Most of the catering we provide is in capital cities - London, Paris, Delhi! But sometimes, we also go further afield and cater in the countryside too. Recently, we were catering for a large stately home in Oxfordshire for a private event.
The mixture of the stunning backdrop of the stately home really added so much ambiance to the party. There is such a different feel to being in the countryside, as there is so much more space to play around. There's more room for guests to mingle, more places for our canapés to be circulated. On top of that, the beautiful artwork on the walls and the great British grandeur of the building just adds that wow factor to the whole event. It's not every day we get out to the country, so we wanted to makes sure our catering reflected the beautiful Spring weather and the beautiful stately home location.
Summer canapes of watermelon with feta, basil and balsamic glaze were a beautiful refreshing palate cleansing canape. Our chicken liver parfait and salmon blinis were also great British classics which suited the stunning back drop perfectly. We loved how everyone was enjoying our luxury catering so much and it really made for a fabulous event.
The event was also partnered with the luxury minibus company Sprinters Travel which provided the transport to this Oxfordshire country house for the guests arriving at the party.
If you have a party coming up and are looking for a luxury London caterer to provide canapes, sit down meals or sushi platters just let us know. Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look forward to helping you arrange your perfect party with Italian or Japanese cuisine.
The whole team at Con Gusto Catering is so proud of our sister restaurant Con Gusto restaurant.
For the third year in the row it has won the prestigious Diner's Choice 2019 awards which is awarded by Open Table! Con Gusto restaurant is a fine dining Italian restaurant based on the Royal Arsenal. They specialise in typical handmade Italian cuisine and the location is in a beautiful historic guard room along the river Thames.
The Diner's Choice award is even more important as the romantic little restaurant won the title for three great categories. Con Gusto was awarded the title of Best Food, Best Italian Restaurant and Best Romantic Restaurant in London.
All three are fantastic accolades and no one is quite sure which their favourite is. Though to be awarded Best Food is really quite something, and a title the team of chefs duly deserve. The Con Gusto team, whether at the restaurant or in the luxury catering always pride themselves on the quality of the dishes they create. Made with years of experience, passion and dedication, they make sure everyones dining experience is unique.
One reason why the team was so happy to receive the award of best food, best romantic restaurant and best Italian is because it is voted for by diners as being the best. Con Gusto was elected by feedback from diners who booked through OpenTable and also only from those people who had dined with us. This means it is voted on by genuine praise only and only from verified diners. We truly are so ecstatic with this award and we are so proud of our sister restaurant to be receiving this recognition.
The team at Con Gusto is always pressing forward hoping for that Michelin inspector in order to hopefully receive one day their true aim - to be in the Michelin Guide or to have a Michelin Star at Con Gusto. The team work hard each day hoping that they are one step nearer and nearer to this goal.
Thank you to all of you who have dined at Con Gusto Restaurant on the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich and who therefore helped us win this fantastic title.
Following on from our nomination acceptance from the Business Excellence Awards by Lux Magazine, we are delighted to say that we went on to win. For three years in a row now, we have been voted by various awards companies as the Best Luxury Catering company, and we are so proud at the beginning of 2019 to have been bestowed such an accolade again.
With their expert panel of judges they performed an in-depth research phase. Laura Hunter who is the Assistant Awards Manager kindly granted us our award, saying: "it is with absolute pride that I can inform you that Con Gusto has been deemed successful in this year's Business Excellence Awards as Best Luxury Catering Company 2019 - London.
As the years go on, Con Gusto has strived to always improve its catering for VIP clients, ranging from royalty, to celebrities to HNWIs. Every client is different and we always strive to create a bespoke menu for them which is perfect for their event needs. When they have culinary preferences we will do everything they ask - if they ask for example, for spelt flour to be used for their handmade pasta we of course source the best spelt flour and make it with pride.
Most of our clients are based in London and so is our head office, yet sometimes, we find ourselves much farther afield, catering even as far as in VIP houses in India or other times from the sunny climes of Monte Carlo.
We are so happy with the outcome of the Lux Business Excellence Awards 2019, and even more for the category which we believe perfectly defines us. As London's best luxury caterer we are even more proud of this title and that we win it year after year. It gives pride to our staff and our team who work tirelessly back of house, and confidence in our clients who can see that our Italian catering team is promoted yet again as the best luxury caterer. Our sushi team who who provides sushi catering to our high end clients are equally proud of this accolade.
We have fun at Con Gusto Catering as we never know what client is going to call next. We specialise in intimate business lunches for UHNWIs or HNWIs in their homes, as well as party catering and business catering. Sometimes for businesses it could be just a small business lunch in their offices or a full gala. We love the unexpected nature of catering and how every event is so different.
On January 28th, we provided catering for the newly launched Global Makeup Awards. This awards looks at celebrating the best in newly launched makeup and beauty products from the last year. For their inaugural launch they hired out a private club in central London and invited all the top beauty journalists from the field, as well as the brands themselves who would be up for nomination.
Con Gusto Catering was delighted to serve beautiful, delicate canapés and a champagne reception to truly kick off the launch of this new beauty awards in fashion and style. With signature pink cocktails by our trained cocktail mixologist, it was the perfect way to launch in a fun, imaginative style. The sleek white venue was the perfect contrast to the pink themed event - what else do you expect from the Global Makeup Awards?!
We hope they truly enjoyed their launch and we look forward to seeing
