Client Irene Kjaer was celebrating her 40th birthday and wanted a catered 4 course Danish dinner party for her friends, served at her home.
Irene, a Dane, wanted her friends to experience Danish food without having to cook it herself – after all it was her birthday! She wanted it fully served and cleared so she could just enjoy the evening with her friends and not worry about the clearing up. We discussed some of her favourite dishes and typical Danish ingredients – cured fish, pork, frikadeller, crispbreads, cheeses. Like us, Irene was keen on using the best quality ingredients.
Worked closely with Katherine on the menu and everything came out exactly as I had hoped for! It was great that we could create a Danish menu with food that was slightly different from what my friends normally eat – so it was a new experience for all. Katherine took great pride in all the food, but I think the home cured beetroot salmon took it to a different level – with pictures arriving in my inbox for days before to show the amazing changes in the colour of the fish. Obviously the cheeses had to be bought in, but again a real level of passion was shown in sourcing just the right ones – which was beautifully complimented with the homemade (and very authentically ‘Danish tasting’) chutneys and walnuts. Lovely food, beautifully presented in our own home, which I didn’t have to cook or serve – so we could just be with our guests. Very professional service – would highly recommend for any special occasion! Thank you!
