September roundup - goodbye summer, hello autumn

Welcome to our first monthly roundup, where we share some of the highlights of how we’ve treated, pampered and otherwise spoilt the office teams we serve every day, complete with mouthwatering pics. This month we've given our office clients a dose of back to school nostalgia, celebrated the autumn, got them through the heatwave with hydrating salads and added a new client to our events services. Good times.

Read on for the full details.

Added value events

Added value are the events we organise to keep the work day interesting, at no extra cost to the client.

September 9 - Back to school cocktails The combination of alcoholic drinks and a back to school theme might seem incongruous (guess that depends which school you went to) but one of our offices wanted to celebrate the start of September with a bang, and a bang they had.

With a professional mixologist hired for the evening we had creative cocktails, beautifully presented to get the month going.

September 15 - Hydration salad bar Our salad bars involve one of our senior chefs visiting a site and laying out specially prepared produce, flavourings and our own handmade dressings for office teams to mix and match their favourites.

This month we trialled a new one - the hydration salad bar. This focussed on the most hydrating fruits and vegetables there are, included tomatoes, radishes, celery and watermelon. By sheer coincidence the salad bar clashed with the insane September heatwave, so it went down a treat.

To add some glamour we had guests Tapped Trees handing out their birch water to help customers wash down their salads.

September 16 - Mid autumn festival A Chinese and Vietnamese festival created to celebrate harvest time and the giant harvest moon. We decked out one of our units in decorations, and the most important thing to know is we had the cutest pastry pigs you’ve ever seen.

Bits and bobs

September 28 - Canapés at Teads While most of our time is spent bringing meals and treats to London’s daytime denizens, sometimes our chefs love the chance to get out and stretch their muscles at an evening function.

This month we were very excited to serve canapés for the first time at digital video producer Teads. We were doubly excited because it was the first event chef Dushaine has run on his own since joining our business four years ago - and the food looked fantastic. Nice one.
