for an Outdoor Event
Shoots, Picnics, Garden Parties & Barbeques
Creating satisfyingly hearty foods for shoot entertaining is some of
the most enjoyable catering we do at Scrumptious. We prepare deliciously
warming pies, juicy joints of meat, mouth watering slow cooked dishes,
imaginative vegetable recipes and traditional puddings using the best
of what is available in the autumn and winter seasons. Of course, in
addition to that there is the delight of using the game sourced from
the estate. We have an exciting range of tried and tested game recipes
that ensure the produce is served in the best way possible. As a family
we experiment with new recipes too which may appear on your menus if
we vote highly for the dishes!
Depending on your needs, the facilities on the estate and the style
of catering you require we tailor make a shoot package to suit. We may
come to your estate for the whole day for example. Starting by serving
the morning refreshments, then spending the morning preparing a 'scrumptious'
meal ready to serve when the guns return at lunchtime to then finish
the day with tea and homemade cake. Another option is for the team to
prepare the entire menu at the Scrumptious premises ready to cook and
serve in the gun room. We also deliver complete packages ready to be
heated and served if looking after the guns is something you have always
Depending on your requirements,
our foods can be prepared and presented with more of a rustic and traditional
style. Instead you might rather enjoy more of a fine dining experience.
At Scrumptious we can confidently cater for both. We use our lengthy
experience of shoot catering and our love of both cooking and eating
game to create dishes that have interesting flavours, that can withstand
changes to the dining schedule and are popular with both male and female
guns. We are pleased to cater for breakfasts, morning coffee, lunch,
afternoon tea and dinner. We are happy to travel to estates throughout
the country and stay on site too.
When the British weather permits, a picnic is so enjoyable. We can create
a wonderful hamper of treats that would suit an afternoon with the family
at a National Trust venue, an open air summer concert with friends or
a day at the races for example. We are proud of the different foods
we have designed for our picnics. We have an endless supply of ideas
that can fulfil the need for easy to grab finger foods or fork buffet
items for when relaxed grazing is planned. We encourage our clients
to create their bespoke menu from our list if individually priced foods.
Some clients enjoy a complete picnic whilst others reap the benefits
of enjoying a bit of their own cooking combined with a bit of help from
Scrumptious. We like the majority of your picnic to consist of homemade
foods but we do list a selection of locally produced drinks, crisps,
cheeses, olives, dressings and condiments for you to choose from. We
can provide any alcohol on request.
We can deliver the picnic to your home, carefully packed to remain chilled
for the journey. We can provide high quality disposable crockery, cutlery,
'glasses', tablecloths or napkins too.
Many of our clients enjoy
attending a horse trials or rural shows as a visitor or competitor.
We recommend our picnics as we can create a package that will suit an
'on route' picnic, a picnic that needs to be carried some distance or
a picnic that can enjoyed in the horsebox, with items that may be served
Garden Parties &
A garden party
or barbecue conjures up thoughts of fun and relaxation. At Scrumptious
we can contribute to this by providing you with a stunning barbecue
or buffet, allowing you to unwind and enjoy the party. Our trusted
butcher supplies us with produce of outstanding quality which
can be fully prepared and marinated ready for you to cook or
the experienced Scrumptious team to cook for you. For more information
