We have been lucky enough to cater at Studio Wayne McGregor for a number of years now having catered their event to announce the move into a new home at Sadler’s Wells Theatre a few years back and then their opening party at Here East in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in April 2017. It is such a beautifully designed and awe-inspiring venue and ballet studio.
You can’t believe the size of the space until you visit – with a 2 story building housing 3 ballet studios (two of the largest in London) sitting comfortably inside the building itself with vast ceilings and a number of elegant event spaces surrounding.
Studio Wayne McGregor is the creative engine for choreographer and director Wayne McGregor CBE, and the home of his life-long enquiry into thinking through and with the body.
We catered a private event there recently and this is what we served:
Vegan Beetroot & carrot tartar, mustard aioli & beetroot coral
Prawn & crayfish cocktail with lemon mayonnaise & chives in filo baskets
Miniature lamb burgers in brioche buns with fresh mint & feta buttermilk
Tandoori spiced fish cakes with chilli aioli
Vegan parmesan & basil polenta cakes with wild mushroom & tarragon emulsion
