Jamie Comes to the Riverbank!
We’re delighted to be taking part in one of the country’s greatest traditional events next month – at Remenham Farm during Henley Royal Regatta.
Jamie Oliver’s Fabulous Feasts has teamed up with The Copas Partnership at the Courtyard Enclosure, which affords superb riverside views of the racing action on the Thames from its private riverside garden… We’ll be offering up a bevvie of foodie delights for Regatta week from Wednesday 29th June to Friday 1st July. The Fabulous Feasts team have created both traditional lunch menus served at reserved tables and English afternoon teas, as well as adding an air of the Mediterranean with the finest anti-pasti.
The week will culminate with a gorgeous ‘Vintage Regatta’ themed party on Regatta Saturday 1st July. Coupled with our funky food, the packages available allow guests to soak up the regatta atmosphere and party the day away, with a spectacular firework’s display and, as dusk gives way to evening, the DJ is sure to keep you celebrating.
The Courtyard Enclosure is really something very special for Regatta enthusiasts. Its position means you’re guaranteed superb views of the racing course and, this year, the Enclosure’s ever popular reputation is set to soar with an exciting re-launch – namely as the “Vintage-Styled Regatta Party”!
With an event in the same county as the Fabulous Feasts’ kitchens, we’re taking the opportunity to incorporate into our menus some gorgeous products from smaller growers and producers, to celebrate the best Oxfordshire fare around. Our Newton Purcell asparagus spears will be chargrilled with punchy pickled cucumber, chilli, mint and shavings of Montgomery cheddar and then we’ve got beautiful, 20-hour slow-cooked shoulder of Oxfordshire lamb. The lamb is reared at Montague Farm in Hethe, which we have to give a special shout out to as the Elkington family’s lamb is the best tasting we’ve ever had and is produced to incredibly high welfare standards. Both of these seasonal delights alone are produced less than three miles from our door!
And of course, in keeping with the ‘Vintage Regatta Party’ theme we’ll have more than a few nods to lost Britain! The best English strawberries served with fruity Prosecco jelly and bashed up mint sugar, a medley of proper old school finger sandwiches using bread from Jamie’s own bakery, The Flour Station and British salt beef baps with beautiful dill pickles and kicking English mustard.
Decked out in traditional Henley (smart) dress code, enjoying a glass of bubbles by one of the most iconic stretches of water, in an exclusive enclosure … all we need now to complete the perfect English picture is to be blessed with shine, not rain!
Prepare for strings of beautiful bunting, gorgeous delights to feast on and much merriment by the river! For more information and to book your party, please visit www.henleyregatta.com
