Comic Relief Gala Ball 2015

On Friday 23rd April 2015, foodbydish were delighted to cater for the Comic Relief Gala Ball at Old Billingsgate sponsored by Rymans. 520 guests enjoyed champagne and mocktails on arrival with a delicious selection of canapés including a red nose themed canapé of strawberry infused cucumber stuffed with goats cheese mousse and parma ham.

Guests then took their seats to enjoy a three course dinner hosted by Lenny henry and were served a starter of salmon gravlax and smoked salmon rillette with an apple and fennel sorbet and pickled blueberries. Main course was French trimmed breast of Guinea fowl with confit leg, potato dauphinoise and a borlotti bean, chorizo and leek cassoulet. The meal ended with a red nosed themed dessert; raspberry chocolate fondant with an oozing red centre and red passion fruit sorbet. Throughout dinner there were stellar performances from Lulu, Heather Small and the hilarious Kev Orkian followed by a charity auction after dinner.

Guests danced the night away until 2am sipping on Long Island Ice Tea served in Red Nose teapots.
