After two years of no civic dinners, well very few dinners at all it was great to start the year off catering for Okehampton Town Council and their Civic Dinner.

This was the last large event that we catered for in 2020 so it was great to kick of the year catering for these guests once again. The dinner has guest Mayor’s from all over Devon attending as well as the local council and guests that help in the community.

It was noticed by all that the Okehampton town crest colours are also the same as the Ukraine colours of blue and yellow, a moment had to be shared to think about what is happening in this country at the moment and to send thoughts to them.

We served a three course dinner that included smoked haddock and cheddar fishcakes with a watercress dip, wild mushrooms, smoked bacon in a tarragon cream sauce on sour dough toasts and spring vegetable soup along with artisan breads and Devon Butter.

For the main courses we wanted to offer a catering option of three choices, which were slow roasted beef steak in a brandy and peppercorn sauce with a pastry croute,

salmon fillet with a gremolata crumb and a lemon and dill sauce, or a butternut squash, beetroot and chestnut wellington with a marsala sauce. These were all served with a selection of fresh vegetables and potatoes, that Katie happily delivered too the guest tables.

After dinner a magician took to the stage for a little bit of magic and was followed by a raffle to raise charity funds.

It was great to be back catering at this event again and seeing lots of Oaktree friends from far and wide.
