There is nothing as gratifying as the joyful look of a child. For that reason, for all the members of the Marc Fosh Catering team, the service we provided last weekend was the most special thing. We were requested to serve a menu in a children’s birthday party where we offered canapés and something that filled us with excitement: ice-creams flavoured with nitrogen and fairy floss, everything made on-site, before the expectancy of the guests.
In the afternoon, the guests began arriving and they could taste the variety of canapés that we had prepared in Marc Fosh Catering. These were some original canapés, full of flavour and in accordance with the upcoming summer time. The weather was superb, with a radiant sun and a dream environment as the estate of Es Prat in Establiments is. This estate counts on some impressive views of Serra de Tramuntana, and an impeccable garden with swimming-pool and spectacular terraces where one can contemplate the sunset in Majorca. Undoubtedly, an absolute privilege that we were honoured to witness.
While the adults were chatting and enjoying the canapés around the different terraces, the children were having fun in the pool and playing in the garden, in a most amusing and joyful afternoon.
From Marc Fosh Catering, we mounted an awning where Katerina, our pastry making manager, made the multicolour fairy floss, as if we were in a real fair. The children were excited, eager to taste all the available flavours… orange, strawberry, lemon… Wherever you looked, you could see children holding their fairy floss, playing and queueing again to have seconds.
Soon after that, Kevin Becker showed up loaded with all the necessary gear to make the nitrogen ice-creams: a huge gas bottle from where the steam emerged slowly, and while it was shaken it would become an amazing ice-cream with intense flavours, such as chocolate and raspberry, and it could be served with cornets and a wide range of adornments (caramel, chocolate shavings, fritters, etc.). While the nitrogen steam converted into ice-cream, the children could not take their eyes off such a show. It was an absolutely magical process for them. Once finished, they could taste their favourite flavour, enjoying a genuine ice-cream made in gourmet style, hallmark of Marc Fosh Catering.
Undoubtedly, a quite amusing afternoon where we enjoyed providing with happiness those who most deserve it, children.
