What is a spherificator?

Sunday treats today playing with the spherificator.

What is a spherificator?

It’s a device that allows us to turn virtually any liquid into caviar-shaped pearls. A really funky way to add a bit of lusciousness to a dish. The tasty spheres in this photo are tabasco flavoured. But you can make gravy pearls, balsamic and much more. Jersey Kitchen are at the experimental stage at the moment but enjoying the process very much.

 

Accompanied by an amazing English sparkling wine from Ridgeview Estate

 

They are creators of world class sparkling wine, crafted with passion and dedication in England. Situated at the foot of picturesque South Downs, the cool climate is perfect for sparkling wine viticulture. The vineyard began in 1995, when Mike and Chris Roberts had a dream to create world class sparkling wine. 20 years later, production has increased to more than a quarter of a million bottles, sold across the world. They’ve won quite a few awards too… amongst them Winemaker of the Year, International Wine & Spirit Competition 2018.

 

We are so happy that grazing tables are still right on point and requested!

Because we all know that appetisers are the best part of a shindig, right?

For cocktail hours at weddings, baby showers, picnics, corporate events and in fact any good excuse for a party, family-style grazing tables are all the rage. Also called feasting tables, the format allows guests to casually mingle over drinks and bites as they pick on meat, cheeses, fruits, and other simple finger-foods. That means the tastiest food ever. And with the Jersey Kitchen creative team in full flow, they also look visually striking. It’s one of our favourite things to be let loose on.

This one was provided last night for a corporate clients wine tasting at ‘the hub’. It really is a feast for the eyes and the taste buds as you can see from these amazing photos by Paul Wright.

We’ve had some fantastic feedback from guests who experienced this immense grazing table.

“Having seen this first hand ourselves, it looks even better in person!
Incredible from Jersey Kitchen and highly recommend
them for your event catering!”

It was stunning. Thanks so much”

And from Cara Murphy on our facebook page

Jersey Kitchen did THE most amazing grazing table for a little party I had at home.
It tasted as good as it looked!”

barcelonas best food jersey kitchen

Jersey Kitchen are local caterers with international flavours.

So as part of our never ending search for new ideas for customers, we took a trip to Spain to find Barcelonas best food.

All in the name of research of course.

We spent our time exploring the streets, researching and of course, tasting these treats including some fabulous sea food!

 

And since we’ve been back in Jersey we’ve been creating some new dishes and menus celebrating Barcelonas best food but with a unique Jersey Kitchen twist. As always.

wedding after party

So what do you do when you’ve invited friends from all around the world to your wedding in Jersey?

You lay on an incredible wedding after party the next day of course!!

We produced one of our supersized grazing boards for guests to feast on before they fly their separate ways followed by a selection of mini desserts.

Bloody Mary’s were the order of the day! A grazing table is a great, informal way to cater for family and friends. And we love to create this colourful sensation.

What a magical Jersey wedding for Kate & Lawrence in the beautiful grounds of Seafield House.

This family home provided the perfect backdrop for a fabulous marquee reception.

“Superb service! That short rib of beef was something else!”

Plus a magnificent Croquembouche wedding tower

croquembouche

We were asked to make Croquembouche for a very special wedding.

As a general rule we don’t make wedding cakes, but this is a favourite and so we just couldn’t resist. It’s a dramatic, awe-inspiring centrepiece tower of profiteroles and is totally delicious.

The invention of the Croquembouche is usually attributed to Antonin Carême, who included it in his 1815 cookbook Le Pâtissier royal parisien, but it is mentioned as early as 1806. So it’s been going some time and has many many variations.

This one we created had over 1,100 choux pastries (profiteroles) in it, all of which we baked for this bad boy.

Each one is hand filled with a combination of pistachio, lemon, strawberry, chocolate and vanilla and decorated with edible viola flowers, fresh raspberries and blueberries. All held together with caramel.

There’s only one way to traditionally cut a Croquembouch – with a sword!!

The fantastic photos are by Nigel John.

Pride of Jersey

Jersey Kitchen had a great evening catering at the Pride of Jersey Awards last night.

Held at Le Manoir de Rooster in Trinity – the home of potato exporter Albert Bartlett – the event was hosted by former England international footballer Graeme Le Saux and Jersey-born soprano Georgi Mottram and attended by the 39 finalists and their families.

Well done to all our crew who served 223 guests seamlessly!

And of course to everyone nominated and the winners. There were 234 nominations across the 13 categories for 151 nominees with a total of 27,397 votes cast. It’s a fantastic event to be a part of, celebrating the extraordinary achievements of Islanders who go that extra mile to help others and to bring people together.

Thank you Rebecca Graham and Jono for choosing Jersey Kitchen as your beautiful Jersey wedding caterers.

We had such aa fabulous day at one of Jersey’s finest venues, the stunning Chateau Vermont. Here’s the words of the bride herself

Jersey Kitchen provided the most incredible catering.
From the canapés to the wedding breakfast right through to the stone oven baked pizza at the end of the night. We had so many compliments on the quality and taste of the food, especially from the vegetarians and vegans who had kimchi cauliflower pancakes followed by charred aubergine rolls with zataar and quinoa!

The slow cooked beef short rib fell off the bone and the pizzas in the evening were demolished in seconds. They also organised our day and it ran like clockwork. No wedding organiser needed. The beer keg was also a fantastic addition and I was allowed to pour the first pint for my new husband!”

As always in Jersey these amazing weddings are the result of a strong team of suppliers all working together.
