Recently I came across Ladiere Foods - an online food store stocked with the most delicious products that makes your mouth water by just looking at them. Their goal is to bring restaurant quality products to your doorstep, so they deliver anywhere in South Africa.
I have always in my head played with the idea of this one party in my lifetime where money will not be an option (not my wedding - every person should at least allowed two lavish parties in a lifetime!). This always involved getting fantastic caterers, but since I discovered Ladiere Foods, the picture has changed.
Now my no-expense-spared party will be a picnic with lots of items ordered from the Ladiere Online Store, lots of fresh, crusty bread form the local bakery and lots of Champagne. Yum. Foodie Heaven. And it really will not break the bank. I find their prices really affordable compared to luxury food products available in our supermsarkets. And it is also such a simple way of putting together a really, pretty, foodie party that your guests will love.
So here follows my party pic from Ladiere's online shop:
The Sweet: Carrot Cake & Chocolate Torte.
The Savoury: Wild Mushrooms, Artychokes, Wild Mushroom Strudel, Aubergine Chutney, Beetroot & Pink Peppercorn Chutney, Chicken Liver Pate, Pork Rilettes and Butter-rosemary roasted Nuts. These will all be servd with formagerie and salted rye biscuits. And then I will need to pop out to buy a selection of yummy cheeses and fresh bread. Done.
To Drink: Rosemary & Lemon Cordial and Champagne with Wild Hibiscus Flowers.
To serve with coffee: Almond & Blue cornflower nougat, Pink peppercorn meringues and almon florentines.
And everything is so beautifully packed, you will not need much in terms of decor.
It also makes for great gifts, who would not love to receive a Ladiere Food Hamper for their Birthday? I know I would!
