A couple of weeks ago, there was a very important wedding taking place. It was held just on the outskirts of London, in Surrey and we were providing specialist evening food from our wedding crepe stand. It was such an important wedding that it unfortunately meant that we missed another one taking place in Windsor – apparently somebody called Harry was getting married to an American woman. We had a much more important wedding to attend so it meant that we missed it. But rest assured, if we hadn’t been making crepes, we would have been glued to our TV screens. Oh yes. You can count on that.
The good thing is, we managed to see most of the highlights on TV and read about it extensively in the press. And of course, with the monarchy being ever-so popular and this Harry guy being such a stylish, everyday sort of dude, whatever happened at that wedding will no doubt be mimicked at weddings up and down the country, from Scotland to Somerset. So we pored over the media reports to see what we might gather to help make our wedding catering service with extensive 20 flavour menu even better than it already is.
And it didn’t take long for us to discover what we were missing. Ok, we might pride ourselves on providing street-food wedding catering before street-food was even ‘a thing’. We might feel proud that other companies providing crepes at weddings regard us as the benchmark for crepe catering and steal our best ideas. We might even have hugely swollen egos about our idea for a one-stop option for both sweet and savoury options at weddings. But we couldn’t believe that we had missed such an obvious, innovative development (devised by this Harry guy, it seems) which had set the media into a frenzy: bowl food.
Of course! Instead of serving the pancakes on a high quality disposbale plate or convenient cone, what was required for that extra bit of class was to throw it in a bowl! Voila! No longer just common-or-garden wedding catering, but now something new, exciting and truly world-changing. Grub thrown in a bowl! A bowl! How could so many wedding catering companies have missed such an obvious enhancement to their boring fare! A bowl is what was required!
In the spirit of this inspired, creative innovation, which sent the media and wedding industry into such raptures, we took this idea and meditated upon it. We pondered it long and hard and really got to work on trying to tap into that genius-level thinking which miraculously devised this simple yet devastatingly effective development. And after many days and hours of consideration, and thousands of pounds spent on research and development, we are happy announce that we have hit upon what we believe to be the next big thing in wedding catering. It’s cool, it’s new and we believe, will be a perfect fit for the next Royal wedding (whenever that may be) : cold baked beans, eaten straight from the tin.
With a silver spoon, of course.
