Peyton Events hosted a British soirée at the Imperial War Museum (IWM) London to launch“Britain”, a collection of premium event menus. Designed by executive chef Paula O’Neill, the new event menus use only fresh, authentic and natural British ingredients primarily from small, independent producers who can guarantee breed and organically grown products.
Great British Menu judge, renowned restaurateur and creative director of Peyton Events, Oliver Peyton, engaged guests with his passion for the new menus which focus on the provenance, sustainability and quality of British produce.
Peyton said on the night “London is the most exciting city in the world, with the greatest chefs. For this menu, we didn’t want to use consolidated suppliers, but the best produce. This food is truly all about the provenance and quality we have – in Britain – and making the best of it.”
More than 200 event professionals attended the contemporary evening including representatives from BBC Worldwide, Deutsche Bank, Clifford Chance, Quintessentially, Big Group and Villiers London. A striking blue outdoor lighting design welcomed guests who proceeded to the reception foyer to find a bespoke installation of vintage tea cups filled with red poppies red and blue cornflowers creating a Union Flag, which also was a fabulous photo opportunity exploding on the tweet wall under #PeytonShowcase.
