Cocktail parties can be a very glamorous way to organise a stress-free night for a social or corporate gathering without selling the family silver. We had a fantastic party at Waiheke a couple of weeks ago which I did the catering. We served  Canapés, then Sliders then Dessert.

Just one big tip…Don’t forget to order extra glassware!

Oysters for your wedding menu

The French love oysters. Throughout history, oysters have been rumoured to be aphrodisiacs! While Nico has no proof of that, he knows the act of sharing oysters he prepares with your beloved will indeed be a beautiful sensuous experience!!!

Pictured above is Te Matuku oysters with balsamic vinegar and fried leek julienne.

Croquembouche wedding cake, traditional French wedding cake

Croquembouche wedding cake is a traditional French wedding cake. It translates to “crunch in the mouth”. This says it all! You get the hard caramel crunch as a first hit, then, the softness of the choux and crème patissiêre comes to smooth it all! A real winner.

I put this one together last week-end at a very entertaining dinner party in Palm Beach, in Waiheke Island, for a 50th birthday bash.

I hope you enjoyed it David, Happy birthday again!Croquembouche wedding cake
