BBQ hire in London

BBQ food

English weather must be the most talked about subject.  Will it be hot, will it rain, can we expect snow this winter.  And the weather forecasts are not forecasts but guesswork sometimes.  I can hear it in my head,  ‘and the weather for tomorrow is – sunny, with perhaps showers from the east. Maybe a slight westerly breeze which may cause it to cloud over later’.  Does that sound familiar?

Anyway, summer’s coming and it is BBQ time whatever the weather and what better way than to use a professional gas BBQ. Cinders are possibly the leading UK manufacturers of barbecues and at Adams Catering Hire, they are the only ones we supply.  Renowned for their reliability and ease of use, they are sturdy and give the right impression and do the job exceptionally well. Powered by propane gas they can be sited anywhere in the garden, gas can be supplied when you hire from Adams. Gas barbecues win every time for their ability to control the flames and temperature of the heat.

All food is great for barbecue food, but you do have to make sure that the food is cooked through thoroughly. My favourite is fish and it is so easy, just wrap in foil, add some lime juice and a few herbs, oh its so good.  But, my children love all the burgers and sausages that I can cook. To give food flavour, I always marinade mine the night before and you can use so many different herbs, spices, yoghurts and even supermarket mixes these days to add a smokey flavour.  Lots of healthy salads and what a great day can be had by all. Chuck in some wine and a few garden games and it’s a fabulous way of getting the whole family together for fresh air and exercise.

You can use Adams for all of your event hire in London and surrounding areas, just view our web site for more information.

Event hire in London for your family party

Child hunting for easter eggs in the back yard...

Easter Party at my House

Easter Sunday at my house is always a family gathering. Hopefully the weather is dry and this year we were lucky, although we have had some wet ones.
The list of guests always includes my best friend of 30 years, my husband and 3 girls, various cousins & their kids, a few aunts and uncles and a couple of very close friends. Not a large party but about 25 of us meet at my house to renew gossip and just because we love to meet up. We play silly games and the obligatory Easter egg hunt, and a lot of eating and drinking.
But here lies the problem, do I get out all my odd china, glassware & cutlery or do I get it from Adams Catering Hire? It’s a no-brainer! Adams Catering Hire makes it so simple; they can help you get event hire for your function.
30 large plates/small plates & bowls
30 knives, forks & spoons
50 tumblers and 50 wine glasses
10 serving plates & bowls and serving cutlery
30 linen napkins (so much nicer than paper)

And, an extra fridge – it’s been a hot Easter and it kept the beer and wine cool.
They will deliver, collect & even WASH UP. All you do after the party is put the equipment back in the specially designed boxes. It’s just so easy!
This all meant that on the day I had all the right equipment, all to hand, no searching for an extra plate for an extra guest or having to wash up a glass before you could have a drink.
Adams Catering Hire can provide just the basic equipment like mine for a few guests or for a huge banquet for 1000’s of guests.
So, for your next little party – give Adams a call – we can provide event hire in London for you too.

Getting ready for the 25th Showmans Show

The Showmans Show

It is 25 years since the first show was staged, the 2010 event on October 20th & 21st at Newbury will be the great celebration!
In 1984, following 16 years of successfully publishing the annual Showman’s Directory, Stephen & Jean Lance
organised an event they called ‘The Showman’s Directory Comes to Life’ at the Newark Showground; there were
no more than 80 exhibitors and around 750 visitors attended. The Show grew and quickly became known as ‘The
Showman’s Show’. Initially it was held biennially and at different venues around the country but thanks, in part, to
the general and rapid expansion of the Event Industry, in 1993 the show settled to become an established and
annual event held at the Newbury Showground.
One of the greatest attributes of this event is that it offers unrestricted scope in the way exhibitors are able promote
themselves; huge stages, screens and multi-level structures can be erected, roadway laid and entertainment
performed in an environment in which they are likely to be used; the sky is the limit!
From its small beginnings in 1984 The Showman’s Show has evolved to become an event that attracts over 350
exhibitors and in excess of 4,500 visitors over two days and shows no signs of slowing down 25 years from its
conception. Each year suppliers apply for space as they realise that this is an exhibition that they should attend in
order to secure new leads into the events market. A visitor need not look further to ensure their event’s success; it
provides a stimulating and buzzy one-stop-shop for organisers of events large or small.

museum of everything

Adams Catering Hire recently had the great job of delivering to The Museum of Everything in Sharpleshall Street, London NW1 on behalf of The Zetter Hotel.

Well, what a combination.

You had the great chefs of The Zetter preparing a meal fit for a king at a venue with a wonderful ambience many would envy.

And as from 13th October the Museum of Everything is set to display an eclectic collection of art from British pop artist, Sir Peter Blake.

Simply entitled Exhibition#3, the installation will be the largest ever created by the legendary artist, who was inspired by Beatles memorabilia, his love of self-taught art and anonymous artefacts.

As part of the Frieze art fair, the exhibition will showcase new and non-traditional art by artists from around the world.

The exhibition also includes a recreation of the great Victorian show Mr Potter’s Museum of Curiosities, which inspired many artists such as Damien Hirst.

The small yet well-established museum will reveal its new exhibition next month, following the success of its first two exhibitions, Exhibition#1 and Exhibition#2.

Canapes, bowl food & shots

Canapes, bowl food & shots are the latest way to feed your guests easily.

There are several major benefits for the Client for this sort of event not least being the choice that can be given but also a smaller venue is need as standing guests take less space than seated.  There is also the factor of furniture that does not need to be brought in.

The delights of these smaller portions are perfect, you can experiment with food and colours that perhaps you wouldn’t with a large plated meal. Guests have a chance to sample exotica that they may not have experienced before and it gives them all a showcase of the Caterers talents.

Next on the list is dishes and glassware to serve the delicious morsels in, Adams Catering Hire hold a wide selection of miniture dishes and bowls in many colours to compliment the food to be served.  Two of the most popular being the traditional white tasting bowl with small fork for a larger serving or the small teardrop canape spoon in black or white for a bite sized portion.
