One of our favourite things about the onset of the summer season is the barbecue and street food menus our kitchens put together. This year our chefs have created some amazing dishes that top even last year’s spectacular offerings. In order to whet your appetite and to give you a flavour of what guests at a Regent’s summer party can expect this year, we’ve chosen some of our favourite dishes to showcase our new menus.
There are five fabulous cuisines to choose from this summer if you’re selecting from our barbecue menu – American, British, Moroccan, Caribbean and Smoke House. The traditional British dishes include classics with a twist like Hertfordshire BBQ-marinated chicken thigh burgers with smoked Applewood served in a soft white bap and strawberries and cream with short bread biscuits. If you think your guests would prefer something with a bit more of a kick, our Caribbean menu boasts a delicious Hot & fiery jerk spiced Blythburg pork belly, watercress and walnut yogurt dish. For sweet treats there’s a tangy, tasty Key lime pie.
Always popular with party goers at Regent’s are dishes from across the pond. This year our American menus are sure to please guests with delights including Cajun-spiced swordfish brochette with cilantro and lime yogurt and red onion salsa. Pudding options are equally as coveted and this season include truly decadent mini doughnuts topped with a salted caramel sauce. Next up in our barbecue selection, is an exciting and fragrant collection of Moroccan dishes like lightly-spiced lamb and olive koftas and fig and pistachio tartlets with honey yoghurt to follow.
And last, but by no means least, is our Smoke House selection. Main dishes include Southern-style smoked beef patties with Monterey Jack coating and for a veggie option, nut roast wellington. For desserts organisers can choose from a classic Eton mess and chocolate brownies. For organisers wanting to offer an eclectic range of dishes for their guests, the BBQ menus are interchangeable.
Dining alfresco is a rare treat in the UK and so we like to make the most of it when the small window of opportunity pops up. Our vibrant, colourful and lively street food stalls add another element of fun to our summer parties. Organisers can choose from a wide range of options including our New York Dirty Mac Bar, Fajita Bar, Sliders Bar, Taste of Italia, Homemade Ice Creams, Pick ‘n’ Mix Sweet Stall and the Doughnut Bar.
Organisers tell us the stalls offer guests great choice and the chance to try a range of different cuisines. The stalls also look fabulous and help move guests around the York Lawns ensuring a healthy flow through the event.
