Plaisterers’ Hall Food Festival Launch

Plaisterers’ Hall, the largest livery hall in the City of London, officially reopened last night following an extensive refurbishment, hosting a food festival curated by in-house caterer Create Food and Design for 400 specially invited guests. Those who attended enjoyed a selection of Create’s best food and drinks, as well as food stalls from the caterer’s top London-based suppliers. The bespoke Create menu featured the finest produce from each supplier.

Food stalls were provided by suppliers who all demonstrate Create’s commitment to using and supporting locally sourced produce such as Rubies in the Rubble, which specialises in relishes and chutneys made from ingredients that might otherwise have been discarded. Seafood was provided by First 4 Fish, and smoked by the Create team. Fenns of Piccadilly, which supplies Create’s best dry-aged beef and lamb, provided quality meat at its stall.

Guests got a chance to enjoy a taste of the Mediterranean at the Belazu stall. Create uses their innovative Mediterranean ingredients in its dishes. Le Pain Nouveau, Create’s bread supplier, provided a range of artisan baked products, including its famous sourdough loaves paired with flavoured butters. An extensive range of specialty British farmhouse cheeses was provided by Harvey and Brockless. Guests also enjoyed Solstice’s UK-sourced, locally grown produce at its stall.
