the corner in September. Are you organising a corporate dinner or reception around this time, or are you hosting office events over the games themselves? Well, let us help you with a little Rugby themed inspiration for your menus.
For a seated dinner the easy way to enhance the theme is to incorporate the team countries local cuisine into the menu. For an England vs. Wales game we have selected some local specialities to incorporate.
A Seated Menu for England vs. Wales
Chilled leek soup with laverbread, cream and Caerphilly cheese twill
English tasting plate
Mini braised beef cheek pie with a mini ale shot
Lancashire lamb hot pot with heritage potato crust
Classic beef wellington with port jus
Warm Welsh cake pudding with Glamorgan cream
Freshly brewed coffee and rugby ball truffles
For a less formal event, say an office get together over a game, make it easy grab food so people can still enjoy the game, or serve food prior to the match for best results.
Food stall ideas may include:
Argentinian street food, American sliders, South African boerewors sausage, Japanese yakitori – charcoal grilled chicken skewers, soba noodles and sushi, Australian burgers with the lot! And not forgetting a pudding station with fun themed cake pops, popcorn, rugby ball buns, dessert empanadas with dulce de leche and salted caramel choc pots…
There is lots of fun to be had coming up with inspiring menus, so get in touch and we’ll be happy to create some menu ideas for your coming events.
