A Vegetarian wedding in Lewes? No one could do it better than London Catering specialists Skye Cooks! A wonderful setting deserves the very best of catering and service and Skye and her team are unwavering in their passion for providing these ingredients on the most special days.
A gorgeous selection of amuse-bouches were created. Parmesan and thyme shortbread stars topped with a creamy goats cheese and pink peppercorns, as well as some Beetroot and potato rosti with a juniper and Hendrix gin cured gravadlax.
The menu continued as the guests took their seats and were entertained with some classic new season asparagus accompanied with a lemon hollandaise, as asparagus should always be! The main course continued a light theme of the day with puff pastry hearts layered with baked goats cheese, oyster mushrooms and caramelised red onions. All this served with generous sides of steamed wild garlic leaves and baby spinach, warm puy lentil salad, buttered baby potatoes and flamed red pepper concasse.
And now for the star of the day: The pudding! Sweet teeth are always well-served when Skye’s team are on hand. Baby poached pear marsala, mascarpone and stem ginger on a cinnamon shortbread and a chocolate mousse cake spiked with cardamom. Sumptuous, decadent, and fulfilling: Skye Cooks.

Event date: 5th February 2011London Caterers Skye Cooks hit the Barbican earlier this month to cater for some of the leading lights of reggae at the Reggae Britannia celebration. The music and the artists took a lift from dishes such as Jerk Chicken with rice and peas, honey-flavoured coleslaw and sweet potato and a mouth-watering gumbo made with pimento and pumpkin, black beans and spices.
Some artists were even moved to comment on the authenticity of the food, among them Dennis Alcopone who came over all misty-eyed and nostalgic when it came to the Jerk Chicken and Gumbo, as his memories of Jamaica left him with a smile on his face.
The Reggae Britannia event was sponsored by BBC Four, who collaborated with influential reggae artists to celebrate the impact that reggae has had on UK’s music and culture. Dennis Bovell, the event’s musical director, ‘assembled a big band which included some of the most important reggae musicians in the British scene to back up a star cast of singers and toasters’.
The leading lights of british reggae such as Winston Reedy, Dave Barker, Pauling Black, Ken Boothe, Ali Campbell, Brinsley Forde and many others took to the stage. The event was a massive success and enjoyed by all, not least the catering wonders at Skye Cooks!
