Catering catering catering

Yes papadeli sells cheese, yes we sell diving chocolates, and yes we have a cafe and delicious takeaway food counter - BUT did you know we also provide a brilliant CATERING SERVICE.  So far, most of our events have happened thanks to word of mouth as we haven't really advertised the fact that customers can enjoy our lovely food at parties, christenings, weddings, office lunches, launches, picnics - well, any event really, however small or large.
Some examples?
A sit down three course meal for 200 with large shared boards of charcuterie, pickles and breads, followed by big dishes of rich stews to be shared out followed by enormous chocolate mousse cakes and cheesecakes.
A Director's lunch of big ciabatta sandwiches, warm goat's cheese and sweet red onion tartlets, artisan cheese board with chutney and fruit, selection of handmade fabulous cakes washed down with elderflower bubbly.
A 60th birthday party for 100 where the birthday boy chose 10 of his favourite ingredients and we made up a buffet incorporating them (in this instance , he loves all things Moroccan so we made a range of babaganoush aubergine spiced salad, chickpeas with sweet and sour dressing, spicy sausage pastries, cous cous with preserved lemons and dried fruit.
Wedding cakes with a difference - 50 cup cakes or a massive tiramisu? How about a cheese wedding cake?

We also devise bespoke parties at our shop and cafe - birthday girl  had a band downstairs in the beautiful deli whilst guests sipped fizz and nibbled on canapes, then went upstairs to the intimate cafe for a wine tasting, followed by a three course meal.  How gorgeous is that?

So you see, we can do all sorts of events (did I mention the barbecue for 200 with chargrilled spatchcock, whole bream and seafood kebabs?) and every mouthful is as delicious as you would expect from such a great company.

So don't forget to come and see us when you're planning your next party!
