After weeks of tastings, plating and cooking, our preferred event caterers, Create, have launched their new Spring Summer 2014 menus. The Create team have scoured the UK coastlines, farms and fields for the finest seasonal produce that our fair isle has to offer. With every seasonal menu Create design, their aim is always the same; to produce ‘real’ food that is carefully sourced and designed to be visually appealing and have intense flavour.

Here’s a sneak preview of what you can expect this summer.
